“Destiny’s” upcoming downloadable content (DLC) expansion pack, “House of Wolves,” will reach Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on May 19, four months after the game’s first expansion, “The Dark Below.” Publisher Activision confirmed the release date in a news release Monday. The company also released a YouTube video that will go live at 1 p.m. EDT.
“Destiny” reached all four consoles Sept. 9 last year. In early February, a “Destiny” fan dug up some alleged details on “House of Wolves.” User megamanexe64 then posted the info on Reddit, which detailed new weapons, gear, a light level cap raise and even a tentative release date that claimed the DLC wouldn’t reach players until May. However, developer Bungie of Bellevue, Washington, warned players that the details weren’t confirmed. But as it turns out, the user was apparently correct about the release date.
Megamanexe64 claimed that he uncovered dozens of pieces of Vanguard and Crucible armor for the Titan, Warlock and Hunger classes. He also said he discovered new guns and rocket launchers. Screen grabs of new features were included. However, Bungie was quick to warn readers against relying too heavily on this information.
"Aside from giving it a name, Bungie has yet to reveal the ‘House of Wolves,’" Bungie community manager David Dague said in the developer’s forums after the info was leaked. "That means that anything you know about it can change. We have a team working on the experience in their own fancy room, and they have some exciting surprises up their sleeves."
“House of Wolves” will cost players $19.99 individually or $34.99 with the Expansion pack, which included the first DLC, “The Dark Below.”
