Destiny's next expansion, House of Wolves, won't include a new raid
Destiny's second expansion, House of Wolves, will not bring a third raid to the game, developer Bungie announced a few days ago.
"We didn't make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year," said Bungie. Destiny publisher Activision revealed during an earnings call in February that Bungie is working on a "major content release" for Destiny that will be available later in 2015. Destiny launched with one raid, the Vault of Glass, and the first expansion, The Dark Below, added a second raid called Crota's End in December.
Instead of a new raid, House of Wolves will introduce a different type of endgame content with a new cooperative battle arena, the Prison of Elders. It will be "focused on variety, replayability, and skill," according to Bungie. The description suggests that the Prison of Elders could resemble a wave-based "horde" mode.
House of Wolves will be released May 19 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
