Hot off the heels of the Beyond Light Expansion announcement, Bungie has outlined more exciting DLC plans. In addition to Destiny 2 introducing Beyond Light, they announced ‘Season of the Hunt’ which reveals more content on the way. Some of it will even be free for players that don’t purchase the expansion – including new destinations and weapons.
