Destiny 2's New Light edition will launch on the same day as the Shadowkeep expansion, September 17. Armor 2.0 allows you to take the mods you've unlocked and apply them to any piece of armour, while Guardians now boast new Finishing Moves to use against weakened enemies. Destiny 2 is no longer offered (only) through the Battle.net, instead Steam is the new home.

According to the company, cross save has been one of the most important aspects that they've been aspiring to achieve over the past year.

That's not all though. It appears as though players' gear will now incorporate more mod slots and you'll be able to slot in multiple types to create much more bespoke build. Bungie talked about how in the past it had shied away from the MMORPG label, but was now doubling down on depth and detail. In addition, it also contains snippets of content reminiscent of the first Destiny game, such as the player waking up in the Cosmodrome.

But Bungie says this is "just building the foundation of what we're doing with the Crucible going forward". Check out the official site for New Light, here. Then, new seasons will launch at regular intervals, as they have for the past six months, but purchaseable individually, as opposed to as a bulk Annual Pass. You won't need previous expansions to access Shadowkeep, which reinforces Bungie's plan to sell future updates as standalone releases that players can pick and choose from. This version will feature all year-one content freely, including foundational modes, activities, and rewards. Google revealed Stadia's price and release window, as well as the list of games launching on the platform day one.

"Bungie's always been at the forefront of exploring new ways to bring our games to our players", added executive publishing producer Poria Tarkan. As a longtime MMO skeptic, I never thought I'd get this invested in a single game, but here we are. Well today Bungie sat down with viewers to not only talk about their upcoming expansion "Shadowkeep", but also talk about what a Bungie-lead Destiny world looks like in the larger scale. Additionally, we will get installments of lore-heavy in-game snippets in "Shadowkeep" similar to what we got for Mara Sov in "Forsaken". Rumours circulated over the last week this would be the case, and Bungie confirmed this new version of the game would be called Destiny 2: New Light.
