"It can change," Bungie responds.

A host of details for Destiny's upcoming House of Wolves expansion have appeared online, including a possible release date.

Reddit user megamanexe4 gained access to the currently-hidden content via methods unknown, but claims that it is all due to unlock on 19th May.

That date is a Tuesday, which would fit with both the game's weekly reset and the release of previous expansion The Dark Below.

"The Queen's Fallen have purchased their freedom with Awoken blood," the expansion's description reads. "Hunt down the traitors and your debt to the Queen will be paid."


A new set of story missions and fresh raid will be included, along with three new multiplayer maps and a new strike.

As previously rumoured, the raid will be set in the currently-unexplorable Reef area.

"Hundreds" of new weapons, armour and gear will also be included - many of which are already pictured in the Reddit post above.

There's also a new, higher level strike playlist (level 28 Vanguard Dragon) and a new level cap for the Weekly Nightfall activity - level 32.

The find backs up an earlier report on Destiny's upcoming expansion schedule.


A smattering of House of Wolves' story content is apparently still set to unlock in March, which was at one point pegged as House of Wolves' release date.

"The majority of the data has already been set to May, but some things like the Daily Heroic have remained set to March," megamanexe4 wrote. "I believe a patch will be released sometime in early March to correct this."

Additionally, weekly activities have been set up until the end of August - which tallies with word of the huge Comet: Plague of Darkness update expected in September.

"September and beyond resulted in errors," he continued. "If there is to be a major update as has been suggested, it will likely come in September."

Bungie community manager DeeJ was quick to respond to the leak via the game's official forum.

"What could it all mean?" he teased. "I know that rampant speculation will burn for a while on this topic. As you enjoy a conversation about the pearls of information that can be lifted from this, please bear a few things in mind...

"1. 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.

"2. 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.

"3. 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. 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 necessarily the wolves you're looking for."

Is the last expansion pack do you think? I'm bored of this game now and am unlikely to buy further expansions unless they provide more of a cohesive story and not the disappointing shite they usually come up with.

Destiny will gain a new social area in its upcoming House of Wolves expansion, according to a fresh set of leaked screenshots.

The new hub will be set within the mysterious Reef location and will presumably act as another space for players to gather, in addition to the game's main Tower.

A map setting for the location can be seen in screenshots posted to Reddit by megamanexe4, the same user who previously spilled details of House of Wolves' missions and guns.


The Reddit user was able to select the location from Destiny's launcher.

But it's not the first time we've spotted mention of a non-combat area set in the Reef. Bungie showed a brief second of footage from the area during a developer diary released back in February in 2013. But the studio has since remained silent on the content, and it failed to appear in the final game.


The area as it looked in February 2013.

House of Wolves, Destiny's second expansion, is due to focus on the Reef and its ruler, The Queen. A new raid is also expected to be set in the remote location. It will be player's first proper visit to the region, outside of cut-scenes.

Other new screenshots show off new Inferno playlists for Destiny's multiplayer mode, which disable level advantages.

Two new single-player missions have also been spotted: a level 30 quest entitled Nightcrawler, and a new level 28 strike named Belly of the Beast. Both are set on the Moon.

"A Fallen Wolfship holding an infamous Walker has touched down in the Ocean of Storms," the new strike's description reads. "Breach the Ketch and see to this Walker's end."

Rewards include an unknown "armour upgrade" as well as XP.

Bungie has yet to set a release date for House of Wolves, but the previous leak pointed to the expansion's content unlocking on 19th May - two months later than Bungie originally planned.

So essentially, £20 for a raid and a strike.

Assuming of course we'll get a new raid.


And yes I know there'll be missions, but we don't replay those outside of daily missions unless they're particularly good for farming something.

Yeah, it will most likely follow the previous DLC. It will cost £20, and will have a new raid, at least one new strike (possibly a PS exclusive, although I'm not sure on that) and new story missions.

Decided against the DLC when the first one was released. Still doesn't seem worth it.
