Guardians, if you’ve put down Destiny 2 recently in favor of other games, Bungie wants you to come back on March 5th when the Season of the Drifter begins.
Today, Bungie posted an updated Season of the Drifter roadmap and an 8-minute ViDoc detailing the new season, which you can view below:
Season of the Drifter begins at weekly reset next week, that’s Tuesday, March 5th with new content available for owners of Destiny 2, Forsaken, and of course the Annual Pass. There’s a power increase, new pinnacle weapons, a new pinnacle PvE activity for four players, and a new pinnacle version of Gambit called Gambit Prime. Thorn is returning, Xur is getting bounties beginning March 15th, there’s two new Gambit maps and Private Gambit matches, something called Arc Week, and a new seasonal event called The Reverly.
The Allegiance quest, previously forecast as the Joker’s Wild weekly quest, will invite you to choose between the Vanguard and the Drifter. Pick a side to progress through the quest from their perspective. This pledge is character based, so if you have more than one Guardian, you can play both sides. Choose wisely!
Invitations of the Nine, once upon a time referred to as Xûr Bounties, will be an exploration of the Nine and their mysterious place in the universe.
The path begins with Xûr on Friday, March 15. Annual Pass owners will be able to pick up an “Invitation of the Nine” from Xûr. Once the objectives are completed, it will transform into a bounty called “Into the Unknown.” These will be available to complete once per character, similar to the bounties you got at the beginning of Forsaken for completing an activity with a full gear set. Week over week, for Nine weeks, you’ll collect new lore and powerful rewards.
For Annual Pass holders, the rest of the Season of the Drifter packs in new combat specialties to embrace and new challenges to master. Like Season of the Forge, this journey will roll out over time, but the Drifter has plenty of action for players to experience on day one. If you think your Power is low and you want to get caught up to the rest of the community, see the Drifter to complete his new Power Surge Bounties. There are enough of them to bring your level-50 characters up to 640 Power.
Here is a more in-depth view of what you can expect during the Season of the Drifter.
