Destiny 2: Forsaken's Dreaming City Gets New Strike, Mission, And More After First Raid Clear

One week after the launch of Future 2: Forsaken, the Last Wish Raid followed. Whereas most gamers weren’t fairly but able to face the problem, probably the most devoted gamers had floor their method as much as the meet it, and early this morning, one fireteam grew to become the primary on this planet to defeat Riven of a Thousand Voices, the raid’s closing boss, and incomes themselves a neat little belt. And now they’ve gone and ruined all the things.

Gamers who log on this morning might be greeted with a not-so-cryptic message telling gamers that the crew who’d slain Riven have really achieved her a favor. SPOILERS FOR DESTINY 2: FORSAKEN– In Forsaken’s marketing campaign, Riven is the mastermind of the entire battle, corrupting Uldren Sov’s thoughts and coercing him to satisfy her wishes, which appear to have culminated in corrupting the Dreaming Metropolis. Defeating her within the raid has unleashed a robust curse on town.

Because of this, anybody who enters the Dreaming Metropolis now ought to discover some floating black dots within the air – an indication that the realm is slowly turning into corrupted. The watchtower additionally sports activities a brand new coat of Taken “paint.”

Bungie initially hinted one thing like this could occur of their unique trailer for Forsaken outlining all of the options of the enlargement. In it, Bungie talked about the Dreaming Metropolis could be a “cyclical, endgame place,” the place totally different actions unfurl themselves over time. And the primary raid clear appears to have kicked one of many cycles off.

Gamers now have various new issues to do within the Dreaming Metropolis. There is a new story mission, referred to as “The Damaged Courier,” which gamers can decide up from Petra Venj, the seller of the locale, which has you extracting one among Petra Venj’s allies from hazard. It has a 520 energy requirement and presents highly effective gear. There’s additionally a brand new strike, referred to as “The Corrupted,” which has you enterprise an identical goal, however this time for somebody near Mara Sov, the unique queen of The Reef. Gamers are reporting that finishing the third tier of issue within the Blind Properly permits them to insert an unstable cost of sunshine to unlock a brand new, heroic tier for the exercise. Lastly, a brand new map, referred to as “Cathedral of Scars” (pictured prime) has been unlocked for gambit.

There’s positive to be a couple of extra secrets and techniques to be discovered proper now, and, if Bungie’s hints a couple of cycle are something to go by, we could also be getting extra surprises within the coming weeks.


Rolling out options over the course of the enlargement’s life is super-cool, however I am curious as to how lengthy Bungie will have the ability to stick with it. Hopefully till the primary DLC launches, to maintain up this thrilling tempo of recent content material. Within the meantime, I will maintain grinding to so I can really do the raid. Hopefully my subsequent 4 highly effective gear drops will not be as redundant because the final 4!
