Destiny Gets Its First Expansion in “The Dark Below”

Destiny Expansion 1: The Dark Below offers up new weapons, armor, and equipment to earn with Legendary and Exotic items encouraging anyone in this interstellar fight to get to blasting with a new, raised level cap.

Activision's announcement of the expansion states that players will find new story quests and missions, in addition to a new cooperative Strike titled "The Will of Crota", complimented by three new competitive multiplayer arenas.

Those three multiplayer maps are called Pantheon, Skyshock, and The Cauldron, though PlayStation platforms will also have access to more exclusive content in The Undying Mind. The Dark Below will cost $19.99 on its own, though any consumers who purchased the game's season pass will have immediate access to it without adding to the cost they've already paid at the register or via online console marketplaces.

Destiny Expansion 1: The Dark Below will be available on both Xbox and PlayStation platforms on December 9th.
