The “Forsaken” storyline will be a Western-style tale of revenge beginning with a prison break in space, Steve Cotton, game director for “Forsaken,” said in a recent livestream. Cotton explained that Cayde-6 has been filling a prison with villains who are “really bad, so when it breaks things can happen to all of the worlds.” The developers said that much of “Forsaken’s” action will take place in a new region of the Reef called the Tangled Shore, a collection of lashed-together rocks and asteroids. It’s a haven for pirates, assassins, and thieves.
“Warmind,” the second expansion for “Destiny 2,” was released last month. Both “Warmind” and the previous DLC event, “Curse of Osiris,” were developed in large part by the Activision-owned studio Vicarious Visions.
“Destiny 2: Forsaken” launches on Sept. 4 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
