The game developer Bungie talks about bringing bigger changes to Destiny 2 Lightfall and its upcoming expansions. Find out more right here.
Game developers Bungie have decided to make Destiny 2: Lightfall an even better First Person Shooter with a range of changes that will also last for a few upcoming expansions. With the upcoming launch of Lightfall, things are expected to become more challenging until the release of The Final Shape expansion sometime in 2024.
The game director Joe Blackburn mentioned these challenging additions to Destiny 2 and a lot more in his blog post, which will be discussed by The CPU Guide in this article to give you an overview of what to expect from Destiny 2: Lightfall and its expansions.
Upcoming Content in Destiny 2 Lightfall
The Destiny 2 Lightfall is going to bring some noticeable changes for the fans along with the Season of Defiance launch. Here is the list of content coming with the official release on February 28th, 2023.
- Challenging Vanguard Ops playlist.
- Three new Crucible modes feature Checkmate Control, Countdown, and Countdown Rush.
- Lake of Shadows
- Upgraded Arms Dealer strikes.
- Included Battlegrounds missions
- The game excludes Umbral Energies and Umbrals.
- Players will be able to unlock Seasonal chests with a single key.
- Better seasonal upgrades.
- Deepsight weapons will drop only for patterns you haven’t attained.
New Weapons Crafting Skills
Developers are also bringing changing the weapons crafting skills by categorizing them into three different enhancements, which are mentioned below.
Enhancement Tier #1
- For the first enhancement, we can replace the existing masterwork, and it grants an enhanced intrinsic weapon level. The “first enhanced” timestamp and the memento socket will be attached to the weapon.
- Exclusively for raid Adepts: these perks allow full selection over the magazine perks and barrels.
- The cost required for the Enhancement Tier 1 changes will depend on the Masterwork tier replacing the existing work.
- The enhancement cost of a weapon with a Masterwork tier value of 1 will be much more expensive than that of 10 weapons.
Enhancement Tier #2
- This tier unlocks a requirement of weapon level 11. This tier allows enhancement of the left column trait perk.
Enhancement Tier #3
- This tier unlocks a requirement of weapon level 17. It will allow enhancement of the right column trait perk.
Bungie also mentioned that these enhancement tiers might not apply to a wide range of existing weapons until they notify further. However, they will add raid Adepts for all featuring Lightfall. The rest of the new features are planned for Season 21.
What’s Coming with in Season of the Deep and Later till 2024 Launch
There is a lot of waiting till the launch of Season 21, and Bungie is already hyping us up by announcing to expect the following content in the upcoming expansions.
- Now you can enhance random weapons just like specially crafted weapons.
- New looking Group LFG Tool.
- Main activity loot pools will now feature Exotic armor.
- Presage, and other favorites are coming back with the Exotic mission rotator.
Changes that Might Revert in The Upcoming Expansions
Some changes might revert until the Season of the Deep launch in 2024. Destiny 2 will still maintain the old cycle of collecting unlimited copies of loot to increase the overall power gradually. However, the power cap concept won’t be increased in Season 21 as the game developers think that the power increasing concept restricts players from the best of the content that the game has to offer. Therefore, more changes are expected in The Final Shape version of the Destiny Franchise.
Is Destiny 2 Lightfall Better than The Witch Queen?
After going through the proposed changes in Destiny 2 Lightfall, I believe the game is going to be a lot better than The Witch Queen, with reduced bloat and redefined seasonal progression. But at the same time, fans are raising a lot of questions, like how the crafting will fit into all this and how the game will manage modes like Gambit in the upcoming expansions of Destiny.
I believe Destiny 2: Lightfall will maintain the reputation and hype for the upcoming game expansions until their launch. The game developers want the name Destiny to become more recognizable for its content and unique cyber-punk-themed coloring environment. Let’s hope that Bungie sticks to what they’ve revealed in the upcoming expansions of the game.
