Destiny: Rise of Iron Released #DestinyRiseofIron


Activision and Bungie have announced the release of the Destiny: Rise of Iron expansion, and Destiny – The Collection for players that are new to the game. Also, Bungie has stated "We are actively investigating issues preventing players from connecting to Destiny on all platforms."

Quote:
Bungie and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), deliver the next highly-anticipated storyline to the action shooter Destiny with their large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron. Before there were Guardians protecting humanity, there were Iron Lords. The new, cinematic-filled adventure sets players on a heroic journey where they will join forces with one of Destiny’s greatest heroes, Lord Saladin, to battle an ancient, vicious enemy from the past and ultimately earn their place in history as Iron Lords themselves.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – September 20, 2016 – Bungie and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), deliver the next highly-anticipated storyline to the action shooter Destiny with their large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron. Before there were Guardians protecting humanity, there were Iron Lords. The new, cinematic-filled adventure sets players on a heroic journey where they will join forces with one of Destiny’s greatest heroes, Lord Saladin, to battle an ancient, vicious enemy from the past and ultimately earn their place in history as Iron Lords themselves.

Available today alongside Rise of Iron is Destiny – The Collection, an all-in-one experience containing every release from the award-winning action shooter franchise to date. Destiny: Rise of Iron and Destiny – The Collection can be purchased today, worldwide, in each territory where available at global retailers, and through console digital stores for the PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One (PlayStation®Plus, Xbox Live Gold, required for some features). Destiny: Rise of Iron requires Destiny game and The Taken King (includes Expansions I & II), sold separately.

“Rise of Iron's record shattering pre-orders* make it by far our most anticipated expansion for Destiny ever--and for good reason. It's packed with incredible new adventures that Destiny players are going to love,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. "Along with our partners at Bungie, we can't wait for our fans to explore 'The Plaguelands,' conquer an entirely new Raid, 'Wrath of the Machine,' and tackle all new modes, a new Strike, quests, weapons, and gear. I, for one, can't stop playing. And you won't be able to either."

“The team was excited to expand upon the heroic tale from one of Destiny’s most renowned characters in Destiny: Rise of Iron,” said Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie. “We can’t wait to see the memories and stories that will unfold as the community discovers what it means to become an Iron Lord.”

In Destiny: Rise of Iron, players will explore the noble backstory behind one of Destiny’s most beloved events, “The Iron Banner,” and fight alongside its herald, Lord Saladin. Mysteries and challenges await in Rise of Iron including: an all-new setting on Earth called “The Plaguelands,” a twisted, dangerous, and action-packed area that has been quarantined for centuries; a brand-new six-player Raid; Felwinter Peak, a new social space where players must ascend a snowy, mountain top to reclaim a Guardian stronghold from the enemy; cooperative three-player Strikes; more quests, weapons, gear; a new competitive multiplayer mode called Supremacy and four new PvP maps; a Light level increase to 385; a new mutated enemy faction of the Fallen, and more. The “Wrath of the Machine” Raid will go live at 10 o’clock a.m. PDT on Friday, Sept. 23rd.

Destiny – The Collection is one of the largest content offerings in gaming this year, comprising all the magic of Destiny since its beginning in 2014. It is the perfect opportunity for new and returning Guardians to join the fight for humanity’s survival and includes a character boost allowing players to instantly level up and join their friends. Additionally, legacy-gen console players can utilize the Destiny – The Collection upgrade program to transition to current-gen until January 31, 2017.

Destiny: Rise of Iron and Destiny – The Collection are rated T for Teen by the ESRB. The expansion will be available at a suggested retail price of $29.99. Destiny – The Collection will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99. At launch, PlayStation® gamers will also receive access to additional content for Rise of Iron, including a Crucible map, a ship, and a quest. Timed exclusive until at least Fall 2017.

I went through the single player campaign last night. It’s pretty much like what most of the articles are saying… short but fun. The last mission in particular was a good one.

Now I’ll be off playing Archon's Forge & grinding missions in the Plaguelands for the rest of the week. Building up my light level while chasing legendaries & exotics. I hope to hear some good reviews about the new raid over the weekend.
