Thanks to Game Informer’s huge story on Destiny: Rise of Iron, there are a ton of different details available for fans to sift through. While talking about what’s new in the expansion, game director Christopher Barrett and executive producer Scott Taylor talk about some new features and missions that players can expect.
For instance, one mission sees players on a gondola ride fighting Fallen. They also noted that Sepiks Prime is even better in his return and the mission to reclaim Felwinter Peak, the new social space, is fairly cool. As for the new Artifacts, they can be used to light braziers beneath a statue of an Iron Lord, thus offering a way to visually track your progress.
Planet Destiny further revealed that there will be a new item for Nightfalls and Strike Playlists with Skeleton Keys. They can be used at the end of Strikes to acquire Strike-exclusive loot through a “Strike Hoard” chest. These chests will appear at the end of Strikes and will also be available outside of the playlists.
Destiny: Rise of Iron is out on September 20th for Xbox One and PS4.
