Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

For years Savathûn’s schemes have unfolded, as she has assumed the identities of trusted allies and woven a web of lies that has spanned the galaxy. With the upcoming launch of Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, Guardians will learn the truth behind her infernal plans and face a challenge unlike any they’ve encountered before: enemies who are infused with the very Light that Guardians hold dear.

  • Weapons and Crafting: With the new weapon crafting feature, for the first time in Destiny’s history players will be able to forge weapons, complete with unique combinations of mods, shaders, and advanced stats. Guardians will also wield a new weapon type – the Glaive, Destiny’s introduction to a 1st-person melee weapon, which will be capable of powerful melee attacks, mid-range blasts, and shielding its wielder.
  • The Throne World: A twisted wonderland of corruption and splendor, Savathûn’s Throne World plays host to a fragile balance of terrifying power. Guardians will explore this brand-new destination and uncover the mysteries that reside in both the Darkness and the Light.
  • Lucent Brood: Aim down sights at enemies who are infused with Light – the same Light that powers Guardians – complete with sinister abilities at once familiar and terrifying.
    New Activities: The Witch Queen brings new challenges, including a new six-player matchmade activity, a new raid set in the heart of a sunken Pyramid ship, and more.

Destiny 2: Season of the Lost

The Destiny 2: Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack is available for pre-order now as part of The Witch Queen + Bungie 30th Anniversary Bundle.

After a prolonged absence, Mara Sov, Queen of the Awoken, has finally returned to the Dreaming City. And although her return is unexpected, her intention is clear: to seek an audience with Savathûn, the Witch Queen. So begins the next chapter in Destiny 2’s ongoing narrative, as forces converge, unlikely partnerships are formed, and mysteries deepen.

Season of the Lost begins today, offering players new adventures to take part in, new activities to try, and more.

  • Astral Alignment and Shattered Realm: Breathe life into slumbering Awoken technology and triumph over those who fear the Light in Astral Alignment, a six-player matchmade activity. Align the ley-line network and then Wayfind through the Shattered Realm in search of Mara Sov’s lost tech witches. Rescue them and use the power they bestow to see this mysterious landscape with new eyes – to reach the unreachable.
  • New Exotic Quest: A weapon of great power, locked away by Mara Sov for her brother, Uldren. The hands that hold Ager’s Scepter hold the keys to areas of the Shattered Realm previously barred. Untangle the layers of Awoken security and reach the Exotic weapon before it falls into the wrong hands.
  • Cross Play Is Here: Play with and against your fellow Guardians across the solar system, regardless of platform.
