Destiny 2 Warmind Expansion Coming May 8

Fans of Destiny 2 have a date to look forward to for the next big expansion to land. The second expansion pack for the game is called Warmind and it will launch on May 8. That launch date was announced as part of an updated development roadmap covering seasons three and four of the game reports Polygon.

Warmind marks the start of season three for the game and Bungie says that the game will “send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies. You’ll earn new loot and master new activities.” More details on Warmind will be unveiled on April 24 during a stream.

“For every player of Destiny 2, we’ll be releasing all of the new Crucible Maps being developed for Warmind into matchmaking,” Bungie said. “The same goes for the maps we released with Curse of Osiris. To keep the community in the Crucible unified, everyone will see new arenas in matchmade playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, Iron Banner, as well as the new weekly rotators that include Rumble and Mayhem. That means more opponents for everyone. With the arrival of Private Matches, players will need to purchase each Expansion to have exclusive access to play those Crucible maps with other players in a private match.”
