Destiny 2’s Forsaken expansion will launch September 4
We’re updating below the fold!Destiny 2, you’re going to want to catch Bungie’s reveal livestream today. The studio has promised it’ll dish on the game’s second year; we’re already expecting a return to The Reef in the fall expansion, now titled Forsaken. The roadmap suggests big changes for gear collections, weapons, and gameplay modes too. The stream may even give more clues about Bungie’s new NetEase partnership, which the studio previously said will help it “explore new directions” – like maybe mobile? – and “empower [it] to build new worlds and invite players, new and old, to join [it] there.” The whole event kicks off at noon EDT, and you can watch it alongside us right here.
Tomorrow, the second year of Destiny 2 will be revealed.

“Forsaken takes players on an epic journey into the wild frontiers of our solar system where the lines between justice and revenge are blurred. Forsaken also features an all-new competitive and collaborative endgame activity, called Gambit. 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. This entirely new way to play Destiny 2 offers something for all types of gamers to enjoy, appealing to those who thrive on the competitive challenge of PvP gameplay, while seamlessly blending the collaborative and unpredictable elements of PvE. This new mode will be playable at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) held from June 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.[…]
“Following years of strife, what remains of the Reef has fallen to lawlessness. Players investigate the recent unrest and will explore new regions, awaken new powers, and earn powerful weapons. Building on the most requested desire for a deep and rewarding endgame experience, Destiny 2: Forsaken features The Dreaming City destination. Full of secrets to discover and bosses to defeat, this destination also houses the brand-new raid and is the first space designed from the ground up to support endgame content. Available to all Destiny 2 players around Forsaken’s launch comes highly anticipated changes and features such as a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements.”
