Destiny: The Taken King Is Out Now
Bungie has released The Taken King the follow up to the massive hit Destiny. With Destiny The Taken King, players will get to experience new adventures, challenges, enemies, and weapons that make for the most ambitious addition to the Destiny universe yet.
With a new storyline introducing Oryx, Crota’s vengeful father, an all-new destination, three new Guardian subclasses, a massive arsenal of new armor, weapons and exotics, new Strikes and Crucible maps, and the new ‘King’s Fall’ Raid that will put players to the ultimate test, there has never been a better time to jump in to “Become Legend,” particularly for new players beginning their journey as a Guardian. The Taken King major expansion takes players deep into the chambers of a new destination, the ‘Dreadnaught’ ship, to defeat Oryx, and his Taken Army.
"The biggest new video game franchise launch in history is back!" said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "For the millions who have been playing Destiny already, The Taken King offers epic new adventures across all modes of play, with all-new enemies, destinations, weapons and challenges. And if you're new to Destiny, this is the perfect time to jump in, by getting all of the incredible adventures of Destiny to date in one epic Legendary Edition for a value that won't be seen anywhere in gaming this year."
“Destiny has the best and most passionate community we’ve ever seen at Bungie. As we started planning for year two, we wanted to surprise, engage and challenge those that have put in hundreds, if not thousands of hours of their personal time in to the universe,” said Luke Smith, creative director for The Taken King at Bungie. “We hope The Taken King will exceed the high bar of expectations from our voracious audience, and welcome new Guardians into this next great chapter.”
