Report: Destiny's The Taken King introduces subclasses and new raid on Sept. 15

According to a new report, we can expect to play the next piece of DLC for Destiny this September.


Destiny’s next piece of downloadable content is expected to be called The Taken King, will feature a new subclass for each Guardian class, and a new raid, according to a new report.

The report sources marketing materials that outline The Taken King’s price and contents. The $40 expansion will include a new raid that has Guardians fighting against Oryx, father of Crota, who we’ve tangoed with in the past in Crota’s End.

The new subclasses have also been reportedly detailed, although the information is superficial as all we know are the elemental super abilities for each Guardian class. Warlocks will have an arc super attack, a void elemental attack for Hunters, and a solar attack for Titans.

Activision’s CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed Destiny would be receiving a “major content release” later this year. At the time, he said the publisher would announce the major content release for the fall. Considering this report claims The Taken King will be out on September 15, this leads us to believe this is probably the piece of content Hirshberg was eluding to.

        The game has gotten great support/updates. They've earned my money

          Hmm nope. The core gameplay is very solid, but I think the overall value for the money spent is incredible low. If say Blizzard followed the same route with Diablo 3 they would have released with only the first half of act 1 with each additional half-act around $20 or more.

      That is one year after release - will the timed exclusive PS4 content also be coming to Xbox?

      Lolno. How about you fix the garbage loot systems, matchmaking, ammo bugs, and give us new places to explore?

        They fixed the ammo bugs several patches ago and they've made big improvements to the loot. Matchmaking seems like a lost cause unfortunately.

        This is also going to be a full expansion, not like the current dlcs . New planets, strikes, and story missions comparable to the base game.

          The purple ammo bug is still there. Happens to me every time I play.

            Must be your imagination or you haven't played in a couple months. The heavy ammo bug is 100% fixed.
