Six of us went down into the pit. Only one crawled out. This is the opening cinematic for Destiny's upcoming DLC 'Dark Below' releasing next month.

"Beneath the surface of the Moon, a long-forgotten enemy wakes. Survive the Hellmouth, and stop a dark army from invading Earth."

The poster, MrJester6598, wrote in the description:

"This is the opening cinematic for the Dark Below DLC out next month. I can not explain how to get access to this video on the game as it was due to an error that i was able to see this."

Deep within the endless channels of the Black Garden on Mars, an ancient temple has been recently claimed by the Crucible. Master the ins and outs of ancient Vex architecture, work as a team to lock down three primary lanes, or work alone to control the flow of combat and guarantee your victory.


This recently repowered interplanetary defense array on Earth bears the scars of our endless battle with the Hive. Master multiple engagement distances on foot and in vehicles. Balance the risk and reward of multiple routes. Claim powerful vehicles to clear a path and deny the enemy control of the battlefield. Crush your opposition.

The Cauldron

An abandoned Hive ritual site thought to be a site of dark sacrifice, The Cauldron has now been claimed by the Crucible, where brave Guardians now wage war. The central chamber is a choke point for intense, close range combat. Watch for the signs of closing opposition, keep your head on a swivel, and show no mercy.

In addition to new weapons, The Dark Below contains armor that can boost a Guardian's Light level to 32. A player's Guardians will also gain five additional bounty slots.

Another plus, is that when The Dark Below is released, Destiny will be updated to give all players access to new weapons and armor, new Daily Bounties, and five additional Bounty slots, even if they do not purchase the expansion.

New Coop adventure

Omnigul, the vile "Will of Crota," grows the Hive horde to prepare the Earth for Crota's reign.

Enter the Jovian Complex with a Fireteam of Guardians.
Burn Omnigul out of her nest with your Light. Destroy her, and purge her vile spawn from the Earth.
