Since it was revealed earlier this summer, Destiny 2: Beyond Light was positioned as a new beginning for the three year old game. When you think about it, a lot has changed in almost two years. Bungie broke up with Activision and basically started handling everything itself. Shadowkeep was the studio’s first real expansion by itself and over the months we’ve seen a massive list of big time changes like Cross-saving, Steam support, and so much more.
Now with Beyond Light, we’re getting a brand new destination and a new darkness-based subclass which has certainly made its presence felt in modes like the Crucible. Outside of new content, the expansion and corresponding update also saw Bungie make one of the most dramatic changes the franchise has ever seen through weapon sunsetting and the Content Vault.
There’s an absolute ton to digest here and while I’m slowly nearing the max power level of this season, it’s time to talk about the Beyond Light expansion, massive game changes, and corresponding Season of the Hunt. Let’s dive in.
