Bungie reveals new details for the central location of its upcoming DLC.
Bungie has revealed a bit more information about its upcoming The Taken King DLC for Destiny. On the Bungie Weekly Update, the developer finally shined focus on the central location of the expansion’s story, namely Oryx’s Dreadnaught.
Designer Ben Wommack revealed that for the Dreadnaught, the team “created a suite of new mechanics and woven them into the Patrol mode. Every week, every day even, it will draw you back to fight through to its depths for loot and glory.
“Expect to find new Bounties, Patrol Missions, and Public Events both large and small – some of which you can even instigate yourself, if you can discover how.”
These new features address the demand by some fans for a higher level version of Patrol. And with the difficulty, the rewards will scale up as well. Within Oryx’s behemoth ship, you’ll likely find more challenging Public Events than anything else you’ve attempted before on Patrol. How to succeed won’t be obvious at first, but the rewards will be worth your effort.
“Get ready to fight bosses and encounters in surprising combinations of circumstances, and look to your fellow Guardians for help. Patrol is no longer easy mode.”
That’s not all the Dreadnaught has to offer though. Wommack promises that there’s even more to discover for enterprising players. “The Dreadnaught has its secrets – you’ll need to return again and again to solve them all and acquire the rewards we created for doing so.
“There are hidden treasures and bosses waiting to be found, and it won’t be apparent how to access them the first time you go exploring. We’ve laid out a lot of breadcrumb trails though, as you fight your way through the ship. So follow the clues you’re given, face the challenges you can find, and earn that sweet loot.”
Destiny’s The Taken King DLC is out on September 15th for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3. Look out for it at Gamescom where more details are promised to be revealed.
