Bungie broke the following fate 2 expansion and the final season in a special live stream today, plus some exciting news about a major new partnership with Epic Games.

looting season

The Season of Plunder launched today, following the Guardians as they hunt down the Kell of Darkness Eramis, who is scouring the galaxy in search of powerful relics.

“Eramis, the Kell of Darkness, has escaped her icy prison and is now assembling a team of outlaws to hunt down relics of dark power,” the developers said in a press release. “To thwart their plans, Guardians will recruit their own crews of outlaws and underdogs in all-new activities, power up with the Arc 3.0 subclass revamp, and claim treasure throughout the system.”

New activities will include:

  • Ketchcrash – Engage in ship-to-ship combat to stop Eramis and his pirate crew from wreaking havoc across the galaxy in this new 6-player matchmade offensive.
  • Expedition – Gather treasure maps, dig for treasure, and bring it back to your ship as you fend off enemy pirate crews in this three-player activity.
  • Pirate Hideouts – Battle your way through weekly quests and free the pirate lords from the powerful relics hidden in their hideouts.

“Arc 3.0: Harness the incredible power of the redesigned Arc 3.0 subclass. Guardians can now use Skins and Shards to customize their Arc playstyle and bring the thunder with powerful new abilities for each class,” said the press release about the upcoming season. ”
Gift of the Thunder Gods: New Guardians can quickly get hooked on the new Gift of the Thunder Gods, a limited-time free chest full of gear designed to help players level up quickly and prepare for adventure in Season of Plunder. Available to all players, the chest includes two exotic and ten legendary items and can be claimed in the HELM area of ​​the game.

light fall

The showcase focused heavily on Destiny 2: Lightfallwhich will be released on February 28. Players who reserve light fall you’ll earn rewards today, including the Quicksilver Storm Exotic Auto Rifle and more.

“In light fall Players will face off against Calus, the malevolent former Emperor of the Cabal, who has returned to our solar system along with the Pyramid fleet as a disciple of the Witness, the cosmic nemesis first introduced in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen”, said a press release. “Using the abilities granted by a new Strand subclass, Guardians will explore a new destination: the gleaming megacity of Neomuna on Neptune, which is under attack from Calus’ mysterious and deadly Shadow Legion.”

The developers broke down the new subclass item Strand and Neptune’s pristine capital city, Neomuna.

“Tap into the invisible threads that bind reality together, then grab on and take control,” the press release said. Harness the power of Strand in ways never seen before fate 2: From weaving powerful attacks to achieving awesome new mobility options (grab anyone?).”

That grappling mechanic mentioned makes sense, considering how the developers described Neomuna: a city with “soaring skyscrapers and neon-drenched streets where danger, beauty, and mystery abound around every corner.”

Epic Games Association

The new partnership with Epic Games will make Destiny 2 available on the Epic Game Store, as well as bring Destiny content to Fortnite and Fall Guys. There will also be Fortnite-inspired ornament sets releasing in Destiny 2: the Black Knight-themed Knightly Noire Titan ornament; Drift-themed Painted Kitsune Warlock Ornament; Oblivion themed eternal vengeance hunter ornament.

Players who claim Destiny 2 on the Epic Games Store before August 30 at noon CST will also receive the Destiny 2: 30th Anniversary Event Pack for free.

Fortnite Players will be able to customize their characters with new outfits representing iconic Destiny characters Commander Zavala, Ikora Rey, and Exo Stranger, along with new Destiny-themed cosmetics, including Back Blings, Pickaxes, and Sparrow Gliders. Destiny themed cosmetics will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop later today at 5pm Pacific Time,” the press release reads. “In addition, players will be able to experience a new Fortnite island inspired by the classic Destiny 2 Javelin-4 Crucible map, developed by the PWR creator team using the Fortnite creative toolset. More than just a remake, Island also features a “control mode” style of play, complete with unique weapons and ultimate abilities. Fortnite Island is live right now.”
