Bungie has just confirmed today that the latest expansion for the hit game Destiny will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 20th. The download will retail for $29.99, and pre-ordering the expansion will net you the silver & black Iron Gjallarhorn rocket launcher weapon. Check out the press release below:
Destiny: Rise of Iron is the next highly anticipated expansion to the Destiny universe. It features an all new cinematic story campaign set within The Plaguelands, a brand new location on Earth. Under the command of Lord Saladin you will face a new faction of Fallen Devils, the Splicers, while unravelling the mystery of the Iron Lords. Rise of Iron features new weapons, armor, and gear, as well as a new cooperative three-player Strike, a new mode and maps for the Crucible competitive multiplayer, and an all new six-player cooperative Raid.
- New Story Campaign & Quests
- New Armor and Gear
- New Weapons
- New Raid
- Maximum Light Increase
- New Strike
- New Plaguelands Zone & Social Space
- New Crucible Mode & Maps

The expansion will not be available for the older Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 systems, which signifies the end of support for Destiny on those platforms. The trailer below looks amazing, I cannot wait to scale some snow covered mountains, learn some new abilities, and fight some new bad guys. Hopefully there will be more game play videos and information released at E3 next week. Is it September 20th yet?
