Destiny 2‘s upcoming expansion, Forsaken, will introduce a multitude of radical changes to the game. It appears Guardians won’t have to wait until September 4th to get them all, though, as some of the more significant updates will launch early.
As part of Bungie’s latest blog post, an updated content development roadmap was shared. The new table detailed what players will be able to expect from now until September’s 188.8.131.52 patch, which marks the beginning of the game’s second year and the introduction of Forsaken. However, as seen in the roadmap below, several of the expansion’s updates will arrive on August 28th, a week ahead of the DLC’s launch.
In update 2.0.0, Guardians will receive the new weapon slot changes, the ability to delete shaders in bulk, additional vault space, and more. Initially teased in April, Bungie later confirmed that the fall expansion will introduce weapon slot changes, similar to the first Destiny‘s format. Instead of Destiny 2‘s restrictive Kinetic, Energy, and Power categories, players will be able to put any weapon in any of the three slots.
The bulk shader deletion and increased vault space will also allow Guardians to free up their inventories. This is great news, as Forsaken will include new weapons, armor, and shaders that Guardians will want to hunt down immediately upon launch. Now they’ll have a week-long head start to make room for the new goodies.
Milestones and challenges will also be getting revamped, along with the launch of Heroic story missions. After that, Guardians will finally be able to experience the content-loaded Forsaken expansion. In addition to a new campaign, players will have access to the PvP and PvE Gambit mode, nine new subclass branches and Supers, Prestige raid updates, and more.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Forsaken expansion will launch on September 4th.
