Destiny 2 is barrelling towards Season 11 this month, but talk has already pivoted to what may be coming in the title’s annual expansion set to release this Fall. According to a new leaked teaser, Guardians could be going to Europa.

On June 9, Bungie’s space opera franchise will be entering its 11th season. There’s not a lot known about the new content drop, but many Destiny fans expect it will be focused around another battle at the Tower, and the Darkness.

In the buildup to the new seasonal swap over, Bungie made a small mistake. They hit ‘go live’ on Instagram accidentally, and sent out a new Year 4 teaser trailer. Understandably, the new teaser was hooked by the devs nearly immediately. Luckily for fans, it just wasn’t quick enough.

Destiny 2 Fall expansion to add ‘Europa’ destination

The new trailer shows a short, fifteen-second clip of Eris Morn battling through the ice and snow of a new location we haven’t seen yet in Destiny. It’s most likely Europa, considering we can see a looming Jupiter in the background.

This lines up with leaks that spilled out online late last year that suggested Destiny 3 would be heading to Europa. That looks to have been switched to Destiny 2 Year 4, according to the now-delisted teaser trailer.

Earlier this season, another leaked cutscene showed Guardians would be heading to Jupiter to do battle with the Darkness Pyramids floating around the gas giant. This suggests we may finally lock horns with Destiny’s big bad in Year 4.

On top of that, the fact we’re heading to an entirely new moon or planet once Season 12 rolls around all but confirms Bungie will be adding a new patrol zone too. The Dreaming City was the last new major area added to the franchise. It landed in Forsaken. The Moon was re-added in Shadowkeep.

Destiny 2 Year 4 reveal stream date confirmed

The leaked teaser also has another hefty slice of information for eager Guardians: the Year 4 reveal looks set to premiere on June 9. This is just hours before Season 11 is expected to go live in-game. The stream will go live at 9pm PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST / 2am AEST.

There has been no indication this stream will specifically be about Year 4, of course. The fact it comes just 60 minutes before Season 11 drops, however, means it’s likely it isn’t going to be a teaser for the next Destiny 2 season.

More information on Destiny 2 Year 4 should be available alongside the Season 11 release later this month.

All of this also lines up with Bungie’s declaration in the latest This Week At Bungie that the devs would be revealing “how Year 4 begins” with new information “very soon.”

Bungie community manager David Dague promised more would come soon. “You must be curious as to when we’ll begin a conversation about what is next. We can’t put a date on that just yet, but we will very soon… that’s a promise.”

It may not have been planned, but Destiny’s Instagram teaser has gone a ways to fulfilling that promise. The teaser will officially debut in soon enough. Once it does, Destiny fans will finally get to hear more about Year 4 come June 9.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is jam-packed with awesome content right out of the gate, but everyone gets stuck somewhere, and the Technocrat Empire Hunt has proven to be a difficult hurdle to climb. Here’s how to finish it once and for all.

The Technocrat Empire Hunt in Destiny 2: Beyond Light pits players against Praksis, the Technocrat. He is a Fallen from the House of Salvation and trusted lieutenant for Eramis, Kell of Darkness.

Praksis, The Technocrat will do anything to support Eramis and his malicious cause, which puts him on a collision course with Destiny 2: Beyond Light players. It all comes together in the Technocrat Empire Hunt, where players have a chance to eliminate him once and for all.

However, it’s easier said than done. He is extremely powerful, and before you reach him, you’ll need to take on some lesser enemies and finish a series of tasks. 

Here’s everything players will need to know, including a step-by-step guide, some tips for the fight, and what you’ll get once you manage to beat him.

How To Complete The Technocrat Empire Hunt

  • First, make sure you have a power level of at least 1120.
  • Then, locate and enter Bray Exoscience.
  • In typical Destiny 2 fashion, you’ll have to work your way through waves of enemies and take on Fallen Brigs.
  • Next, you’ll need to destroy some shield generators, which will help weaken Praksis, The Technocrat ahead of the final showdown.
  • From there, you’ll have nothing left to do but come face to face with Praksis, The Technocrat and take him down.

Tips To Make The Fight Easier

Praksis, The Technocrat is no slouch. He’s even harder than Phylaks, The Warrior, which many players struggled with.

Luckily, there are some tips you can follow to make it easier.

  • Start moving around the tower the moment the fight begins, and don’t stop until he is toast.
  • Praksis, The Technocrat is a skilled Stasis wilder. He has a series of abilities that deal devastating amounts of damage, especially against players with lower skill levels.
  • He also has a shield, and when he uses it, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the red generators floating in the air and destroy them.
  • When in doubt, don’t forget to use the empowering pool at the entrance to the arena. It will give you rechargeable Stasis abilities that are extremely useful throughout the fight.

Once you’ve managed to beat him, you can return to the Europa camp.

Players who finish The Technocrat Empire Hunt will receive an awesome weapon, the Coriolis Force Legendary Fusion Rifle. It is extremely fast and powerful and shoots a horizontal volley of Void bolts.

The Coriolis Force Fusion Rifle packs a punch in PvE, especially when equipped with perks like One for All and Thresh. It can one-shot enemies in PvP too, but only from close range due to its unique spread. Think of it more like a shotgun.
