Destiny 2's Forsaken Expansion Sounds Promising

Bungie has revealed the next big expansion to Destiny 2. It's called Forsaken and it adds a good chunk of new content, plus changes to endgame and certain features thanks to community feedback.

In its first year since release, Destiny 2 had it rough thanks to controversial elements and how the endgame worked in the sequel, but the incoming changes mentioned in the trailer above looks promising as the shooter enters its second year. 

Destiny 2's Forsaken will feature two new locations to explore, a bunch of new subclasses to unlock, a brand new storyline that involves Cayde 6, a bunch of new loot to grind, and a raid called Dreaming City.

Forsaken also features a new game mode that meshes both PVP and PVE. It's called Gambit and it pits two teams against each other side by side, racing to see which team can clear waves of PVE enemies faster. The interesting kicker is one player can invade an opposing team's side to mess with their progress.

Features such as the return of random rolls of weapons, the new bow weapon type, and the ability to track your collection of weapons and armor are just some of the things included in this expansion.

Now, just like the first game's major expansion, you'll require the base game plus the first two expansions; Curse of Osiris, and Warmind. Forsaken will cost $40 alone but can jump to $70 if you consider the game's Annual Pass. 

Bungie announced the future of Destiny 2 right before E3 2018, so expect more details and footage of Forsaken in the coming days. 

Destiny 2: Forsaken will be out on September 4, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC through Blizzard's platform.
