Destiny: Rise Of Iron Is Going For A Game Of Thrones Vibe

Destiny’s new expansion, Rise of Iron, isn’t very far off. One more trailer was released today by Activision — the trailer for Destiny: The Collection, which repackages everything produced so far under the Destiny umbrella. The game’s art director took this occasion to reveal where the inspiration for the expansion’s new world came from: this little obscure show on HBO.

The inspiration wasn’t only applied to environments and weapons, but the storyline. “In Game of Thrones, you have these big, long episodes with a lot of different characters,” art director Shiek Wang said to GameSpot. “But then [the show] leaves them for a while. Then they come back and dive super deep into, say, Arya. And you say, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s why she did this, and that’s why the writers chose to do this!’ That’s very much what we’re doing with Rise of Iron.”

Does this mean good characters are just going to unceremoniously die out of nowhere? Hopefully not.

The new Destiny: The Collection trailer has a Playstation logo on its thumbnail for a reason. Much of the collection’s extra content is exclusive to PS4 for the time being. There’s an exclusive quest, the Timeless Tereshkova ship, and the Icarus multiplayer map — all things that won’t be on XBox One. Some PS4 exclusive content from The Taken King is also included — The Echo Chamber strike, the Sector 618 multiplayer map, and the Jade Rabbit exotic.

Both Destiny: The Collection and Destiny: Rise of Iron will be released in a few days, September 20.
