Today has been one that is anything, but short on anticipation. As of today, Bungie has announced that House of Wolves (the second DLC for Destiny), will be launching on May 19th, and has also released an accompanying opening cinematic where the Awoken Queen has been betrayed by the Fallen she once helped protect. With their betrayal the queen has become dead set on making them pay and will be opening “The Reef” to Guardians as they will explore through the depths of the home of the Awoken in order to bring down the Queens wrath upon them for their betrayal.
With the news, Bungie has also outlined a few things that are coming out with this DLC. For those looking to raid? Don’t hold your breath, one will not be releasing with House of Wolves. Instead, players will need to prepare for a new cooperative end-game focused activity that will focus on skill, variety, replayability, and even a focus on teamwork. This content? A battle arena called “The Prison of Elders” (ring a bell?). So what exactly is it? Your guess is good as ours at this moment, but you can wait and find out later this month with the dates listed below from the official Bungie.net news source!
With this announcement, they’ve also announced that will be discussing gear upgrades for current Exotic and Legendary gear, but also their upcoming activities called Trials of Osiris and Prison of Elders.
