It may not have gone down as well as the original title, but Bungie are pushing on regardless with Destiny 2 and now we see a whole new expansion arrive – that of Warmind.
Available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Destiny 2 Expansion II: Warmind ushers in Season Three of Destiny 2 with an update that brings a whole load of goodies, including new gear, deeper endgame content, activities, an all-new story, and an epic new boss battle that will challenge you in all new ways.
The expansion continues to build on the Destiny 2 universe bringing a fresh chapter in a story campaign. Players venture into a polar ice cap on Mars to explore epic adventures and activities. For those seeking an extremely challenging experience, Warmind includes an all-new endgame activity called Escalation Protocol. In this mode, players fight through increasingly difficult waves of Hive combatants. Included in the expansion and going live on Friday, 11th May is a new Raid Lair, a Destiny fan-favorite endgame activity, called “Spire of Stars,” that offers new areas to explore, a brand-new boss to conquer, and unique rewards to acquire.
Additionally, this also sees Season 3 gameplay updates begin including powerful upgrades to Exotic weapons, the introduction of Ranked Crucible play, new Crucible maps, Private Matches, additional Vault Space, and much more.
“We are excited about the future of the Destiny franchise. Together, as partners with Bungie, we have taken various steps to create a dialogue between those who make the game, and those who play.” said Byron Beede, executive vice president and general manager for Destiny at Activision. He added, “Warmind represents another step toward bringing the Destiny 2 hobby back to our dedicated players.”
“Since the launch of Destiny, we have played alongside and seen our amazingly passionate fans help evolve our universe. With Warmind, we want to show we are actively listening to the global community and that we are also committed to respecting players’ time in game. We know many of our fans have expressed a need for deeper endgame activities in Destiny 2, with more meaningful rewards, and we are excited to continue to improve that experience for them with this release,” said Sam Jones, project lead at Bungie.
“Vicarious Visions is proud to be a part of this franchise as fans, and now as developers,” said Jennifer Oneal, studio head for Vicarious Visions. She added, “We’ve learned a lot from Bungie while working together and we hope the players see the care and craft we’ve given Warmind.”
