Destiny 2’s Season of Opulence is only a day away. It was up to Gambit to do a lot of the heavy lifting over the last few months but premiere PvE content once again takes center stage. Here’s everything you need to know about Destiny 2’s Season of Opulence.
While Black Armory excelled in adding midcore PvE content and Season of the Drifter expanded Gambit in a meaningful way, expect Season of Opulence to deliver even more PvE content, especially for hardcore players.
Fans of the game’s lore should also be stoked as this content update will serve as a bridge from Forsaken to the next chapter of Destiny 2’s story. First, though, let’s start with what many players will be wrapped up with tomorrow.
Day 1 Raid: Crown of Sorrows
For the first time in quite a while, Destiny 2 is launching the raid on the same day as a content update. Crown of Sorrows will be live right away whenever the patch is fully downloaded, installed, and live on your console.
Generally, the raid comes a week after to give players some time to dive into the story and get their power level up.
However, the raid and the continuation of the Calus plot (more on that in a bit) is arguably the main event of this update, so Bungie is letting loose and allowing players to dive right into giving the raid a go as soon as everything is live tomorrow.
Crown of Sorrows will have players exploring, and ultimately clearing out, an infestation of the Hive at the Leviathan. Not much else is known at the moment, as is usually the case until the raid is actually out.
A very small percentage of raid teams will be going for world first. Expect to see some familiar faces such as Datto’s Math Class team, Gigs, Gamesager and other popular streamers high up on Twitch as they race for the championship belt for Crown of Sorrows
