Bungie has officially showed off the Destiny Rise of Iron expansion. This expansion will only be on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 so it is next gen fully. Rise of Iron will release on September 20th for $30 in the US, 24.99 pounds in the UK which is a decent price because fans are getting a load of new content. Also we can’t forget that PlayStation will get exclusive content with Destiny: Rise of Iron. The light level will also increase Bungie had confirmed that we will hear more about it this Summer. At the end of the stream they also said more information will be revealed at E3 next week!

We also get a small description of The Plaguelands:
This area near the Cosmodrome has been quarantined for centuries. Now the Devil Splicers have broken through the walls, dug deep into the earth and found technology of almost limitless power. The Splicers are using this forbidden technology – SIVA – to transform the region to fit their twisted desires.
Every Fallen House has Splicers – body hackers and bioengineers, these Splicers meld flesh and machine. The Devil Splicers are loyal to the House of Devils, and they now have the ultimate technology – SIVA. They are using it to transform themselves. Instead of worshiping machine gods, the Devil Splicers will *become* machine gods.
For the first time we see Lord Saladin unmasked but sadly Bungie has confirmed that you won’t be able to form your own wolf pack.
We also got a in-game shot of Felwinter Peak’s Mosoleum which is a new social space.
