Destiny 2: Beyond the Light coming September 22nd!
Bungie announces the future of Destiny 2, starting with the next expansion Beyond the Light launching on September 22nd 2020. Also reveals future plans for the game, no Destiny 3 on the cards as yet.
"Destiny 2: Beyond the Light" is the name of the next big add-on for Destiny 2, which is set to be released for PC gamers as part of the Autumn Season, which begins September 22nd 2020. This time, developer Bungie has chosen Jupiter's moon Europa as the destination. As Europa is rather light shy and therefore far away from the Sun, Guardians should dress warmly according to the circumstances. It's going to get frosty in Destiny 2!
On the surface of Europa, a new power has apparently emerged in the universe of Destiny 2, or as Bungie calls it: A dark empire has risen from the old pyramid. The pyramid ships' long journey seems to be reaching its peak. That's why the season is called the "Season of Arrival." As is often the case with darkness, Guardians are not only supposed to push it back (destroy it), but will also be able to wield the power and use it in the future of Destiny 2.
The new threat will also bring another, previously unknown force to the scene, "Stasis". With this new elemental force, Guardians will dominate the battlefields in the upcoming season (and probably beyond). According to Bungie, not all Guardians handle the Force in the same way, and additional specializations can be anticipated. Bungie plans to release more information on Stasis this Summer.
Destiny 2: Beyond the Light Features
GO BEYOND THE LIGHT
A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid ship above Europa's frozen frontier, and a dark empire has risen beneath, united under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis. Join your fellow Guardians and bring down the empire at any cost – even if it means wielding the Darkness itself.
The splintered houses of the Fallen have rallied and built their new empire on the icy moon of Europa. Brave the unrelenting glacial frontier, infiltrate the Golden Age Braytech facility, and uncover the secrets that lie deep under the ancient ice.
WIELD THE DARKNESS
As the new threat emerges, so too does a mysterious new power – Stasis.
Rooted in Darkness, Guardians will wield this new elemental power alongside Arc, Solar, and Void, summoning epic supers to dominate the battlefield. Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters each use Stasis in a different way, from slowing down foes with Stasis fields to encasing and shattering enemies with destructive might.
There are those who believe Europa is nothing more than a frozen Golden Age graveyard, its treasures long ago swallowed by ice and darkness. You know better. Beneath the ruins lie countless relics, an arsenal of weapons, and more. Claim this cutting-edge tech from the clutches of time and dare to tame the wasteland.
DEEP STONE CRYPT
Below frozen tundra of Europa lies the Deep Stone Crypt. For decades it has remained dormant. Your fireteam cautiously approaches, weapons raised, and the final plan is set in motion.
Bungie's plans for Destiny 2 are so far-reaching they don't expect to launch any Destiny 3 in the long run. The roadmap even provides regular content updates for Destiny 2 until the year 2022. In the fall of 2020, the developers will launch the next expansion "Destiny 2: Beyond the Light", followed by "Destiny 2: The Witch Queen" in 2021, and "Destiny 2: Lightfall" in 2022.
Destiny 2: Beyond the Light will be released on September 22nd for PC and the expansion will be available for pre-order at Gamesplanet soon.
