What you need to know
- Destiny 2's "Season of the Worthy" is now available.
- The game's new level cap is 1,010.
- You can level up to 1,000 just by completing regular activies.
- You can purchase Shadowkeep, the latest Destiny 2 expansion, for $35 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
Destiny 2's "Season of the Worthy" just launched on Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. It brings with it the "Trials of Osiris" and much more. However, what you probably didn't know is that the level cap got a massive boost. There were rumors floating around that the level cap would only go up to 980. However, that's not the case at all and the new cap is 1,010. This means that you'll have to play for longer, finish the raid and Trials of Osiris, every week to reach it quickly.
If you have the Season Pass, you gain access to new exotics like "Tommy's Matchbox." However, it's not the weapon you'd expect. The more you use it, the more likely it is to overheat and damage you! There are other surprsies thrown in there too. Be sure to check out the latest update if you love Destiny 2.
The download on Xbox One is only 5 GB so it should go by quickly. However, be prepared to wait in queue as you're logged in because there appears to be wait list of sorts to play the game right now. A lot of people want to start working towards that 1,010 target.
The Darkness has arrived
Shadowkeep is the latest Destiny 2 expansion, bringing players a terrifying new adventure against the Hive and sees the arrival of a mysterious, fear-inducing threat.
It'll last you a couple of months

Tommy's with Devour Voidwalker is a killer build in PvP.
Also, this may be the worst season since Joker's Wild. Dawn was a minimal viable product, this... Worthy is severely lacking and the return of Trials isn't going to carry it. Bungie is definitely phoning it in this time around.
