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:

— New weapons, armor, and gear to earn, including Legendary and Exotic items

— Light Level cap raised to 32 and five additional Bounty slots added

— New story quests and missions–after years hiding amongst the Hive shadows, a new character, Eris, has come forth bearing an ominous warning: The Hive seek to summon a god, Crota, to destroy the Earth. Find Eris in the Tower to take on special quests that include three new missions where you will increase your Light and earn new rewards

— New cooperative Strike, The Will of Crota, pits you and your Fireteam against Omnigul as she works to expand the Hive army at the command of her master, Crota

— Three new competitive multiplayer arenas

— New six-player Raid, Crota’s End, set deep within the depths of the Hellmouth

— PlayStation platforms will also get access to an exclusive cooperative Strike, The Undying Mind, and more (timed exclusive until at least Fall 2015)

Somewhat torn with this. I've always given the developer the benefit of the doubt with DLC and how it is left out on purpose. But destiny is the first game that truly feels like it was cut into pieces and sold to consumers incomplete. I've plyed the s*** out of this game and am itching for more content, but I don't like the severe lack of content the game initially shipped with. A "10 year game" translates to ~$80 a year? Hard pill to swallow.

Shards, Energy, and Strange Coins.
Got at least one Exotic for your armor and one for your weapons?

If you aren't level 30 should definitely work on getting that. Also 2 exotic weapons aren't very much I have about 8 if you don't have them you should definitely try to get Icebreaker, Pocket Infinity, and the Gjallarhorn.

Awesome. It shall be mine. MINE!

It'll be nice coming back to Destiny after being gone for so long (a few days) while being tied up with Drive Club.

Biggest tip join a clan.

The one I am a part of which is also the largest Warframe clan can still fit about 50 people before we hit the cap. We are heavily focused on Raiding and not so much towards the PVP aspect, though I am always down for some. Or if not mine any decent sized active clan is a good bet, advice try to get one with people from many different timezones that way someone is always on.

Sweet more exclusive content! Exclusive content is never a good thing as a whole but nice to know I am getting even more for my money! = )
