Season of the Seraph trailer revealed in Destiny 2

Bungie just unveiled the next season of Destiny 2 content, and it’s called Season of the Seraph. Xivu Arath wants to take control of Rasputin’s War Sats, and it’s down to us to stop them. Today I am going to check out the trailer for the new season, plus go into detail about the new activities, loot, events and lots more.

Today, Season of the Seraph is available in Destiny 2, with new Seasonal activities, weekly missions that culminate to the discovery of a new Exotic weapon, a brand-new dungeon, some PvP updates, and more coming to the action MMO. Bungie is also excited to partner with Ubisoft to bring in-game ornaments to players who can now dress as iconic assassins in Destiny 2. Annual events such as The Dawning and Moments of Triumph are also back this Season for Guardians to celebrate the holidays, the past year of in-game memories, and prepare for the new challenges ahead.

Season of the Seraph activities and rewards

This Season centers on the Bray family’s complicated history and their relationship with the Warmind, Rasputin, that is being compromised by Xivu Arath. Guardians will infiltrate Braytech facilities in Heist Battlegrounds and participate in weekly story missions to attempt to restore the Warmind.

This Friday, a new dungeon will unlock for Guardians who are ready for the challenge. The dungeon is available to players who own The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition or The Witch Queen Dungeon Key.

Crucible updates inbound

A ton of updates are coming to Crucible in Season of the Seraph, including:

  • Updating the Crucible playlist structure to streamline Crucible offerings
  • Glory is being replaced with a new ladder called Competitive Division, a 3v3 ladder with seven rank divisions
  • A new Crucible Seal, Glorious, has been added to replace the Unbroken Seal
  • Bringing engram focusing to Lord Shaxx to give players more ways to engage with Crucible rewards
  • Trails of Osiris is getting a new Hand Cannon and Machine Gun
  • Iron Banner will get a new Zone Control mode called Fortress
  • Reprised Iron Banner armor sets from The Taken King

Become an assassin

Leap into the Light as Destiny 2 collaborates with Ubisoft on new assassin-themed ornaments for each class and brand-new items available in Eververse. For those who want to explore the system in a stealthy style, players can sport looks inspired by Eivor (Titan), Kassandra (Hunter), and Altair (Warlock) in Destiny 2. On top of armor ornaments, guardians can also grab a new ghost, sparrow, ship, and the “Up my Sleeve” finisher.

Destiny 2 themed cosmetics will also be available for Eivor in Ubisoft’s newest release. Players can wield a Greatsword inspired by the storied Gjallarhorn Rocket Launcher, wear Shaxx and Saint-XIV-themed armor, and much more.

Celebrations galore

Starting today and until Lightfall launches on February 28, 2023, Guardians can complete Moments of Triumph challenges to celebrate Destiny 2’s Year-5. With the completion of the Seal, players are able to purchase the Moments of Triumph shirt from Bungie Rewards.

The Dawning is back on Tuesday, December 13 as Eva Levante returns to the Tower to celebrate the holidays with Guardians by baking delicious treats made with questionable ingredients. This year adds a new Pulse Rifle, title, new recipes, and more. Until January 2, players will be tasked with gathering ingredients, baking debatably scrumptious treats, and gifting them to characters across the system while updating the new Event Card to earn festive cosmetics.

Season of the Seraph

Story

The Hive God of War moves to seize control of Rasputin’s network of weaponized satellites. In her hands, she would turn its devastating power on the Last City. To stop her, the Vanguard has authorized special covert operations armed with the Warmind’s most advanced weaponry. Agents conducting these operations are known as Seraphs.

Matchmade Activity – Heist Battlegrounds

Seraphs have deployed to multiple destinations to infiltrate Braytech facilities, bypass advanced defense systems, and neutralize hordes of Wrathborn. Your security clearance has been granted and your Seraph fireteam awaits, Guardian.

Exotic Mision – Operation: Seraph’s Shield

For this mission to succeed, Guardians must gain access to the most impenetrable facility in the solar system: a Braytech orbital platform above the Last City. Break through layers of security each week and awaken Rasputin before it’s too late.

Revision Zero (available on 20th December)

Once deep enough within the facility, Guardians will reach the weapon Revision Zero. In the weeks following its discovery, multiple catalysts can be acquired, each adding to the mysterious Exotic’s power.
