Destiny: House of Wolves site offers glimpses of expansion's new gear

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Destiny: House of Wolves, the second expansion for Destiny, will introduce plenty of new weapons and armor to the game, just like its predecessor, The Dark Below. The add-on won't be released for another three and a half weeks, but you can take a gander at some of the gear it contains right now on Bungie's website.

Vanguard weapons, faction firearms, stunning ships and armor for all three classes of Guardians — it's all there, approximately 80 different images rotating through 18 little windows (see screenshot below). That includes "Fallen and Osiris-themed collections" that players will have to earn in new high-level activities. House of Wolves is introducing the Prison of Elders, a cooperative battle arena, as endgame content instead of a new raid. The Trials of Osiris is rumored to be a three-on-three Clash event.

House of Wolves will raise Destiny's level cap from 32 to 34, and players will be able to exchange ascendant and radiant materials and redeem commendations for reputation to help them get there. Guardians will also have the chance to level up their existing gear through a process called "ascension." The upgrades allow for maximum attack to reach 365 on weapons like Fatebringer, Bungie confirmed in a livestream earlier this week.

Bungie will reveal details about the Trials of Osiris in an April 29 livestream, and will lift the curtain on the Prison of Elders in a presentation on May 6. House of Wolves will be released May 19; you can watch the prologue below.
