/// Bungie Adding Hard Mode to Crota’s End in Destiny!
Destiny will soon get an update that will add a hard mode to Crota’s End, Bungie revealed in its weekly blog post.
“If you’ve experienced Hard Mode in Vault of Glass, you have some clues for how we can scale up a Raid. Prepare to take better care of your teammates. You’ll have fewer options for healing yourself, and each other. The enemies you’re about to face are stronger and more prone to temper tantrums.”
