Bungie has posted a new update with a bunch of news about the Crota raid!
First off, Hard mode is ready! Yes you read that right. Coming Wednesday, January 21st - 10AM PST Bungie will release Level 33 Hard Crota!
New weapons can be obtained within the new difficulty including the following:
Fang of ir Yut
Word of Crota
DeeJ said:Don’t forget that Hard Mode is also the only place to obtain “Crux of Crota,” the final piece needed to upgrade the Eidolon Ally (the gun formerly known as Husk of the Pit) to its full, Necrochasmic glory.
Want a new ship? Hard mode can land you one:
Bane of the Dark Gods
The last item includes an Exclusive Hard Mode shader called the Glowhoo. No picture is shown as to what this shader is supposed to look like.
On Tuesday, January 20th Bungie will publish the patch notes for update 1.1.04.
And to wrap it up, Wednesday, January 21st:
Follow us on Twitter. There will be a manual start for Hard Mode. I’ll swing from vine to vine in our studio and give you a glimpse at what it’s like when we push big red buttons. Our target will be 10AM Pacific (West Coast). Just like you, we hit most of what we shoot for. Nevertheless, stay tuned.
