Rise of Iron was not present at Sony?s press conference this year, but a lot of info regarding the game was shared elsewhere. Creative director Christopher Barrett had a lot to say about the new Raid in an interview with?GameRant.
As expected, the new dungeon will pit Guardians against the Devil Splicers, a mutated version of the Fallen who are digging through the tombs of the Iron Lords in search of an ancient mystery. Barrett also said that the raid will have a similar opening to Destiny?s first ever raid: The Vault of Glass. That mission began with players fighting to open the vaults? doors by guarding pedestals located in the public space of the planet Venus. It was always cool as a regular player to stumble into a raid team fighting at the vault entrance, so hopefully Rise of Iron?s raid can recreate that feeling.
Barrett told Express that the game will also have a heavy focus on the history of the Iron Lords and Lord Saladin, who players will know as the NPC behind Destiny?s Iron Banner PvP mode.
?They?ve been playing the Iron Banner Tournament since the beta, and we wanted to dive deeper into that lore,? said Barrett. ?We wanted to bring forward the character of Lord Saladin, really dive into his backstory and learn more about these weapons that players have gotten familiar with in the Iron Banner.?
