If there has been anything controversial within the video gaming industry the past month or so, its definitely all the commotion surrounding Bungie’s upcoming Destiny expansion, The Taken King.

Officially announced during E3 2015, The Taken King was announced to be the next big step within the Destiny adventure, but at a cost that many players are a bit upset about. With the past few expansions being $20 separately, and $35 for both, this new, single expansion, will run you $40. While many people are unhappy about the price point, Bungie has recently revealed exactly what you’ll be getting for your money with the upcoming expansion. I must say, I’m a bit please and relieved after seeing the recently released list, but I won’t know for sure if it’s worth the $40 until I get my hands on it. As a primarily PVP player of most games, I usually get gimped pretty good when it comes to buying expansions for any sort of MMO, companies just tend to cater more towards PVE than PVP on any given day, which is fine, I’m used to it by now. Let us know what you think of the new content on the way! Is it intriguing enough for you to want to spend another $40 on a game you’ve already paid close to $90 for? (Expansion included)

Here is the list of content that will be included within The Taken King.

  • New story missions and an array of sidequests that conspire to tell the story of our battle to defend our Solar System against Oryx and his Taken army

  • New narrative driven by cinematic cutscenes starring an engaging cast of characters

  • New Exotic Weapons, Exotic Armor, and Exotic Questlines

  • The Dreadnaught, a full new destination, with unique secrets, rituals, and treasures to uncover

  • A new breed of enemy combatants, The Taken, armed with new abilities and weapons

  • An increased Level Cap, and new ways for your Guardian to grow more powerful

  • The most substantial injection of new, unique, and redesigned weapons, armor, and talents to date

  • New subclasses with all new Supers and abilities

  • New cooperative Strikes with unique and dynamic new Boss battles

  • Redesigned and reimagined Strikes – Dust Palace, Undying Mind, and Cerberus Vae III – are now overrun by the Taken

  • New Crucible multiplayer maps with new Crucible modes, including the previously revealed Rift and Mayhem

  • And, of course, last but not least, our biggest six-player Raid yet.


It’s looking to be a pretty solid list to me so far. When compared to other MMO’s however, this just doesn’t cut it, but remember, Destiny technically “isn’t” and MMO, so…
