Guardians look set to get their second batch of post-launch Destiny content on May 19, as Activision has slated the shooter’s sophomore expansion, House of Wolves to arrive on said date.
News comes by way of Kotaku, who first reported the DLC’s due date, and now the publisher has lifted the curtain on the opening cinematic. Essentially a prologue to the upcoming bout of galactic action, the snippet details the lore underpinning your latest adventure, and it appears as though the Awoken have a score to settle.
According to a series of leaked tidbits from a few months ago, House of Wolves will bring about an array of new content primarily centering around the Awoken clan, jettisoning Guardians off and into the uncharted areas of The Reef.
Alongside this are three all-new multiplayer maps for Destiny’s Crucible, while an exclusive Raid will serve up the most challenging aspect of the DLC if Vault of Glass and Crota’s End are any indication.
- A new Awoken storyline plus an exclusive Raid
- 3 new Crucible maps and a new Fallen Strike
- Hundreds of new weapons, amour and gear
House of Wolves is now due to arrive a little over four months after The Dark Below, the maiden content pack for Bungie’s shared-world shooter. According to the developer, this latest expansion will strive to avoid the pitfalls of The Dark Below, implementing several gameplay fixes and ensuring fans are able to access the fun parts as soon as possible, rather than be subjected to a monotonous grind for levelling.
Those players who own Destiny‘s expansion pass ($35) will be entitled to pick up the add-on day and date, though it’s worth keeping in mind that House of Wolves will be release as a standalone property too, allowing users to pick it up individually for $20.
