Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion pack revealed

Bungie, the developer of the Halo and Destiny series, signed a 100 million dollar partnership with NetEase Games a few days ago. We will hear more news about the game and its upcoming content at E3, and the expansion Forsaken will take Guardians to the Reef on September 4.

With Destiny 2's one year anniversary coming up in September, Bungie has detailed the game's Year 2 plans which include a major expansion titled Forsaken.

Bungie went on to add some further details in their full reveal live stream, and has indicated that the conversation will continue with Destiny 2 players throughout the summer. It started by showing a 10-minute ViDoc on the expansion which detailed numerous upcoming changes to Destiny 2. This does make the price for each expansion cheaper than before at just under $12 each, however. Cade has been throwing risky criminals into the Prison of Elders. One of the new locations, The Dreaming City, was detailed a little, and it's going to include a new raid. From now on, players will decide what slot they will want to equip their weapons into.

An all new weapon system will also shift how you play Destiny 2, allowing players to customize and create their own loadouts. A first-of-its kind for Destiny, Gambit is a new, hybrid 4v4 mode that merges both PvE and PvP experiences into an epic battle. Bows are also in, and each class seems to be getting significant reworks - "anime" style Void Warlock teleports were highlighted as the standout adjustment. It will culminate in a raid called the Dreaming City that Bungie describes as "like the Vault of Glass and Dreadnaught had a baby". It's a destination that was referred to as the homeland of the Awoken. Bungie say it will have "More bosses than we've ever had before".

A lot was revealed on stream, but of great interest was a new mix of PvP and PvE called Gambit Mode. On July 17, you'll be able to take part in the "Solstice of Heroes" seasonal event. The studio's David "Deej" Dague wasn't clear about the differences, but hinted that they won't be as story-heavy as previous expansions. It announced the introduction of an Annual Pass for the game. Since then, Bungie has released has released roadmaps and content updates, notably the second expansion - Warmind - which came out in May.

In addition to all of this new content, it looks like Bungie is taking some fan criticisms to heart, and will be including bringing back features from the original Destiny including randomly generated weapons, and power levels making a difference in the Iron Banner and Trials of the Nine.
