Vault of Glass and Transmog are already being readied for Destiny 2’s Season 14. It’s also possible that we will finally see crossplay too.

Bungie is already working on some important Destiny 2 features that are set to be introduced in Season 14, and some that could feature.

The primary focus for the epic FPS space drama is the transition from Season of the Hunt to the Season of the Chosen. New content is set to include crucial story details to maintain the new direction Destiny is heading, new strikes, and more.

But whereas Season 13 will be here for the next few weeks, Season 14 already promises to offer some massive content for the game in the future.

Destiny 2 Season 14 Vault of Glass

Anyone with a connection to the original Destiny will be instantly familiar when they think of Vault of Glass. Many Destiny players that have been around since the first game will need to be ready to rekindle an old flame as the series’ first-ever Raid is coming back.

In an interview on the game’s official YouTube channel, Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn mentioned how the Raid has basically changed in the last 6 years. He said, “we would smoke this with Destiny 2 weapons and armor mods.”

He goes on to say the Raid is essentially going to be given a Destiny 2 lick of paint to make it harder and more challenging for seasoned Destiny players. Rewards and weapons tied to the Strike will also make a return to cap off the nostalgia.

Destiny 2 Season 14 Transmog

Cited on the blog post as a “work-in-progress”, Transmog (short for Transmogrification) is a system that takes an existing piece of armor and keeps the item’s stats unchanged. It will then redesign the armor to imitate the appearance of another piece, but again, retaining the original stats.

Destiny 2 has previously incorporated the idea in a far limited fashion. But the goal is to amplify this and make it a feature that can be transferred across all the armor in the game, allowing for greater customization options for players.

Destiny 2 Season 14 crossplay

It’s no secret that crossplay is a highly sought-after request for fans of Destiny 2. Allowing players to storm Raids, with their friends, across different consoles is seen as a necessity that they’ve been deprived of for far too long.

Thankfully, those requests haven’t fallen on deaf ears as in the December 8 “This week in Bungie” post, Joe Blackburn stated that, “Crossplay is coming in 2021.”

Now, are we saying that it’s coming in Season 14? Unfortunately, we are not, but it doesn’t mean it won’t. Crossplay has become commonplace in the gaming industry with all the major companies now allowing universal online play. Destiny risks losing players by not incorporating this into the game sooner rather than later. Logic dictates that it’s only a matter of time, and Crossplay could be welcomed in Season 14.

These are just three big things to keep an eye out for as consider what Destiny 2 holds in store in the future.

These will no doubt be huge wins for Destiny players and fans alike, but in the meantime, there’s plenty to enjoy and marvel in with the anticipated release of Season of the Chosen.

Every Destiny 2 DLC and Expansion: Full list

Here’s every Destiny 2 DLC and Expansion since the game launched in 2017, from the Curse of Osiris to 2022’s The Witch Queen.

Published

Every Destiny 2 expansion

Bungie’s live-service epic Destiny 2 has been supported for almost five years, so we have the full list of every DLC and Expansion released so far, from the Curse of Osiris to the Witch Queen.

For FPS fans looking to engage in a deep and sprawling sci-fi story, look no further than Destiny 2. First released back in 2017, Destiny 2 is now in its 16th season, with two more major Expansions still to come.

All of this new content means that older Expansions and areas are retired, so it’s difficult to keep track of all the DLC. We’re looking back through Destiny 2’s history, listing all of Destiny 2’s paid expansions in chronological order.

Curse of Osiris – December 2017

Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris

Curse of Osiris was Destiny 2’s first Expansion pack, arriving on December 5, 2017, and brought players to the planet Mercury for the first time.

This DLC Expansion included the Eater of Worlds Raid and the Infinite Forest, a procedurally generated area that allowed players to visit simulations of Mercury’s past, present, and future.

Curse of Osiris received mixed reviews and is widely considered Destiny 2’s most disappointing DLC drop.

Warmind – May 2018

Destiny 2 Warmind

Releasing on May 8, 2018, Warmind was Destiny 2’s second Expansion and the final piece of Year One content.

