Bungie is best-known for developing video games like Halo, but right now, the company is gearing up to release the third expansion pack for Destiny 2.

Go in-depth with the Bungie development team to learn how Destiny 2: Forsaken changes the game this fall.

The original Destiny followed a similar trajectory.

The Dreaming City was the highlight of the stream though, as it will serve as both a new endgame area for those who have completed everything else, as well as the home of the new raid.

Kicking off Destiny 2's Year 2, Forsaken introduces two brand-new areas to explore, a new mode that mixes PvE and PvP combat, and a new raid in an ever-evolving destination called The Dreaming City.

The Fallen are going to be the bad guys though, so those hoping for any genuinely new enemies or planets are going to be disappointed as usual.

The Scorn is the "most malevolent force" in the Tangled Shore, with the Barons as the top dogs of the Scorn. NetEase could be adopting the Tencent approach of investment, where NetEase gets to do whatever they want with future titles in China, and Bungie oversees the rest of the world. They've also teased a new Masterwork system that will allow players to level up their weapons invest in their weapons. The game will also be adding new UI functionality with the "Collections" system, which will allow players to see and keep track of exactly what meaningful loot, such as armor and weapons, they have yet to obtain.

It won't be the only new content this year though, with three other "premium content releases" planned. Bungie will tell more about Forsaken's story during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next week.

The famed studio has been working on Destiny since at least 2010, releasing the first game in 2014 and the second past year.

What's the difference? According to Bungie, these will focus more on gameplay content and less on cinematics. Forsaken will set you back $40, while Forsaken plus the Annual Pass is $70. While it wasn't made implicitly clear, it does appear that the Scorn are an all-new enemy race/faction to fight, changing our expectations of how we've come to do battle in Destiny 2.
