Popular game Destiny 2 is suffering a temporary takedown as developer Bungie is conducting offline maintenance. Bad news for UK gamers as the offline status of the game is expected to last for the whole evening, if not the whole weekend.
Destiny and Destiny 2 serves are offline as of 4 PM as announced by Bungie on Twitter. The devs have said that:
“For the duration of today’s Destiny maintenance, all Bungie.net and Destiny Companion features will be unavailable on Web, Mobile, and Third-Party Apps.”
The purpose of the maintenance is to set up the new Shadowkeep expansion. The devs have described the upcoming content for their new game. It is said that the heroes will now look beyond the last safe city in the game and slowly make their way into the world.
New enemies called Nightmares will emerge from the shadows of the forgotten Moon. This means that new characters, locations, and features will be unlocked for the game. As the description prompts the players to journey to the Moon, into a frightful enemy stronghold.
This will be done in an attempt to perform a preliminary strike against the new enemies so that they will not envelop the world. As the goal of the creatures is to wipe out the newly saved human race.
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep will feature:
- New Missions & Quests
- New Destination & Dungeon
- New Armor and Gear to Earn
- An All New Raid
- Season Pass for Season of the Undying*
Destin 2 Shadowkeep Teaser
The sneak peek for the expansion has a mysterious Eris Morn return and narrated about a forgotten race or possibly betrayed people. She does this while calmly arranging some prayers beads or something similar.
It is said that these nightmares are shaping the very geology of the Moon, which could be quite dangerous. We do not get a clear look at them but the creatures seem to be half mineral-based, half enveloped by shadow. Having the appearance of creepy rock golems of different shapes, colors, and sizes.
