The Moon in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be twice as large

In Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, players must explore the Moon, where a large Hive castle has appeared. In a released video, developers talk about the changes in the area.

The next major expansion of Destiny 2, called Shadowkeep, launches in September and takes place on the Moon. Bungie has now released a new video in which developers talk about the new area and the changes in relation to the Moon in Destiny 1. This shows how the Moon is no less than twice as large and is plagued by a spiky, red Hive castle.

In Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Eris Morn, known from Destiny 1, discovers a “hidden darkness” beneath the Moon’s surface. Players are therefore given the task of invading the mysterious fortress of the Hive enemies. Just like in the first part, the large spaceship of the Fallen is still on the Moon, but this time it seems that the Fallen are demolishing the ship to build a new base.

It was announced in June that Destiny 2 will switch to a free-to-play system, called Destiny 2: New Light, when the Shadowkeep expansion launches in September. Cross-save support is also coming to the game, allowing players to choose one character to transfer to another platform without losing their equipment and progression.
