Destiny 2 Getting New Warmind Expansion, Additional Updates Detailed

Weapon slots and Weapon randomization are also scheduled for 2018.

Bungie surprise announced the second expansion for Destiny 2 alongside today's updated development roadmap. The expansion will be called "Warmind" and will release on May 8, the same time as the start of Destiny 2's season three.

The Warmind expansion will, according to Bungie, "send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies. You'll earn new loot and master new activities." A pretty good way of saying new content all around.

You'll get the full details during a stream on April 24 where we will hopefully learn about these new enemies, new characters, and new activities actually are. No word on what time the stream will begin.

Season three will deliver content to all players, including releasing all the new Crucible maps developed for Warmind into matchmaking. That goes the same for maps released with Curse of Osiris. This is to ensure that the Crucible community is unified. Not only that but the new arenas in playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, Iron Banner, and weekly rotations will be for everyone.

The full roadmap shares details that extend all the way to the start of season four in September which includes Weapon Slot changes and Weapon Randomization, two features that disappeared in Destiny 2 but players demanded for their return.

It's interesting that Bungie seems to be bringing a lot of features back from the first Destiny like Weapon Randomization and Weapon Slots, something we've outlined as good steps to fixing Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 has hit a rough patch as of late with players issuing more grievances with the game than engagement. Bungie admitted that players wanted change and have created an update that makes the game faster and more exciting for big hero moments. With the latest expansion imminent it will be interesting to see how players respond to Bungie's overtures.
