Forsaken Campaign will be remove by Destiny 2 next year
Bungie has reported the amount of Destiny 2’s Forsaken development will be vaulted when the following extension, The Witch Queen, shows up the following year.
As of 22nd February, 2021, Forsaken’s mission, the Tangled Shore destination and the majority of Year 4’s occasional substance – including the fan-most loved Presage and Harbinger missions – will be taken out from the game.
Bungie explained not all Forsaken’s substance will vanish – with the Dreaming City destination, Last Wish attack, Shattered Throne prison and related Strikes remaining in the game – while Year 4’s Proving Grounds strike and Battlegrounds will remain.
“Vaulting this substance will permit us the space to dispatch The Witch Queen development and its new Throne World destination, just as new provisions like weapon crafting, the new Legendary trouble crusade choice, the new Glaive weapon model, in addition to all the extra substance we have gotten ready for the four new Seasons to come starting in February,” Bungie explained in a blog entry.
In front of the vaulting, Bungie is making the Forsaken lobby free for all players from seventh December through to the Witch Queen’s appearance, and that a ‘Spurned Pack’ will be made accessible for players to get to any remaining substance – like Last Wish and Shattered Throne, just as Year 2 Exotics – going ahead.
In an interview with Eurogamer recently, senior supervisor Justin Truman affirmed intends to vault parts of Forsaken, pointing to the new disarray with character Uldren (who plays a huge part to play in Forsaken) as motivation to “minister” what stays in Destiny 2.
“I think similarly we don’t need eight strikes, it’s exactly the same thing with storylines – we don’t need when another player goes into Destiny, there’s five distinctive competing storylines that they could begin playing and in some of them, Uldren’s a hero, and in some of them he’s a miscreant, and it’s not satisfactory in case you’re playing them messed up.”
Destiny 2 initially started vaulting substance in late 2020 with the expulsion of five destinations, seven strikes, 11 Crucible guides and five assaults, with Bungie saying the plans gave “a lot of specialized ‘breathing room’ that the group has committed to significant enhancements to the Destiny experience”.
The appearance of the ‘content vault’ has seen Bungie reintroduce things also, with the Cosmodrome and Vault of Glass returning this previous year, and plans to bring another attack, two Crucible guides from Destiny 2 and another from the original Destiny to the game from Year 5 onwards.
