Destiny: Rise of Iron Details Revealed


Bungie has officially announced the upcoming expansion for Destiny called Rise of Iron and it returns one of the most beloved weapons of year one. 

Rise of Iron opens up a new area south of the Cosmodrome called the Plaguelands and will have players fighting against Fallen mutants. Join Lord Saladin as you battle the threat that has taken the lives of many Iron Lords. The new expansion will include a story revolving around the fate of the Iron Lords, new weapons, armor, strikes, social space (most likely Felwinter Peak), crucible maps and mode, and a new raid. Take a look at the reveal trailer for Rise of Iron down below.

The Gjallahorn makes its return in the new expansion with an all new look. Players can receive the Iron Gjallahorn by preordering the expansion, which will retail at $30. If you don’t preorder, and still want the Gjallahorn, players can unlock the beloved weapon by completing a quest in the expansion.


Players playing on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 will need to upgrade their systems in order to play Rise of Iron. After August, Bungie will allow players playing on the Xbox 360 and PS3 to port their characters to the current gen, but the transfer must be within the same family.


Destiny: Rise of Iron will be released on September 20th, 2016 for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
