No Raid For Destiny’s Taken King Expansion At Launch

Destiny‘s big new expansion called The Taken King is set to be released next month, though it looks like it will be lacking something big at launch. Bungie has just confirmed that the $40 expansion will not be launching with a raid, which is part of any expansion’s most anticipated aspect.

This news comes just two weeks before the launch of this expansion, with no expected release date for when the raid might launch. Basically, they just want your money now and they’ll release that raid whenever they feel like it.

The Taken King will launch on September 15th, 2015, which marks the end of “year one” for Destiny.

Hear A Clip Of Nolan North As The Ghost In Destiny

It was recently revealed that Nolan North would be replacing Peter Dinklage as the ghost from Destiny in not only the upcoming Taken King expansion, but also re-recording everything Dinklage already did. Bungie claims this is due to future scheduling conflicts with Dinklage and their desire to have consistency in the game.

Well, thanks to the above teaser for the Taken King we now have our first brief clip of what Nolan North sounds like as the Ghost. As far as I can judge from this clip it isn’t all *that* different, but definitely less monotone. Then again, this is coming from a guy who had no problem whatsoever with Dinklebot and didn’t understand the huge backlash he was getting at the time.

The Taken King is set to be released next month on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
