Destiny 2 Season 11, which has been shrouded in mystery for the past few months, finally has a name: ‘Season of Arrivals’. On top of that, a PlayStation leak also confirmed the new season’s official release time and potential storyline.

Little has been known about Destiny’s next season, beyond the possibility the franchise’s big bad guys The Darkness may finally arrive. Anticipation has been at an all-time high thanks to Bungie’s promise players would see “huge changes” in Season 11” and beyond.

Up until now, there’s been very little in the way of solid details, however. The season is less than 48 hours away. It’s the first time Bungie has truly kept Guardians in the dark ahead of a content drop. The mystery has even added to the hype.

It’s possible Destiny’s next drop could have arrived with Guardians still utterly clueless about what they were getting, if not for a major PlayStation Store leak. The new release will be called ‘Season of the Arrivals,’ the leak on the Australian PS4 store revealed.

The leak itself wasn’t much to look at ⁠— it’s a sale image for Destiny’s in-game currency with the season name ⁠— but it’s a whole lot more than we’ve gotten so far. Dark symbols buried in the radial also confirm Season 11’s major enemies: the Hive.

The Hive will take center stage in a Destiny expansion again for the first time since Shadowkeep.
The Hive will take center stage in a Destiny 2 expansion again for the first time since Shadowkeep.

Destiny hasn’t put the Hive front and center since the last major expansion in October last year, Shadowkeep. Considering the season name “Arrivals,” we could finally see the long-teased Hive Witch-Queen Savathûn actually arrive in-game.

The season name could also have something to do with Destiny’s first in-game event, which Bungie pulled off last week. Earth defense system Rasputin destroyed the Cabal warship known as the Almighty. Perhaps they brought reinforcements, or a new threat.

What we do know about the next season is there’ll be a hefty chunk of new seasonal content. That includes a battle pass, which should come with 2,300 Bright Dust and some Legendary Ornaments. There will also likely be new guns and cosmetics to unlock.

Destiny 2 ‘Season of Arrivals’ will go live on June 9 from 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST / 3am AEST. Maintenance will begin one hour before the season debuts. Bungie has predicted this could run in spurts for around five hours.

The new season release will come after Bungie’s highly-publicized livestream. The stream will begin at 12pm EDT on June 9. The ‘tell-all’ developer broadcast is expected to reveal the future of Destiny’s fourth year and next major expansion.


How to get Destiny 2’s new ‘Splintered’ Triumph title in Beyond Light

Destiny 2 has added another Triumph title, “Splintered,” to the collection in Year 4, and it’s going to take a fair bit of trekking across Europa to unlock; here’s how to get your hands on the shiny new Beyond Light reward in Season 12.

Triumph titles are the ultimate badge of honor in Destiny 2. The grind to unlock them ⁠— seasonal titles notwithstanding ⁠— can be immense, and Guardians know exactly who they’re dealing with if they see “Unbroken” or “Conqueror” floating above an enemy’s head.

Beyond Light has added another Triumph title to the pool too: “Splintered.” The badge of honor is named after the expansion’s frosty Stasis power, and once it’s unlocked, represents the completion of all things Year 4 in Destiny 2, so far.

Here’s how to get your hands on Destiny 2’s new “Splintered” title.

To earn the Beyond Light title, you must complete what the game lists as 45 full steps. That list is a little smaller than it seems, thankfully; all up, there’s actually only 11 challenges you’ll have to navigate to get your hands on the Guardian emblem.

  • Studying Darkness: Find all Entropic Shards scattered across Europa.
  • Europan Collector: Complete the Europan Collector badge.
  • Master of the Hunt: Elective-difficulty hunt complete.
  • Masterful Saboteur: Complete all Tier 3 Sabotage quests from Variks.
  • Solo Lost Sector Mastery: Complete any Europa Lost Sector on Master difficulty without a fireteam.
  • Fallen Brig Brigade: As a fireteam, defeat Fallen Brigs as part of the “Crux Convergence” Public Event.
  • Training Complete: Complete all Exo Challenges.
  • Born in Darkness: Complete “Born in Darkness” missions.
  • Reuniting the Eventide Rookery: Recover all the penguin toys on Europa.
  • Salvage of the Past: Find all dead Exo collectibles hidden across Europa.
  • Secret Triumph: This objective is hidden in-game.

Most of these Triumphs aren’t that difficult to complete, especially easier ones like the “Solo Lost Sector Mastery” and the Heroic event-based “Fallen Brig Brigade” challenge.

There are also three ‘treasure hunt’ type challenges involved in unlocking the Splintered title in Beyond Light. These do require a little bit of trotting around, digging through secret areas on Europa.

Here’s our guides on each of these individual Triumphs:

The final slog that comes with the “Splintered” grind is the ‘Europan Collector’ title Triumph. This is where the 45 challenges really come into play; Bungie sends you all over the new Beyond Light planet in search of enemies and challenges.

Unlike in the Season of Arrivals, Guardians will have to collect all the guns, armor pieces, and cosmetics from Beyond Light to unlock the Season 12 title.
