Bungie is constantly updating the game with new content and adding bits to their PvE storyline. Destiny 2’s story is continuously evolving, and players are experiencing new content with each update. For example, they have added a new story arc with this new season, “Season of the Haunted,” and changed the solar subclass to “Solar 3.0.” They have also done the same thing with the void subclass; now it’s called “Void 3.0”.

This article will discuss the new things added to the game this season. We will go through everything you need to know to stay updated with the current changes to the game. So let’s dive in, Shall we?

The story is a big part of Destiny 2. The story of Destiny 2 is always evolving, and we get some new storylines that continue building upon the already vibrant lore with each new update. To continue on with their current narrative, Bungie has added two new stories with this update, and these are:

1. Leviathan’s Return

One can say vengeance, power, and depravity. Calus’s object of desire has taken many forms over the years. Finally, Calus’s once-opulent ship has returned to our galaxy, now derelict and corrupted, with its sights set on the Pyramid ship lying dormant on the Moon.

2. Ghosts of our Past

Nightmares finally awaken from the past, and the Leviathan connects with the Pyramid. It is threatening to torment anyone who dares to intervene. So look into the abyss and find bravery within the reaper’s mantle and the steel of the scythe.


There are some new activities with this new update, and these are:

Luna’s Ward

To better respond to the impending threat, the H.E.L.M. has activated its mobile command center capabilities and is now operating in the dark within the Moon’s orbit.

Become the Reaper


Containment of Nightmares: Evil resonates within the hull of the emperor’s wretched vessel. Call forth the most difficult Nightmares and cleanse them with fire.


Sever: Make your way through the Leviathan’s maze. Discover the truth behind Calus’ sinister plan and sever the Nightmares he controls in the Underbelly.

Solar is the latest subclass to be redesigned entirely, thanks to the highly customizable Aspects and Fragments system. So light the creative flames, discover new builds, and demonstrate that there is never a wrong time to fight fire with fire.

To find restoration, Warlock befriends these fiery priests. If you oppose them, you will see destruction in the rain of shattered dawn. Hunter is a Radiant duelist who thrives on feats of agility and skill. Be wary of their true aim and the molten edge of their blade. Finally, Titan is a Siege engine propelled by the rage of unending suns. Confronting them means giving up ground and igniting the tidal wave that will destroy everything.

Bungie has added new bundles with this new update, as usual.
