Destiny 2: Beyond Light will add plenty of new content to developer Bungie’s sandbox, with one of the primary draws being the ability to finally wield the power of the Darkness. While Guardians can harness Stasis energies to wreak havoc on their enemies, they won’t be the only life-forms capable of doing so.
A new story trailer for the expansion has revealed that a gathering of Fallen has also been gifted with those dark powers.
Bungie has also posted character descriptions on its site, detailing the enemies and allies who you’ll encounter, such as the new Fallen Kell Eramis, her lieutenants, and a few other familiar faces.
The deadly Kell of Darkness seeks to restore the glory of her people. To exact revenge on the Traveler for abandoning them. To forge Eliksni culture anew, free from the weight of its past. Now imbued with the power of Stasis, she has found the ultimate tool to achieve her aims.
House Salvation Elites
Eramis’s lieutenants – Atraks, Kridis, Phylaks, Praksis. The highest-ranking and most trusted subjects of the Fallen Kell of Darkness. Skilled Stasis wielders, they are as lethal as they are loyal; potent foes who will stop at nothing to advance Eramis’s cause.
After helping Uldren Sov escape the Prison of Elders, Variks has only recently emerged from hiding. An uneasy ally in the fight against Eramis, he is a shrewd opportunist who wants to do good, even if his choices are always suspect.
The Exo Stranger
The mysterious Exo has not been seen since the fall of the Black Garden. With exceptional insight into the future, she has made Europa her home. Her experience will guide Guardians’ understanding of the power of Stasis.
A survivor of unspeakable horrors, Eris is a former Hunter who has dedicated her life to understanding – and defeating – the Darkness. Now she answers The Exo Stranger’s call… and the lure of Stasis.
Smooth talker. Scavenger. Hustler. The Drifter is all of these things and more. A Lightbearer from the earliest days of the Last City, he has long boasted of his connection to the Darkness. For him, it’s not about right or wrong. It’s about survival.
Players will utilize one of three distinct new subclasses in Beyond Light, such as the Warlock Shadebinder, Titan Behemoth, or Hunter Revenant. If those deadly new powers don’t work you can always rely on good old-fashioned firepower to get the job done, now that Bungie has revealed a new selection of Exotic weapons and armor.
Beyond Light will launch on November 10 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Stadia, with Destiny 2 also being available through backwards compatibility on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5 on launch day for those consoles, receiving new graphical enhancements in the process. Next-gen upgrades will add more optimizations to Destiny 2 in December, further increasing the visual quality, frame rate, and adding even quicker load times.
