Destiny House of Wolves expansion won’t include new Raid

UPDATE: The Destiny House of Wolves expansion won’t include a brand new raid, but instead offer a three-player co-operative multiplayer mode.

Instead of introducing a brand new Raid, gamers may be disappointed to hear that the second Destiny expansion pack will focus on a new three-player cooperative multiplayer arena mode.

“House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn’t make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year,” explained the latest Bungie blog post.

“House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders.”

That means the biggest content release for Destiny is coming after House of Wolves at an unknown date later this year.

You’ll be able to see the first live gameplay of Prison of Elders on Wednesday, May 6.

Activision has announced the Destiny House of Wolves expansion will arrive on May 19.

House of Wolves, the second expansion for Bungie’s Destiny, will be released in just over a month.
That’s straight from Activision too, not some rumour mill, so we know that we’ll be back on the Destiny grind from May 19.
House of Wolves arrives around four and a half months after the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below, which was released on December 9.
It’s interesting that Activision has confirmed the House of Wolves release date is exactly the same as that outlined by the February leak.
House of Wolves is the second and final expansion for Destiny and can be purchased as part of the Destiny Expansion Pass – £34.99. Or you can purchase the two expansions separately for £19.99 a piece.
Although neither Activision nor Bungie have outlined what exactly the House of Wolves expansion will offer, Bungie said earlier this year it will fix some of the mistakes found in The Dark Below.
