Destiny 2: Forsaken opens with a jailbreak in the Prison of Elders, and the latest cinematic shows Cayde’s last stand.

Bungie took the Blizzard stage at gamescom 2018 today to not only show a new cinematic, but to provide folks at look Gambit mode, and some of the Exotics in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

As shown in the cinematic below, Cayde-6 doesn’t go down without a fight, despite being smashed around, and then eventually  through a wall. There were some really sad moments in the dialogue, too. Poor Cayde.

Guardians, go kill all those bastards painfully, please.

Destiny 2: Forsaken will feature Gambit, the new PvPvE mode, and the stage show provided a recap on how the Motes system works.

It was also announced a Gambit event will take place on September 1. It will last one-day only and will be available for all Destiny 2 players on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

  • Starts: September 1 at 10am PT, 1pm ET,6pm BST, 7pm CEST
  • Ends: September 2 10am PT, 1pm ET,6pm BST, 7pm CEST

During the Gambit trial, the new weapons system will also be in place, so you’ll be able to try things out on that end a few days ahead of time.
