Destiny: Rise of Iron Trailer Shows Off Everything New
Private matches, new maps, a new mode, the next raid, and a lot more shown off in trailer.
Today during a livestream event from Gamescom, Bungie released a new "ViDoc" for Destiny's upcoming Rise of Iron expansion. This video, titled "Forged in Fire," shows off basically everything featured in the update, including new story content, the next raid, additional Crucible maps, and more.
While much of the content in the video was announced previously, this is the best, most in-depth and extensive look at Rise of Iron content that's been released so far. Take a look.
Among the most high-profile new additions to Destiny with Rise of Iron is private match functionality for the Crucible. Players can set up their own matches and are able to customize things like match duration, time of day, and score limit. Players can also enable or disable their Light level for private matches.
Another standout from the trailer is the new raid, Wrath of the Machine, which sees players making their way through claustrophobic confines of The Wall before reaching the open air on top. This raid goes live on September 23, which is three days after the expansion itself arrives. The video also shines a light on the new Strike, The Wretched Eye.
Additionally, Rise of Iron includes the new Supremacy mode for Crucible. As we learned earlier today, this follows the formula of Call of Duty's Kill Confirmed mode. Private matches are coming to all Destiny players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but Supremacy is only available for people who own Rise of Iron.
Rise of Iron launches on September 20 for PS4 and Xbox One. It's Destiny's fourth expansion, following The Dark Below, House of Wolves, and The Taken King. All of those, as well as the base game, were released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but Rise of Iron won't be.
Players who began on last-gen systems but now have a current-gen machine can upgrade to the newly announced Destiny: The Collection for $40, but only for a limited time. The Collection comes with the base game and all Destiny content, including Rise of Iron, as well as a character boost.
