Destiny: The Taken King Content Detailed, Contains New Raid, Narrative, and More

As a part of Bungie Weekly Update, the developer outlined the content fans can expect from the forthcoming Destiny: The Taken King.

The developer has already stated that it will kick off Destiny’s second year with a major expansion, but now Bungie is dubbing The Taken King as something more than DLC – the developer is referring to it as ‘a game’.

In case you are wondering whether the upcoming expansion or should I call it ‘game’ justifies the $39.99 pricepoint, here is what lies inside the box:

  • New story missions and an array of sidequests that conspire to tell the story of our battle to defend our Solar System against Oryx and his Taken army
  • New narrative driven by cinematic cutscenes starring an engaging cast of characters
  • New Exotic Weapons, Exotic Armor, and Exotic Questlines
  • The Dreadnaught, a full new destination, with unique secrets, rituals, and treasures to uncover
  • A new breed of enemy combatants, The Taken, armed with new abilities and weapons
  • An increased Level Cap, and new ways for your Guardian to grow more powerful
  • The most substantial injection of new, unique, and redesigned weapons, armor, and talents to date
  • New subclasses with all new Supers and abilities
  • New cooperative Strikes with unique and dynamic new Boss battles
  • Redesigned and reimagined Strikes – Dust Palace, Undying Mind, and Cerberus Vae III – are now overrun by the Taken
  • New Crucible multiplayer maps with new Crucible modes, including the previously revealed Rift and Mayhem
  • And, of course, last but not least, our biggest six-player Raid yet

The developer has also asked fans to stay tuned to Bungie Weekly Updates for more information on Destiny: The Taken King.

Destiny: The Taken King is scheduled to arrive on Sept. 15, 2015 across PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS3.
