Datto, MoreConsole, and My name is Byf were able to play the new Crucible maps coming to The Dark Below at PSX, which are listed further below in this article.
There’s also a hot fix ready to go for The Dark Below, and finally TTL talked with DeeJ and Luke Smith about Crota’s End and more![divider]
Vault of Glass
First of all, wanted to update you all on the speculation about the Vault of Glass ‘harder’ mode – at level 31.
It looks like this is actually not coming in TDB:
@DoDEast @DestinyNews_net There is neither a "new level 31 hard VoG," nor a "third difficulty for VoG" in The Dark Below.
— Luke Smith (@thislukesmith) December 8, 2014
So it’s not getting an added difficulty level in TDB, though it’s still possible for the future, as I’m sure they’re going to continue updating VoG a bit (the podcast below hints at it).

The guys over at TTL talked to DeeJ and Luke Smith about the Crota’s End raid and Destiny’s evolution!
Listen to it here.
Bungie user research reached out to DeeJ asking him if he knew of a group who as he recalled on the podcast “understand social gaming, have pre-existing friendships, and value teamwork, problem solving and coordination as a group.”
DeeJ knew of such a group, and began coordinating what was referred to internally as “Bring your clan to work day”.
