This evening Bungie confirmed that the next chapter in the ongoing story of Destiny 2 - Forsaken - is going to be released on September 4 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The expansion is going to bring two new destinations to the game, plus the usual new batch of weapons, gear, and abilities.
Players will be heading back to the Reef which apparently has "fallen to lawlessness". Guardians are then tasked with investigating the situation, and along the way they'll "explore new regions, awaken new powers, and earn powerful weapons." One of the new locations, The Dreaming City, was detailed a little, and it's going to include a new raid. So far, so Destiny.
More interestingly Bungie also detailed some new endgame content, called Gambit, which blends PvE and PvP action into some sort of chaotic battle. The studio is planning on showing off the new mode at E3 next week so stay tuned for more on that soon.
Also of note is the fact that the story part of the expansion was made by High Moon Studios in partnership with Bungie, and not the other way around. The expansion will also include a few extra changes, including "a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements."
There are going to be a couple of editions (including Destiny 2: Forsaken + Annual Pass, the Destiny 2: Forsaken - Digital Deluxe Edition). As per usual, PlayStation players get some extra content, including a new strike, gear sets, a ship, and a solitary exotic weapon, although the last batch of exclusives will now come online on PC and Xbox One.
