The launch trailer, above, provides a brief overview of what’s headed to Destiny 2 once Shadowkeep goes live. Alongside new missions and quests, Shadowkeep includes a new dungeon, the Garden of Salvation raid, close-quarters finishers, new cooperative Strikes, and Crucible updates, and more. Shadowkeep also introduces a new armor system and kicks off Destiny 2’s first batch of seasonal content with the Season of the Undying, which runs from October to December. It seems there may be some new emotes and sparrows releasing when Shadowkeep comes out as well.
But Shadowkeep’s headlining feature and the one that closes the launch trailer out is the ability to go to the Moon, a pivotal location in the first Destiny title. Bungie has claimed that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s Moon is twice the size of its original implementation, serving as the main locales in this expansion.
Bungie has given shape to its five-year plan for Destiny 2, which likely means Destiny 3 is a long way off. The studio has provided a roadmap for Destiny 2’s upcoming DLC leading into November. With Shadowkeep a week away, we’ve compiled a handy guide to help prepare you for the expansion when it launches next month.
