After it was announced along Destiny 2 – Beyond Light Bungie finally revealed the true nature in 2020 Lightfall, the MMO’s 2023 expansion. The studio showed off Lightfall’s first trailer during the 2022 Destiny 2 Showcase. Bungie also revealed the date of release LightfallThe launch of, which is scheduled for February 28, 2023, will be announced.
Lightfall is the follow-up expansion to this year’s The Witch QueenThis will be The Witness’ first battle against Guardians. The expansion will bring with it a new destination and raid as well as a host new Exotic weapons. Lightfall will add a new Darkness subclass, Strand, for the second consecutive time in Destiny history.
The Strand is the first green subclass in the franchise’s repertoire, and will focus on giving Guardians increased movement abilities. We see Titans, Warlock and Hunters using new Strand abilities in the trailer. Each class is shown tackling a new destination, such as Spider-Man.
The trailer for Lightfall also showed that Guardians were heading to Neptune to stop The Witness’s followers from taking control of the Sol system, Last City, as well as the Traveler.
The Witness was introduced in the Destiny lore quite some time ago as a mythological figure called “The Winnower,” but was first introduced in-game via The Witch Queen’s post-credits scene. The Witness is seeking what it calls “The Final Shape,” which is essentially a perfected version of the universe — when all of the wheat has been properly separated from the chaff.
Destiny 2’s first official saga — The Light and Darkness saga — will end with The Final Shape Expansion in 2024 Bungie didn’t reveal anything about Lightfall’s sequel during the reveal event, but based on the name alone, it seems likely that Lightfall isn’t going to end well for the Guardians of the Last City.
Fans will have to wait until next year to find out how terrible things will be for Zavala, the crew, and their families. As always, Bungie will continue to reveal more about Lightfall, Strand, and the franchise’s newest destination in the coming months.
