Just a glorified overpriced dlc, if this the future of this franchise then I have no interest in it. I thought Bungie leaving MS would give them more freedom,but its made them a totally different company.

They're the exact same company gameplay wise. One might argue better.

What the hell is wrong with getting new content a few times a year? This isn't a tiny DLC like TDB which was a disappointment. They seem to have learned from that mistake.

I'm not excusing the lackluster campaign from vanilla Destiny, but people complaining about having to pay $40 for something that could give hundreds of hours of playtime is absurd.

Gaming isn't a free hobby but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than most other things.

The expansion video from E3 looks really cool, but $40 for an expansion? Hell no. I'll be playing MGS.

Ciporta19801247d ago

In the UK it's £39.99 which is more like $55-60. I am a massive fan of destiny and a huge supporter of this game, but that is ridiculous and there is no way I'm paying that.

xHeavYx1247d ago

Especially (like I said below) when they are selling the collection with the full game and all DLC for $60.

JWiLL5521247d ago

Wow 40 whole dollars. That's like...A steak and a beer at a decent restaurant.

Gaming should be free! I want to pay $60 once and be entertained forever!

xHeavYx1247d ago

New players will pay $60, day 1 supporters will have paid $135. I guess that steak and beer did some damage to the parts of the brain used for thinking.

LackTrue4K1247d ago

This expansion DLC looked great! Love how they added Thor Hawkeye and Iron-man base after the Avengers movie.

Sensiblesteve1247d ago

Destiny can't seriously be bothering with this - they are making it look like a new game release. They should be giving all this content for free

KingDustero1247d ago

So you're saying the devs who put hundreds of hours into this should go unpaid?

xHeavYx1247d ago

I don't agree that it should be free, but charging $40 for it feels like armed robbery, especially when the edition that includes the full game and all DLC so far costs $60.

JWiLL5521247d ago

And this is exactly what I'm talking about. Gamers entitled to the point that they actually believe their hobby should be free.

What a joke.

maybelovehate1247d ago

Looks great. Polygon has a really in depth article about how they are changing the narrative too. Which was definitely the weakest part of the game.

I can't wait to play it. Just wish we had more to do in Destiny this summer.

rezzah1247d ago

Do you have a link? I'd like to know how they plan to improve the telling of the story.

Christopher1247d ago

Are there new upgrades for old subclasses?

New content that actually feels new and not running through the same things going backwards instead of forward?

New forms of content? Space combat? More types of vehicles for use in combat? All of these with their own upgrade paths and equipment types?

Or is this just that one missing subclass with some new light levels thrown in while you fight the same things just at higher levels with slightly different hues?

KingDustero1247d ago

If you actually watched/read what they have revealed then you would know the answer to most of those questions.

Let me help you out a bit:

Christopher1247d ago (Edited 1247d ago )

I think you missed my point. Those questions? They're rhetorical. I know what's being included. What I'm getting at is that those questions are ones that people have been asking about and yet are not the focus of Destiny's next expansion.

My point was to outline some fairly basic expectations of the game's first on-disc expansion by asking questions we already know the answer to. And those answers are "No" to all but the last.

Allsystemgamer1247d ago

Last paragraph pretty much summed up TE dlc

maybelovehate1247d ago (Edited 1247d ago )

They didn't say anything about altering existing Supers/Subclasses, but almost every expansion has exotic gear that alters/enhances supers and subclasses so it is probably safe to assume that will be the case in Taken King. Speaking of Exotic Altering Supers, how awesome is that Nighthawk helmet!

xHeavYx1247d ago

What kind of admin doesn't know that, unless you use /s, people won't get it? /s
