Destiny 2: Forsaken is live (and Cayde-6 is not)

It's a bad day for Cayde-6, but a good one for Destiny fans, as the long-awaited Destiny 2: Forsaken is now live.   

The expansion delivers a grim new tale of space justice, a new multiplayer mode, and most importantly of all, a game that's worth a second chance. There may be some bumps in the early going, as Bungie warned that sign-in queues may occur as a result of heavy demand, but community manager David "DeeJ" Dague said the support team is ready for it. 

If you haven't already seen it and can't dive into Forsaken yourself right now, you can watch the first story mission from the expansion (which, sorry to say, includes Cayde's Very Bad Day) right here. You can also check out the Forsaken patch notes and post-launch plans, and if you need assistance, you can find it in Bungie's help forum.
