Destiny 2: Forsaken
A Darker Tale
Players will set out on a new journey with Cayde-6 to stop a breakout at the Prison of Elders orchestrated by Uldren Sov, the prince of the Awoken. Cayde is killed in your attempt to seal the Barons away once again, and you set out on a quest for revenge, alone in the Reef and away from the Vanguard's oversight. These screens showcase a number of new weapons, powers, characters and locations such as The Tangled Shore.
Taking matters into your own hands
After the Red War against Ghaul, the Reef has been decimated, becoming completely lawless. The area is now a frontier where players will embark on a mission of vengeance against Uldren Vos. A bigger threat looms as well, one that could threaten the people of the Awoken.
Setting The Tone
Forsaken's art showcases the new darker tone for the expansion, with gear taking on the flavor of a western vibe. We also get a glimpse of the Reef and some of the villains we'll be facing.
Taking a chance
Gambit is the wild new mode that mixes pvp and pve for the first time in Destiny 2. Our new preview states that it "offers a promising glimpse of what Year 2 of Destiny 2 could bring" and the mode looks to be something entirely new to the series and should really mix up the multiplayer options in Forsaken. Gambit involves two teams of 4 players taking the fight to the enemy while disrupting the enemy team by sending in combat blockers to sow chaos.
Guns, Gear, And Glory
Destiny 2 wouldn't be anything without a boatload of new guns, armor and gear to collect and play with. Forsaken has a whole new weapon archetype with the legendary bow, and a ton of new exotics; these, along with the new weapon slot system, should provide tons of options for players. The bow should really help you mix things up in the Crucible, and I hope Shaxx will have all sorts of new one-liners about your capabilities as an archer.
Petra and Cayde return, along with Uldren Sov from the original game, and the new Gambit vendor. There are also the Barons, your enemies and the most wanted criminals in the galaxy, held at the Prison of Elders.
