Check Out The New Details About DESTINY 2: THE WITCH QUEEN ViDoc
Bungie released the video doc, or ViDoc, for their upcoming expansion Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, and it’s packed with new details about the new content players can hope for when the expansion comes out on February 22nd, 2022.
The ViDoc features numerous members of the Destiny 2 development team talks about the new features coming to the long-running shooter and breaks down what challenges and rewards will be available when The Witch Queen is available coming out this month.
The doc opens with a recap of the story of Destiny 2 up to this point and how the unique villain Savathûn has been operating from the shadows. After a brief truce during the latest season (Season of the Lost), Savathûn has chosen that she doesn’t have any more need for the Guardians and is prepared to clear the player characters off the board once and for all.
The Witch Queen will come with a new, explorable area to the game that exists in another dimension and reflects Savathûn’s own twisted mind. The developers define it as a giant puzzle box loaded with mysteries and secrets that will lead players to the truth behind Savathûn’s lies. Even the story campaign for The Witch Queen will feature puzzle segments usually only seen in Destiny 2’s endgame content.
The ViDoc also reveals the first glance at the new seasonal content coming to Destiny 2 alongside The Witch Queen. The Season of the Risen will be the first Destiny 2 season to be completely integrated into the narrative of an expansion and will see players teaming up with Caiatl and her Cabal to fend off Savathûn’s raiding forces across the solar system.
Many new battle features were revealed in greater detail, including the weapon crafting system that will enable players to create their dream gun roll. The glaive is a new weapon archetype that functions as both a melee weapon and a ranged weapon and has a built-in shield for added utility. There are approximately 50 new weapons coming into the game between The Witch Queen and Season of the Risen.
Each of Destiny 2’s Void subclasses will be bringing a revamp with the new expansion that created the customization options introduced with the Stasis subclasses. Players will have the opportunity to mix and match various abilities to create their own build, and the latest abilities like a support barrier for Titans and a health-draining Void orb for Warlocks will mix up the meta-game in new and fascinating ways.
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is going to be the most ambitious expansion in the game’s history, and it’s one that Bungie has been advertising rigorously in the lead-up to release. We don’t have to wait long for the release, as Destiny 2: The Witch Queen will release on February 22, 2022, for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and PC via Steam.
