For those who have tired themselves out on Destiny’s limited pool of content, you might be glad to know that its first major expansion, The Dark Below, has been given a release date of December 9th.

For the price of £19.99 as a separate add-on, or included in the £34.99 season pass, players will get given the following;

  • New weapons, armour and gear to earn, including Legendary and Exotic items


  • Light Level cap raised to 32 and five additional Bounty slots added


  • New story quests and missions – after years hiding amongst the Hive shadows, a new character, Eris, has come forth bearing an ominous warning: The Hive seek to summon a god, Crota, to destroy the Earth. Find Eris in the Tower to take on special quests that include three new missions where you will increase your Light and earn new rewards


  • New co-operative Strike, The Will of Crota, pits you and your Fireteam against Omnigul as she works to expand the Hive army at the command of her master, Crota 


  • Three new competitive multiplayer arenas;

Pantheon – set deep within the Black Garden in an ancient Vex temple that features Vex-designed landscapes and tight corridors

Skyshock – an old interplanetary defence array that offers both vehicle and infantry engagements

The Cauldron – an abandoned Hive ritual site that offers close-quarter combat


  • New six-player Raid, Crota’s End, set deep within the depths of the Hellmouth


  • PlayStation platforms will also get access to an exclusive co-operative Strike, The Undying Mind and an exotic weapon, and more (timed exclusive until at least Autumn 2015)
