Destiny 2, With fewer than three weeks till the start of Season 18 and just over a week remaining for the Solstice event, Destiny 2’s Season of the Haunted is coming to an end. The sole knowledge concerning Season 18’s themes, characters, and where the plot will lead players is the Arc 3.0 update that will be released with it. But on August 23, when Season 18 will be launched, there will be a Destiny 2 presentation, and it’s probable that Bungie will then discuss the major theme of the next Season as well as that of the Lightfall expansion.
Bungie also announced as part of Destiny 2’s Year 5 that Duality, a new Dungeon, will debut in Season 17, a repeated Raid from Destiny would return in Season 18, and the year would conclude with yet another Dungeon in Season 19. Crota’s End is not included since it is on the shorter side, although Bungie has said that the replayed Raid will be one of the larger ones. Bungie has now revealed the exact date for the next legacy Raid’s return to the game with today’s TWAB.
The Season 18 replayed Raid was not mentioned in the TWAB, but it will be the second Destiny Raid to appear in Destiny 2, after the re-release of Vault of Glass in Season of the Splicer last year. They both rank among the most recognizable Raids in the history of the series, and the one that will return in Season 18 will debut on August 26 at 10 AM PT, as per the TWAB. Given the presentation on August 23, the decision to withhold the identity of the returning Raid seems understandable.
Although it may seem strange that Bungie chose to release the raid so early in the season, its Power Level requirement will be 1,560 on August 26, which is the first Friday of Season 18. However, both Contest Mode and Challenge Mode will return. It’s also probable that the rerun of the Raid will include a Master mode; however, if that turns out to be the case, players shouldn’t anticipate it until much later in the Season. Once again, the TWAB remains silent on this information, which may be made known at Destiny 2’s future showcase.
Bungie still employs TWABs to provide some of the most crucial pieces of Destiny 2 news, such as the impending Season 18 Raid’s release date, despite having curtailed engagement with fans due to threats against personnel. Players will probably have to wait until the August showcase for further information on the Raid, the Arc 3.0 upgrade, and Season 18 specifics.
