Destiny’s The Taken King Raid Will Launch On September 18th

Word recently broke that Bungie’s new The Taken King expansion would not launch with a raid, which upset many gamers in the fanbase. The good news is that the raid, called King’s Fall, will launch on September 18th, just 3 days after the expansion itself launches on September 15th.

The Court of Oryx public event mode was also discussed, which has a very different approach compared to ones in the game’s past. Players will collect and offer different runes out in the world to the Court, which summons powerful bosses that must be defeated within a time limit. The best part of this is that the player sacrificing the rune will get the best loot, rather than it being completely randomized.

The Taken King expansion will be available to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Destiny: The Taken King Launch Trailer Has Lots Of Shooting And… Led Zeppelin?

Bungie has revealed the launch trailer for Destiny‘s next expansion, The Taken King, which is set to be the biggest expansion that the MMOFPS has received yet. Check it out directly below.

As far as gameplay trailers go, this one is a bit strange. There’s some new clips that show off a bit of the story expansion and a heck of a lot of shooting, which is what you would expect. However, the song that accompanies the gameplay is “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin, which is really weird. Don’t get me wrong, I friggin’ love Led Zeppelin and I’m pretty amazed that they even OK’d the use of the song for the trailer, but the tone of the song and the tone of the game are completely different. “Black Dog” is a really fun and up-beat song and Destiny┬átakes itself very seriously.
