Destiny has had an extremely long lifespan since it launched during the fall of last year, and that isn’t about to stop with its next expansion pack getting ready for launch. Bungie and Activision are preparing to unleash the newest piece of Destiny DLC this coming May 19.
In a post on the PS Blog yesterday, Sony Senior Social Media Manager Sid Shuman revealed a slew of new details regarding the upcoming Destiny DLC, House of Wolves. For players who own a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3, House of Wolves will be bringing a new multiplayer map specifically for PlayStation gamers.
“PS4 and PS3 owners will get Timekeeper, a close-quarters battleground set inside a mysterious Vex device amidst the arid dunes of Mars. Black Shield is a medium-sized map set on Phobos. Thieves’ Den is an intimate arena set in the tunnels under Venus. Widow’s Court takes the fight to Earth’s European Dead Zone, a striking thematic departure for Destiny — expect crumbling gothic spires, stained glass, and overgrown plant life,” Shuman wrote.
The exclusive fourth PlayStation map, Timekeeper, will deliver a new experience and help flesh out the currently robust multiplayer experience. Bungie is looking to reward players who participate in Crucible matches by dishing out two times the engrams and marks, in addition to rewards for people who jump into the “daily featured game.”
Trials of Osiris has been a major point of emphasis from Bungie since they began talking about the House of Wolves DLC. Shuman went on to speak further about Trials of Osiris, the weekly event created for the purpose of engaging the most skilled Crucible gamers through new objectives and rewards.
“The pitch: you gather your best gear and two friends to take on a punishing 3v3 Elimination challenge. The Trials of Osiris challenge opens up each Friday and closes each Sunday. These Elimination matches are tight, intense affairs where every kill counts. Fall, and you’ll need to be revived by a teammate (unless you’re a Warlock sporting that uber-handy Fireborn self-revive ability). The first team to win five rounds claims victory, though you’re free to keep competing again and again all weekend long,” Shuman said.
If you want to jump into the Trials of Osiris, you will have to visit Brother Vance, who can be found in the new social hub The Reef. Players can pick up a Trials Passage from Vance, and when they are finished, they can revisit Vance, handover the Passage and see if they’ve received any rewards.
Players who are looking for the “best” gear in the game, should look at the “the Osiris-themed gear.” Destiny: House of Wolves is slated to launch on May 19 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
