Destiny - Age of Triumph
Posted in destiny
Destiny 1's final DLC will be called Age of Triumph and concludes the three years since Destiny first launched. As a poignant reminder of the game's beginnings, Age of Triumph will include the original raid "Vault of Glass" brought up to the current light level for one last challenge, along with a collection of fan favourites.
The release date for Age of Triumph is planned for the end of March 2017, most probably Tuesday 28th, with several live streams planned beforehand to show us the new features in action. Created by the Live team, this new DLC isn't an expansion style addition but rather a set of new challenges for existing content and a sprinkle of new ways to enjoy the existing game.
As Bungie put it, Age of Triumph will be "a fun and memorable celebration that will bring the first major chapter of our Destiny adventures to a fitting close". Players can expect some high level challenges on existing content with the hope of earning some new rewards for their existing Destiny 1's character. Expect most of the rewards to be cosmetic in nature, Emblems, Shaders etc.
In the same news post Bungie also delved further into Destiny's sequel, which we know is planned for the end of this year, and what we can expect to be brought forward on our existing characters. I have covered some of this in another post but if you want to read for yourself, check the link below.
See end of post for officially confirmed content.
- All Raids brought up to current light level - kind of like a "greatest hits" collection of content
- Weekly Rituals - weekly challenges for Nightfall, Crucible and possibly Raids
- Classic raid weapons returning - updated versions of Fatebringer, Vision of Confluence etc.
- Sandbox update - modifications to Destiny stats: weapons, armour etc.
