Since its release, Destiny is one of the rare looter shooter titles with a classic comeback story. Where a game like Anthem floundered upon release, Destiny improved on its faults and has since expanded into one of the premiere multiplay first-person shooter games of all time. With its sequel, Destiny 2, the franchise has expanded even more as it thrives within its golden age.
A brand new update for the sequel titled Beyond Light offers some exciting new stories, expansions, characters, and weapons. While fans have gotten a glimpse of the new things coming to the game, a brand new expansion has officially launched today that will continue to change the way players experience battles in the game.
Titled, Season of the Hunt, this new expansion features a new villain, the Hive God of War Xivu Arath. Teaming up with enemies from the past, the guardians are gearing up to take the fight to the Hive and the darkness. A new trailer released features a ton of new additions coming to the game, including new weapons and the return of the exotic hand cannon, Hawkmoon. The best part? Season of the Hunt is available now!
Since the game's update is still fairly new, now is another great opportunity to give Destiny a shot for anyone who has never played before. We would love to hear your thoughts on the new update and trailer in the comments below!
Entire planets have vanished. In the chaos that follows, Xivu Arath, the Hive God of War boldly moves to seize power. If left unchecked, she threatens a solar system already in turmoil. While investigating the growing threat, Osiris finds himself in need of help. Fortunately, a new – and yet familiar – ally known as the Crow joins you in the rescue... Hive shrines are appearing throughout the system. The Spider has felt the effect of this disturbance and wants to strike a bargain. Work with him and the Crow to build a device that will draw Xivu Arath’s lieutenants out of hiding. Once constructed, upgrade your Lure, snare your prey, and challenge the Hive god.
