You’ve conquered the Iron Banner, mastered the Nightfall strikes, and have swept through the Vault of Glass with your eyes closed. You’re ready for Destiny’s first expansion.

Bungie and Activision have detailed exactly what you can expect from The Dark Below. In addition to new gear, players can boost their end-game light level from 30 to 32. You’ll also get five more bounty slots, which should make it less painful to pursue multiple exotics at the same time.

The new story missions focus on the Hive god, Crota (whose sword you can wield against its makers in one of the base game missions). You’ll get your tasks from a new character at the tower, Eris.

There’s also a new three-person strike called The Will of Crota, a new six-player raid called Crota’s End, and three new multiplayer maps. PlayStation players will get additional time-limited exclusives (until at least next fall). That comes in the form of a second strike, The Undying Mind.

The Dark Below will cost you $19.99 or as part of the expansion pass with the second DLC pack for $34.99. For more Destiny, check out the All Hallows Eve event going on right now.
