Put on your traveling cloak/armband/jaunty hip towel: Bungie's laid out the first details of The Dreadnaught. The new Patrol zone coming in The Taken King is an "an inscrutable loot-filled fortress," built with everything Bungie has learned from the first year of Destiny, according to the latest weekly update.
The last two expansions added new story missions, Strikes, Raids, and Crucible modes, but it's always been the same handful of Patrol areas - you could probably jump backwards around the Hellmouth blindfolded if you've been playing since launch. You'd better shake off that complacency, because Bungie doesn't want Patrol to feel like easy mode when you plunge into the Dreadnaught.
New Bounties and Patrol Missions will lure you into Oryx's flagship, but you'll have to explore far beyond the glowing waypoints to discover its hidden treasures and foes (and there is a good chance that you'll run into that charming Darkblade fellow in the gallery above). Bungie says its Public Events will be more challenging than any you've encountered before - just figuring out how to complete them will require some effort.
Bungie plans to stream a live expedition into the Dreadnaught before The Taken King releases on September 15. We'll let you know once the studio locks down a date and time.
