Perhaps it's related to Bungie's newfound independent status of last year, but the Seattle studio has been more communicative than ever with Destiny 2's playerbase. Key to the information flow is the Destiny 2 roadmap, which Bungie just updated to disseminate details about the next season of Destiny 2 content.

Season of Arrivals, which launched on June 9, is adding new PvE events and a dungeon. More interesting are new story elements that set the stage for Destiny 2's upcoming expansion, Beyond Light, which is now scheduled for November 10th. Season of Arrivals isn't the biggest update to date, but what's coming looks pretty fun.

Season of Arrivals is Destiny 2's next season in Year 3. There's definitely some cool stuff on the horizon, but the really exciting news is that Season of Arrivals will directly lead into a brand new expansion later this year: Beyond Light.

As for right now, Season of Arrivals is launching with a new Contact event on IO, a new PvE activity. There's also the Prophecy Dungeon, which is free for all players. In July, new Triumphs are dropping along with new seals. On August 11, the free Solstice of Heroes event kicks off free for all players. It's not the most dramatic content drops, but it should be enough to hold players over until Beyond Light.

  • June 9: Contact Event on IO
  • June 9: Prophecy Dungeon - Free for all players
  • June 9: Mission Interference and Weekly Quests
  • July 7: Moments of Triumph - New triumphs and seals
  • August 11: Solstice of Heroes event - Free for all players
  • October 6: Festival of the Lost event - Free for all players

The Witherhoard, Season of Arrival's new exotic, is a very good-lookin grenade launcher.
