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

The launch trailer for Destiny (opens in new tab)'s fast-approaching Rise of Iron (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab) have found their way into the game, and private Crucible matches (opens in new tab) are online for custom brawling.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
