Destiny 2 has had its fair share of highs and lows over the past year. The original game was enjoyed by many, but the fact that the "Curse of Osiris" expansion placed a lot of content behind a paywall didn't go well with users. While the latest "Warmind" expansion tried to correct that, the new content wasn't as appealing to longtime players. Today, Bungie announced the "Forsaken" expansion which should hopefully add a slew of new activities to the game and bring fans back.

Forsaken is the first major expansion to Destiny 2 and launches on September 4, 2018. With two new destinations to explore, and new weapons, armor and "Super" abilities to acquire, the download takes players on an epic journey into the wild frontiers of our solar system where the lines between justice and revenge are blurred.

Forsaken also features a new competitive and collaborative endgame activity called "Gambit". Gambit is a new, hybrid four-vs-four mode that merges both player vs. enemy and player vs. player experiences into an epic battle. This entirely new way to play Destiny 2 should offer enjoyment for all types of gamers. Forsaken also brings a new weapon slot system, "Random Rolls", improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements.

Following years of strife, what remains of the "Reef" has fallen to lawlessness. Players investigate the recent unrest and explore new regions. Building on the most requested desire for a deep and rewarding endgame experience, Forsaken features "The Dreaming City" destination. Full of secrets to discover and bosses to defeat, this region also houses the new raid and is the first space designed from the ground up to support endgame content.

Forsaken will be available on Xbox One for $39.99. There will also be the Forsaken and Annual Pass Bundle at $69.99, and a Forsaken: Digital Deluxe Edition featuring premium digital content at $79.99.
