The Iron Lords have fallen and it has come to Lord Saladin to call upon the Guardians from within the walls of "The Tower" to defend the citizens of Earth. As Guardians prepare to take on their new adventure that will send players into a dizzying world that has been hidden deep behind closed doors. The job of the guardians is to now contain the outbreak that is set to bring a new and fearsome enemy back.

Many of you are prepared to take across the Cosmodrome in order to quell the threat of a new danger, some of you might have taken a bit of break from Destiny. So, if you're a new player, returning player, or die-hard super-powered Warlock, here are a few things you need to know before diving into Rise of Iron and the lead up to Destiny 2.

Destiny: The Rise of Iron Will Not be on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360

For many of you, this is a bit of a sting, and a tough pill to swallow. Unfortunately, this is also the reality that Bungie has set in store to continue forward as they've stated 90% of their player base is on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Luckily for you, if you don't upgrade to the current generation, you'll be able to still enjoy some of the games currently active content except the following in this list:

  • Trials of Osiris
  • Iron Banner
  • Live Events

Luckily, this gives a bit more longevity to your game as raids will remain available.

If You Get Destiny: Rise of Iron after Upgrading to PS4 or Xbox One, You Keep Progression

One of the most painful parts about moving up to the current generation is the fact it means you need new hardware. To do this you'll need to purchase a PlayStation 4 and have PlayStation Plus – or you'll need to upgrade to an Xbox One and ensure you have Xbox Live.

Once upgraded to one of these consoles from a PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360, Bungie has made it easy to move over your characters, and will allow you to instantly jump in and enjoy the game. Only downside that exists, you will want to grab a Destiny: Rise of Iron Complete Edition to obtain all the content to date.

For those of you who already have PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and have all content to date, you are in luck. For those of you I just mentioned, just upgrade your games if you haven't, this will ensure you have easy access to Destiny: The Rise of Iron.

Prepare Guardians, our latest threat is upon us, and this will be the most brutal fight for the Iron Lords.
