Following the Rise of Iron title being trademarked, Bungie released a teaser trailer for their June 9th live reveal. Whether to raise interest, or just an honest mistake, Microsoft revealed the September 20th release date along with some of the synopsis.

Though the posting was immediately taken down, this did not stop a further leak of the Rise of Iron trailer on Snapchat by Reddit user RiseofIronLeaker.

The new trailer has released a number of details, most noticeably the new storyline for the DLC. In order to recieve the new expansion, players must have already owned The Taken King. Pre-orders of Rise of Iron include ownership of a black of version of the Gjallarhorn the rocket launcher. The expansion itself will include new quests, armor, gear, and the new social space known as “The Plaguelands Zone.”

Bungie’s official livestream will drop at 10am PST/ 1 PM EST, with more details and gameplay to be revealed.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
