Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Hands-Off Preview


Phil Hornshaw got an early preview at Destiny 2’s upcoming Witch Queen expansion, including a look at the campaign, weapon crafting, and Void 3.0.

Some of the best environments that have ever existed in the Destiny world appeared in the Dreadnaught–the massive warship, dungeon, and personal hellscape of Oryx, the Taken King. Exploring the Dreadnaught was the peak of the original Destiny, as it was both a horrifying place to find yourself trapped in, and a delightfully dense landscape full of mysteries to uncover. In the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion The Witch Queen, players are again delving into the throne world of a deadly Hive god. With Savathun’s throne world, though, developer Bungie looks to be pushing even harder on creating a twisted locale filled with frightening threats and deadly secrets.

We recently got a chance to see about an hour of The Witch Queen in action during a hands-off preview, in which Bungie took us through the new destination, demonstrated some elements of the expansion’s new story campaign, and showed how new things such as weapon crafting will work.
