Destiny 2’s expansion of year 3 is called Shadowkeep. This is what we know about it …
Destiny 2 is called Shadowkeep and takes place on the Moon, where the Guardians will face once more against the Hive. Shadowkeep is a “completely independent” experience, which means you won’t have to buy last year’s Forsaken expansion, the Annual Pass or the base game to play it. That should definitely make things less confusing for late adopters, especially at just $ 35.
In a ViDoc, Bungie also revealed that there will be more aspects of psychological horror in the expansion and that the experience will take advantage of the Guardians’ fears. Hive areas have always been some of the creepiest places in these games, but it seems that Bungie is really pressing the horror aspect of the stage.
Shadowkeep is the first major expansion for Destiny 2 since Bungie separated from Activision earlier this year. Bungie retained the rights to develop and publish new content for the franchise, taking Destiny’s destiny … into his own hands. As such, the developer has announced some other changes to the game, including a free version of the experience called Destiny 2: New Light that will allow players to jump to the base game, as well as all the content of Year 1, including expansions The curse of Osiris and Warmind, free
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Trailers
The launch of the great Year 3 expansion of Destiny 2 is only a few days away. To celebrate, Bungie has launched a new breakthrough that shows everything included in the update
Shadowkeep will present the Garden of Salvation, a new six-player raid set in the Black Garden, an alternative kingdom built by Vex that was initially shown at the end of the original Destiny’s main campaign. In the past, the Black Garden was a beautiful but shallow area full of flowers and robots. It looks so awesome on Shadowkeep, and seeing that this time is a fat raid instead of a fight with a drop of metal (don’t ask, it wasn’t fun), there should be a lot more too
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Dungeon confirmed
In addition to a raid, Shadowkeep will add another dungeon similar to the Shattered Throne of Dreaming City, which is a kind of three-player mini-raid. Unfortunately, we know less about this activity, but it will follow the same format: three players, raid mechanics, loot based on encounters. If it is as ingenious and exciting as the Shattered Throne, this dungeon will be one of Shadowkeep’s main attractions.
The study premiered the first breakthrough of the expansion during the live broadcast of Stadia Direct in June. Start with Eris Morn, Hive’s expert from Destiny’s past stories, explaining that Darkness is rumbling once again on the Moon, an important place in the first game that hasn’t appeared in the sequel so far.
The rest of the trailer is more of those familiar things. Yes, of course there will be new attack and crucible arenas, totally damn new looks and a great elegant raid for the coming months. Shadowkeep is a great time for Destiny 2, its first expansion without an editor’s safety net, and Bungie is bringing the big guns in more ways than one.
