It's been only a short while since Destiny's release, and players have already picked its bones clean of any content. It probably happened a lot quicker than the developers expected, and now they're gearing up to release the game's first expansion, The Dark Below, on December 9th. Bungie has released the first video detailing what will be included.
I'm convinced they're being forced to release content a little quicker than they would like, and as a result, this may be a rushed affair. But retention is the name of the game, and there's currently nothing for players to do. In fact, after there was nothing to do, players figured out how to do more, and now there's really nothing to do.
And it's that hardcore base that Destiny need to hang onto for dear relevance.
With that in mind, the new expansion will feature strikes that tie into the storyline, with three new maps, and a new massive raid battle with a theme of "one-way trip". The developer video below features a lot of fake interviews and "we wanted to give you more", bla bla bla, but does include lots of gameplay footage, so it's definitely worth a watch for fans of Destinanus.
Vault of Glass was the best thing in Destiny, so this is just what the doctor ordered. And, of course, there will be lots of new weapons and gear, and you'll get to watch your virtual numbers go up. Hopefully, Bungie won't have to rush content out too fast in an attempt to retain players for their lofty 10 year goal.
