It may not be as loved as the original, but Destiny 2 still has a massive draw – and it is set to continue to drag players in from around the globe this September when Forsaken, the first major expansion, releases.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on September 4th 2018, Destiny 2: Forsaken will whisk us off to two brand new destinations, equip us with new armour, throw more weapons than ever before our way and settle us down with the odd Super or two.
Forsaken takes players on an epic journey into the wild frontiers of our solar system where the lines between justice and revenge are blurred. Featuring an all-new competitive and collaborative endgame activity, Gambit, this new, hybrid 4v4 mode promises to merge both PvE and PvP experiences into one epic battle.
Delivering an entirely new way to play Destiny 2, it’ll offer something for all types of gamers to enjoy, appealing to those who thrive on the competitive challenge of PvP gameplay, while seamlessly blending the collaborative and unpredictable elements of PvE. And best of all? It’ll be playable at E3 next week!
“Since the launch of the Destiny franchise, we have always strived to create innovative experiences that will challenge and reward different kinds of players and ensure their beloved pastime is rewarding,” said Scott Taylor, Project Lead at Bungie. He added, “We can’t wait to share Forsaken’s new Gambit mode with our fans and offer them a new way to play that can be enjoyed competitively and cooperatively.”
“With an absorbing new story, created by High Moon Studios in partnership with Bungie, Destiny 2: Forsaken offers core players an epic experience, and offers a compelling entry point for new players,” Byron Beede, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Destiny at Activision. “I’m looking forward to watching players get their hands on some of the most requested features requested by the dedicated Destiny 2 community.”
Building on the most requested desire for a deep and rewarding endgame experience, Destiny 2: Forsaken features The Dreaming City destinatio – a place full of secrets to discover and bosses to defeat. The Dreaming City will also play host to a brand-new raid and is the first space designed from the ground up to support endgame content. But also becoming available to all Destiny 2 players around Forsaken’s launch will come highly anticipated changes and features such as a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements.
You’ll be able to get hold of Destiny 2: Forsaken from all the usual places with Annual Passes, and Digital Deluxe Editions featuring premium digital content. What’s more, at Destiny 2: Forsaken’s launch, the previously released Destiny 2 launch timed exclusives will be made available for all platforms.
