I almost forgot that Destiny is still ticking along, but Activision and Bungie have announced that House of Wolves expansion finally has a release date: May 19th.
Considering the core game was in dire need of some meat I admit to being a little optimistic about a new expansion pack giving me reason to venture back into Destiny as some part of me truly wants to love the game. Alas the contents of this expansion pack seem rather meagre: “new story missions, three new competitive multiplayer maps, and a new cooperative strike” stated Bungie. A new Crucible mode will also apparently be available, all for £20. Wait, how much?
A much larger expansion is due out later in the year, but frankly my own opinion is that it will be far too late by then. Bungie and Activision are supposed to have a ten-year plan for Destiny, but it’s struggling to stay relevant even now.
That’s me, though, and there does still seem to be a lot of players logging on for a few hours a week to grind away.
