Destiny players have conquered every challenge developer Bungie has thrown at them so far, so now it's time for some new ones in the form of Destiny's second expansion, titled House of Wolves.
Activision announced today House of Wolves will be releasing May 19 on all platforms (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3). With it will be a new raid, new strikes and (of course) new gear. Prior to the release of the expansion Destiny will be getting a large patch for the core game that will bring a number of improvements into the fold, such as improved matchmaking, more vault space and protection for your gear.
Thanks to leaks we've already seen a small hint of what House of Wolves will have in store. The Reddit user responsible for many of the leaks, Megamanexe4, also correctly predicted the expansion's release date, so the leaked information seems legitimate.
Players will be journeying once more to the Reef for the raid simply called "The Arena." The Reef may also be the setting for a new social hub where players can gather in between strikes and raids. House of Wolves will supposedly include three new story missions revolving around the Awoken Queen's Fallen warriors. Those Fallen have revolted against the Queen, and it looks like it will be up to Earth's Guardians to bring them to justice across missions taking place on Earth and Venus.
PvP lovers will also be getting plenty of new content to enjoy in the form of new multiplayer maps. And of course there will be plenty of new gear to enjoy, some of which can be seen here. According to leaked information about the expansion, House of Wolves will be raising the "light level" cap for players up to 39, a huge step up from the previous expansion. We'll just have to wait and see if that turns out to be true. In the meantime, be sure to check out the official House of Wolves trailer below.
