New arc in the story
On June 9, 2020, Bungie revealed the future of Destiny by announcing Destiny 2: Beyond Light. Destiny is known for having a confusing story and with the launch of the Beyond Light new and returning players will send Guardians to Europa to fight Eramis; a fallen warrior who wants revenge against the Traveler first for abandoning her people and scattering the fallen houses. Guardians will also see a face they haven’t seen in a long time; the Stranger.
Destiny 2 news of the launch was originally scheduled in September but has now been shifted to November 10 due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Beyond Light will introduce a new element type born in darkness Stasis. Bungie also revealed that the next two major expansions coming in 2021 and 2022; The Witch Queen and Lightfall. After discussing the upcoming quality of Light improvements and the next generation council support, Bungie talked about the Destiny content vault.
Changes beyond fans’ disappointments
According to Video Game Journalist and staff member at Bungie, Luke Smith, Destiny is becoming hard to manage, and to help with that they will be taking all the less played content and archiving it. But occasionally players will see content return temporarily. On the bright side content from the original Destiny will make its way to Destiny 2, so Guardians will be able to play some classic content like Cosmodrome and Vault of Glass.
The Beyond Light expansion will give players more freedom to customize their Guardians that were missing in Destiny 1. Smith shared:
“What we’re trying to do with Stasis and wielding the Darkness is to show you as a player more freedom. There’s also a meta-statement that we’re making about the difference in the powers between light and dark, but there’s this other part, which is the fantasy of, ‘This is my Guardian, there are many like it, but this one is mine’… I think we’re trying to get a little bit back to the feeling of Destiny 1, but updated to how we’re thinking and some of the systems that we’re using today in Destiny 2.”
The reveal ended with the preview of the current content season in Destiny 2; the season of arrivals. Players can expect a new exotic quest such as Luna’s Howl quest steps in the new dungeon and story that will prepare them for what’s to come in the new expansion.
Beyond Light will launch for current-gen systems and Xbox Series X/S, with the PlayStation 5 version following later in the month of November.
