What’s in Destiny’s The Taken King

destiny the taken kingBungie have detailed in their latest weekly blog post just what you get for your money in The Taken King, the expansion coming to Destiny in September.

Since the announcement of The Taken King expansion, fans have been divided over the price of the add-on, feeling that what was already announced to be part of the content, was too little for the asking price. The content will cost fans £40/$40/€40, and that in itself annoys fans. Bungie wanted fans to know exactly what they’re getting for their money, and below, you can see the list.

Destiny: The Taken King introduces the following to Destiny on every platform:
  • New story missions and an array of sidequests that conspire to tell the story of our battle to defend our Solar System against Oryx and his Taken army
  • New narrative driven by cinematic cutscenes starring an engaging cast of characters
  • New Exotic Weapons, Exotic Armor, and Exotic Questlines
  • The Dreadnaught, a full new destination, with unique secrets, rituals, and treasures to uncover
  • A new breed of enemy combatants, The Taken, armed with new abilities and weapons
  • An increased Level Cap, and new ways for your Guardian to grow more powerful
  • The most substantial injection of new, unique, and redesigned weapons, armor, and talents to date
  • New subclasses with all new Supers and abilities
  • New cooperative Strikes with unique and dynamic new Boss battles
  • Redesigned and reimagined Strikes – Dust Palace, Undying Mind, and Cerberus Vae III – are now overrun by the Taken
  • New Crucible multiplayer maps with new Crucible modes, including the previously revealed Rift and Mayhem
  • And, of course, last but not least, our biggest six-player Raid yet

The Taken King will release on all platforms on September 15th, and you can also buy the complete version of the game for £55 which includes all previously released DLC and The Taken King, on top of the base game.
