Bungie has pulled back the curtain on the next Destiny 2 expansion today, which is called Lightfall, and it'll be coming to all platforms including Xbox on February 28th, 2023.

The expansion takes players to Neptune, described as "a destination unlike any you've explored in Destiny 2", complete with a standalone campaign that promises to "expand the limits" of what players can expect from the game.

Here's a bit of how Bungie has described Lightfall today:

"Prevent the apocalypse by racing Emperor Calus to Neptune and explore a totally new destination, the secret metropolis of Neomuna. This city was untouched by the Collapse, so its pristine buildings and neon-filled streets are very different from what players have experienced before. There are new places to explore and new characters to meet, like the Cloud Striders, the superhuman heroes that serve as Neptunians’ last line of defense."

"Stopping the end times won’t be an easy task. That’s why Guardians will have a new power in their hands to fight back. Strand is the second Darkness-based subclass, and it’s all about consciousness, fluidity, control over your surroundings, and manipulation of your enemies. Tap into a new (and green) spectrum of reality, pull strength from a never-before-seen power, and shape new abilities to defeat Calus and his Shadow Legion."

In addition, Destiny 2: Lightfall will offer the choice of Legendary Mode for "powerful gear and extra rewards", and there are also new activities, a new raid, new Exotics and much more. Pre-orders are opening today for all platforms.

There are lots more features coming to Destiny 2 over the next year as well, plus the Shadowkeep, Beyond Light, and The Witch Queen expansions will all be playable for free for the next week until August 30th.

You can find out even more details about all of these announcements over at the official Bungie blog.
