Forsaken Expansion Content Will Enter The Destiny Content Vault Next Year
Leading up to the launch of the upcoming The Witch Queen expansion for Destiny 2, players have wondered whether existing content was going to find its way into the Destiny Content Vault (DCV). Finally, we know the answer. Players who are looking for Destiny content need to act quickly as this is a critical part of the game’s lore.
Bungie, the developers of Destiny 2 have posted a blog announcement that The Forsaken campaign, and the playable destination The Tangled Shore are moving into the DCV. If you want to experience the content from that expansion, including the Harbinger and Presage Exotic missions, or snag the Forsaken seasonal content, you’ll have until February to play through it.
What if you don’t own Forsaken? That won’t be a problem! Bungie will make the Forsaken content available to all Destiny 2 players beginning December 7. Any player will get the chance to see the critical point in the Destiny story where a quest for revenge leads you on a chase for Queen Mara Sov’s brother, Uldren Sov, and set forth the events that tie into the current storyline in Season of the Lost. Having just played through Forsaken a little over a month ago, it’s worth it. You should do the same as me while you have access to the content.
However, not all of Forsaken’s content is being kept away. The Dreaming City, a sacred Awoken area, will not be shifted out of play, and “certain Year 4 content will persist in Year 5, including the Proving Grounds strike and the Battlegrounds activities.”
There’s a reason Bungie has decided to shelve content for Destiny 2 temporarily, and the easiest explanation is that it gives them more data real estate to work with for new content. Here’s what Bungie says has been possible because of it in its blog post:
The DCV’s impact can be seen in Destiny 2. From new and popular activities like Battlegrounds that continue through Year 4, to innovative innovations that make the game more enjoyable for all players, the DCV has had a significant effect on Destiny 2.” For example, the DCV has provided a great deal of technical “breathing room” that the team has devoted to important improvements to the Destiny experience. There have been many improvements, such as a significantly reduced patch response time and improved loading times. You can also access UI items like the inventory or map faster thanks to the DCV.
Whether you’re for the DCV or not, Destiny players will undoubtedly be losing some good stories and fun quests in February. To fight alongside Cayde-6 for the last time, log in as soon as possible or after December 7.
