Today Destiny fans can get the most out of their game by downloading House of Wolves, the second expansion for the fps mmo available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Those of you that purchased the Expansion Pass for $35 can begin your download immediately. Otherwise, you can purchase House of Wolves separately for $20. With it comes a plethora of new weapons, armor, missions, and pvp maps. Keep in mind you’ll also be able to upgrade your existing Exotic and Legendary gear before throwing it away or salvaging for parts.

“We continue to be humbled by the Destiny community, and remain fully committed to creating the best experience we can for the fans,” said Pete Parsons, COO of Bungie. “That means we’re listening every day to real-time feedback from the players. In the eight months since launch, we’ve supported the game with 17 updates that we believe have grown and improved the universe. House of Wolves is no different. For example, we’ve engineered a new upgrade path for your existing Exotic and Legendary gear, and we’re revamping our PvP system with a new rewards system and new PvP event called Trials of Osiris. We’re excited to see the response.”
