Bungie has recently talked about not wanting to introduce too many opportunities for FOMO, or fear of missing out, into Destiny 2 with its new approach to seasonal content. That said, it looks like Bungie's gearing up to close out the Season of the Worthy with some grand spectacle, and players will want to be logged in when it happens.
On Twitter, Bungie's teasing what's likely an in-game event happening tomorrow, June 6, at 10 a.m. PT. "Rasputin is at full power," the post reads, and tomorrow we'll be seeing the enigmatic Warmind's power unleashed against the Almighty.
Even if you've not been keeping up with Destiny 2 much since its initial release, you'll probably recognize both Rasputin and the Almighty. Introduced in the first Destiny, Rasputin is a defense AI from before humanity's collapse. Over the years, Rasputin has slowly taken on more prominence in Destiny's plot, with one of the major teases leading up to the Season of the Worthy seeing one character question whose side the Warmind is really on.
The Almighty, a massive Cabal spaceship, holds the solar superweapon commanded by Dominus Ghaul in Destiny 2's original story campaign. The second-to-last mission of that campaign sees players destroying the weapon and disabling the ship, leaving it derelict in orbit around our Sun. Unfortunately for the Guardians and the rest of Earth's inhabitants, one Cabal managed to set The Almighty on a collision course with The Last City. It has been approaching Earth ever since, and has recently become visible from the City's social hub.
Will this turn out to be a one-and-done cutscene, or could Bungie be taking a page out of Epic's book with a live, in-game event? Players will have to load up Destiny 2 tomorrow in order to find out.
However it plays out, it seems likely that this event will lead directly into Bungie's reveal for "the future of Destiny 2" planned for 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 9. It seems like that will provide our first look at Destiny 2's next major expansion, and with the ominous threat that reared its head in Shadowkeep's campaign slowly encroaching on the solar system, a bigger threat than The Almighty is probably just around the corner. We may also learn more about Bungie's plans for Destiny 2 on next-gen from the reveal.
