Destiny's new Rise of Iron expansion is finally here, inviting Guardians back to Bungie's MMO/FPS hybrid for another, potentially final, adventure. After nearly a week with all of that new content, we feel like we're barely scratching the surface of what this new DLC has to offer. In other words, it's a great excuse for Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks to make their triumphant return or, if you're new to the series, it's a perfect time to jump in headfirst and gobble up all that Destiny has to offer. Here's our rundown of five things that make Rise of Iron worth visiting.

Destiny

The Plaguelands Are Massive And Diverse

Like with the previous expansion, The Taken King, Bungie has given us a new region to explore that has so much character and interconnecting systems that it practically becomes a living being. The Plaguelands are a section of the Earth map that has been ravaged by Siva, a sort of biological technology that warps the landscape, machinery and lifeforms it manages to infect.

Like The Dreadnaught before it, the Plaguelands are kind of like a big puzzle box. There's quite a bit of verticality to this new map, as well as diverse regions of fire, ice, and metal that make it a bit easier to remember what is where. Certain areas are locked behind doors that require keys you'll find on the map. There are plenty of new public events, some of which cannot be started without even more items you'll discover while blasting through the map. In other words, the Plaguelands reward exploration and offer all sorts of secrets that players are still trying to fully map out, which means there are loads of reasons to keep coming back for more. We've enjoyed our time in The Plaguelands so far and look forward to uncovering even more of its inner workings as we dig further in.
