During the recently concluded Destiny 2 livestream, it was finally announced that Destiny 2’s next major expansion, The Witch Queen, will bring in Savathun on February 22, 2022.
We’ve heard about Savathun for the LONGEST time and now we finally get to see and do battle with her. Guardians will make their way through to Savathun’s Throneworld, the brand new area to explore and within it, new challenges that are shaping up to be one of the best build-ups to a boss encounter in recent memory.
Among the new enemies shown, Hive Guardians are particularly interesting because of the fact that they seem to mimic some Guardian attacks, abilities, and skills, making them formidable opponents.
Check out the reveal trailer below:
Included in The Witch Queen expansion will be a new Glaive melee weapon that features combos and even projectile attacks, which makes it an awesome addition to a Guardians’ arsenal. In fact, it will come with a first-person mode unlike the swords and will be “built”.
By built, Destiny 2 The Witch Queen expansion will finally introduce weapon crafting as well, and while we don’t know much about it yet, it’ll be another activity that Guardians can spend a lot of time on.
Shadowkeep almost brought me back to Destiny 2, and The Witch Queen might just make me take the full plunge.
Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Expansion is set to release on February 22, 2022.
