As we method Future 2 reset tomorrow, we’ve already gotten the reply to a variety of questions we’ve had up to now about when sure occasions can be coming in Season of the Misplaced. In contrast to previous seasons, we’ve solely had a imprecise calendar to go on with few precise dates, however lately we’ve seen the short-term finish of the primary storyline, the arrival of Grandmaster strikes and Legendary Shattered Realm.
Legendary Astral Alignment drops tomorrow, I consider (which with one additional chest as a reward, I don’t consider it’s price doing). However after that?
All indications are that the following seven weeks till the thirtieth Anniversary Occasion are…empty? Barring any surprises.
There may be merely nothing else on the calendar moreover what we can have by tomorrow, GMs and legendary seasonal exercise choices. That leaves a big hole of time till December 7 when the thirtieth Anniversary begins with features a free new 6 man exercise and a paid dungeon, in order that will likely be a time we are able to get again to consuming new content material.
This isn’t a large shock, on condition that we all the time knew this was going to be a six month lengthy season, and there was going to be some downtime. It additionally could assist clarify why Bungie was so wanting to nerf Competition of the Misplaced farming, so it lasts longer, because it’s schedule to run till November 2. However as far as we all know there may be nothing deliberate for the whole month of November, previous your normal Iron Banner and Trials. At the very least nothing listed on the calendar. I suppose that may be a great second to debut some type of secret, however I wouldn’t financial institution on it.
That is, after all, advantageous, and I’m not bringing this as much as complain. I don’t assume that Future wants “stuff to do” each single reset, and naturally in case you are dying to play, I’m positive there’s some exercise you might farm to get rolls of some dungeon or raid weapon you’re lacking, or get some seal you don’t have. That is the place self-directed objectives come into play. November can be an enormous month for recreation releases between Name of Responsibility, Battlefield and Forza, main into Halo Infinite which launches virtually on high of the Anniversary Occasion (annoyingly). And everybody has a backlog of stuff that’s already out they’ve been that means to get to.
Then, this can lead into one other stretch of time the place we merely don’t know what’s going to occur. If the thirtieth Anniversary stuff is concentrated into December, and that’s when The Dawning is simply too. January and February, main as much as the Witch Queen (February 22) will include Moments of Triumph and the ultimate story beat of the season. Previous that, once more, nothing is scheduled that we learn about.
I do assume that someplace in the middle of this six months can be a good time to drop a secret factor. Perhaps not some type of large, full-on Zero Hour quest, however I’d love for there to be one other neighborhood puzzle or one thing that springs up out of nowhere and results in a brand new unique or one thing. There appears to be loads of house to insert one thing like that, and but after all, the explanation this season is so lengthy is as a result of extra time was wanted to work on The Witch Queen itself, which stays the precedence.
All I’m saying is don’t be stunned if the sport “dies” for a month or two till the thirtieth Anniversary, after which slows means down after that stuff settles till Witch Queen. Future did a great job with about two months of story content material and new debuts, however we’re heading right into a “break” interval the place it’s time to atone for outdated stuff, or just play different video games. Don’t be stunned when reset doesn’t deliver an entire lot the following 7 weeks or so.
