Season of the Haunted, Destiny 2’s 17th season, is the next adventure for the Guardians, according to Bungie. The Leviathan, a huge, planet-devouring ship that’s been the backdrop of many prior events, will be revisited in Season 17. The Solar 3.0 subclass change, a new dungeon (a separate purchase from the season), and a slew of new loot will all be available to Guardians.

The Leviathan and its lord, Emperor Calus of the Cabal, escaped Nessus’ orbit and our solar system before Beyond Light. The ship has returned, settling over the Moon and absorbing some of the Moon’s Nightmares. Players will board the ship to figure out what’s wrong and “become the reaper,” wielding a powerful scythe.

There are two new activities in the new season. The first is Nightmare Containment, a free public event open to all players that takes place on The Leviathan — most likely in a free-roam region similar to the game’s other setting, according to certain image titles. Sever is only available during the premium season and takes place in the Leviathan’s underbelly as well as several of the ancient raid venues. Calus’ Nightmares must be freed, and the players must figure out what he’s up to.

The Trespasser Exotic Arc sidearm returns from the original Destiny and is available through the season pass track. Four new seasonal weapons (including what looks to be a Stasis trace rifle) and four weapons from Season of Opulence’s Menagerie activity are also available.

There will be some event upgrades in Season of the Haunted. New loot will be added to Trials of Osiris, and Iron Banner will be overhauled, featuring the reintroduction of the Rift game mode, which is comparable to Capture the Flag. Finally, the new Event Card system is bringing some quality-of-life improvements to Solstice, the summer event.
