A fan of Bungie's science fiction shooter Destiny discovers the new Trophies and Achievements to make their way into the game through its next expansion Rise of Iron.
Thanks to the would-be Guardian and subscriber to Destiny's official subreddit known as "Uberwolf_," fans of Bungie's action-RPG can now view Rise of Iron's PlayStation 4 Trophies and the Achievements for Xbox One. According to the Redditor, the list is able to be found by anyone by going to the section of Trophies on PS4 after downloading and applying the latest 13.659 GB patch dubbed Update 2.4.0 through the PlayStation Network.
As seen in the names and descriptions for the Achievements and Trophies below, it seems as if fans will have plenty to do once Rise of Iron releases for Destiny players to tackle in a little over a week from now. Plus, as is to be expected, there is also a Hidden Trophy and Achievement, which many are speculating to be named "Sing The Iron Song," which will become unlocked after Guardians play the Rise of Iron theme on the bells in the Iron Temple.
- Mountain Climber : Complete the "King of the Mountain" Mission
- The Young Wolf : Complete the "Rise of Iron" quest.
- Student of History : Activate all Iron Lord Artifacts
- Hidden Trophy : ???
- Supremacy : Complete the "Glory and Taking of It" quest.
- Eye for an Eye : Complete the "Kovik's Sin" quest.
- Forging Ahead : Complete an encounter in the Archon's Forge.
- Spliced : Complete the "Wrath of the Machine" raid.
- Splicer God : Complete the "Wrath of the Machine" raid on heroic difficulty.
As far as other conjecture regarding the content in Destiny's Rise of Iron is concerned, some players presume that Kovik — that is, a Devil Splicer High Priest armed with what is called the Wretched Gaze machine gun — is the main boss of the new Wretched Eye Strike. Of course, the completion of the aforementioned Strike is more than likely tied to the unlocking of the "Eye for an Eye" Achievement and Trophy, considering the fact that finishing the "Kovik's Sin" quest makes it obtainable. Naturally, though, it remains to be seen exactly what the contents of each task will contain and require of players.
Beyond the fun that should be had unlocking Rise of Iron's Trophies and Achievements, Destiny fans ought to also expect an enjoyable experience trying out the game's forthcoming Legendary and Exotic Weapons. With that in mind, Guardians will get plenty of variety when it comes to the guns of the forthcoming DLC, as Bungie has included new sets for the Vanguard, Crucible, vendors, Trials of Osiris, and Iron Banner.
Returning once more to the notion of Rise of Iron's Achievements and Trophies, some fans online are already expressing how easy, simplistic, and relatively straightforward it will be to unlock them once the DLC officially drops. Should that actually be the case, one would hope that other fresh features in Destiny's impeding expansion like the newly added Supremacy PvP mode will keep players sated until Bungie finishes work on the title's proper sequel. As it happens, the studio has doubled down on its commitment to releasing the follow-up by letting fans know that its launch is scheduled for sometime in 2017.
Destiny's Rise of Iron is set to release on September 20, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
