Des­tiny 2’s For­sak­en expan­sion will launch on Sep­tem­ber 4th, Bungie announced today dur­ing a livestream. 

For­sak­en is a big expan­sion, like The Tak­en King and Rise of iron in Des­tiny OG. For­sak­en takes play­ers back to the reef. For­sak­en is has a good old west­ern revenge theme and kicks off with hav­ing to break Cayde‑6 out of prison. Bungie is stay­ing tight lipped with any addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about the sto­ry until E3

The weapons sys­tem is see­ing some changes. The kinet­ic weapon slot will be able to house shot­guns, a new mod sys­tem is com­ing along side a new mas­ter­work sys­tem that will let you lev­el up your weapons over­time as you play. A new weapon is also com­ing: The Bow and Arrow. 

A new fea­ture called “Col­lec­tions” is also being added to help you track all the items you can acquire in For­sak­en. Col­lec­tions will allow you to look at sets and see how to go get the items you are miss­ing.

For­sak­en adds 3 new super abil­i­ties. Fire Knifes that do what they sound like they do, a giant ham­mer that when slammed caus­es a fire tor­na­do and the war­lock will be able to tele­port then explode.

For the first time in Des­tiny 2, a new raid is being added. This new raid is named “Dream­ing City” and fea­tures more boss­es than any pre­vi­ous raid in the Des­tiny series. Dream­ing City also fea­tures a mas­sive free roam­ing area (like The Tak­en Kings Dread­naught) with puz­zles and plen­ty of secrets to solve and dis­cov­er. Like The Leviathan ( the raid Des­tiny 2 shipped with) Dream­ing City will see more con­tent added over­time.
