Lightfall, Season of the Plunder, King’s Fall and Arc 3.0 shown at Destiny 2 Showcase

Today Bungie revealed what is coming next for Destiny 2 as part of their showcase. Bungie showed off Lightfall, new subclasses, Season 18, Arc 3.0, plus a few more exciting things too. Today I’m going to round up all the latest news from Bungie, Destiny 2, and highlight what is coming next.

The main feature of the showcase was Lightfall. This is the next major expansion from Bungie. Before diving into the details, let’s check out the trailer.


Lightfall is the next major expansion from Destiny 2, and we’re taking on The Witness and Calus on Neptune. This is different to what we’ve seen before, this isn’t a broken old city, this is neon, this is something like Cyberpunk.

Calus has a new Cabal army, so no new enemy race. They have suppression devices though which can take away our light and supress abilities. We have Tormentors, beings like Rhulk, almost unstoppable enemies, which are described as the embodiment of terror. It’s time for the last stand against Calus and The Witness, to avoid the collapse.

We’re also getting a new darkness subclass, called Strand.

Power from the darkness. Psychic energy. Pull at the threads in the psyche. Peeling back the curtain of relaity. Through movement or damage. Grappling hook. Grapple onto anything! Similar to Halo Infinite

Warlock – Telekentic, weaver of Strand
Titan – Wave claws super, spinning and slashing
Hunter – Rope Dart super

Lightfall is set to release on 28th February 2023.
