Destiny 2The final season of, Season of the Wish, is almost here.
If you haven’t heard that Bungie was wrapping up season releases for the game, don’t panic. This could be Destiny 2‘s final season, but only because Bungie is changing the game to an episodic model once final form The expansion launches on February 27, 2024.
With the release of Season of the Wish, Bungie looks to end the seasons in style. In addition to dealing with the Fifteenth Wish (a story thread left over five years ago), Guardians can get some nice Witcher-themed armor, an in-game LFG, and some long-awaited stasis upgrades. Here’s a breakdown of the Season of Desire details that Bungie revealed in his blog on Wednesday.
Before getting into any of the big changes in Destiny 2 In Season of the Wish, it’s important to address the announcement that everyone really cares about: the super cool Witcher armor sets (seen above).
Each class’s armor set is inspired by Geralt of Rivia’s usual outfit: each with their own wolf pendant and double swords on their back. It looks like there’s also a Witcher-inspired shell and ghost ship. Bungie hasn’t revealed pricing yet, but these collaborations tend to be very expensive. The other collaborative armor sets (Fortnite, Sony’s first-party games, and Assassin’s Creed) cost 2,000 Silver. per class. That’s $20 in real money, or $60 if you want all three classes.
In other news, the long-awaited in-game party finder is finally coming. Destiny 2 in Season of the Wish, although not exactly when players thought. Bungie announced on Wednesday that the LFG system will initially launch in beta during the Season of Desire, and that has some limitations.
The first trial period for the LFG will be on November 30 and will only be available for raids. It appears that, contrary to the original plan, the party finder will not be available for the launch of the new dungeon on December 1st.
Still, Bungie is trying to stay flexible with the beta. Assuming all goes well on the 30th, the full beta experience will launch in December. Bungie plans to speed up or delay LFG depending on how testing goes and now hopes to fully launch the feature in January.
In Season of the Wish, and again in the next final form Update: Bungie is looking to adjust Stasis to bring it back in line with the game’s other powers. For Season of the Wish, that means touching up most abilities to make them more reliable and altering Shards to be less stat-pushing.
As for the future, Bungie teased a new Stasis keyword called “Frost Armor,” which is designed to help keep players safe while running Stasis, a major issue with the current iteration of the power set.
The last thing worth mentioning here is that Bungie is nerfing both Ward of Dawn and Well of Radiance, increasing the cooldowns of Support Supers by about 40 seconds each. This nerf also comes with a threatening message regarding both Supers, and Bungie has bigger rework plans for sometime in the future. The post specifically points out Well of Radiance as a problem child in Destiny that allows players to be overconfident in otherwise dangerous situations.
All these changes and additions will come to Destiny 2 during Season of the Wish, which hits live servers on November 28.
