Bungie's space shooter Destiny is getting a new expansion, and according to a leak online it will be called Rise of Iron.

The Rise of Iron expansion will reportedly feature a new raid, and "will be larger than both year-one DLC packs." The character featured in the image is wielding a hammer, which would suggest a new type of weapon will be introduced as part of the expansion. GameSpot has reached out to Activision for comment, and will update when more information emerges.

In February Activision announced a "large" new expansion scheduled to release for Destiny this year. The news was revealed alongside the announcement of a Destiny sequel, which will be launching in 2017.

Destiny has three expansions thus far; The Dark Below, House of Wolves, and The Taken King. More recently, the game celebrated hitting 30 million registered players.
