The schedule for the Destiny 2 Warmind expansion release Bungie

The Destiny 2 Warmind expansion introduces Ana Bray, a long-lost Guardian that has forgotten her past. Thanks to the Golden Age warsats, the ice caps on Mars have begun to melt, freeing the Warmind Rasputin and a deadly new Hive army. It's up to you to help Ana recover her past, while fighting off the Hive and killing the army's giant worm-god Xol.

Along with all that story content, there are a number of new features added in the Warmind expansion. These include:

  • All-new Raid Lair: Spire of Stars
  • New themed weapons, armor and gear to earn
  • All-new ritual activity: Escalation Protocol
  • All-new relic weapon, The Valkyrie Javelin
  • New Strikes
  • New Story Missions and Adventures
  • A new destination set on the polar ice caps of Mars
  • Access to multiplayer arenas in Private Matches

Hotfix will also be available to download and install starting at 2 p.m. EDT. Patch notes for both the expansion and the hotfix will be released soon.
