Bungie has provided a roadmap of content for Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter.

Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter kicks off next week and it looks as though players will have plenty to do, going by the roadmap.

Like Season of the Forge, Season of the Drifter will run for 90 days. It will feature all sorts of content ranging from Annual Pass content to the Arc Week event.

One cool feature coming with Season of the Drifter is the new Power Surge bounties. These allow you to earn level 640 gear without having to slog through the questlines. Just know these sound a bit like fetch quests.

We’ve pulled information out of the roadmap for you and posted it below.

Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter Roadmap

Gambit Prime

Looking over the roadmap, starting on March 5 pass holders can take part in Gambit Prime, which launches with the New Arcadia (Mars) map. A second map, Deep Six (Titan), will be released March 12. March 19 will see the Legion’s Folly (Nessus) map added to Gambit Prime. The Emerald Coast Map (Earth) arrives on March 26.

The Reckoning

Four-player PvE mode The Reckoning will arrive on March 5 and a tier two difficultly version will go live on March 8. Tier three will go live on March 15.

Allegiance Quest

Come March 12, all players can choose between either the Drifter or Vanguard when the Allegiance quest goes live. This is character based, so make sure you are comfortable with the side you choose. Or just side with the other on a different character. This questline seems tied to Thorn going by the roadmap image. We’re curious whether it’s been nerfed since it’s first appearance.

The hand cannon’s return mirrors that of The Last Word, which returned to the game back in January with The Draw exotic questline.

 

Invitations of the Nine

Starting March 15, Invitations of the Nine go live and task you with completing bounties to learn more about the Nine and their place in the universe. Once upon a time referred to as Xer Bounties, Pass holders should have a chat with the man himself to start the questline, which will last for nine weeks.

And more

Looking further ahead in Season of the Drifter, pass holders will be able to learn new combat specialties and face new challenges. As you can see in the roadmap, all of this content will roll out over time. But there’s plenty for those who aren’t Annual Pass holders too, in the form of smaller updates, a new festival called The Revelry, Iron Banner, a week dedicated to all things Arc, Gambit maps, and of course, the power cap increase.

Again, Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter launches next week on March 5.  You can look over the roadmaps for the new season and Season of Opulence, which kicks off in June, below.
