Recently, Bungie teased the next Destiny 2 expansion called "Warmind". Warmind launches on May 8, 2018 and, as the name suggests, deals with the artificial intelligence constructs designed to protect the solar system.

Until recently, we didn't really know where on Mars it took place or what sort of improvements it brought to gameplay. However, the launch trailer for Warmind reveals just that and many more details. On Mars you get to explore "Hellas Basin". Aside from vast new structures, players must survive an event known as the "Hive Escalation Protocol".

For those of you who fondly remember the "Suros Regime" assault rifle from the first game, it looks like you might be in luck because a similar weapon should be added with the expansion. "Masterwork Exotics" will probably be the most game-changing addition because they make your weapons stronger. Hopefully acquiring materials won't be too much of a grind.

Destiny 2: Warmind continues your Guardian's journey in a dramatic way. Ana Bray, a Guardian long thought lost, searches for a connection to her past, one that could be lost forever on the polar ice caps of Mars. As Golden Age satellites begin slamming into the ice, the glaciers begin to thaw, revealing the core of the Warmind Rasputin – and an ancient Hive army bent on its destruction. Now free, the Hive swarm in service to their god Xol wants to take out Rasputin who is regarded as the most powerful weapon in the solar system. Players help Ana discover her past and destroy the Hive's gargantuan worm-like god before it is too late.

Warmind should be full of new content so that gamers will want to play the title again. Over the past few months, Destiny 2's player base has decreased rather significantly because the "Curse of Osiris" expansion placed many of the maps behind a paywall. Hopefully this will change that.
