Next week, Destiny 2 kicks off its next epic season with Season of the Splicer. In this season, the Vex have created a simulation that has plunged the tower and various parts of the solar system into endless night. Guardians must partner up with Mithrax Kell of the House of Light to hack the simulation and put an end to the advancement of the Vex.
Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer kicks off on May 11, 2021 and will run until August 24, 2021. Throughout this season, players will get to enjoy a new six player activity called Override, a new Stasis Exotic Sidearm Cryosthesia 77k, a weekly pinnacle mission called Expunge and the return of my personal favorite Destiny 1 raid, Vault of Glass. Furthermore, Bungie will also include the ability to make any armor in a Guardian’s possession into a Universal Ornament. Thus, allowing players to maintain their favorite style. More below:
Guardians will hack the Vex simulation in the six-player matchmade activity Override to uncover secrets and steal Vex code. Additionally, Guardians will be able to run the weekly pinnacle mission Expunge, where they will uncover and exploit vulnerabilities in the Vex Network to collapse it from the inside.
On May 22, Guardians will once again be able to infiltrate the iconic Vault of Glass (VoG) raid. For the uninitiated, VoG sees Guardians navigate fractures in time and space to find Atheon, Time’s Conflux. The mysterious Vex awaits deep within the vault and must be shut down before it becomes unstoppable. This is not just a straight port, with quality-of-life changes introduced to make VoG feel more in line with player’s expectations today, as well as new challenges and triumphs and some old favorites waiting to be earned.
Free for all players, Armor Synthesis brings transmog to Destiny by unlocking the power to create a Universal Ornament from any piece of armor in a Guardian’s possession. Season Pass owners will also get immediate access to the Exotic Stasis Sidearm Cryosthesia 77K, Season-specific Universal Ornaments, XP boosts that will speed up Seasonal rank gains and unlocks along their reward track, and more.
Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer begins May 11, 2021.
