Bungie has just given us a peep at what’s coming in Destiny 2’s next season of content, and, boy, does it look very 80’s. Alongside a look at the returning Vault of Glass raid, the Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer trailer is packed with story teases, weapons, armour, and more.
This time around, the Last City has been plunged into an endless night by a Vex simulation. That’s a tricky one to deal with, so we’re turning to one of the last sacred splicers, Mithrax – a Fallen with the power to commune with machines. If you’ve not been following Destiny 2’s story, we initially met Mithrax during the vanilla campaign. He’s the first non-hostile Fallen enemy you meet and pops up in the Season of the Drifter and Beyond Light expansion.
Season of the Splicer features heaps of other goodies, too. We’re getting a new, six-player seasonal activity that involves splicing an entrance to the Nex Network. After duelling hordes of foes, you then make your way into a neon simulation that radiates ’80s vibes – dare I say, it all looks a tad cyberpunk-y. We’re also getting a “weekly pinnacle mission” called Expunge that involves using splicer keys to infiltrate and collapse the Vex Network.
