In its current format; a new year of Destiny content is always a strong one. Not only are you getting the new annual “expansion”, you’re also getting the beginning of a new season of content. In essence you’re being given two lumps of stuff for the price of one to occupy yourself with. So after spending the previous two seasons of the game experiencing a slow but steady cooling period with the game, Beyond Light has managed to recapture my attention In the exact same way Shadowkeep did in 2019.
I’m feeling kind of low on both inspiration and motivation right now. I’ve got things going in the boring old real world, I’m also struggling to make this blog what I want it to be at the moment. And I don’t really know what to do about it. That’s my issue though. I had something else planned for today. But instead, I’m just going to spend some time writing, stream of consciousness style, when it comes to my initial feelings about the new Destiny expansion that came out this week.
I’m also fairly certain I never paid for it, and somehow have access to it anyway. Which I’m not complaining about, this was one of the expense ones.
As if to keep their momentum going, Bungie put out a pre-recorded live stream in which their revealed their new expansion that’ll come out in September as the game rolls into its second year: Destiny Forsaken. I watched the stream a couple of times and thought I’d give my impressions considering I’m in a pretty deep Destiny hole right now.
