On Tuesday morning, Bungie launched its new “ViDoc,” a 15 minute video previewing a bunch of latest content material coming quickly to Future 2. The studio spoke in regards to the season launching alongside Future 2: Past Gentle, referred to as Season of the Hunt. In a separate weblog put up, the studio revealed the roadmap for the following few months in Future 2.
In Season of the Hunt, gamers will work alongside Osiris and Uldren Sov — now going by The Crow — to cease Xivu Arath from amassing a military of Darkness. Gamers have by no means actually encountered Oryx’s second sister, Xivu Arath, in-game earlier than, so this needs to be a very new story for gamers.
This would be the first time gamers have encountered Uldren since his resurrection as a Guardian again in Future 2: Forsaken. Evidently his resurrection is unknown within the Guardian neighborhood, as Ghost expresses some shock at Uldren’s look within the trailer. In accordance with senior design lead Lars Bakken, Uldren can be unaware of his actions in Future 2: Forsaken — which means he has no concept he’s answerable for the loss of life of Cayde-6 and opening of the Dreaming Metropolis. His look right here additionally debunks the speculation that he’s really Shaw Han, the brand new vendor within the Cosmodrome.
Alongside the brand new season story, gamers will tackle a brand new exercise: Wrathborn Hunts. Whereas it’s not precisely clear what this occasion entails, we do know it is going to stick round after Season of the Hunt and till The Witch Queen enlargement launches in 2021. Not like seasonal actions in 12 months 3, gamers can make amends for Season of the Hunt content material effectively into 2021.
In accordance with the roadmap, the Season of the Hunt actions received’t launch till every week after Past Gentle on Nov. 10. On Nov. 17, gamers can staff up with Uldren and Osiris to thwart Xivu Arath’s scheme. When Past Gentle initially launches, gamers can bounce to Europa, begin the brand new season cross, play the Glassway Strike, and expertise Empire Hunt. It’s not clear if Empire Hunt is the identify of the Past Gentle marketing campaign or a brand new exercise on Europa.
Trials of Osiris will provide new Adept weapons on Nov. 13, the Friday of Past Gentle. Every week later, gamers can dive into the Deep Stone Crypt raid for the primary time. We’re presently uncertain if the raid is definitely referred to as “Deep Stone Crypt,” or if it is going to have a distinct identify at launch.
The season’s first Iron Banner will begin Dec. 8 — launching alongside the next-gen console model of Future 2. The Christmas vacation occasion, the Dawning, will run from Dec. 15 to Jan. 5 of subsequent yr. The calendar additionally clearly labels what’s Past Gentle particular and what’s free for all gamers.
One part of the roadmap simply says “uncover Europa’s Secrets and techniques from Nov. 10 to Jan. 1.” This appears to recommend gamers can have numerous Unique quests and secret missions in that timeframe.
The calendar additionally reveals the identify of all of the Exotics coming within the subsequent few months:
- No Time to Clarify
- Salvation’s Grip
- The Lament
- Icefall Mantle
- Masks of Bakris
- Athyrs’s Embrace
- Daybreak Refrain
- Necrotic Grip
- Treasured Scars
Because of a trailer from just a few weeks in the past, we’ve a good suggestion of what most of those weapons and armor items do. We’re nonetheless undecided what Hawkmoon will appear like in Future 2, though we all know it’ll be barely totally different than it was within the unique Future. And that is the primary official phrase on regardless of the Duality Unique is.
Based mostly on the roadmap, it appears Future 2 gamers can have quite a bit to do beginning Nov. 10 and operating by the start of 2021.
