Hidden House of Wolves Content

Published on: Apr 14, 2015 @ 13:39

Some of this information via Reddit user ShdwFlm, we’ve now got updated HoW content from the game’s database. Spoiler alert!

This content will be available once the House of Wolves is released.

Updated HoW Venus Location

Thanks to Reddit user Dasgoof12, he snapped some images of what appears to be the Vex Citadel.

We captured footage of it many months ago as you can see in this video, and it looks very different now. I’m sure visual improvements and changes like this were a primary cause of the patch being so large.

“Social” Space

  • Halls of Amentet (Mercury) – Only true champions, tested in the Trials of Osiris, dare set foot in these fabled halls.
  • Queen’s Bay (Reef) – Gateway to the Reef, home of the Queen and her Awoken. Entry point for Guardians looking to collect Reef bounties, forge new allegiances and test themselves in the Prison of Elders and Trials of Osiris.

  • Michael Acuna

    Arena sounds like a hoard/firefight mode my response. https://youtu.be/9_th4LsV9kE

  • HenryDF

    It’s a shame there isn’t a Raid, but the Prison of Elders sounds like at lot of fun.

    I’m guessing some kind of progression through an arena fighting boss after boss. Doesn’t exactly fight the typical “All you do in Destiny is shoot at bigger versions of enemies” comment, but it’s got potential to be fun.

    Plus it sounds like a more straightforward way to earn gear.

  • Gamu

    For the looks of it the are very very few missions, that is sad but hopefully

    they are worth while.

    • Zach

      Don’t know about you, but I play destiny for endgame content. Story missions are nice but is not the reason I’m getting this dlc

      • cool_herc

        Agreed. Anyone playing this game primarily for story content is going to get burnt out fairly quickly for lack of there not being much to do. End game content is where it’s at for most of us.

      • DiamondDNice

        yeah i could care less about story missions. Hell if they made crucible not suck i’d be happy.

        For me it’s like being mad the story in COD games sucks. It’s not really what i bought it for. I bought it for multiplayer. And contrary to many i actually only got this game for multiplayer. Sadly it hasn’t been good in my opinion.

  • BenqEnobe

    Any indication that Fate of All Fools exotic bounty is going to start dropping now the trials is actually a thing?

    • Mauritsfb

      It’ll probably start to drop asap the HOW is here 🙂

    • DiamondDNice

      i think that’s an exotic bounty and I thought no gun from exotic bounties drops or am i wrong?

      • BenqEnobe

        The gun will never drop directly no, just the bounty might start to drop once HoW is released (I hope!). Was wondering if anything had changed in the database to indicate that the bounty was going to be added to the exotic bounty drop table?

  • True Radiant Free

    2 strikes and a Mercury social space!?!?!?

    • True Radiant Free

      Actually it’s looking like only 1 strike according to ShdwFlm’s reddit post? Can someone clarify?

      • Mauritsfb

        1 strike if you play one XBOX 1 / XBOX 360, 2 for PS4/PS3. If you are playing on XBOX you’ll get the strike together with the Undying Mind and The Psion Flayers later

        • True Radiant Free

          I’m on PS4, but I think its only 1 strike not two. It looks like they removed Belly of the Beast.

          • Belly has been replaced with The Shadow Thief, was the same Strike, just with a different name/description.

  • ElectricZealot

    “Belly of the Beast (PS timed exclusive?) ”

    Yay… Another PS4 exclusive. :OP

    • Actually that’s been removed and replaced, doesn’t look like there will be a PS exclusive strike

      • ElectricZealot

        Appreciate it, Ryan.. Thank you! Keep up the excellent work and reporting on the game….

      • Greg Hellman

        A PS exclusive crucible map tho. Right?

  • Jack

    I’m astonished at bungie’s lack of loyalty towards Xbox… You’d think we’d be getting the exclusives

    • That Guy

      How about no one gets exclusives. The end

      • Zach

        All about the money

    • Young Thug’s Butt Plug

      Loyalty for what? I own an Xbox one and a ps4, I bought Destiny on Ps4. Who cares?

    • Alastor Lakiska Lines

      Except for the Hawkmoon, nothing good is exclusive! And it is only timed exclusive, just like several other games had their DLCs for XBox months before the release of those for PS3.

      • Jack

        Yeah but for dlc availability differences both consoles ultimately pay the same price, while I’m paying the same 20 dollars ps users pay for less content

        • Alastor Lakiska Lines

          I think your phrasing is a bit off….as the PS users have more so far

          And you get the same thing for the same money, just that you get a part of it later (you would have a right to complain, if the content would be perma locked for XBox-Users) and you guys don’t even see the bad parts of the exclusive content for PS-Players. Our Exotic-Loot-Pool is bigger than yours, so we have a smaller chance to get specific weapons, 2 of the 3 exclusive weapons (namely 4th Horsemen and Monte Carlo) are pretty bad and the Hawkmoon may be awesome, but as Xûr won’t sell it, until they are released for you guys too, most PS-Players won’t have it either.

