‘Destiny: The Taken King’ Teases Court Of Oryx, New Raid Reveal

The final Destiny: The Taken King Twitch livestream is scheduled for Wednesday, September 2. Bungie released the teaser for the event today, which gives PlayStation and Xbox players a peek into the Court of Oryx and possibly the opening of the King’s Fall raid.

The final Bungie livestream for Destiny: The Taken King will start Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. Those interested in viewing should tune into the Bungie’s Twitch channel during that time. Community Manager David “Deej” Dague will host with Designer Ben Wommack, community guest Laced Up Lauren, and special closing guest Luke Smith all in attendance.

Bungie covered changes to the Strikes plus the doubling of vault space, new leveling system, weapon infusion, and more in the previous two Destiny: The Taken King livestreams. This final livestream is going to be about The Taken King endgame raid, along with Public Events.

“What mysteries lie in wait within the cavernous hull of the Dreadnaught? How can Guardians plunder the treasures secreted away in its hideous labyrinth? Come along with us on a Patrol of the newest destination in your Director. Learn how Guardians can instigate Public Events. Behold the challenges and the rewards that await you on board the capital ship commanded by Oryx.”

The teaser trailer shows six Guardians headed into the Court of Oryx. This is known to be the starting point for the King’s Fall raid, and a public space inside the Dreadnaught where players can encounter each other, similar to Vault of Glass.

These six players are not in the same fireteam though, so they appear to be taking on a public event titled, “Kill Krughor, Alzok Dal, Gornuk Dal, and Zyrok Dal.” You can see Krughor as the Ogre the players are fighting. The other three are not pictured.

Later, the action turns to what may be one of the opening sequences for the King’s Fall raid. You can see a room of Hive spawning out of a pool around a glowing statue of Oryx. This is topped off with a sword-wielding Warlock flashing some new moves.

Destiny: The Taken King (PlayStation, Xbox)

As previously covered for the Inquisitr, the King’s Fall raid will not be available when The Taken King launches on September 15. Bungie is giving Destiny players time to gear up with the new weapons and armor that will bring them up to level 40 and the recommended light level. The developer assures that the delay is not due to the raid being incomplete, as it has already been finished off.

The Destiny 2.0 update will launch September 8 for PlayStation and Xbox platforms. This is a mandatory update that weighs in at 20 GB for current-gen consoles, and 10 GB for last-gen consoles. This essentially gives everyone all of The Taken King content, whether they’ve purchased it or not, to ensure players stay on the same codebase.