Warmind brought Destiny 2 players back to Mars but introduced an area that Destiny 1 players hadn’t seen before – Hellas Basin. Guardians had to contend with the awakened Hive Army and also saw the return of Warmind Rasputin from the original game.

The Warmind Expansion also introduced the Valor and Glory ranking system, as well as Escalation Protocol, where players had to defend towers from waves of Hive.

Forsaken – September 2018

Destiny 2 Forsaken

Destiny 2 Year Two was kicked off by September 2018’s Forsaken, which introduced the yearly seasonal content that Bungie continues to this day.

Forsaken was arguably a turning point for Destiny 2, introducing a ton of mechanics that shaped the game going forward. It marked the arrival of the Bow, the Gambit PvPvE mode, the Last Wish Raid, Breakthrough mode, and The Shattered Throne Dungeon.

Forsaken contained three more Seasons, which you can check out below:

  • Season of the Outlaw (launch)
  • Season of the Forge (December 4, 2018)
  • Season of the Drifter (March 5, 2019)
  • Season of the Opulence (June 4, 2019)

Shadowkeep – October 2019

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep

Continuing with the Season model, Destiny 2 introduced the Shadowkeep Expansion on October 1, 2019. Shadowkeep kicked off Year 3 and had players visit the Moon, which long-time Guardians would recognize from the original.

Although introducing the Festering Core and Scarlet Keep Strikes, Garden of Salvation Raid, and Pit of Heresy Dungeon, the most dramatic change Shadowkeep was the Armor 2.0 system. This allowed Guardians to upgrade their armor as they saw fit, removing the need to wear armor they didn’t like just for better stats.

Here are all of Destiny 2 Shadowkeep’s Seasons:

  • Season of the Undying (launch)
  • Season of Dawn (December 10, 2019)
  • Season of the Worthy (March 10, 2020)
  • Season of Arrivals (June 9, 2020)

Beyond Light – November 2020

Destiny 2 Beyond Light

Destiny 2’s fifth Expansion, Beyond Light, was released on November 10, 2020, and marked Year Four.

Beyond Light took Guardians to the icy Europa, Jupiter’s closest moon. This was when Destiny 2 first went free-to-play and vaulted Titan, Io, Mars, Mercury, and Leviathan to stop the game from getting too big. These locations were removed with the possibility that they’ll be revamped and added back at a later date.

Plus, Destiny 1’s fan-favorite Vault of Glass Raid was remastered and hit Destiny 2 during May’s Season of the Splicer. Here are all of Beyond Light’s Seasons:

  • Season of the Hunt (launch)
  • Season of the Chosen (February 9, 2021)
  • Season of the Splicer (May 11, 2021)
  • Season of the Lost (August 24, 2021)

Bungie 30th Anniversary Event – December 2021

Destiny 2 Bungie 30th anniversary event

Bungie celebrated their 30th Anniversary Event inside Destiny 2, offering players some Halo-inspired cosmetics as well as the Grasp of Avarice three-player Raid.

While nowhere as big as the other Expansions and seasons, it kept players tiding over while The Witch Queen was delayed until February 2022.

The Witch Queen – February 2022

Destiny 2 the witch queen expansion

February 2022’s The Witch Queen is one of the biggest Expansions Destiny 2 has received yet.

Launching with a highly-rated campaign, The Witch Queen brought the Witch Queen’s Throne World, the new Vow of Disciple Raid race, weapon crafting, and Glaive Exotics.

The Witch Queen launched with Season of the Risen, while the rest of the Expansions are still known as “Season of the [Redacted]” until they’re officially revealed.

Lightfall & The Final Shape – TBA

Destiny 2 is still to receive the Lightfall and The Final Shape Expansions, likely in 2023 and 2024. We don’t know what this DLC will entail, but Bungie revealed that “The Light and Darkness saga will come to a dramatic conclusion in Destiny 2: The Final Shape.”
