Destiny 2

Lightfall Content Update released today!

Destiny 2

02/28/2023 - Today Bungie released the latest expansion for Destiny 2 - Destiny 2: Lightfall. Lightfall is the penultimate chapter of the ongoing saga of light and darkness in Destiny 2, where Guardians can encounter the sinister forces of the Shadow Legion, explore a secret city on the surface of Neptune, and discover a new focus with the power of darkness: Strand.

In Lightfall, Guardians face the task of preventing the apocalypse by stopping the Witness and his newest apprentice, Calus. Along the way, the Guardians encounter the Shadow Legion and fearsome, formidable new tormentors bent on destroying the high-tech capital of Neomuna.

Guardians will have a new focus in Lightfall. With the help of Strang, they can tug at the strings that hold the universe together and wield unprecedented combat and movement abilities. Strang gives each Keeper class powerful new attacks that they can use in unique ways, as well as a new shimmy ability that greatly enhances their mobility and passage through the game.

Lightfall's companion season, Season of Resistance, releases on the same day as the new Destiny 2 expansion. Guardians are called into action by Mara Sov and the Queen's Guard to investigate the pyramid outposts popping up on the planet and confront humanity's greatest enemies. Players move onto the Resistance Battlegrounds - a new three-person activity that comes with the season - where Guardians use their newly acquired Powers of the Awakened to open portals into the Ascendant Plane and confront the Shadow Legion.

The new raid and the race for World First will start on March 10.

Shortly after Lightfall launches, Bungie will unlock its newest raid, Root of Nightmares. Destiny raids are demanding top-tier activities for six experienced guardians who not only have fighting skills, but must also cooperate and overcome seemingly impossible challenges.

"Root of Nightmares" will be released to all Lightfall players on March 10 at 18:00 CET (17:00 UTC). With the launch of the raid, Bungie will also launch a worldwide contest to crown the first task force in the world to complete the raid. The successful strike team will receive a unique "World First" title belt for each strike team member and, of course, the glory of having taken the "World First" title. In the days following the raid's release, the winning team will be officially announced.
