While Bungie has become more open in sharing its plans for updates for Destiny 2, word on the game’s second DLC expansion has been scant. Now, the studio has finally provided a name and release date for DLC 2: Warmind officially launches on May 8.
Unfortunately, details on what Warmind actually consists of haven’t yet been shared. That information will start to be shared on April 24, when Bungie hosts a reveal livestream. For now, all we know is what you’d expect–the DLC “will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies,” and there will be new loot and activities introduced, according to a post on Bungie’s website.
Warmind’s release will coincide with that of Season 3 for Destiny 2. Bungie updated its roadmap for the future of the game, and we know that this update will add seasonal Crucible rankings, private matches, an increase to vault space, support for multiple equipped emotes, Exotic weapon Masterworks, and more. Later in the summer, Season 3 will also bring bounties, a new seasonal event, Faction Rally improvements, and changes to the Exotic armor sandbox. Season 4 in September will bring gear collections, weapon slot changes, and more.
Season 3 also marks a significant change to how Crucible content is handled. All new maps from Warmind (and the Curse of Osiris DLC before it) will be available in matchmaking to all players, whether or not they own the DLC. However, to play the maps in the newly added private matches, you’ll have to purchase the DLC.
