Destiny 2's Next Expansion Is Changing A Lot

  • The next two weeks could make or break the 'Destiny' franchise

We'll have a more detailed analysis of the Destiny 2: Forsaken reveal later today, and for now you can check out some new screens below.

"Destiny 2's" all-new game mode is called Gambit, and it combines a mix of team-based PvP combat and non-player alien combatants.

Forsaken arrives September 4. New bow and arrow weapon type! Upon arrival, you soon discover the most-wanted criminals in the Prison of Elders have organized an escape.

Forsaken, which will retail for $40 versus the usual $19.99 stapled onto Destiny 2's expansions, will pack in two brand new destinations: The Tangled Shore and The Dreaming City. New rules around weapons, armor, and character classes. Destiny 2 was easier to grasp for new players, but it lacked the same habit-forming quality of the original. The new actual raid (not a "raid lair!") is called the Dreaming City, and will contain a completely new destination (the Awoken homeland) with "more bosses than any raid before", and some sort of evolving level of content (it seems like incremental secrets are in). While it wasn't made implicitly clear, it does appear that the Scorn are an all-new enemy race/faction to fight, changing our expectations of how we've come to do battle in Destiny 2. Rumble's also coming back for good.

The return to Destiny 1-style random rolls and mods is a major change aimed at giving players a reason to stick with the game over the long term-a long-overdue feature aimed square at die-hard grinders.


Forsaken gives players more choices when equipping weapons.

Unlike The Taken King, Forsaken is not adding new subclasses, but current ones will get new super moves. Two-handed hammers for Titans, electric teleportation for Warlocks, and. Once 75 of them are banked, a "Primeval" can be summoned on the enemy side, blocking access to the bank until it's destroyed. In the Statement, Bungie says that they want to become an "entertainment company".

New raids, new collections - new incentives to play.

The next expansion to Destiny 2 is Forsaken, out September 4 and bringing a bunch of stuff to Bungie's space shooter, including a wild new mode and an overhaul of how weapons work.
