Destiny 2’s next expansion is Beyond Light, bound for September

For ‘all currently supported platforms’

As expected due to the Australian PSN leak, the new Destiny 2 expansion is on the way and dated for September 22. Now that the official reveal is upon us though we have an actual name: Beyond Light. “All currently supported platforms” (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Stadia) will get Beyond Light. No PS5/Xbox Series X plans were announced

The trailer opens up with that icy footage we saw recently, and director Luke Smith confirms that it will take place on Europa. The classic Destiny character Exo Stranger returns as players tackle new quests and “wield the power of darkness.” You can find the full rundown from Bungie below, including a look at the Collector’s Edition of the expansion.

Bungie also revealed plans for the next few years of Destiny 2, which you can read about here. For all the problems Destiny 2 has, at least we aren’t getting Destiny 3 too soon! The Season of Arrivals starts today, and will herald a new activity called “Prophecy.”

Destiny 2: Beyond Light
A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid ship above Europa, and a dark empire has risen beneath. In the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion, Guardians will explore a changed universe, with a new destination, new adventures, and even new powers to explore.

Explore Europa: In Beyond Light, Guardians will be called to a new destination: Jupiter’s frozen moon of Europa. Brave the unrelenting glacial frontier, infiltrate the Golden Age Braytech facility, and uncover the secrets that lie deep under the ancient ice.

Wield the Darkness: As a new threat emerges, so too does a mysterious new power – Stasis. Rooted in Darkness, Guardians will wield this new elemental power alongside Arc, Solar, and Void to summon epic supers and control the battlefield. Titans, Warlocks and Hunters will each use Stasis in a different way. More details on Stasis to come later this summer.

A New Raid: Below the frozen tundra of Europa lies the Deep Stone Crypt. For decades it has remained dormant. Guardians will test their skill and teamwork in this brand new six-person raid, where glorious rewards await.

The Rise of Eramis: The splintered houses of the Fallen have rallied and built their new empire on Europa, united under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis. Abandoned by the Traveler and left by the Light, Eramis is on her own journey into the Darkness, and towards a collision course with Guardians.
