Destiny 2: Shadowkeep's Moon Is Looking Really Creepy

Guardian: Moon's haunted.

Earth's moon has definitely seen better days than those coming to Destiny 2. Over the weekend, we got a glimpse at what the lunar sphere looks like in the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion, and it's looking suitably creepy.

Taking place on an old haunt, Shadowkeep changes things up a bit by showing an infestation of the moon by the Hive. This is the first time Destiny 2 players will head to the moon since the first game, and it looks like things have gone downhill.

At GuardianCon over the weekend, Bungie showed a quick montage of the new areas. (It was clipped to YouTube by a fan.) You can check out the eerie hallways, imposing totems, and all those spiky bits below.

Thankfully, an ally will return to help us out. Eris Morn is the major guiding NPC for this expansion, helping lead us through this darker side of the moon. It's nice to see her back in a major role again.

Since Bungie left Activision with Destiny in tow, things have been looking up for the Destiny team. The game is going free-to-play and finally implementing cross-save across all platforms, bringing it up to snuff with modern multiplayer standards. It seems there's another Destiny renaissance on its way, and I'm very excited to finally dip back in and see what I've missed out on since the launch of the second game. We'll see if it holds up on September 17, when Destiny 2 launches all its major steps forward alongside Shadowkeep.
