Destiny’s House of Wolves DLC finally has a release date, nearly six months after the game’s last major expansion went live, and a series of weekly dispatches from the folks at Bungie will help count down the final month separating the Destiny community from a new wave of post-launch content.
Earlier this week, Activision published the prologue video for Destiny’s House of Wolves DLC. The video dropped alongside news that we’re just over one month removed from the expansion’s release date and we’re already starting to get some idea of what to expect when House of Wolves goes live.
According to a follow-up post on Bungie.net, the studio behind Destiny will gradually unveil some of the new content from House of Wolves, beginning with a tour of The Reef on April 22. The road to Destiny’s second expansion also includes some live gameplay previews of the new Trials of Osiris and Prison of Elders endgame content. Relatively little is known about the former, which was revealed this week, but Bungie has already confirmed the latter will be a “cooperative multiplayer arena.”
In addition to the upcoming House of Wolves reveals, Bungie published Destiny Update 1.1.2 this week, along with patch notes for the game’s latest update. The biggest change in this week’s patch is also the one that received the most publicity in recent weeks — the expansion of Destiny players’ vaults — but there’s plenty of other changes in the latest Destiny update.
Those interested in the complete patch notes for Destiny Update 1.1.2 can find them on Bungie.net.

Destiny’s House of Wolves DLC is being developed for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The expansion is currently scheduled to hit PSN and Xbox Live on May 19.
