It’s been one of the most requested features among the Destiny community ever since the second Destiny Raid, Crota’s End, went live in-game some years ago. Now, finally, former Halo developer Bungie have acknowledged what their fans want, and have hinted that there’s a good chance they’ll be bringing older Raids such as the Vault of Glass or the previously mentioned Crota’s End back with the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion.
However, it’s worth noting that the idea isn’t going to be part of the core content coming with the expansion. That said, there’s still going to be plenty of content for Destiny fans to enjoy including an all new Raid named Wrath of the Machine. Here’s a glimpse of what’s coming in the new Destiny: Rise of Iron trailer.
Looking to the future Bungie have already promised more live events to come later in the year and while they may have addressed the idea of older Raids to once again become relevant, there are still a lot of unanswered questions circulating around the community and while it’s likely Bungie have their own ideas about where they want to take Destiny, it does at least present the developer with plenty of opportunities to keep their fan-base happy.
Destiny: Rise of Iron’s game director Christopher Barrett had the following to say in regards to the prospect:
“It’s always consistently been in the top 10 list. Since the second raid came out: ‘Hey, we want to go back and play older raids.’ The simple answer is it’s a matter of priority. If we spend time bringing that stuff, that means less new stuff we can build. For this fall, in Rise of Iron, we wanted new stuff. New new new. Let’s give new places to go, new raid, stuff like that. But we certainly hear that fans would love to have a reason to go back to some of the old raids. So we’re absolutely considering it.”
Having played some of Destiny’s previous content extensively, I have to admit I’m somewhat tempted to once again return to the game I once loved. The only thing putting me off however, is the prospect of spending yet more money on Destiny’s famously repetitive content, or rather the lack of it. I’ve already plowed close to £120 of my hard-earned money into Destiny and haven’t really had my share of unique experiences to justify it. I can only hope that this time, they’re offering more for the money.
