On August 24, the veil of mold will be removed from Destiny 2's The Witch Queen expansion, though it's not entirely clear from the teaser published today, the showcase will surely take place at the Bungie officer Twitch i YouTube channels.
Originally defeated in late 2021, The Witch Queen was delayed until 2022 as a result of pressures to develop from home during Covid-19. Little is known about the content of The Witch Queen, beyond that it will include the Guardians facing Savathûn as the titular antagonist and is the middle part of a trilogy of expansions that began with Beyond Light and will end with Lightfall.
You can read a lot of knowledge about Savathûn’s motivations here, but is already making its presence felt in the narrative of the current season, as it has been revealed as the force behind the descent of the last city into the darkness. Those who are willing to really struggle with meticulous narratives will also have learned that perhaps they are already moving among us, posing as a kind character. Cue big turn at the end of the season in just over a month.
Aside from Savathûn's cunning, players anticipate that the Witch Queen may add another elemental power to the Guardians' arsenal, although the power of Stasis Beyond Light has caused balance headaches. It’s also a safe bet to wait for a new destination to visit, with the verdant Old Earth region of Chicago considered the most likely scene based on the image below that was mocked by Bungie.
The Queen of Witches will be out in early 2022, which gives me plenty of time to decide if that black helmet with Hunter bulbs is in fashion or if it’s a Zoolander faux pas.
