Swing through a neon-soaked city on Neptune.
Destiny 2: Lightfall key art

Earlier, Bungie showed off the first look at the next Destiny 2 expansion, Lightfall. The new expansion will be out on February 28, 2023 and will be the "penultimate chapter of Destiny 2's Light and Darkness saga." This expansion will obviously continue the overarching story that started back with the original Destiny.

In Lightfall, players will go up against Calus, the former emperor of the Cabal. Oh, and the Pyramid fleet led by the Witness are also there. And where is there? Neptune. Specifically, a neon-soaked city above Neptune called Neomuna.

This city was untouched by the Collapse, so its pristine buildings and neon-filled streets are very different from what players have experienced before. There are new places to explore and new characters to meet, like the Cloud Striders, the superhuman heroes that serve as Neptunians’ last line of defense.
Players will be able to harness the new Strand (thanks, Kojima) subclass. In addition to giving each class an entirely new set of abilities and supers, Strand will also give player access to a grapple hook that will facilitate movement.

Pre-orders for both Lightfall and the Lightfall + Annual Pass combo is currently up at places like Steam, the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Epic Games Store. Epic Games Store? Yes, Destiny 2 is now available on the Epic Games Store. Those that claim Destiny 2 on the Epic Games Store by August 30 at 10AM (PT) will also get the Destiny 2: 30th Anniversary Event pack for free.

Also, there is crossover between Destiny 2, Fortnite, and Fall Guys.

Fortnite players will be able to customize their characters with new Outfits depicting iconic Destiny characters Commander Zavala, Ikora Rey, and the Exo Stranger, along with new Destiny-themed Cosmetics including Back Blings, Pickaxes, and Sparrow Gliders. The Destiny-themed Cosmetics will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop later today at 5 PM Pacific.

More than just a remake, the Island also features “Control mode”-style gameplay, complete with unique weapons and ultimate abilities. The Fortnite Island is live right now.

Further, Fall Guys players will be able to descend on the Blunderdome with Destiny-themed Costumes beginning September 17, including Titan-, Hunter-, and Warlock-themed outfits, a new “Spicy Ramen” celebration, and other accessories.
