Update: Destiny Content Vault, What’s Going into The Vault, What’s Leaving the Vault
Last summer, we were introduced to the Destiny Content Vault (DCV) as part of Bungie’s commitment to the future of Destiny 2.
The DCV was created to help them achieve their vision for the game through their trio of the upcoming expansions and beyond.
Looking Ahead, Looking Behind
Following the release of the 30th anniversary celebration in December, year 5 of D2 releases Feb 22, 2022 along with the launch of the Witch Queen expansion and the next un-named seasons. In addition, to all the brand new content, Bungie is bringing a carefully curated selection of content out of the vault, including: a classic raid, 2 PvP maps from D2, and one classic PvP map from D1.
Vaulting in Year 5
Starting Feb 22, 2022 the Forsaken campaign and the Tangled Shore destination will be entering the content vault. (Note: The Dreaming City destination will continue to be available) Along with year 4 seasonal content including: the Presage and Harbringer Exotic missions.
Vaulting this content will allow Bungie the space to launch The Witch Queen expansion along with its new Throne World destination. Along with new feats like weapon crafting, new legendary difficulty campaign option, the new Glaive weapon arche type, plus all the additional content Bungie has planned for the 4 new seasons coming starting in February.
Even though most of Year 4 seasonal content will be vaulted, there’s certain Year 4 content that’ll presist in Year 5. Which includes the Proving Grounds Strike and the Battlegrounds activities. Starting in Feb, the existing Battlegrounds will be combined with strikes into the new “Vanguard Operations” playlist that’ll be free for all players.
In addition, the Warden of Nothing strike will remain in the game. Lastly, all of Spider’s currency exchange function will be taken over by Master Rahool at the Tower then the Tangled Shore goes into the Vault.
Relive the Campaign
The Forsaken campaign is going to be available for all players for free from Dec 7, 2021 until it goes into the vault on Feb 2022.
Beginning Dec 7, 2022 the Forsaken Pack will be available to purchase. It’ll include: Access to the Last Wish Raid, the Shattered Throne Dungeon, All of the Forsaken exotics, 3 Forsaken Ciphers that can be used to instantly unlock your choice of Forsaken exotics. To those of you that have previously purchased Forsaken will automatically own the new Forsaken Pack and will receive the 3 Forsaken Ciphers to their inventory.
