Destiny 2 is offering a snippet of the Lightfall expansion ahead of time, and making it easier to simply suit up and play games.
Ahead of the Destiny 2 Lightfall expansion, which is currently slated to launch in February around the world, Bungie's changing things up for players. As a taster for what's to come, the cost of all standard Armor Mods is being removed later today on January 11, making the grind to obtain some of the better Armor Mods out there significantly easier.
As a preview of things to come in Lightfall, we have some exciting updates coming soon.Tomorrow, all standard Armor Mods are unlocked for everyone! With big changes coming to buildcrafting in Lightfall, we want to give everyone a chance to enjoy all mods in their current state.January 10, 2023
Starting a little later next week, the Legendary Shard cost for all Trials of Osiris, Iron Banner, Crucible, and Gambit weapons and armor items is decreasing for good. From then on, it'll merely cost you 25 Legendary Shards for each of the aforementioned weapon and armor items, making it easier for players to simply suit up and head into games.
Finally, Grandmaster Nightfalls are kicking off next week on January 17. Bungie isn't quite ready to reveal the full details yet, but the Grandmaster Power cap is effectively being restructured, ultimately making Grandmaster activities more approachable for players, while maintaining the rock-hard difficulty levels the setting has become known for.
There's little over a month to go until the Destiny 2 Lightfall release date of February 28, 2023, for all platforms. For more on what to expect from the expansion, you can head over to our extensive Destiny 2 Lightfall interview with Bungie leads for a deeper dive.
