Another week, another Destiny update courtesy of Bungie. As with previous installments, the studio has outlined a series of bug fixes making their way into the shared-world shooter, but this week’s blog is headlined by the game’s sophomore expansion, House of Wolves.
In fact, it’s been revealed that Bungie is gearing up to announce the add-on’s anticipated release date, which has previously been tethered with a vague spring 2015 window. Here’s what the company had to say on the matter.
“This week at Bungie, we’re dancing ever closer to the House of Wolves. The next expansion for Destiny is something we’re really looking forward to talking about. This month, there will come a day when we’ll reveal a release date for the trials that await you, with a whole reef of details soon to follow–but it is not this day.”
Much like The Dark Below before it, House of Wolves is poised to introduce an array of new content for Guardians to plough through. Perhaps the most exciting addition of them all, though, is the exclusive new Raid mission, which is said to center around the Awoken race.
Circling back to those aforementioned fixes, and Bungie touched upon some of the incremental changes headed to Destiny. One of which is designed to rectify an issue with players doing damage to the Minotaurs, which proved to be a tricky butterfly to pin.
“We had a bug where players weren’t doing damage to Minotaurs with the Relic shield. Turns out that the complicated hit test we use to detect a melee hit just missed the combatant because of the long-legged shape of its body. Some of these bugs were truly baffling, but we dug deep and went to great lengths to improve things.”
According to an untimely Destiny leak last month, House of Wolves is due to hit the market on May 18. Nevertheless, this remains unconfirmed at the time of writing, but judging by Bungie’s latest post, it won’t be long before Guardians will be dusting off their plasma rifles in preparation for an all-new Raid.
