Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Roadmap: Everything We Know So Far

Destiny 2's Season of the Lost will mark the game's fifteenth seasonal update since launching in 2017 - and it's one of the most hotly-anticipated yet.

Aside from the usual additions of a new Season Pass, artefact and a new Seasonal Activity to take part in, it'll set up the events of the upcoming Witch Queen expansion.

While we don't yet have the official roadmap from Bungie, there's already plenty we're expecting. Without further ado, here's what's coming.

Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Roadmap: Everything We Know So Far

Destiny offers a series of weekly rituals, and these are unlikely to change. Expect Xur to appear on Fridays, and weekly resets to occur on Tuesdays as they have done since the first game launched in 2014.

We also know Trials of Osiris will be back on September 10th. Plenty of changes are coming to the mode, including matchmaking for solo and duos.

We're also expecting Iron Banner to return on the second Tuesday of each month, with the first one of Season of the Lost arriving in early September.

When it comes to annual events, we expect Season of the Lost to incorporate Festival of the Lost, the franchise's traditional Halloween event. We also know there will be a series of armour sets based around dinosaurs or movie monsters, with fans voting on their favourite.

Since we've got a much longer season following the delay of the Witch Queen, Moments of Triumph will be back, alongside festive event The Dawning.

As for story content, expect weekly breadcrumbs of story to be handed out. It's worked well in recent seasons. It'll likely be tied into the new Seasonal Activity, too, like it was with Override in Season of the Splicer.

For this season, that's Astral Alignment and Shattered Realm.

Here's the description for Astral Alignment, as per Bungie:

Breathe life into slumbering Awoken technology and triumph over those who fear the Light. Align the ley-line network and chart a path to rescue Mara Sov’s lost tech witches from the Shattered Realm.

As for Shattered Realm, here's what we know:

Wayfind through the Shattered Realm in search of Mara Sov’s lost tech witches. Rescue them and use the power they bestow to see this mysterious landscape with new eyes – to reach the unreachable.

Bungie has also been experimenting with big, season-ending events. We had the epilogue last time around, and it's not too long ago that we blew the Almighty out of the sky. As Destiny's narrative grows, I'm expecting each season to get a fitting endcap.

In any case, we'll update this page as we hear more.
