Scheduled to arrive in early 2022, the multiplayer shooter’s fourth expansion will introduce Savathûn as the new enemy, also known as the Witch Queen. Sister to Oryx, she was first mentioned in 2015’s The Taken King expansion and has been teased ever since across the game’s various strikes as well as lore pickups. Gamers will once again team up and face off with their new nemesis along with the Lucent Hive on her Throne World, equipped with a whole host of upgraded gear through a new crafting mechanic that allows players to customize and create tailored weapons.
Aside from a new enemy, the expansion will also introduce a brand new weapon archetype known as the Glaive. Unlike previous weapons, you’ll only be able to access your first Glaive through weapon crafting, but it sounds like the work will be worth it given its abilities of sophisticated melee combos, shield deployment, and firing projectiles consisting of pure energy.
For fans of the online shooter, Destiny 2: The Witch Queen will launch on February 22, 2022.
