Last night Bungie revealed the next expansion for Destiny 2, which is set to be released later this year on 22 September. Called Beyond Light it brings with it some notable changes and updates to the multiplayer shooter.
Beyond Light will see the Guardians go to an icy little moon of Jupiter called Europa and with this adventure comes a completely new subclass, something not introduced since The Taken King for Destiny 1. This subclass will be Stasis which give you the ability to manipulate time and will be integrated into enemy abilities as well as weapons. We also finally see the return of the Stranger, which hasn’t been seen since Destiny 1 launched back in 214.
“The splintered houses of the Fallen have rallied and built their new empire on the icy moon of Europa. Brave the unrelenting glacial frontier, infiltrate the Golden Age Braytech facility, and uncover the secrets that lie deep under the ancient ice.”
Bungie also revealed the latest Season for Destiny 2 titled Season of Arrival and it kicked off last night and will run until the launch of Beyond Light. It is during this time Guardians will be able to prepare for the new expansion, as well as learn more about the mysterious Pyramid Ships we saw back when Destiny 2 first launched. With it comes new gear, new weapons as well a new Public Event called The Prophecy, which will be available to all Destiny 2 players.
Finally, Bungie teased what we can expect for Destiny 2 in 2021 with the reveal of The Witch Queen (working title). It really doesn’t say much but does tease the possibility of older Destiny 1 content making an entrance to Destiny 2.
