Destiny 2 Beyond Light will kick off Year 4 of the game on November 10th, bringing with it new exotic gear and weapons, a new Stasis subclass for Hunter, Titan and Warlock—and new antagonist Eramis, leader of The Fallen. Season of the Hunt follows closely after, with activities launching on November 17th, bringing a new set of story missions, Wrathborn Hunts, and various other updates through the end of the year.

Bungie has released the initial roadmap for the season, saying that there's yet more to come in Season of the Hunt. It has also doubled down on the pledge to alleviate FOMO that plagued prior seasons, saying that "most of the Seasonal content and all of the sweet gear will be sticking around for all of year 4."

Beyond Light launches on November 10th with Stasis subclass unlocks the Tian Behemoth, Warlock Shadebinder, and Hunter Revenant. The quest for Exotic grenade launcher Salvation's Grip will appear on that day too. 

For all players, November 10th will bring the new destination Europa along with:

  • New cosmodrome experience

  • New strike added to playlist

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
