The Storyline Of Destiny 2: Lightfall Puts You In The Middle Of A Battle Between Light And Darkness In A Cyberpunk World

Bungie teased its upcoming Destiny 2: Lightfall expansion more than two years ago, and since then, players have had the opportunity to gain control of the Darkness, fight Savathûn and her undead army, and witness… The Witness.

Then, on February 28th, it’s time to shake things up again with the launch of Destiny 2: Lightfall, which has a new cyberpunk setting, new Strand subclasses, and much more to offer.

As it happens, this will also be the final battle in the epic light vs. dark saga of Destiny.

There is a significant cyberpunk influence to Destiny 2: Lightfall that makes it an unusual new location for Bungie’s franchise.

There is a new hidden Neomuna city on Neptune, which serves as a dystopian futuristic setting for the continuation of Destiny 2’s storyline, which once again features Calus as the main antagonist once again.

The Witness, a mysterious humanoid villain, has Calus on its side as it fights to destroy the Traveler, who is equally mysterious.

Nomura, the capital city of Neptune, is full of bright neon lights that create an aurora borealis-like illumination throughout the city.

It is unlike anything else that exists in the Destiny universe, and it is a secret technologically advanced city that has never been seen before.

In addition, it houses the new Cloud Striders that protect Neomuna, as well as the Shadow Legion Cabal faction and the huge Tormentors that can be seen from a distance, which can be used to attack Neomuna.

This is the second time that Bungie is introducing a new subclass for the game with Lightfall. In the game, Strand is a green-colored subclass that is able to give Destiny 2 guardians a boost of power, unlike anything we have ever seen before.

With abilities that are more focused on movement and traversal to help you out, Strand goes even further than Stasis to provide you with even more power.

A grapple hook is one of the most exciting new additions to Strand, much like what we have seen in Fortnite, Halo Infinite, and Apex Legends.

In this game, you have the ability to grapple at any point, and you can use the hook to grapple anything that you want.

This grappling hook was created initially to be used by the Hunter class, however, Bungie decided to expand it to all three classes so that every guardian will be able to use it.

It is important to note that Strand isn’t just about the grapple hook, as it includes a number of damage abilities as well.

A titan gets giant claws that he can use for damage, a hunter gets a rope that he can weave and whip with, and a warlock gets a super ability that is similar to a blade barrage.

The team at Bungie is also working on making Destiny 2: Lightfall a lot more accessible to new and old players alike.

There is a new ranking system in Destiny 2 called Guardian ranks that allows players to identify experienced players among their friends.

The game is also going to add a built-in looking for groups (LFG) system in 2023 that will allow players to group up for activities by searching online.

In addition, there is a new commendation system that allows players to show appreciation to their fellow players for their efforts.

A mod manager has also been added to the quality of life improvements, as well as in-game loadouts. For years, Destiny 2 players have been forced to use third-party tools like DIM in order to play the game, so anything that can be integrated into the game will be very welcome.

Destiny 2: Lightfall will launch next year, but before that, there is a new season of Destiny 2 that begins today. There is a lot of emphases placed on being space pirates in Season of Plunder, where we see the return of the Fallen Eramis villain.

A new Ketchcrash mode is available so that you can board pirate ships and loot chests, as well as another activity that lets you hunt down pirate leaders as part of your battles.

The Season of Plunder also introduces Arc 3.0, the final rework of class abilities in the game.

As part of the update, Titans are getting a new Thunderclap melee attack that deals a lot of damage, and Hunters are receiving a new Blink movement. There are two new lightning melee attacks for warlocks as well.

There will also be a return of the King’s Fall raid on Friday, originally a part of the original expansion The Taken King. It is a big season as we get closer to the release of Destiny 2: Lightfall, as well as a Fortnite and Fall Guys crossover, and the release of Destiny 2 on the Epic Games Store.

On February 28th, Destiny 2: Lightfall will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Stadia.
