In Sheep’s Clothing

“Not so fast,” you say. “What about that ‘next expansion’ you mentioned?”

house of wolves release date may

Expansion II: The House of Wolves will be released sometime in the second quarter of this year. Sometime within those three months (April, May, and June), we’ll have a new adventure to embark upon with you.

We’re keeping all other details under wraps for now. There is a special team here that’s dedicated to creating some new ways for you to play Destiny. They’re also making the game you know a better reflection of what we’ve learned about you since you’ve started playing.

And on a long enough timeline, we’ll also talk about what we’re planning for this Fall.

Keep That Thing Oiled

Can we talk about those weapons now? Because we have a problem:

Your Pulse Rifle really needs some love.

    so since u finally let the cat out of the bag. what are we suppose to do in destiny until may and june come out. this is february and thus far your current game mode has become well stale and dry. eribus has no more story, crota is dead twice over with many of us gaurdians not really interested in him until you finally fix the drop system where a person does not just get shards for killing a hard boss. what is your vision or ideas until then. dont even think about saying IRON BANNER either. you fail on that big time and people dont trust you on the next next Iron Banner

    • Christian

      Do what you do with every other FPS that has ever existed, either give it a break or play Multiplayer. I don’t understand why everything is suddenly different now that Destiny is out. It’s just another FPS, treat it like one.

  • novalor

    where’s the events? iron banner aside, there have been none since queens bounty. iron banner has lost its shine since it’s the only event running and still has lackluster loot

  • Scott Pam

    Feedback: Pulse rifles have the impact of throwing cottonballs at Ft. Knox.

    Feedback: Change the missions and get some new ones before we get so dried out from the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over….get my drift? Just making something a level 30 that we have played 40 times since September is not NEW material.

    Feeback: Having no Shards or whatever to upgrade weapons without playing 24/7/365 is also frustrating and diminishes the game. Try going into the Crucible where 6 players are fully upgraded and get one shot kills while you are still two rungs away and your weapon has no effect. Then, to top it off, you have to do Crucible to get weapons from Ikora. SMH…not working for me anymore.

    I love Destiny but it’s getting to be the same old boring grind everynight. If I hear OmniCrotch screaming one more time….

    • Aaron Watkins

      In crucible except IB, your stats are all the same, it does not matter if your gear or weapons are not fully upgraded, you are all the same lvl. This has been known for a long time.

      • WSquared88

        While the attack rating is normalized in normal crucible the perks on each gun still stick around. The only thing that normal crucible does is normalize the attack numbers and make the stats for the guns the same as they would be if they were a normal gun of that same class. The perks are still there so maxing your weapon does make a difference in normal crucible albeit a small difference.

  • sbrozzi

    Please, PLEASE stop smacking auto rifles with the nerf bat! Just because you want balance doesn’t mean you make them less attractive, just make the other weapons better. Give the better perks to Pulse Rifles but stop screwing with the base damage on autos!

    Remember The Trials of Osiris? neither do I! What happened to that?

    Vault space? My vault is filling up with soon to be useless auto rifles and VOG Raid Gear. Gear that makes me as powerful as a guy that bought the game last week!

    You in the buffing mood? Buff VOG Gear and Weapons and see how happy we all are.

    So I completed the Crota’s End raid the other day and was gifted with two Radiant Shards and nothing else. That shouldn’t happen. ever.

  • Toh Tohs

    hahahaha Nerf Nerf Nerf Nerf and DELAY… OUTSTANDING lmao –
    this game is such a joke now – fix the bugs, fuck restart the WHOLE game from scratch. go back to the drawing boards – sell yourself back to Microsoft and find something else to fuck up –
    I HONESTLY believe that because you teamed with sony and activision for this game, you essentially killed how amazing this game really could have been!
    Don’t even get me started on the Trials of Osiris that was announced BEFORE launch that has managed to DIS-THE-FUCK-APPEAR
    wow god lol this is a shit storm and a half waiting to be blown across humanity lol

    • What is wrong with you

      lol could you lol please lmao talk WHAT THE like a real lol person? lmao

      • True Radiant Free

        Like a real lol person?

    • Christian

      Why are you so angry over a computer game? If you don’t like it, why still talk about it? I’m sorry you are so upset over it. It just seems very usual.

  • Mike

    DeeJ – “We hear your complaints about Vault space and VoG weapon woes. We are working to fix them. In the meantime, here are some useless tweaks that have taken time away from fixing ACTUAL GLITCHES within the game. (heavy ammo, gamebreaking Scrota glitches and raid ending VoG glitches, a myriad of animal and fruit errors I’m sure we have all gotten. But hey! Shitty pulse rifles are gonna be a little less shitty. But probably still shitty.”

    • Christian

      You do realise that it’s not just one person that works on bug fixing, right? There isn’t one team of people working on everything, there are lots of individuals that specialize in different things fixing bugs and problems; Weapon Mechanics, World Design, A.I Behaviour. Them altering Pulse rifles doesn’t mean other things will be fixed any slower. It just means that Balancing weapons are the next things on the Weapon Mechanic Team’s List. It’s not like the Raid team go on break when the Weapons Guys are doing their thing.

  • Abstract

    Anyone else notice the hand cannons at 13% but showing 7% lol

    • Travis Knight

      Looks like Bungie fixed the graphic on their website, but Planet Destiny hasn’t gotten the new one yet.

  • WSquared88

    I really like that they had a nice nod to Monty in here. It’s really sad that Monty died the way he did and so young. On a different topic I like how they tell us everything about any connection issues that Destiny has in the What’s up DOC? section, but I wish they would do this for the rest of Destiny and let us know how the game is progressing more than just saying we’re working on it or its coming eventually.

  • Dran

    Nothing left to do now,got it all cept a couple of exotics that are crappy,been a great ride,the dlc was great but so easy and short,maybe introduce new good exotic bounties or something,thanks for the ride guys but april is to long away,c yu then im of to evolve

    • Mike

      I’m only missing Hard Light, Red Death, Heart of Praxic Fire, and the ATS/8 Arachnid. AKA – I’m done trying to get exotics. Hunter, Titan and Warlock all level 32 with a Grimoire of 2610 (who cares). All raid guns from Scrota and Asseon as well. Finally able to stop my addiction and see how flawed this game really is. Bungle is like a little kid who takes the ball and goes home whenever we play the game not they way they intended.

  • Skarush

    anyone else noticed the “with help from your mom”?
    wtf bungie

  • Lee Juriet

    Boo, Hiss, PS exclusive weapon was mentioned!

  • CoxDugan
