'Destiny 2' Season Of The Haunted Begins Tomorrow, Brings New Activities, Gear, Solar Subclass Updates And More - Trailer

Destiny 2 is a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation.

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a "Guardian," humanity's chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city's forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home.


Tomorrow, Bungie releases Season of the Haunted for Destiny 2, where players face the return of Calus’s corrupted space vessel, the Leviathan. Guardians confront the Nightmares of the past, embrace updated Solar subclasses with Solar 3.0, become a Reaper, and wield a scythe.

Once a symbol of ultimate luxury, the Leviathan returns corrupted and derelict to contact the Moon’s dormant Pyramid ship. As the connection with the Pyramid forms, Nightmares of the past awaken and threaten to torment any who dare intervene.

Season of the Haunted comes with more activities and content for all players:

  • Nightmare Containment (free for all players) – Evil resonates within the hull of the emperor’s wretched vessel. Summon the challenging Nightmares and cleanse them with fire.
  • Sever – Navigate the Leviathan’s labyrinthine Underbelly, uncover the truth behind Calus’s sinister plan, and sever the Nightmares he controls.
  • Solar 3.0 (free for all players) – Solar becomes the latest subclass to receive a complete redesign empowered by the ultra-customizable Aspects and Fragments system. Light the flames of creativity, discover new builds, and prove that there’s never a bad time to fight fire with fire.
  • Trespasser Exotic Sidearm (free for all players) – Returning from the original Destiny, wield Shiro-4's Exotic Sidearm and let lightning flash across the tarnished gold of the Leviathan’s twisted halls. Season Pass holders can unlock this weapon instantly.
  • New Season Pass, gear, mods, updated Solstice event, and more!

Season of the Haunted will run until August 23.


New to the Eververse store is the Season of the Haunted Silver Bundle, giving Guardians the Paper Windmill emote and 1,700 Silver (1,000 + 700 bonus Silver), which can be used to purchase Seasons, cosmetics, and more.

Launching later this week on May 27th at 10 AM PT is the first of two dungeons included in The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition. Anyone who owns that version of this year's expansion will be able to play the new dungeon as well as the upcoming dungeon in Season 19.

For players who only want access to the two Year 5 dungeons, Bungie is also selling The Witch Queen Dungeon Key. This can be picked up in-game for 2,000 Silver.

The secrets that the new dungeon holds are still tightly under wraps, but some of the rewards to look forward to include a new Legendary armor set, Legendary weapons, an Exotic weapon and catalyst, and more.

Destiny 2 is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
