Bungie have revealed a teaser trailer and roadmap for the upcoming new season of content for their multiplayer shooter Destiny 2, titled Season of Dawn.

Season of Dawn is just around the corner, as the Season of the Undying comes to a close, and Bungie have laid out their roadmap for the next season. Here’s everything you need to know about the next set of content.

When does it release?

The Season of Dawn officially starts on December 10, with content being spread out all the way through March. On day one, all players will get access to a new seasonal artifact called the Lantern of Osiris, an update to the Solar Subclass, the return of Elimination PvP mode, and public events called Obelisks.

There’s a new PvE mode called Sundial, available only to season pass members, and the first boss in that mode, Niruul, will be available on day one. There will also be a new campaign mission where you’re charged with dinging a great Titan named Saint-14.

What is Elimination?


Elimination is a returning PvP mode that was introduced in the original Destiny game and instantly became a fan favorite. Elimination was removed from Destiny 2, resulting in an outcry from the community and even a couple of petitions to bring it back.

For those unfamiliar with it, it is essentially team deathmatch but without respawns, only reviving from other teammates. Elimination will be made available to all players on launch day; you do not need the season pass.

What is The Sundial?


The Sundial is a new PvE mode for groups of six players to tackle together. The Sundial takes place on Mercury, and according to the developers in the recent reveal stream, allow players to jump through timelines throughout the ordeal.

It seems like The Sundial may have a rotating set of bosses, as more Sundial bosses will be added to the game throughout the season. The Sundial is only available to season pass players.

What are Obelisks?

Bungie.The Tangled Shore. Introduced in the Forsaken expansion.

Very little seems to be known about Obelieks, but they appear to be some public event set on multiple planets. Lore-wise, it seems you will be helping Osiris by restoring them across four planets.

The first set of Obelisks will be available on launch day, on The Tangled Shore and Mars. They open up on Nessus and the EDZ the next week, on December 17, along with the new campaign mission and one of the new Sundial bosses.

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.
