A trailer for the new Destiny DLC Rise of Iron leaked out a little early yesterday, and though it was quickly taken down, the official trailer is now up. It also contains something that will twist the knickers of everyone who played the game back in its launch year: The rocket launcher Gjallarhorn is back. It's sporting the same design, only now you can get it in "Iron Black". And while there's a pre-order pitch to get hold of it, hopefully it will be available for everyone else as loot in the game as well.
The fine print for the Gjallarhorn pre-order offer. Maybe everyone else who completes the same quest just gets regular ol' Gjallarhorn?
That's kind of a big deal, because Gjallarhorn was a weapon of choice in the early days of the game, when it was massively overpowered. At Taken King's release last year, though, it didn't get any upgrades, meaning that while it was still technically in the game it was left behind in favour of Year Two gear.
Here's the trailer.
If you missed it yesterday, some details on the DLC spilled out from an Xbox store listing. You can check that out here.
Oh, and if you can't watch the video, here are some gifs showing the new story, new gear and new bad guys:
Oh hello there Captain Badarse
That new black/red armour is magnificent
New raid boss. Nope.
