Bungie Outlines New Content Releasing in Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter

Bungie Outlines New Content Releasing in Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter

This mysterious faction has always hidden in the shadows and it's great that we will finally get to learn more about them.

The Season of the Drifter in Destiny 2 is almost upon us, and Bungie has finally revealed the latest season's start date. Then there's The Reckoning PvE activity, new weapons and armor, lore, and then there's a power boost to 640 and ranking reset with all new rewards.

Until Season of the Drifter releases next week, the specifics of how to get all the pinnacle weapons are unknown. The quest to unlock Thorn will begin on Tuesday 12th March. The Reckoning is set in the realm of the Nine inside the Drifter's planet-sized cargo, and pits Gambit Prime teams against hordes of enemies in what looks like a timed horde mode. Gambit Prime private matches will also be added on April 2. Additionally, on 12 March, Gambit Prime will get a second map called Deep Six (Titan); a third map, The Legion's Folly (Nessus) follows on 19 MArch and a fourth, Emerald Coast (EDZ) comes on 26 March. Also, with The Recluse, any weapon's damage will increase for a brief time. There will also be three new Gambit weapons to earn in the activity, as well as new armor sets through Gambit Prime and The Reckoning.

Winning a round of Gambit Prime is just the beginning.

Also, the new season will bring a bunch of new features in the game, and the developers have chose to release them one after another.

The Drifter is the focus of Joker's Wild, but so is his relationship with the Nine.

That being said, with the way all facets of the content are expected to evolve over the course of a season, it looks like Season of the Drifter will likely offer more for players to do than Season of the Forge. Every week for a period of nine weeks, players will be able to collect new lore and "powerful" rewards for completing the bounty. However, we do know what they are and what their unique perk will be.

Each stage of Destiny 2's annual pass ups the Power level cap by 50, meaning the Season of the Drifter will push it to a clean 700 and the newly named Season of Opulence will bump it to 750. The first tier of The Reckoning will be available at the start of the season on March 5, along with Gambit Prime's first new map, a Mars location called New Arcadia. There is no other way to access this content, so if you want to partake in Season of the Drifter make sure to pick up the Annual Pass.

There will be a new Weekly Alliance Quest that will have Guardians choose between aligning with the Vanguard and the Drifter.

Supposedly, there will be new exotic weapons and armor in Season of the Drifter, but the only one confirmed is Thorn.

Outside of the Annual Pass, all players will have the opportunity to earn new a new Pinnacle weapon in the Crucible as well as a new Vanguard weapon, and there's also going to be a spring event called The Revelry which will run from Tuesday 16th April to Monday 6th May. Oh, and Iron Banner will close out the month.
