Bungie has announced that Warmind, the second expansion to Destiny 2, will be released next month.
Mark a date in your diary, well two. Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2‘s third season of content will begin on May 8, 2018, with the release of Warmind.
According to a post from the Destiny Dev team on the Bungie website, the first content expansion will send players to “new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies.”
Apart from that, and a rather striking teaser image (see above), that’s all we know. The second date for your diary is April 24, 2018, when Bungie will reveal more details. (Or they might announce another date to make note of, who can say?)
The post also outlines a new plan for how Bungie will deliver Crucible content to the game:
“For every player of Destiny 2, we’ll be releasing all of the new Crucible Maps being developed for Warmind into matchmaking. The same goes for the maps we released with Curse of Osiris. To keep the community in the Crucible unified, everyone will see new arenas in matchmade playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, Iron Banner, as well as the new weekly rotators that include Rumble and Mayhem.”
The aim is bolster the amount of opponent available to every player. However, as you can see in the full roadmap – check the small print – with the arrival of Private Matches, players will need to purchase each Expansion to have exclusive access to play those Crucible maps with other players in a private match.
The roadmap also details some returning features from the first Destiny, including weapon slot changes and weapon randomisation.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
