Destiny 2's Season of the Hunt is live now, with Wrathborn Hunts beginning next week

By Heidi Nicholas,
Season of the Hunt is live now in Destiny 2, running for the next three months or so until February 9th, 2021. Plus, according to the Season Calendar, the Season Mission and Wrathborn Hunts begin next week.

Bungie breaks down the Season of the Hunt in full over on the Destiny 2 site. The story for this season is that planets have vanished while "Xivu Arath, the Hive God of War boldly moves to seize power. If left unchecked, she threatens a solar system already in turmoil. While investigating the growing threat, Osiris finds himself in need of help. Fortunately, a new – and yet familiar – ally known as the Crow joins you in the rescue." Hive shrines have started to appear, and you will need to work with the Spider and the Crow to "build a device that will draw Xivu Arath’s lieutenants out of hiding... upgrade your Lure, snare your prey, and challenge the Hive god."

The Season Pass is now live, and there is quite a bit of content involved. The parts that are free to all players include the new season progress track and rewards, a new Artifact and mods, The Dawning, Iron Banner (the first of which takes place on the 8th of December,) seasonal armour sets, and the new Exotic Duality shotgun. Season Pass owners, meanwhile, can also look forward to the Hawkmoon Exotic Hand Cannon quest, the Wrathborn hunts, and bonus XP.

Empire Hunts have already begun, so you can start doing quests for Variks to improve your rewards from these activities, while today, the 13th of November, sees adept weapons added to trials. On the 17th of November, the Season Mission and Wrathborn Hunts begin, followed by the Deep Stone Crypt raid on the 21st. There's more content throughout November and December, with The Dawning running from the 15th of December until the 5th of January, 2021.

Bungie also announced that The Trials of Osiris have been delayed until November 27th. This means that if you want to try and get your hands on the new Adept versions that were supposed to be added to Trials today, you'll have to wait another two weeks to go for these new flawless rewards.

Destiny 2's next-gen upgrade isn't coming until December 8th, but if you've got a shiny new Xbox Series X|S and are looking for something to show it off with, don't forget to check our list of every optimised day one release for Xbox Series X|S.
