Destiny 2 Season 18 formally releases on August 23, instantly following the Destiny 2 Showcase set to element the Lightfall growth and all of the modifications coming firstly of Year 6. Thanks to Twitter person @joshhunt, the datamining neighborhood has discovered tons of latest particulars about Season 18 content material forward of launch, together with its title, the returning Destiny 1 raid, exercise names, and extra.

Season 18 will probably be referred to as Season of the Plunder, and gamers will leap right into a revised model of the King’s Fall Raid from The Taken King Destiny 1 growth. The new actions are referred to as Hideout and Expedition, and whereas the leak doesn’t have a lot element on what these are, the seasonal story, “Ketchcrash,” factors to Fallen-centric content material, and so they’re all about taking what they will, nevertheless they will. This leads many to foretell that gamers will probably be sneaking into enemy territory and stealing loot and intel on no matter risk is coming.

For its half, the King’s Fall Raid is among the most beloved experiences in Destiny franchise historical past, and there was a lot neighborhood debate about whether or not it or the Wrath of the Machine Raid would return throughout the Witch Queen growth’s runtime. As King’s Fall offers with Oryx, Savathun’s Hive god brother, it solely made sense to be the returning exercise.

King’s Fall is a way more mechanically-heavy Raid than Vault of Glass, and it’s considerably longer and extra advanced, so Bungie has its work lower out for itself updating the exercise to the Destiny 2 sandbox. It may also be fascinating watching the World’s First race, as all of the veterans of Destiny 1 are greater than conversant in find out how to beat Oryx and all his minions.

While King’s Fall takes place on the Dreadnaught, a paracausal ship presently derelict within the rings of Saturn, there was no phrase on whether or not that location would make extra of a return than as a part of King’s Fall’s opening encounter. Season of the Haunted noticed the Leviathan come again as an exercise house, and gamers have been clamoring for the Dreadnaught to return as a patrol zone since new planets began making their means into Destiny 2. As unlikely as that is perhaps, the Raid alone is certain to be welcomed with open arms.
