The Fourth year of Destiny 2 starts next month, and Bungie is celebrating the occasion in a major way. Destiny 2: Beyond Light, the next major expansions for Bungie’s shooter-MMO is out November 10, bringing with it a new era for the game. The expansion includes a new campaign, location, and tons of smaller changes to an already huge game. Beyond Light is available to preorder on PS4, Xbox One, Steam, and Stadia, and is coming to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as well. As always, there are a number of different editions to get.
Season 11, called Season of Arrivals, kicked off in Destiny 2 back in June, continuing the story of the Guardians in their ongoing battle to save humanity. The chain of events in Season 11 will lead into the upcoming expansion. As a new power emerges from the ancient pyramid ship above Europa, Jupiter’s frozen moon, the Guardians will be called to investigate its harsh frontier, infiltrate the Golden Age Braytech facility, and discover its secrets in Beyond Light. The expansion introduces a new elemental power, Stasis, and a brand-new six-person raid in the Deep Stone Crypt underneath the frozen tundra.
The livestream also confirmed the next major expansions that will come after Beyond Light. Witch Queen will arrive in 2021, while Lightfall will launch in 2022. The next expansions will mark the beginning of a new era in Destiny, according to Bungie.
Bungie also announced Destiny 2 will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. If you purchase Destiny 2: Beyond Light on Xbox One, it’ll be available on Xbox Series X for free because of Xbox Smart Delivery. PS4 purchases will also upgrade to PS5 for free.
