New Bungie Game on the Way

The next two weeks could make or break the 'Destiny' franchise

One of the big reveals made by Bungie today was on the launch of a new Destiny Annual Pass.

Destiny 2 is receiving a bow and arrow with the release of the Forsaken expansion.

Bungie has much riding on Destiny 2's first big yearly expansion, dubbed Forsaken, due out in September.

Anyway, Bungie is teaming up with High Moon Studios for Destiny 2: Forsaken which will expand the Destiny 2 experience with a new story, a pair of new destinations and of course, new weapons, gear and gameplay modes including Gambit, a hybrid PvP/PvE mode. Things might just be looking up for Destiny 2 fans.

The story of Forsaken will take place in the Reef which hasn't been explored since the original Destiny's House of Wolves expansion. Upon arrival, you soon discover the most-wanted criminals in the Prison of Elders have organized an escape. The Dreaming City is a lovely location that is the home of the Awoken, a place that hides dark secrets and the expansions endgame activities like the new Raid. "Disrupt the other team by sending a combatant blocker or invading directly with one of your own players". While Bungie did take the time to touch on the Annual Pass and what it contains, it does appear to be a new monetization strategy for Destiny 2. New tabs are being added to the player inventory where players will be able to see all the weapons, armor, and vanity items they have collected along with hints toward the ones they haven't.

A lot was revealed on stream, but of great interest was a new mix of PvP and PvE called Gambit Mode. Developers said that it will feature more bosses than all of the other raids. Another location users can visit is the Tangled Shore, which is a collection of asteroids strung together by cables and bridges.

As with most raids before their reveal, it's not yet clear how the Dreaming City will interweave with the rest of Forsaken's story. It named all three of the seasons in the live stream, Black Armory for winter 2018, Joker's Wild for spring 2019, and Penumbra for summer 2019.

Above: Destiny 2 Annual Pass. This is insane news as the game has primarily only catered to guns, explosive projectiles, and other firearms. You get to play how you want, whether it's Destiny 1's weapon slot system, Destiny 2's, or even insane new loadouts like triple-shotguns.

Bottom line: Forsaken is the third expansion for Destiny 2, following the release of Curse of Osiris in December 2017 and last month's Warmind.
