Lord Saladin is pissed in this Destiny: Rise of Iron launch trailer teaser

The launch trailer for Destiny's fast-approaching Rise of Iron expansion will star a very angry Lord Saladin and his very fiery axe. Bungie posted a brief teaser for the trailer (which will probably also serve as the expansion's opening cinematic) on its official Twitter page; it's not really clear what Saladin is swinging at, but he definitely wants it dead. The burning vibe reminds me of that rejected Destiny 2 concept pitch, come to think of it.

Rise of Iron will be released on Tuesday, September 20, but you can already start enjoying some of its accoutrements: new Exotic weapons have found their way into the game, and private Crucible matches are online for custom brawling.
