UNITED STATES: Bungie first hinted at its upcoming Destiny 2: Lightfall expansion announcement more than two years ago. Since then, the players have taken control of the darkness, battled Savathûn and her army of the undead, and seen ‘The Witness’. With the February 28 release of Destiny 2: Lightfall, which has a new cyberpunk setting, new Strand subclasses, and much more, it’s time to stir things up once more.
Destiny 2: The epic tale of light vs darkness
The hub of Destiny 2: Lightfall is a novel, overtly cyberpunk new setting for Bungie’s franchise. The dystopian future location for Destiny 2’s ongoing storyline, which will once again feature Calus as the major antagonist, is a new hidden Neomuna metropolis on Neptune. Calus is on the side of the enigmatic humanoid antagonist The Witness in its conflict with the equally enigmatic ‘Traveler’.
The capital of Neptune, Neomuna, is illuminated with colourful neon signs that simulate the aurora borealis. It’s an underground, fully advanced city unlike anything else in the Destiny universe. In addition to the Shadow Legion Cabal group, gigantic Tormentors that can launch distant attacks, and new Cloud Striders that guard Neomuna, it also harbours these creatures.
With Lightfall, Bungie is introducing a brand-new subclass yet again. Strand is a green subclass that gives Destiny 2 guardians an incredible boost beyond anything we’ve ever seen. If you thought Stasis was strong, Strand is much more so because of her skills, which are more geared toward supporting with traversal and movement.
Furthermore, Bungie greatly enhances novice and veteran players’ access to Destiny 2: Lightfall. In Destiny 2, a brand-new system called Guardian rankings allows players to find seasoned players.
Bungie will also add a built-in searching for group (LFG) system in 2023 to assist users in forming groups for activities. Furthermore, there is a new commendation system where players can express gratitude for one another.
Other enhancements to the quality of life include a mod manager and in-game loadouts. Players of Destiny 2 have been forced to use third-party, something in the game which will be a welcome addition since people have been using programs like DIM for years.
