Bungie and Activision have delivered the next storyline to their action shooter with a new large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron. Before there were Guardians protecting humanity, there were Iron Lords. The new, cinematic-filled adventure sets players on a heroic journey where they will join forces with one of Destiny’s greatest heroes, Lord Saladin, to battle an ancient, vicious enemy from the past and ultimately earn their place in history as Iron Lords themselves.
In Destiny: Rise of Iron, players will explore the noble backstory behind one of Destiny’s most beloved events, “The Iron Banner,“ and fight alongside its herald, Lord Saladin.
Mysteries and challenges await in Rise of Iron including: an all-new setting on Earth called “The Plaguelands,” a twisted, dangerous, and action-packed area that has been quarantined for centuries; a brand-new six-player Raid; Felwinter Peak, a new social space where players must ascend a snowy, mountain top to reclaim a Guardian stronghold from the enemy; cooperative three-player Strikes; more quests, weapons, gear; a new competitive multiplayer mode called Supremacy and four new PvP maps; a Light level increase to 385; a new mutated enemy faction of the Fallen, and more. The “Wrath of the Machine” Raid will go live at 6pm BST on Friday, 23rd Sept.
