Bungie have announced the newest season in Destiny 2 today, where players will get to enjoy new Strikes, earn new gear, fight in the seasonal Battlegrounds activity, and take up the Hammer of Proving against the Cabal.
In Season 13, Guardians will jump into the Battlegrounds, a three-player matchmade activity where they will engage in ritual combat against Caiatl’s chosen warriors. At the start of Season 13, the Devil’s Lair and Fallen S.A.B.E.R. Strikes will return from the original Destiny. Later in the season the new Proving Grounds strike will unlock, pitting humanity’s champions against the Cabal’s best to determine the fate of the Last City.
This will be the 13th season, which will introduce Battlegrounds, a three-player matchmaking activity that pits guardians against Caiatl’s chosen warriors. A brand new proving ground strike will also be included down the line, whilst Devil’s Lair and Fallen S.A.B.E.R. Strikes will be making a return from the original Destiny.
With the Pyramids and Xivu Arath destabilizing the system, Empress Caiatl, leader of the Cabal and daughter of Calus, seeks an alliance. But when she demands more than Zavala can offer, negotiations collapse, and Guardians must become the tip of the spear that strikes at her growing war council. Season of the Chosen will kick off on February 9th and run until May 11th.
