The first trailer for Destiny 2: Season of Opulence has been released. The trailer shows a whole lot of new weapons and armors as well as a new game mode called the Menagerie. This is a six-player activity that supports matchmaking.
Based on the trailer, Season of Opulence also looks to offer several new quests. These include ones such as the quest for a mythic rocket launcher named Truth and also objectives by Benedict-44. The game will take place in Leviathan and the main gameplay will see Emperor Calus offer newer more interesting ways of getting stronger.
Season of Opulence will be the final content in the gameplay calendar of Destiny 2: Forsaken. The previous two contents have been Season of the Forge and Season of the Drifter. Season of Opulence will go live on June 4th.
Here’s the trailer:
Let us talk a bit more about the Menagerie. It is a new six-player matchmade activity that will be introduced in the Season of Opulence. To participate, players will have to acquire the Chalice of Opulence. Players can then make an offering of runes that can be exchanged for desired weapons and armor.
New Menagerie bosses will be added throughout the month of June for Annual Pass owners. Players who have completed the Forsaken campaign will also be allowed to try the Menagerie gameplay once.
Bungie have been occupied with Destiny 2 and its annual passes since the game was released back in 2017. But with the series looking to come to a conclusion, it looks like the developers have been thinking of the future as well.
Community manager David Dague made it clear that right now, Bungie’s priority is Season of Opulence. But what exactly will Bungie be looking forward to after Opulence releases on June 4 and after the Raid belts have been awarded? Here’s what Dague had to say:
“We’ll be looking deeper into the future, and sharing with you more about a new era for Bungie and Destiny 2.”
We could very well be given some update on this during E3. We have heard rumors of Destiny 3, with a release date of 2020 and a special focus on the “hardcore”.
