Hard-Mode Destiny Raid Coming Earlier Than Expected

Hard-Mode Destiny Raid Coming Earlier Than Expected

In their latest weekly Destiny update blog, Bungie took the time to thank their fans for patience with the game’s many updates and fixes. They also congratulated fans who have completed ‘King’s Fall’ the game’s latest raid. However, as they noted, things in Destiny are about to get much harder.

‘King’s Fall Raid: Hard Mode’ was scheduled for an October 30 launch, bringing an added layer of challenge to the game for more-experienced players. Bungie are launching the hard-mode raid on October 23 now, a full week in advance. The recommended light for players taking on the harder raid is 300-320, and the gear that drops will be between 310-320.

Bungie also took the time to justify the game’s new microtransaction system and other patches in their weekly blog. Dataminers had uncovered that paid boosts for each class were going to be coming to the game, but Bungie insists these files were simply left over from development.

 What you’re seeing are remnant files for Three of Coins or Moldering Shard like items that would have been available from Xûr. Ultimately, the team decided that they didn’t have a place in the game, and cut them from the experience. You’re seeing some dust and echoes from the cutting room floor.

Files that get datamined aren’t official sources of news, though we understand why they are intriguing.
Destiny: The Taken King is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
