After today’s Court of Oryx-focused livestream, Bungie offered a quick look at one of the biggest secrets still left undetailed after the last several weeks of coverage. The team showed off a teaser video with a brief glimpse of King’s Fall, and announced  a release date of September 18 for the new raid.

That date should give the most hardcore of players three days to power-up and prepare before diving into The Taken King’s biggest challenge, after the September 15 launch of the rest of the new content. As for what is on offer, the teaser’s narration makes it clear that confronting Oryx in the story missions is only the beginning, and that King’s Fall will see players descending into an as-yet unseen part of the massive Hive Dreadnaught.

Our Take
Players will have to hustle if they want to be among the first to confront King's Fall. Having played much of The Taken King content for our recent cover story, I know there's a lot of story missions, leveling, and gear acquisition needed to feel fully powered in the new Destiny adventure. My guess is that the earliest players are going to find a big challenge when they enter King's Fall for the first time.
