Bungie have revealed Destiny 2: Beyond Light – Season of the Chosen, the next season of content coming to the long-running MMO shooter.
Season of the Chosen will launch next week on Tuesday 9th February and run until 11th May, 2021.
Season of the Chosen picks up after the events of Season of the Hunt which knocked the established order of the solar system with the Pyramids and some Hive-y shenanigans. Empress Caiatl, the daughter of Calus and new leader of the Cabal, has arrived and seeking an alliance. However, when negotiations break down, you must now strike out from the H.E.L.M., acquire the Hammer of Proving and battle her war council to stave off the threat she poses.
Season 13 adds the new Battlegrounds mode, a three-player matchmade activity where you fight against Caiatl’s chosen warriors. It also brings a few Strikes into the game, with The Devil’s Lair and Fallen SABER returning from Destiny 1 in the Old Russia location. Later in the season an all-new Stirke, Proving Grounds, will see you fight the Cabal to save the Last City once again.
New gear is arriving, with Season Pass owners immediately unlocking the seasonal Praefectus Armor Set and Exotic bow, Ticuu’s Divination, which fires Solar arrows that track multiple targets. More than 25 Exotic, Legendary and ritual weapons will be available to collect.
The new Seasonal Artifact is the Bell of Conquests, which as per usual will increase your Power every time it’s upgraded, letting you grab some Seasonal mods to tweak your build.
As above, Season of the Chosen will kick off on Tuesday 9th February and run until 11th May, 2021. Destiny 2: Beyond Light is available across PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
