Destiny 2: Beyond Light is finally live after a short delay. The expansion and its current season, the Season of the Hunt, takes Guardians to Europa to vanquish the renegade Fallen. It’s also on this frozen moon where players will finally be able to wield a fourth element: Stasis. This condensed form of Darkness acts akin to ice, so expect to freeze and chill enemies to death.
With lots of new weapons, armors, quests, activities, and even a raid to look forward to, you’re bound to have your hands full. Let’s just hope that we’re all able to log on since there are connection issues at the moment. In any case, here’s our guides and features hub to help you out.
