Destiny 2’s second expansion will release on May 8, Bungie has announced.
According to Bungie, Warmind “will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies. You’ll earn new loot and master new activities.” That is so vague I think I might just paste it into every game's DLC announcement.
Anyway, the studio teased the paid expansion as part of an updated development roadmap for Destiny 2 that covers Seasons Three and Season Four (which contain content available to all players for free).
In new roadmap, Faction Rallies improvements and exotic armour changes have been pushed back from the game’s 1.2 update to winter (local time).
In Season Three, all new Crucible Maps being developed for Warmind and all existing maps from first expansion Curse of Osiris will be added into matchmaking to keep the community unified.
However, with the arrival of Private Matches, players will need to purchase each Expansion to have exclusive access to play those Crucible maps with other players in a private match.
Bungie’s goal for Season Four, which is expected to launch in September, is to give players more control over how they configure loadouts, and to give them more reasons to play the game.
“We also want to bring back those exciting moments when you acquire the perfect weapon,” the studio said.
“To make this happen, updates like Weapon Randomization, Weapon Slot Changes, Gear Collections, and Records will be delivered to all players.”
