Destiny: House of Wolves teaser confirms level cap hike, hints at new gear upgrades

Destiny's second expansion, House of Wolves, introduces at least one new social area, the Queen's Bay, and developer Bungie released a video teaser for it today ahead of tomorrow's reveal livestream.

The brief clip offers a glance at the Queen's Bay, which is located in the purple-tastic Reef area that the Awoken call home. Guardians will be able to visit the Queen's Bay to hang out with other players and interact with new non-playable characters, including a Fallen creature. Also included in the footage are glimpses of what appear to be new upgrades for existing raid weapons like Fatebringer and raid armor like the Warlock's Cuirass of the Hezen Lords.

In addition, a shot of the character screen confirms that House of Wolves will raise Destiny's Light level cap to at least 34. The game's first expansion, The Dark Below, increased the limit from 30 to 32.

Bungie's community manager, Deej, will host a livestream on the studio's Twitch channel tomorrow along with creative director Christopher Barrett and community member Gothalion. The three of them will provide a walkthrough of the Queen's Bay and discuss elements like the area's new vendors. Bungie's livestream will kick off at 2 p.m. ET.

House of Wolves, which will not include a new raid, will be available May 19. You can watch its prologue below.
