Bungie has responded to another leak of their upcoming downloadable content House of Wolves. The latest leak came from a Japanese version of the game that showed off new weapons, armor, stats and locations. It also included information that suggested that the release date of the content would be in May but could also be March. Speaking on the official Bungie.net forums however, community manager David Dague told fans that they shouldn’t trust the information in the leaks as the data is simply placeholder and could change at a moment’s notice.

Bungie has announced that the raid Crota’s End from the new DLC The Dark Below will be receiving a hard mode, much like the first raid. The new difficulty will make enemies within the raid more challenging and increase the effort required to defeat the end boss by a significant degree. “Prepare to take better care of your teammates,” say Bungie. “You’ll have fewer options for healing yourself, and each other.” However, the extra challenge might be worth it due to the newly weapons that are more powerful than most other in the game as well as a special shader and an exclusive ship. The hard mode is not currently available but is due to launch on January 21.
In an interview with IGN David Dague, better known as Deej on Bungie.net, has spoken about the story of Destiny, how The Dark Below plot works and the plans for Destiny 2. Dague said that Bungie is aware of the criticism that was voiced about the narrative of Destiny and will use that feedback to create better experiences in the future. He also explained that he sees Destiny as an introduction, getting players acquainted with the world and the enemies so that future games can expand and reveal more information.
Bungie has revealed that their first piece of DLC for Destiny will release 9 December. The developer has also released some details about exactly what the expansion will bring. The Dark Below will include a variety of new content for players according to Bungie.. The biggest batch of content will come in three new campaign missions that will attempt to expand on the disappointing story that came in the original game.
