Bungie would announce the plans for the second year for Destiny 2 tonight and they have done that via a livestream. The second year will start on the 4th of September with the release of the next major expansion for Destiny 2, called ‘Forsaken’.
expansion for Destiny 2
In Forsaken you will visit two ‘new’ destinations. The first is the Reef, where prisoners in The Prison or Elsewhere plan an escape. This will have to stop you and the one who escapes you must chase you.
The other location is ‘Tangled Shore’, an area where different asteroids are located and where the Scorne moves around freely. Furthermore, the expansion brings several new weapons, equipment and Supers.
With regard to endgame content, players may expect a new activity called Gambit. In Gambit PvP and PvE are merged in which teams compete against enemies in separate arenas and collect so-called motes. If enough are collected, the boss will be released. However, it is also possible to enter the arena of another team and disrupt their battle.
Forsaken also has a new Raid that takes place in Dreaming City, the homeland of the Awoken. Bungie did not give much details about this, except that this Raid will contain more bosses than ever.
The release of Forsaken is also the kick-off of a new ‘Annual Pass’ and that is another approach to content delivery. Bungie promises to offer more endgame challenges, more items to collect, more activities, new Triumph Records and more lore.
After years of struggle, the Reef has fallen into an area of total anarchy. Players explore the recent turmoil, explore new regions, discover new powers and earn powerful weapons. Building on the most demanded need for a meaningful and rewarding engame experience, Destiny 2 offers the Dreaming City. Full of secrets to discover and bosses to beat, this destination also offers a completely new raid, initially designed to support the endgame content. Around the launch of Forsaken also long awaited changes and functions are introduced for all players of Destiny 2, such as a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system and countless other improvements that make the game even more fun.
Op July 17, Destiny 2 players can expect update 1.2.3 and that update brings the 6v6 Quickplay as a permanent mode to the game. Finally, Bungie released an updated version of the roadmap, see below.
