Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie. While the first game wasn't well-received, the sequel fixes a lot of the problems that plagued the original. Now that Bungie isn't working with Activision, it looks like the team is changing its business model to make future content more accessible. Going forward, each Season will cost $10 and come with its own Artifact.
Starting in October, the Season of the Undying brings The Gate Lord's Eye. You have the ability to keep on leveling up and increasing your in-game Power Level. Bungie said the following in its explanation post.
Hopefully, the fact that you can increase your Power Level indefinitely won't create any balancing issues when it comes to modes like Gambit. However, only time will tell. This is a great way to keep players coming back for more because just playing the game helps you become stronger. You don't have to pursue obscure quests and other annoying objectives anymore.
