Seasons of Destiny

October 21, 2017


 Note: Concept Art, Not actually Seasonal artwork



Torch has been passed from team who made Destiny 2 to the team that is maintaining (The Live Team)

  • Live Team's goals:

    • New reasons to keep playing

    • New pursuites, rituals, and challenges.

    • And more..

    • Examples: Iron Banner, Faction Rally's, etc.

  • Expansion 1 - Winter 2017 aka Osiris DLC



  • Max level so that old/smaller clans have a chance vs only larger more active clans to dominate. Keeps everything on a more fair level.

  • Seasons have themes associated with them. They take feedback from the community for adding and adjusting things such as new emotes, rewards, etc.




  • More predictable time tables (what to expect and when)

  • Destiny 2 year 1: 4 seasons

  • Make big changes to the game

  • Sandbox tuning, new features, more content

  • Big patches to change the meta, etc.

  • Meant so you don't feel like you have to play Destiny ALL the time.

Season 2: The Dawning


  • Season 2: The Dawning will make a return shortly after the launch.

  • Ice Hockey will be enabled

  • Other Easter Eggs

  • You can have snowball fights

  • Event affects will be throughout the world, not just the social space.

  • Armor, Weapons, Shaders, and possibly emotes will come





Iron Banner


  • 1,500 YEARS worth of time played between all guardians.

  • Learned how we interacted with the loot system. Will be changes to loot such as letting us direct purchase guns via tokens and legendary shards.

  • The token economy is not always the best way for everything.

  • Unlock ornaments via gameplay vs tokens for some events in the future.

  • Heard community feedback of wanting rewards more meaningful.

  • One more Iron Banner in Season 1.

  • For Season 2, there will be an ornaments slot requiring an objective to unlock to show that you completed a limited event objective.

  • Perks and stats will be updated.

  • There will be a complimentary energy and kinetic weapon so you can have one of each.
