For the quest, see Rise of Iron (Quest).

The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.
― Official description[1]

Rise of Iron is a downloadable content (DLC) expansion pack for Destiny.[2] It became available at 2 AM (Pacific Time Zone)[3] on September 20, 2016 for $29.99 USD.[2] It is the first Destiny DLC not available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.[2]

Players who pre-order Rise of Iron were given access to two exclusive items: the Iron Gjallarhorn[2] and the Iron Gjallarwing.[4] These items can be obtained from quests.[2] Players who did not pre-order Rise of Iron can still obtain the non-exclusive Gjallarhorn and Gjallarwing.


About a hundred years ago, the Iron Lords sacrificed themselves to contain SIVA, a technological plague.[2] The Fallen House of Devils has unearthed the plague and used it to augment themselves and become more powerful.[1][2] Lord Saladin rallies the Guardians to fight against and contain the re-emerged threat and become the next generation of Iron Lords.[2]

An explanation of how progress between current-gen and last-gen consoles will separate.

At the launch of Destiny, players were able to share progression between consoles in the same family (PlayStation 3 with PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 with Xbox One). Beginning in August 2016, progression in previous-generation consoles occurs separately from current-generation consoles.[5]
