fate 2: LightfallThe penultimate expansion of the saga of destiny, Light and Darkness, will be revealed on August 23. Bungie announced Thursday. For many fans, this reveal date will come as a surprise, coming a full season earlier than the last two years.
In 2020, Bungie revealed beyond the light It expanded on the same day it launched Arrival Season – the season that led directly to beyond the light After several months. Similarly, the studio revealed charming queen in the summer of 2022 along with the lost season. And while Lost Season lasted an unprecedented six months, it was the only season between the reveal event and the new expansion.
This year’s exhibition is likely to reveal Fate 2Season 18 (Bungie doesn’t usually reveal its seasons in advance anymore, Season 18 will also start August 23) plus Lightfall. This is unique, as we know there will be Season 19 coming later this year (most likely at the end of November, based on last season’s lengths) and that Lightfall It won’t be released until Season 20.
This timing is important mostly for narrative reasons. Marketing for Destiny’s next big expansion usually spoils the penultimate season somewhat. In Lost Season, for example, there was no mystery about it if Savathon will escape from her cocoon and rise to the status of a witch queen. Instead, lost season was everything How Savathon will break her bond. With the start of Bungie Lightfall The marketing cycle for a full season early on (although in the real world the schedule is the same), it means we’ll have two seasons of clear reinforcement for the new expansion.
All of this is especially interesting when you consider what’s likely to come Fate 2Expansion of 2023. Building on a tease at the end charming queenIt seems that a great bad fate – The Witness – will personally invade our solar system Lightfall. And if the name indicates any kind of indication, then things will not go well for our heroes.
In terms of features, players should expect a new destination to adventure in LightfallAnd it’s very likely (based on the game’s director’s hints last year) that there will be a new Darkness subclass item that matches Stasis. As usual, new alien items, strikes, and raids are also coming with the expansion. Outside of those expected additions, however, Lightfall It’s a complete mystery, and curious guardians will need to set the event themselves on August 23rd.
