A new season has arrived in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and we're strapping on those Guardian boots once more to dive right in. Season of the Chosen brings Calus' daughter front and center while also introducing a new PvE element with Battlegrounds. From becoming an Avenger in the Guardian world with the War Table to learning more about pivotal characters from the franchise, we're exploring it all.

Join Liana Ruppert and fellow writer Damien Gulu as they tackle the Battlegrounds head-on while also taking on a few Strikes as well. Let's see what the new season has to offer, shall we? 

Season 13's main focus is jumping into the Battlegrounds. Battlegrounds is a three-player activity that will pit players against Caiatl's most valuable warriors in ritual-like combat meant to challenge and invigorate. If Battlegrounds aren't your cup of tea, Bungie is also bringing back Devil's Lair and Fallen S.A.B.E.R. Strikes for their return from the original Destiny ahead of a new Strike arriving with Proving Grounds. 

It wouldn't be a new season without new gear, as well. Season Pass owners can look forward to unlocking the Praefectus Armor Set instantaneously, as well as the new Ticuu's Divination Exotic Bow. The bow, for those that like a little more old-fashioned combat, charges multiple Solar arrows that can track moving targets simultaneously. Players can also unlock over 25 Exotic, Legendary, and ritual items as well. 

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Season of the Chosen is live now and will run until May 11.
