On May 8th, Destiny 2 players will be able to get their hands on the second expansion for the game, titled Warmind.
Not much information has been released about Warmind other than Bungie stating, "...It will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies. You’ll earn new loot and master new activities."
While Bungie is keeping the details of Warmind under wraps for now, players won't have to wait until release day to get more information on the second expansion. Bungie has scheduled livestreams on April 24th to reveal more information about the upcoming addition to Destiny 2.
In the release on April 11th, Bungie not only announced the second expansion, but also shared information and details on what trajectory Destiny 2 will be taking as 2018 progresses.
The planned content that Bungie has announced currently spans up until September 2018.
As current players know Destiny 2 has, as of late, primarily focused on improving gameplay and user experience. Christopher Barrett, in the update on the Bungie website said, "Recent updates have focused on immediate issues to the live game, but in the coming months our vision for the future is converging with critical player feedback to deliver transformative changes to Destiny 2."
Aside from expansions, this update will also see changes to how Bungie handles and delivers content for Destiny 2's competitive player mode, the Crucible.
Bungie said in the release, " For every player of Destiny 2, we’ll be releasing all of the new Crucible Maps being developed for Warmind into matchmaking. The same goes for the maps we released with Curse of Osiris. To keep the community in the Crucible unified, everyone will see new arenas in matchmade playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, Iron Banner, as well as the new weekly rotators that include Rumble and Mayhem. That means more opponents for everyone. With the arrival of Private Matches, players will need to purchase each Expansion to have exclusive access to play those Crucible maps with other players in a private match. This plan goes into effect on May 8 with the beginning of Season Three."
After the release of the first expansion, Curse of Osiris, there was a significant amount of player feedback regarding the state of Crucible and how the add-on content was handled. This is something Bungie is evidently hoping to rectify with the beginning of Season 3 on May 8th.
While Bungie has given players a lot of information to digest before the reveal stream for Warmind on April 24th, there are still a lot of secrets surrounding the upcoming releases into Season 4. So, players should expect even more details about what is coming for Destiny 2 after May 8th!
