Bungie is promising some free Destiny content that’ll be available to all players, regardless of whether or not they bought The Dark Below expansion.


The developer promised this and more in its weekly update.

Bungie is promising new pieces of gear and weapons, new daily bounties, but most importantly, five additional bounty slots will be available to everyone.

The update also talked a little bit about the new vendor ‘Eris’ who will arrive at the tower and will be an integral part of storytelling in The Dark Below expansion.

“Quests are a new storytelling mechanism that we’re using in the Dark Below. They are multistage tasks that culminate in a reward, similar to the Exotic Bounties you may have experienced. Unlike Exotic Bounties, the Quests in the Dark Below can be completed by players who are solely focused on the cooperative story content of The Dark Below,” community manager DeeJ explained.

“For example, one Quest creates a continuous chain of multiple tasks that culminates in the ‘Will of Crota’ Strike. Another may simply ask you to return to Earth to take down the surging Hive threat.

“This new way of storytelling in Destiny is a bit experimental in nature. We’ve seen players spending a lot of time in the Tower, and we’ve heard loud and clear that players would like more unique gear and additional Bounties. Eris is one part storyteller, one part Tower Vendor, and tens parts creepy.”

More The Dark Below details are expected in the coming weeks as we get closer to December 9.
