The reveal is here and it sure looks good, I love the new area we’re getting and I love the fact Gjallarhorn is returning but the fact it’s a pre-order seems off to me, its a nice bonus to those who do pre-order, but as long as this is a weapon that can be obtained through playing the game I think would work best.
Destiny: Rise of Iron is the next expansion to the Destiny universe. It features an all-new cinematic story campaign set within The Plaguelands, a brand new location on Earth along with new weapons, armor, gear along and a six-player cooperative raid.
Destiny: Rise of Iron launches September 20th, 2016. Requires Destiny game and The Taken King (includes Expansions I & II)
Destiny: Rise of Iron will be available exclusively on current generation consoles – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. From here on out, we’ll be referring to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 as legacy consoles. If you’re using a legacy console to play Destiny, you’ll need to upgrade your hardware to experience the next adventure.
Our goal is always to bring every player from this awesome community along for the ride as we continue the story of Destiny. At the same time, we will also continue to support players who elect not to upgrade their console hardware. This Fall, you’ll still be able to play Destiny on legacy generation consoles, but that journey will occur on a separate path. Up to this point, player progression between current and legacy consoles in the same family has been shared by each account. This summer, that experience will fork into two parallel experiences that will no longer share progression.
