• The seasonal content of "Destiny 2" will be accessible for a year starting in the fall of 2020
  • "Destiny 2" is getting  season content every three months, but that goes away after the period
  • Bungie announced that with the new change, "core activities" of the season will "live on" after the season ended

Bungie is implementing a massive change for the seasonal content of “Destiny 2” starting this fall 2020.

Previously, Bungie unrolls seasonal content – gears and activities included -- every three months. However, at the end of each period, the content goes away to give way to the new “season.”

While such a strategy is intended to keep gamers playing the game regularly, it has been met with criticisms and outcry as it is not always easy to keep up with the seasonal contents – especially in a three-month period.

In response to this, and as Bungie aims to develop a more cohesive narrative, the Washington-based game developer announced that all seasonal activities of “Destiny 2” will last for a year starting in Season 12 this fall. Specifically, “the core parts of the activity experience will live on after the Season has ended.”

This means that those who weren’t able to play during the previous season will still be able to access older activities without season-specific requirements.

“With our new approach, when Season of Dawn concluded we would have left behind the ‘Saving Saint-14’ quest, the Exotic quests to acquire Devil’s Ruin and Bastion, and the Sundial activity. We would sunset the Obelisks experience to reduce clutter in the quest log and to keep bounty quantity from inflating across the game, and deprecate the Fractaline currency so it could be safely removed from the player’s inventory,” Bungie Creative Director Evan Nikolich said to explain how the new seasonal content works.

As an added bonus to players, the rewards from the older seasonal activities will stick on, giving them more reason to access the previous content. Furthermore, Bungie is also looking to make the rewards easier and more entertaining to earn by adding them to core activities such as Strikes, Gambit and the Crucible.

The upcoming update on the seasonal content of “Destiny 2” is far from a finished product as well, and Nikolich noted that they will continue to evolve as they build an interconnected narrative.

“In Year 4, we are going to build a better-interconnected narrative and, more importantly, let players be a part of that narrative no matter when they enter the current year. This means if you start playing in March 2021, you could go back and experience the Season 12 and Season 13 narrative content. We want our stories to feel more cohesive, flow with meaningful momentum Season over Season, and lead to an exciting climax each year,” Nikolich added.

“Destiny 2” is a multiplayer first-person shooter game that is available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Microsoft Windows).
