Beforehand, Future 2 dipped a toe in summary, geometric colourscapes in final yr’s Prophecy dungeon. Now, within the Vex-themed Season of the Splicer, due subsequent Tuesday, Bungie goes all-out Tron with a collection of simulations that Guardians shall be tasked with bringing down.
As Ikora explains within the new season’s trailer, the Vex have pressured town into everlasting darkness, which apparently is one thing they’ll a) do, and b) have solely simply achieved. To cease him, we’ll be turning to our Fallen pal Mithrax—lastly the star after years spent hiding in sidequests, lore and that bit within the Zero Hour secret mission the place he turns up, kills one Dregg after which swoops in on the finish after you’ve got achieved the entire laborious work.
Additionally, sure! Ikora is talking for the primary time since Season of the Timeless, over a yr in the past.
The 2 at present revealed actions for this season are the weekly pinnacle mission, Expunge, the place Guardians will infiltrate the Vex community, and a brand new six-player matchmade exercise referred to as Override. You additionally hack the Vex community in that one: presumably in a barely totally different means.
Season of the Splicer’s teaser web page additionally hypes 30 new and reprised Legendary weapons, and the introduction of transmog—itself the topic of current controversy due to the very Future 2 means that Future 2 is dealing with it. We additionally get a trio of Unique boots, together with—lastly—a Warlock Unique that provides alternate utility to rifts by doubling down on assist potential with a Lumina-like impact.
- Star-Eater Scales: Permits Hunters to feast upon Orbs of Energy, charging their Tremendous extra rapidly and making it stronger.
- The Path of Burning Steps: Titan armor that converts Photo voltaic eliminations into elevated weapon injury and makes them harder to lock down with Stasis.
- Boots of the Assembler: Condenses a Warlock rifts’ therapeutic or empowering vitality into projectiles that hunt down their allies to bless them with noble advantages.
As for the Season Cross Unique—Cryosthesia 77k—it is Future 2’s second Stasis elemental weapon. Hopefully it can honest higher than the primary, Salvation’s Grip, which I do not assume I used in any respect outdoors of that one Past Gentle fetch quest the place you needed to shoot pyramids with it for causes.
Barely after the season’s launch, on Could 22, we’ll see the addition of Future 1’s Vault of Glass raid. This, over the entire above, is probably going what is going to draw lapsed Guardians again into the sport, and I am undoubtedly wanting ahead to see if and the way it’s modified to suit into Future 2’s radically totally different fight sandbox.
