Destiny House Of Wolves Prison Of Elders Reveal Video
Here are Destiny's new challenge for the week of July 28
As guessed by numerous fans, Prison of Elders is a variation on the Horde mode first popularized years ago by Gears of War. In the storyline of House of Wolves, most of the Fallen soldiers that previously served the Queen of the Awoken have betrayed her, but one of the Fallen remained behind in the Reef and is still loyal. This Fallen character, named Variks, acts as a warden for the prison, and he engineers an opportunity for guardians to test their mettle within the dreaded detention facility. Variks acts both as the central narrator for the Prison, but also as the vendor for rewards. Looking beyond the story setup, Prison of Elders is built as an end-game activity for three players. Each run at the Prison of Elders requires three players.
The Destiny Weekly Reset for January 26 presents one of the better combination of activities in quite a while. PlayStation and Xbox players can look forward to a new Iron Banner event packed full of changes, the return of the rewarding Oryx Challenge, plus a Nightfall with a fun set of modifiers. Iron Banner will go live in Destiny at approximately 1 p.
As I noted in my write-up about House of Wolves , now is the best time for lapsed or new players to get into Destiny. The Prison of Elders arena mode and end-game PvP Trials of Osiris event round out an already compelling package of activities. At the same time, the endgame experience is increasingly group-centric. Lone wolf guardians or just players who hop on at odd hours are at a severe disadvantage, both in activities they can enjoy, and in the rewards they can reap. However, Bungie already has the tools and mechanics in place to solve the problem, and in the process the developer could enrich the anemic storytelling that has plagued the title since launch.
