Destiny 2 seasons

Bungie has confirmed that they are staggering the release of the prestige lairs for Destiny 2 so that Guardians have a chance to race through them.

Eater of Worlds and Spire of the Stars will be out within a day of each other.

Bungie will release Eater of Worlds on July 17th and Spire of stars on July 18th.


Destiny 2’s senior designer, Joe Blackburn, said:

“Based on player feedback—and to ensure each World’s First race has a clean start—we’re changing the release times of each activity. Eater of Worlds will receive a one-hour delay to ensure players have ample time to download and install Destiny 2 Update 1.2.3 once it becomes available. Spire of Stars has been delayed 24 hours to offset the activity releases.”

Prestige lairs are a pretty fiery gauntlet. Guardians are charged with getting through the map with a specific weapon loadout and a series of modifiers.

Blackburn hinted at what we can expect, saying, “I’ve been looking out from my Time-Worn Spire and I feel an Autumn Wind blowing.” Those are hints at two well-known pulse rifles.

He also commented on something called ‘Arsenal,’ didn’t go into any further details on this.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
