Today, Bungie took to Twitch and other sources around the interwebs to showcase the new endgame activity for Destiny, the Prison of Elders. The new mode allows for a few ways to play in terms of difficulty. During the livestream, a display of the new location, The Reef, gave us a look at four ways to get down and dirty with the activity all staged for different levels of challenge.

As guessed by numerous fans, Prison of Elders is a variation on the Horde mode first popularized years ago by Gears of War. In the storyline of House of Wolves, most of the Fallen soldiers that previously served the Queen of the Awoken have betrayed her, but one of the Fallen remained behind in the Reef and is still loyal. This Fallen character, named Variks, acts as a warden for the prison, and he engineers an opportunity for guardians to test their mettle within the dreaded detention facility.
Variks acts both as the central narrator for the Prison, but also as the vendor for rewards. Looking beyond the story setup, Prison of Elders is built as an end-game activity for three players. Each run at the Prison of Elders requires three players. A base level 28 version includes randomized rounds, bosses, and conditional effects, and this version allows for matchmaking, so you can play even without any of your friends online.
In any given week, the Prison of Elders also has three challenge versions available, and matchmaking is not provided. These more defined challenges pit you against particular enemies within the Prison, and have more preset conditions and rewards.

The Prison is a new game mode introduced in the newest Destiny expansion, House of Wolves. The gist: You make a team of three and make your way through five increasingly difficult rounds in an enclosed arena. They take on waves of Hive, Cabal, Fallen, or Vex enemies. Sometimes you have to go stand in various areas and defuse bombs, or take down a powerful target enemy before it can reach a series of checkpoints.
The Prison of Elders comes in four difficulty levels: Level 28, level 32, level 34, and level The challenge and corresponding time commitment increase significantly with each new level of difficulty. Level 32 can be tricky, but is doable. Level 34 is where things get hairy.

There are four pieces of downloadable content DLC that were released for Bungie ‘s first-person shooter video game Destiny. Each package of downloadable content added new player versus environment PvE missions and player versus player PvP modes, new locales to visit, and new items for the player to make use of. The third, The Taken King , was released in September and had the largest effect on the game, as it changed much of the core gameplay. In December , Destiny shifted to an event-based model, featuring more periodical limited-time events.

We first saw the types of Prison of Elders matches, A base game rated at level 28 that has matchmaking available while the harder level
Bungie gave players a look at Destiny ‘s new and evidently pretty tough Prison of Elders mode in a live stream earlier today. The short explanation is “yep, it’s definitely a three-player horde mode” – but with all the flourishes and quirks you expect from high-level Destiny play. The base-level Prison of Elders is rated for Level 28, and all of its challenges and modifiers are randomly selected. It’s matchmaking-ready and you’re free to play as many times a week as you want.
If you have a pre-made team, you can also take a crack at the three challenges set at level 32, level 34, and level Each one has its own name and themed modifiers and objectives, and new ones will rotate in weekly for each level slot. Once you’re in the match, you’ll apparently have to clear five rounds of three waves each – I say “apparently” because the Bungie streamers, who were doing one of the tougher curated challenges, never made it past the fourth round.
Each round will apply a new mechanical modifier: you could get something beneficial like increased damage for primary weapons, or something a bit more troublesome, like boosted shields yay that don’t ever recharge boo. You’ll also have to complete multiple critical objectives like defusing mines or taking out VIP targets. Thankfully, Prison of Elders warden Variks will occasionally offer gifts like heavy ammo or the explosive new Scorch Cannon to help you put down his unruly inmates.
Successfully clearing a match will reportedly reward players with a Treasure Key and access to a room filled with a random assortment of loot.
