Destiny 2 The Final Shape: Platforms

Destiny 2 The Final Shape: Story

Destiny 2 The Final Shape is set to be the conclusion to the Light and Darkness Saga of the game. During the expansion, Guardians will enter inside the Traveler and protect it from the clutches of The Witness.

The Traveler’s insides are filled with greenery and life and during their journey, Guardians will learn the meaning of their existence. They will understand why everything has happened so far and thereby put an end to The Witness’s atrocities.

Players will join hands with comrades such as Zavala and Ikora and Cayde-6 will make a return after being dead since Forsaken.

Destiny 2 The Final Shape: Gameplay

Destiny 2 The Final Shape will take place inside the Traveler. It will be a brand new destination and the story will not end with the campaign. Instead, the ultimate story will end with the raid as the developers want to make it a complete experience.

It is also important to remember here that The inner parts of the Traveler will be similar to what players have experienced so far. It will be as if the Traveler is recreating things that the Guardians have experienced so far.

Lastly, there will be new enemies called The Subjugators. These enemies will use Strand and Stasis subclass and will make sure they stop the Guardians at any cost.

Destiny 2 The Final Shape: New Supers

New Light supers are being introduced alongside The Final Shape

Destiny 2 The Final Shape is introducing Three New Light supers in the game, one for each class.

The Warlock Super is a callback to Radiance from Destiny 1 and is part of the Solar subclass. This super will allow players to buff allies, deal massive damage through a ranged melee ability and burn down enemies with a brand-new aspect that functions similarly to an Arc Soul. The exact ability of the Super is unknown yet.

The Titan Super called Twilight Arsenal is part of the Void Subclass and it allows players to literally use an Axe. This Axe can be consistently thrown at the enemy and picked up. Once thrown it reciprocates all the abilities known to the Void subclass (volatile rounds as well).

The Hunter super is that of the Arc subclass and is all about speed. In this super, the Hunter throws an Arc Knife and teleports to the location. Once the player teleports, they will unleash Arc damage like a spinning top and destroy all enemies in the vicinity. This Knife can be used three times.
