Bungie has been discussing how Destiny’s upcoming expansions will work, describing how they will thread into the full game. The first of these expansions, The Dark Below, launches in December.
Speaking to Joystiq, Bungie’s Director of Production Jonty Barnes said, "The Dark Below is actually a really interesting expansion; it's got its own story. We call it an expansion because it has one of all the activity types from Destiny, so it's story, strike and beyond – and competitive and cooperative experiences in there. As well as new gear, new armor, new weapons and everything else.
“Some of that attaches to existing places that you're familiar to, so you might find that as you're going through new areas, that you actually collide with players who are just playing the existing Destiny content. You'll have those collisions. We always want to create spaces where people can get together and cooperate, and we feel like that is a big innovation in Destiny.”
Destiny hits on September 9th.