          • TJbrena

            360 player here. I have to agree. When the Comet hits, the PS3/4 timed-exclusive content becomes available for Xbox players, which means that – barring a new round of timed-exclusive content for PS3/4 owners – Xbox users get more overall from the Comet than PS3/4 users.

    • cool_herc

      Maybe you missed the fact that we (Xbox users) WILL be getting the exclusives this Fall.

    • DiamondDNice

      It’s not about loyalty. it’s about money. Sony paid extra so they get extra. It’s business not charity.

  • SickOfPeopleComplaining

    Jack are you serious ffs..

    Btw, Ryan, ShdwFlm is one of the people who work for your rival site, destinydb.com! Fun fact!

  • metalman5150

    o la la!
    May 19th.
    May our marks be true!

  • XEGtechnomancer

    Has there been any word on how gear is earned in the prison of elders? Will it be like the crucible or is there a more specific rout to get gear?

    • WSquared88

      If it is going to be a horde style gamemode than it is likely we will get loot rolls every 10 rounds or something with an exotic roll at 50 or something. Another way that they could do it, which is more likely, is that you get a new type of currency every couple of rounds and you spend that at a new vendor on the reef.

      • MakkinjeM

        Wouldn’t surprise me. Though we have enough types of currency by now don’t we..

  • PeeJay

    Didn’t see any mention of the exotic class items – will these be arriving in HoW do we know?

  • LokeMata

    Them Exotic ships better have that BLING stuff on it maaan. (even though its whatever LoL)

    • NLK3

      I want the ships to do something interesting in-game, like drop ship stuff, temporary buffs for 5 minutes at the start of missions (different buffs per ship), or something, and exotic sparrows with combat potential: one that detonas when taken too much damage at enemy proximity with a 30 sec cooldown or by activating the super on the sparrow, a sparrow with blades to make the side-step cause damage equal your melee, etc.

      • Greg Hellman

        Or be a mino vault you can access from orbit

        • Adam McKinney Souza

          OMG I didn’t know I needed that until I saw this.

  • Isaac FluffyWolf Rader

    Finally! We can get the Fate of All Fools!

  • NLK3

    I’m hoping the area would have some diversity, like it may be a survival mode, but think like a roulette thing: all tier 2, all knights, all, thralls, pikes only, colossi and captains and witches… OH MY, etc. Just think about it! ENEMY COMBO DIVERSITY!!! I always wanted custom crucible matches like in other shooters, especially Halo, but maybe in Destiny 2?

  • Oriel76

    Judging by the number of quests leaked, it seems that DLC “campaign” is going to be as short as DLC1.

    And indeed that Arena thing looks like it’s going to be a horde mode… I hope Bungie is going to make something different, because falling into a pit to kill hundreds of enemies is nothing new and can get boring if no game changing mechanics is added.

    Finally, Trial Of Osiris is intriguing me. I hope the final stage is to let a rather large number of player access it, cause if the difficulty is planned to be as we already know many won’t be able to do it -> lack of content for the greater number ?

    • Alastor Lakiska Lines

      If you only count the story missions it is short, but this time there are 3 Quests (so I guess Bounty rows), while in the Dark Below, there were only 2 and the Urn of Sacrifice even lead to a 1 time unique mission with audio, so we might get something similiar.

  • Dregden Yor

    Will this article be updated if any new information comes out?

  • M1KE404

    im a little confused… are the Trials of Osiris exclusive for the ones that buyed the DLC or it comes with the expansion for all?

  • ben

    The more I think about it, the better this actually sounds… The Archon Priest escaped from the Prison of Elders… although the Jellyhorn smashes him a new one hopefully his buddies might be a little harder. I’m thinking we’re going to be battling against a full blown prison break full of bad a$$ Fallen enemies. A team of 3 is fine, you can always have a party of 6 if you enjoy the banter.
    Provided everyone is dropping regular orbs this mode shouldn’t really be too challenging.
    Will we be getting another Iron Banner before this drops? A cheeky queens bounty would also be fun to tool up to the max before the next DLC

  • J.T

    Well, that’s a disappointment. I had hoped that since they removed the raid, they would at least make up for it by adding more story content. Instead, it’s the same length as the TDB. Unless the Prison of Elders turns out to be amazing, this will probably be my last purchase from Bungie.

    • Mark

      Okay bye

  • Hanayo Asa

    Just a note on the fact that Vex Mythoclast is apparently fixed. Well.. According to Reddit and Bungie’s forums. So take it with a grain of salt.

    • HenryDF

      What was wrong with it?

      • Hanayo Asa

        The ammo and the accuracy. It was affected by the Fusion Rifles nerf.

  • SorrowSong

    Hidden change: Cryptarch packages are now a random reward from public events

    • David B

      No they are not. It’s because the postmaster is full so it pushes a package to lost items to make room for a public event package.

  • Okay…

    So only 14% of Destiny players max out their crucible marks on the weekly, but the “champions” of the PvP get their own dedicated space on Mercury. Seems legit.

    • nick

      right? I’m kind of bummed that I’ll have to play crucible and be super good at it to get cool stuff .

      • BoB LeNoob

        Why are you?
