Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Gives Players Greater Control Over the Loot They Actually Want

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Gives Players Greater Control Over the Loot They Actually Want

Get the gear you want by participating in the Menagerie.

Bungie has announced the release date of its final content drop on its calendar. Titled "The Season of Opulence," the new months-long season will include new gear, new quests, and a new six-person matchmade mode called the "Menagerie."

It begins on June 4 when the Menagerie becomes available to season pass owners. The new Crown of Sorrows raid will follow six hours later so that fireteams will have a fair chance of having the honor of being the first to complete the new raid.

Players who beat the Forsaken campaign will also be allowed to play the Menagerie once as part of the Imperial Summons quest that will quickly get players up to power level 690. The new cap is 750, and players will need at least 690 power level gear to partake in the new events.

The brief trailer doesn't explain what the Menagerie is other than it's a six player PvE mode. Bungie says that the reward for completing the Menagerie is a new chalice item which players can then modify with runes to request specific loot. The chalice can also be upgraded for even greater rewards.

Other announcements in Bungie's new seasonal calendar include a Heroic Mode variant to the Menagerie that's coming out on June 25, a quest to get the Lumina hand cannon on July 2, and the Solstace of Heroes event on July 30.

The Season of Opulence is meant to go on through August, so there's still some bits of content Bungie is presumably keeping secret until the time is right. Either way, the big event this season appears to be the Menagerie and the event's ability to grant Guardians with all the loot and gear they desire.
