Together with the release of the new trailer for the expansion and release date, Bungie released a post in bungie.net, announcing that there won't be a new raid in House of Wolves.
House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn't make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year. House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders.
This might come as a disappointment for some players since raids in the game are considered a big selling point for the game. This new end game activity sounds more like a "horde mode" of sorts but time will tell when they give more information about The Prison of Elders.
Another problem we are seeing is that some players opted for the season pass to ensure 2 raids in the future. With this announcement, the pack only adds 1 raid. No word if the new raid planned later this year is included in the season pass.
Do you think it's a good decision not providing a new raid for veteran players? Sound off on the comments below.
