Bungie is close to releasing Destiny 2’s next expansion, Destiny 2 Shadowkeep. Shadowkeep will be returning Guardians to Earth’s moon after a long absence to deal with a new threat that has been unleashed by the Hive, and a new developer insight video from Bungie was posted yesterday to show changes.
Since players have been absent from the Moon for around two years now, many things have changed in our absence. To begin with, the House of Dusk has bene heavily active on the move. House banners hang everywhere over areas that Guardians had previously seen as clean but abandoned.
The Fallen Ketch from the Shadow Thief strike, where players fought the Fallen thief Taniks, the Scarred in Destiny’s expansions House of Wolves and Rise of Iron, has also been taken over by the House of Dusk, having crashed on the surface of the moon and converted into a base.
There are also now Lost Sectors on the moon, allowing Guardians to explore the depths of the moon and possibly be able to realize what happened to humans that were on the moon when the Collapse hit humanity and killed its Golden Age.
However, the greatest change to the moon in Destiny 2 Shadowkeep is the titular location, a Hive castle filled with all sorts of horrors that we have yet to discover. We’ll be assisted by Eris Morn as we go into that castle, and who knows what sorts of monstrosities the Hive have been making inside.
You can catch the full video by following this link, and then catch Destiny 2 Shadowkeep when it comes out on September 17. Along with that, Destiny 2 will be going free-to-play with Destiny 2: New Light, which will give every player all of the content leading up to Forsaken. However, you’ll still need the Annual Passes to access the rest of the game and subsequent expansions will still need to be paid for.
Once again, Destiny 2 Shadowkeep comes out September 17.
