Earlier today, users of the Destiny sub-reddit were treated to some brand new DLC info thanks to a set of leaks originating from a Japanese user known as “megamanexe4”.
The details and images posted suggest that Destiny’s second DLC, officially titled The House of Wolves, will launch on May 19. The images also offer a look at the expansion’s content, including armor and weapons. Additionally, the post suggest the new DLC will launch with a new storyline, one new Raid, one new Strike, and three new Crucible maps. You can have a look at the post, with an explanation in broken English, right here with more weapon images here.
Having taken note of the leak, Community Manager “DeeJ” weighed in, making mention of a a few points Destiny fans should keep in mind.
- “Aside from giving it a name, Bungie has yet to reveal the House of Wolves. That means that anything you know about it can change. We have a team working on the experience in their own fancy room, and they have some exciting surprises up their sleeves.”
- “We reserve the right to overwrite anything you’re looking at right now. These placeholder items enable us to save room on your drive for actual future updates. You’ll all download them before it’s time to play.”
- “Any stats or assumptions about power or impact or handsomeness are months old, and do not reflect the things that we’re doing to adapt to what you’ve taught us about Destiny. There is a process here, and you’re a part of it.”
“Leaks are fun. I totally get it. Please discuss to your heart’s content,” he added. “All we ask is that you leave your mind open to the evolutions that are inevitable. What you see here are very old ghosts from our pre-launch database. These are not the necessarily wolves you’re looking for.”
Older leaks from last month put The House of Wolves at a March 10 launch and suggested that it will include four Crucible maps instead of three.
As usual, take these new details with a grain of salt, but feel free to speculate in the comments below. We’ll keep you updated with any Destiny DLC news we catch.
In the near future, fans can look forward to a new game update later this month that aims to squash the ‘heavy ammo bug’, among other things.
