Though it set a new peak concurrent player total on Steam, Destiny 2: Lightfall has received mixed impressions from fans and critics. A lot is towards the story, which hyped the arrival of The Witness and the Black Fleet but ended with many questions. Bungie responded about the cliffhanger ending, acknowledging that there are “still plenty of questions left unanswered.”
However, with Season of Defiance also beginning, it said, “This is just the beginning of the next year of storytelling that will connect the events of Lightfall and The Final Shape.” The developer said it “can’t wait” for players to learn more about the origins and objective of The Witness, along with “the ways we can thwart it and its disciples” in Season of the Deep, Season 22 and Season 23.
The response to this has also been negative – a highly upvoted post (which contains spoilers) on the Destiny subreddit criticized the developer for asking players to learn more in the upcoming seasons after dropping a major expansion.
As such, the next step in the story should be after the Root of Nightmares raid, which goes live on March 10th. The World’s First race returns, though the Contest modifier will be live for 48 hours. Stay tuned for more details when it goes live later this week.
