Today, Bungie released the "Season of Arrivals" for Destiny 2. During the livestream, the team also discussed upcoming content like future expansions until 2022 and how the game will just be called Destiny going forward. The first expansion drops on September 22 and is called Beyond Light. It adds a new Europa region and a new threat.

A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid Ship above Europa's frozen frontier and a dark empire has risen beneath. In Destiny 2: Beyond Light, join your fellow Guardians and bring down the empire at any cost – even if it means wielding the Darkness itself. In Beyond Light, Guardians will explore a new destination: Jupiter's frozen moon of Europa. Brave harsh weather conditions and uncover the secrets that lie deep under the ancient ice, including the brand-new raid: Deep Stone Crypt. As a new threat emerges, so too does a mysterious new power – Stasis. Rooted in Darkness, Guardians will wield this new elemental power to dominate the battlefield, from controlling the flow of combat with Stasis fields to encasing and shattering enemies with destructive might.

You can preorder the expansion for $40 on the Microsoft Store. You'll have to wait to access a lot of the content, but you'll get some cool cosmetic items immediately if you preorder.
