Destiny 2 fans got a brief and bleak look at the upcoming DLC expansion Forsaken. Opening on a bloody, beaten Cayde-6, the minute-and-a-half long trailer ends with the fan-favorite character lying dead as Prince Uldren stands over him.
Check out the trailer below:
The final shot of the trailer shows us a Guardian carrying Cayde, seemingly implying that vengeance for the Hunter Vanguard’s death is central to the story. And it should be as well, considering just how significant the Exo, voiced by Nathan Fillion, is to the overall Destiny 2 experience.
The Destiny Twitter account’s tagline for the new trailer reads, “In a lawless frontier, take justice into your own hands. The hunt is on.”
Forsaken, which kicks off Year 2 of Destiny 2, marks a return to the Reef as players will explore two new locations, The Tangled Shore and The Dreaming City. We know the expansion follows your Guardian joining Cayde to investigate the unrest in the Reef and hunt down escaped Fallen from the Prison of the Elders. There you’ll battle against Score, a Fallon faction led by eight Barons, and “uncover long lost Awoken secrets.”
This is Destiny 2’s first full expansion, and will include a Raid, a new 4v4 competitive PvE mode called Gambit, and nine new supers.
Forsaken hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on September 4. For more on Forsaken, read about all the new details revealed for the upcoming expansion. Destiny 2’s Forsaken DLC will cost $40 on its own, or $70 with a season pass that will included more premium content.
