It's the news Destiny players have been waiting for: Full details for The Dark Below, Destiny 's first DLC pack.
Set to release on December 9 across all platforms, this hefty expansion features new equipment along with a fresh story and multiplayer events. It's going to give you a lot more to do, and gives you a glimpse of the game's future expansion potential.
Said Bungie president Harold Ryan:
"Destiny was created as a living universe, which has allowed us to improve the experience post launch in real-time. It also gives us insight into the things players are looking for in new content. We've seen from feedback that people want new activities, gear and weapons, and of course the immensely popular Raid. The community helps shape our development decisions and that’s really important to us."
The Dark Below is the first of two DLC packs that will be part of the $35 Season Pass. If you're not a Pass holder, you'll have to fork over $20 for each expansion. Here's the complete list for The Dark Below, as revealed by publisher Activision:
