Destiny 2 Lightfall Showcase

Bungie's sci-fi MMO shooter, Destiny 2, is prepping their usual big showcase this year, but it comes a bit earlier than expected. On August 23, fans can tune in to the live stream on Bungie's Twitch channel and learn the details about the game's highly-anticipated Lightfall expansion.

Lightfall will conclude the long-running Light and Darkness saga of Destiny, and the showcase will spotlight key details and improvements on the horizon. Also, the game's 18th season could be revealed during the live stream, hopefully starting the day of the reveal after a hype showcase. That's all speculative, though, since Bungie has kept the exact timing of their seasons secret for quite some time. However, Bungie did reveal that season 19 is coming sometime later in the year, so it matches up if August or September will see the 18th.

The official Destiny 2 Twitter page posted a "No Escape" trailer today that showed the severe gravity of this expansion story-wise and introduced the big bad into the fold at the end. As the culmination of a saga, there's a lot the Bungie team has to nail, especially when their storytelling has been hit-or-miss. We'll have to see what's in store for Lightfall come August!

While you wait, go vote for the next Trials map and help the community win a free emblem for reaching milestones. Details can be found in the latest Destiny blog.
