After being leaked in parts for quite a while, developer Bungie has officially released details about the new expansion, Rise of Iron. They did a massive breakdown on the Bungie website, here are some key excerpts:
The synopsis for Rise of Iron:
“You’re invited to follow in the footsteps of the Iron Lords. Join Lord Saladin on a new campaign to eliminate an ancient threat that destroyed his legendary order of heroes. Embrace new forms of power and reclaim some old favorites…”
On how Rise of Iron will be distributed:
“Destiny: Rise of Iron will be available exclusively on current generation consoles – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. From here on out, we’ll be referring to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 as legacy consoles. If you’re using a legacy console to play Destiny, you’ll need to upgrade your hardware to experience the next adventure.
Our goal is always to bring every player from this awesome community along for the ride as we continue the story of Destiny. At the same time, we will also continue to support players who elect not to upgrade their console hardware. This Fall, you’ll still be able to play Destiny on legacy generation consoles, but that journey will occur on a separate path. Up to this point, player progression between current and legacy consoles in the same family has been shared by each account. This summer, that experience will fork into two parallel experiences that will no longer share progression.”
