Destiny 2: Forsaken has made the franchise bigger and better than ever before, with more to come in the year ahead.
Whether you’re new to Destiny or a veteran Guardian, this guide will cover any and all things Forsaken and beyond as we follow the Destiny 2 roadmap.
Here you’ll find guides and walkthroughs for specific missions, how to find Exotic weapons and how to really boost those Power level numbers. We’ve tried to avoid spoilers for the main campaign for the most part and will be sure to flag any pages that might ruin your immersion.
If you’re still unsure if Destiny 2 is the game for you, then check out our Destiny 2: Forsaken review.
Destiny 2: Year 3 roadmap
Shadowkeep is the Year 3 expansion coming in September this year. You’ll be returning to the moon and you can expect to see a new dungeon, raid, Exotics and more. There will also be the Destiny 2: New Light entry point option, which makes it free-to-play, providing no barriers to players. Players will start off at a higher Light level, to minimise grind and to be able to start playing with others after the first 15 minutes.

Cross-save will be possible across all platforms in Year 3, including on Google Stadia.

Th Two-Tailed Fox is particularly useful in PvP, so keep your eye out for it dropping.

The weekly Ascendant Challenge can be acquired from Petra Venj in the Dreaming City.
