Now Playing: Destiny Rise of Iron: Everything We Know So Far

Destiny's Rise of Iron expansion is almost here. If you want to play the second it unlocks, Bungie has now confirmed precisely when the game's fourth add-on will arrive. In a statement on its website, Bungie revealed that Rise of Iron will come out tomorrow, September 20, at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET.

GameSpot will run a livestream event overnight to show off the new Rise of Iron content. Check back soon for more details on the specifics about this event.

Rise of Iron is Destiny's fourth expansion, following The Dark Below (December 2014), House of Wolves (May 2015), and The Taken King (September 2015). The expansion comes with a new snow-covered region called The Plaguelands, as well as new campaign and multiplayer content.

The expansion sells for $30 on its own. Also coming out tomorrow is Destiny: The Collection, a $60 bundle that comes with Destiny's base game and all DLC, including Rise of Iron. Unlike the three previous expansions, Rise of Iron is only coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

I dislike Destiny and sold it within 3 weeks while the game was in its vanilla stage, but I'll take a Destiny article any day of the week over Poke'mon go.

So are they still screwing xbox players with the non proverbial dildo, is the raid locked out from xbox for a year or is it two years now, or have they decided they can nickle and dime everyone equally if they stopped that.

This game is terrible. It's so awful. It's the worst game ever. It's so bad. I bought the expansion and will be ready to play with you guys tonight.

How pathetic is it we're still getting daily articles for this disaster of a game?

@Thanatos2k: Provably because haters of the game keep generating traffic with their comments.
Thanks for yours, btw: those of us that actually play the game are enjoying the articles :)

@Warlord_Irochi: I don't hate the game and I enjoy reading news on any game to be honest.

As Thanatos also stated, comments on a page do not generate revenue and only go towards consideration for further topics relating to the game. Once again, I don't mind reading about any game, comments and all.

@Warlord_Irochi: Ah the failed "Well you gave them traffic!" argument. Comments don't produce a single dollar for Gamespot, try again.

I also fail to understand how anyone who plays this trash "enjoys" articles like this anyways, which do nothing but parrot information that's splashed across your screen every time you actually play the game.

I'm excited, but I can't update the game. Not sure if it's a problem with Bungie, Sony, my ISP, my router, my modem, or my PS4. I thought this console stuff was supposed to be simple, haha. When I can play though, I'm sure it'll be a blast. I liked The Dark Below and The Taken King, some of the other parts were a little sketchy, but I've gotten a lot out of it.

Edit: This meaning the two updates they already released.

Bungie employees running rampant in this forum I see. Getting offended when someone doesn't like the game

Serious question to the fans: What exactly has changed since the launch of the base game that makes this playable? I want to know and potentially try to play it again.

I was one of many incredibly excited for Destiny and couldn't believe how poor the original game was. I might have made it to level 10. Really good shooting and great art, but it gave me absolutely nothing else. It was a game without any semblance of soul. It felt made by a computer. It has absolutely no narrative whatsoever and unlike a lot of games that play loose with this, it doesn't provide any context for anything either. Who are you and why are you resurrected at the onset? Who are the Fallen and these other guys we're suppose to shoot? Who the f@ck is anyone in this game? All of those issues with the IP just feed into the worst mission structure imaginable. The same exact stuff over and over.

I still haven't given up on this game. I've never had more faith that there's a way for me to like a game I've absolutely hated. I must be ignorant of something. The success of the (expensive) DLC and expansions points to this. I'm genuinely asking for a fan here to give me the details. What's better now and why? Should I buy Taken King, Rise, or this all in one collection?

@JamesHetfield89: All of the expansions combined add a bit more to the story, the TTK stuff wasnt bad, and some new missions, raids and activities. Its pretty much the same thing as vanilla but a lot more of it.

Part of the problem is a lot of stuff that made the expansions not a total waste of money was things that aren't really relevant anymore, like events and the items which arent scaled up with the new releases. They may have addressed that at this point but I dont follow it closely anymore. I cannot buy RoI for $30 in good conscience considering I've already spent ~$120 on the previous stuff but imo the whole package for $60 isnt a bad deal if they somehow made the old stuff relevant to the game again.

@newagegamersare: Most don't hate the game, they hate the pricing policy. I have already spent around £125.00 sterling. It's too much for what it is. Take a look at GTA online and tell me what you think.

@gotrekfabian: To each his own I suppose. I played GTA Online and got bored of it rather quickly. I am not sure how it fairs now, as I played it on PS3, but there were no raids or other game modes like those. One of the reasons I love Destiny is that type of game play. Playing with a clan or what not can be very entertaining. Even without that though, it still has a lot of content to run through.

@SprSynJn: Whilst not called raids there are the online heists which amount to GTA V's equivalent of the raid. I'm not a fan of GTA online either but have a great deal of online friends who play regularly. RockStar have shown how free DLC with the option of in game purchases can work. I'd be willing to bet that there are very, very few people who have paid anywhere near what Destiny gamers have been charged over the last two years.

Obligatory- people still play this?

People STILL pay for content even if they bought a season pass? What a scam.

@wtf_666: Obligatory: You still think that's clever to say after being proven wrong by millions of players? Give it up and find something else to hate already. What a waste of a human life.

@Tanares: If you really want to get into it, a waste of a human life (millions as you so put it) is spending countless hours with a re-skinned video game to collect a new piece of pointless armor.

@dashaka: Playing a game you enjoy, regardless of which one it is, is not in any way a "waste".
Writing in the comment section of a game you dislike just to insult it's players, on the other hand, is the best example of that.

Is it even legal to charge people for a season pass and then do this kind of stuff? I could care less since I stopped playing this game 3 weeks after its release and never came back but still.

@tsmech88: They said upfront that the season pass included the first two expansions only.

I'd actually be looking forward to getting back into Destiny if this was included in the season pass, but I can't justify paying $30 for something that doesn't look much different than what we've already seen. The price they are charging for this content is a real turn off.

I can only hope Destiny 2 is a significant improvement over what we've seen thus far because there are definitely elements of Destiny that I really enjoy.

@StHapns247: Yep, enemies are the same again but with some extra flourishes on the original design. I would be willing to bet that the levels are largely the same environments you have played before as well.

Yeah no thanks. Cash grab once again. I fell for that three times already. I'll spend my $30 on a full game instead of rehashed skins.
