Destiny 2: Forsaken has just gotten a new story trailer at the Sony E3 press conference, and it sets the stakes for the upcoming expansion. Starting off with the apparent death of Cayde-6, the trailer establishes a darker tone and focuses on your quest for revenge against his killer, who looks to possibly be the Awoken Queen's brother, Uldren Sov.

Forsaken will be a major mix-up in the Destiny 2 formula, with a focus on making sweeping changes to systems to please longtime players. Things such as new weapon slots, a brand-new game mode, a new location in the Reef and a whole new, darker story will take center stage in the expansion. 

Forsaken can be purchased alone or with the new annual pass, which will contain three content drops throughout year two. 

Forsaken launches September 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
