Bungie has released a teaser for Destiny's second expansion just ahead of its official reveal tomorrow morning.
The expansion, House of Wolves, introduces at least one new social area (the Queen's Bay); new vendors; new weapons, armour, and gear; new story missions; three new competitive multiplayer maps; and a new cooperative Strike.
In the new footage are glimpses of what look like upgrades for existing Raid weapons and armour, along with a shot confirming that the Light level cap will be raised to at least 34.
The game's first expansion, The Dark Below, increased the limit from 30 to 32.
Tomorrow's livestream will be hosted by Bungie community manager Deej on the studio's Twitch channel. He’ll be joined by creative director Christopher Barrett and community member Gothalion.
The Metal Gear Online portion of Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain will support up to 16 players on new-gen and PC, and up to 12 players on last-gen consoles.

Star Wars: Battlefront will be more than just be a mash-up of Battlefield and Star Wars, says DICE.
“It's important to us that people feel like we are bringing them a fresh experience, and that they don’t immediately feel like ‘Oh, they have just taken Battlefield and put a Star Wars game on it’,” DICE senior producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir told Xbox Wire.
“We were fans of Battlefront, and we're incredibly happy as a studio to bring Battlefront to a new generation of fans.

When it released in 2010, Remedy's episodic thriller Alan Wake found a modest but ardent following.
When the Xbox 360 game was released it went up against Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, and subsequently only sold 4.5 million copies, not enough for publisher Microsoft to consider financing a sequel, which it turns out Remedy had already outlined and prototyped.
In an unusual turn of events, Remedy has shared that prototype with Polygon.

Valve has restricted the functionality of Steam accounts with no purchase history in a bid to combat spam and phishing on the platform.
Steam users must now spend the equivalent of US$5 before they can perform actions such as sending friend invites, opening group chat, and more.
