Destiny: The Taken King adds one new and huge location for players to explore called the Dreadnaught. Today in its weekly update, a developer from Bungie explained what players can expect from the Dreadnaught and when the expansion launches later this year.
The Dreadnaught is a flagship of the Taken which is a new enemy class coming with the expansion. The ship originally was a Hive tomb ship but was stolen by the taken and was redesigned by them. Below you can see a collection of photos from the developer blog.
Bungie is also going to be adding a lot of new missions and activities for players to do while they exploring the Dreadnaught. There will be new patrols, missions, and public events and they are all coming to the Dreadnaught. However, there are some new mechanics according to Designer Ben Wommack.
“We’ve created a suite of new mechanics and woven them into the Patrol mode. Every week, every day even, it will draw you back to fight through to its depths for loot and glory. Expect to find new Bounties, Patrol Missions, and Public Events both large and small—some of which you can even instigate yourself, if you can discover how.”
Finally, Bungie also showed off one of the new bosses players will encounter in Patrol mode called the Darkblade. Below are some concept pictures of him.
