Destiny 2: Beyond the Light Expectations

by Zaraki Kenpachi

Gaming has never been better with the Destiny 2 Expansions. If you’ve been following up, you may discover some hype around the new release. Beyond the Lights is coming up in a short time, and we need to know what to expect. This Destiny 2 review will let you in on some of the vital points to note about this revolutionary expansion before playing the game.

Certainly, Beyond the Light will be a significant improvement in the previous expansions. What are the things that may change in this game? Well, in this article, you will get to find that out as well. According to Bungie, we know that they should delay the game by seven weeks. Even though it’s just two months of delay, our expectations are high. Before delving into the game details, what is the release date of this top-notch game?

Destiny 2: Beyond the Light Release Date

Traditionally, Bungie has an act of releasing their expansions around September. However, to our surprise, the story seems to have changed for this game. Initially, Bungie should have released the game in September, but it was postponed. Now, we expect the launch of this sci-fi MMO shooter on 10th November 2024.

According to a post released, the delay is due to the commencement of a significant change. Bungie calls it the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. For this reason, we should expect the best possible experience on the Beyond the Light release date.

The storyline of Destiny 2: Beyond the Light

Interestingly, Beyond the Light is a crucial expansion of the game for specific reasons. It’s the start of a new era of Darkness for Destiny 2. Just like Bungie stated, Beyond the Light is the beginning of something new in the game. Hence, the story will play out in more expansions over time.

For this game, the central new location is Europa. It’s a big icy tundra with open landscapes. From the Beyond the Light trailer, players will enter into sites produced by the Vex, the Fallen, and Clovis Bray corporations, the Exo program makers. Besides, The Stranger makes her victorious return to the game, alongside The Drifter and Eris Morn.

More Expectations on Destiny 2: Beyond the Light

We have a pretty good amount of information about exciting things coming up in the game. There’s more to expect than the new locations. For instance, did you know that there is a brand new element coming to Beyond the Light? It’s okay if you haven’t heard anything about those details. In this section, we’d shed more light on the various things coming to Destiny 2.

The New Element

As a gamer, nothing is more exciting than having new things introduced to a game. The new element type coming to the game is called the Destiny 2 Stasis. It’d be present in most parts of the game. Hence, you can be sure that this new element’s introduction signifies a significant happening in the game.

If you’re a fan of Destiny 2, you will know that it centers around three elements, three races, three guns, and more. So, the Stasis’s introduction is an impressive spice in the typical game features we all know. From the trailer, you can be confident that this addition will bring about a significant change in Destiny 2.

Raid and loot in Destiny 2

We can’t separate a sci-fi MMO shooter game from the traditional loot. Beyond Light’s raid will be happening below Europa’s crust, in the Deep Stone Crypt. For years, that area has been dormant. Hence, Guardians will test their skill and reward in the upcoming six-person raid. We’re confident it will feature lots of themed loot and returning exotics like the fabled Hawkmoon and The Stranger’s Rifle.

Eramis in Destiny 2: Beyond the Light

On Europa, the splintered houses of the fallen are under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis. After getting deserted by the Traveler and abandoned by the Light, Eramis goes into the Darkness. She is also on a collision course alongside the Guardians. As a returning villain, the game will have its primary focus around her and her journey. 

For the sake of additional information, you should know that she escaped the Prison of Elders. Hence, she has accepted or welcomed all the dark powers on Europa. Please note that she will bring in a new Fallen faction of the game, the House of Darkness. Besides, she will be the first enemy type to utilize the new element, Stasis.

Destiny 2: Availability on Consoles

With the new PS5 controller knocking on our doors, we need to know if Destiny 2 will be available on the console. At the moment, Destiny 2 is present for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Fortunately, Bungie plans on making this game available on the upcoming consoles, including the Xbox Series X. So, when they launch later this year, we expect compatibility. Besides, you don’t need to worry about losing any vital details, since player progress is present. Hence, you can confidently move to the next gen when they are launched.

Asides Beyond the Lights, there are other Destiny 2 Expansions that you may consider. For 2024 and 2024, more expansions are coming to the gaming industry. The expansions are titled The Witch Queen and Lightfall. We should review those games soon as well as their compatibility with the PS5.


Impressively, Bungie doesn’t focus on creating a new part of Destiny. Hence, Destiny 2 shouldn’t be out of the picture any time soon. With promises to launch the Witch Queen and Lightfall in the coming years, the fun never stops. Even though our expectations are high, we hope that they are exceeded. Here’s the good news; Bungie confirms that the PS4 players will receive the game on PS5 for free.

Moreover, the upcoming expansions coming up next year and the year after will be based on Beyond the Light. So, you should expect the best of these games as they will be vital parts of the era of Darkness. Overall, it appears Bungie has a lot to offer.
