Bungie’s House of Wolves livestream happened earlier today and I missed it! Bungie did however say they were going to release a copy of the livestream sometime in the near future, so I’ll post it here at Dude Gamer as soon as it comes out. In the meantime, enjoy the teaser trailer they had just released that gives you an enticing look at the new expansion.
Here are some new feature coming with new expansion, House of Wolves:
- New “Ascend” upgrade path for legendary or exotic weapons and armor.
- Re-roll the randomized perks for any new weapon acquired with “Reforge”.
- New social space to battle in called “The Reef”. This new battle space will work like the Tower in some respects, (Vault Access, Bounty Tracker Robot, New Queens Wrath Vendors, House of Judgement Gear).
- In the Tower, the Speaker will act as a trader for old materials. Exchange materials for Mote of Light, etc.
- New activities called “Trails of Osiris”, and “Prison of Elders”.
- Release date is May 19.
- New Bungie livestreams planned up until the release date.
Bungie released a new Destiny patch today with several big fixes and improvements. Most notably in this patch are increased vault size as well as several Strike and Raid fixes which have been frustrating players.
Player vaults have increased in size from 20 items in each group to 24 pieces of armor, 36 weapons, and 24 general items. I know I’ve been running out of space on a regular basis. This improvement applies to all console users, but unfortunately due to memory problems all Xbox 360 and PS3 players will no longer be able to compare items in the vault to what is located in their inventories. This is due to lacking memory of past consoles and Bungie was forced to make concessions in one area or another to allow the vault change to go into effect on early hardware.
New audio and visual improvements are also present that allow users to mute the Destiny musical score as well as improvement for color blind players. One very welcome improvement for me is the item lock feature which prevents the player from accidentally dismantling items. I’ve cursed myself for this in the past, but no more!
