Contemplating she’s the Hive goddess of deception, Savathûn would not appear all that nice at holding secrets and techniques. (Or does she? And many others and so forth.) At present, Bungie gave Future 2 gamers their first actual have a look at The Witch Queen enlargement within the type of an hour-long reveal stream, which is embedded above. Or at the least, the primary look assuming you’d managed to keep away from the juicy Pastebin, Notepad and Australian PlayStation retailer leaks, which at this level seem to have been confirmed as virtually solely correct. Both approach, the stream contained a ton of information about what’s coming to Future 2 in The Witch Queen on 2 February 2022. Let’s hit the most important headlines:


1. The brand new Vacation spot can be Savathûn’s throne world

It seems these verdant pictures Bungie had teased the place not of Earth’s Outdated Chicago in spite of everything. As a substitute, The Witch Queen will see the guardian’s enterprise into Savathûn’s swampy throne world. She guidelines this “uncharted wonderland of secrets and techniques and lies” from an unlimited citadel, and there is additionally a crashed Pyramid ship to deal with (which my guess is can be concerned with the raid one way or the other). Throne Worlds are Pocket Universes created by the Hive—her brother, Oryx, and his son, Crota, additionally had one—the place the principles of actuality are decided by the proprietor. These locations successfully perform as insurance coverage insurance policies towards dying, so our aim is presumably to stay it to the Queen as soon as and for all. Which is not going to be simple as a result of… 


2. Oh shit, the Hive have the Mild now

These Hive will be capable to wield Mild skills and are available again from the useless. I already hate them. (Picture credit score: Bungie)

It is a drawback. Savathûn has one way or the other tricked The Traveller—that is Future’s huge flying benevolent golf ball of a god—into bestowing its supernatural presents on her. The consequence being that she, and her Hive followers, are in a position to wield the Mild. Within the footage we noticed Hive ‘Guardians’ casting tremendous skills from a number of subclasses. (Did I even see one wielding Stasis?) Being empowered with the Mild additionally means the Hive will be capable to come again from the useless, as evidenced by the very fact they now have bony ghosts to resurrect them. The implication from a clip of one in every of these being crushed is that we’ll must destroy their ghosts to kill them fully. What’s notably cool is that the fundamental good/evil binary provided by Future’s Mild vs the Darkness schtick was all the time a bit boring, so including some complexity to who’s in a position to wield what, and who may finally be on the aspect of proper, is intriguing.
