A new Reddit post appeared today with a leaked image that appears to reveal the title of the upcoming Destiny expansion, Rise of Iron. Originally the information was treated with an understandable level of skepticism but sources close to Bungie reached out to Kotaku to provide additional information, confirming the legitimacy of the information and informing players that they can expect a full reveal at this years E3.
[quote cite=”Kotaku”]Two sources familiar with Bungie confirmed the authenticity of this poster to Kotaku last night. The Rise of Iron expansion will feature a new raid and will be larger than the two year-one DLC packs, according to a source. (Of course, as The Taken King showed us, the amount and scale of content in a Destiny expansion can vary wildly and it may not be fair to compare this to previous DLC.) It’s not clear how this expansion is related to Destiny’s regular Iron Banner PVP event, but that appears to be Iron Banner maestro Lord Saladin brandishing a hammer (or axe) in the poster.[/quote]
Following the posting of the information another source reached out to confirm that the new raid will feature entirely new gameplay:
[quote cite=”Kotaku”]I originally reported that the new raid is based on the one that was cut from House of Wolves, but this morning a source reached out to say that was incorrect, and that development on the new raid had actually started from scratch last summer. I apologize for the error. [/quote]
