Join forces with friends in challenging dungeons, face off against formidable world bosses, and participate in large-scale PvP battles that demand strategy and teamwork.

The Final Shape is another expansion, not an entirely new game, but it contains enough content to be one. This will be the eighth Destiny 2 major release; the twelfth of the franchise. And the final entry in The Light and Darkness Saga.

What can we expect? Like previous expansions, there’ll be new locations to explore, new Supers, a new raid, and of course lots of tantalizing new Exotic weapons. The release of The Final Shape will also kick off a year-long event with new episode-based content. Here’s how it’ll work:

Starting in 2024, Episodes will be replacing Seasons as our new way of storytelling and content update format for Destiny 2. Each Episode will contain new story content and rewards, including a new Exotic mission, Exotic weapon and armor. Episodes will be in three Acts; with a new Act releasing every six weeks—containing new stories, quests, activities, weapons, artifact mods, pass ranks, and rewards.

You’ll definitely want to be part of the action from day one when The Final Shape finally drops next year.
