Destiny 2 adding crossplay and return of old events

The developers at Bungie will have some major news about the upcoming season during the Destiny 2 Showcase. This includes the addition of crossplay, announced months ago. Recently, they have tested it with some players in the game, and it will officially arrive in Season 15. Over the course of this year, Bungie will rollout all the crossplay features of the game.

Along with that, we might also see the return of the Moments of Triumph event this year as players wait for the Witch Queen Expansion, set to arrive early next year. Other than that, events like the Festival of the Lost will also make a triumphant return. The Dawning may return as well if Destiny 2 will have an extended Season 15 till the impending arrival of the game’s next expansion.

Additionally, Vanguard will also undergo some major tweaking in Season 15. The developers revealed in a recent This Week At Bungie post that it will now follow the Crucible and Gambit ranking system. It also stated that Trials of Osiris will also be integrated with this system later in the season. Other than that, the developers will also improve the Armor Synthesis system as well with the removal of Synthstrands.

Massive gameplay changes from the developers

Following the release of Beyond Light, the developers have added Stasis weapons to the game. There hasn’t been a lot of them and Season 15 will change that with the addition of new weapons with the Stasis Elemental damage. Along with that, Bungie will also fix a major issue of players three-peeking to see around walls in the Crucible. Until now, players used emotes and Swords to see other players and it will receive a fix first in modes like Trials.

There will be massive Sandbox changes as well with tweaks to many of the players’ favorite exotics. Meta weapons like the Anarchy will receive a heavy nerf which should excite fans to try out new things. The Light subclass will also receive some changes similar to the one Stasis got in Season of the Splicer. With buffs to this subclass, players will be encouraged to try them out over Stasis.
