Destiny 2 Season of Opulence

Destiny 2 is preparing to launch it's next game defining DLC release, Season of Opulence. The last slice of year 2 content promised by Bungie will deliver a lot for fans of the long-running shooter.

Bungie has already promised "new challenges, loot, and lore" alongside an action-packed roadmap of content.

"Seasonal ranks for ritual activities will be reset once more, with a fresh set of Pinnacle weapons available to earn," teased the team in a blog post. "The Iron Banner will be updated with a seasonal Quest to unlock armor. This summer, the Solstice of Heroes event returns with new rewards."

This is, however, just the tip of the iceberg. There's so much more on top. A new raid, more end-game content, the new 6v6 Managerie mode and that's before we get to all the juicy extra's the devs will sprinkle on top.

Two hours later and Destiny 2 should hopefully be ready to play again, with Season of Opulence live. This shall be Destiny 2 update 2.5.0.1.
