House of Wolves Release Date – May 19th

Published on: Apr 13, 2015 @ 10:28

As reported by Polygon, Activision has announced the release date for the House of Wolves expansion. As predicted, it’s coming on May 19th.

You can check out what we know so far about the Reef’s social space, HoW weapons and armor, and loot changes that are coming with the new expansion.

Trials of Osiris is also most likely making its grand entrance with HoW, and we’ve outlined everything there is to know about it (so far) in this article.

We also have a “wish list” of what we’d like to see in HoW; be sure to let us know what you’d like to see.

Bungie has also confirmed that the 1.1.2 patch, which will set the stage for HoW, will be coming this month (April).


After House of Wolves, there will be what’s currently known as “Plague of Darkness” – which will be a “major content expansion” that’s bigger than what we’ve seen with The Dark Below and House of Wolves.

We have a second expansion pack on the way and a major content release coming in the fall and a very robust pipeline planned after that.

Beyond that, whenever you have a large and highly engaged community, there are obviously opportunities for us to deliver a lot of different kinds of content that we think that player base would find valuable and appreciate and that’s what we’re planning on doing.


The official expansion site is also live, but it doesn’t show much.

Expand your Destiny adventure with a wealth of weapons, armor, and gear to earn in new story missions, three new competitive multiplayer maps, and a new cooperative Strike.

Expansion II introduces a new competitive elimination mode in the Crucible and an all-new arena activityThe Prison of Elders.

Elimination mode is most likely referring to the Trials of Osiris. Is the “Prison of Elders” the raid, or something else?

    • ohkay

      That’s what i thought, damnit

  • sbrozzi

    Man Bungie does teaser trailers well!

    Hopefully this is harder than Crota.

  • Barrrrrrrrrrr

    I see elimination as rumble without respawn until everyone else is dead and I hope that “Prison of elders” is some type of survival scenario with endless waves of fallen.

    If it’s not, take notes.

  • Adamms

    Yes. This will be good.

  • inquisitor314

    elimination would be excellent. ticket counters would also be nice. im just hoping this time it wont be the same old BS. 8 months of the same type of cruc is like wtf are you thinking

  • Matt Dunnigan

    alright its about time!!!

  • Yomi

    I’m so scared that the raid will be some sort of horde mode

    • Hoopthriller99

      I’m right there with you. i want a horde game mode but i don’t want it to be the raid… they need to top vault of glass with this one.

      • Zach

        Well sorry to break it to you…

        • ben c

          Sorry fellas – Its in black and white, this ain’t no raid…. its something else, something new, something scary.
          I’m not going to judge before having a blast, but it better be good otherwise I’m going to hang my controller up and move on.
          check my character if you want ben_critten I have nailed it

  • MakkinjeM

    This gives me quite some hope, to what I presumed to happen. This archon/priest/kell, is so clearly displayed in this early release of content, that it must be the political leader of the betrayal, but most likely not the final raid boss (I cannot believe it’s shown this clearly already). Therfore I reckon Kaliks Prime is going to be the final raid boss! I’m gonna love this raid over the other two. Definitely. ^^

  • rashgalaxy6

    High I was reading there is not going to be a new raid is this true???

    • metalman5150

      Yes this is true, but there will be a three-player battle arena that is being touted as End Game content, so maybe it will be enough to satisfy your Raid Craving.

  • Fabellss

    Could the snowy part of the teaser be Europa the moon orbiting Jupiter? Im not saying it must be but if Im not mistaken its the only know area in Destiny that has snowy weather.

    Thought I could mention it here since you didnt cover it in the teaser analysis 🙂
