With Destiny 2 The Witch Queen in its assorted seasons in the rear view mirror 2023's lightfall expansion has some big shoes to fill improved storytelling new gameplay modes and the ensuing seasonal content made the witch Queen expansion a standout experience and lightfall doesn't manage to reach the high bar it's set Destiny 2's latest add-on introduces major gameplay tweaks an exciting new subclass to play around with and plenty of fresh exotic Gear For Your Arsenal but this is overshadowed by a disappointing campaign and a lifeless neptunian destination that make for an underwhelming combination

Thank you

Lightfall doesn't waste any time setting the stage taking place shortly after the devastating events of season of the serif after a quick slideshow narrated by the silky smooth voice of Lance reddick's Commander Zavala which brings everyone up to speed it is all hands on deck as the witness finally makes its long-awaited arrival and the solar system to battle The Traveler from the opening Mission the action unfolds at a Breakneck Pace as a new Shadow Legion of cabal led by a reborn kallus set a course for Neptune and you're hitching a ride alongside them in an effort to prevent a doomsday scenario from occurring Bungie has spoken several times about adopting an 80s action movie Vibe for lightful and that influence is felt everywhere on Neptune's primary location neomuna from a city bathed in neon lights in a training montage as you master your new powers to the introduction of a cast of characters that include analogs of loose canon space cops Maverick rookies and grizzled Veterans just one week away from retirement lightful wears its not so subtle Inspirations proudly however at the same time the campaign has the depth of a direct to VHS action flick the story is frustratingly vague as you chased down a parrot causal McGuffin and counters slightly upgraded space rhinos and grappled with emotional moments that feel hollow and unearned lightfall has an exhilarating start but by the time you've experienced all eight of its campaign missions it feels more like the unsatisfying storytelling of vanilla Destiny than a memorable 80s action picture after nine years of being promised answers and chasing every lead imaginable lightful essentially passes the buck to the rest of this year's seasonal content and 2024 is the final shape much of the story is focused on the veil an object of immense power that you chase throughout the campaign and is said to be the most important artifact in the universe however the reasons for this are not explained kallus who has become the newest disciple of the witness is as grandiose as ever and
now resembles say Pacific

Rim Kaiju decked out and armored kitchen appliances despite all of this ultimately he's nothing more than a hedonistic bullet sponge Who falls far below the witch Queen salvathune the gold standard for great villains in Bungie sci-fi sandbox after being built up as Destiny 2's next major threat throughout season of The Haunted kallus is unfortunately treated like an Expendable henchman serving the witness instead of the grandiose conqueror that fans had come to know love and loathe over the years

Legendary mode which dials up the challenge considerably is a recipe for sweaty palms and victories that feel hard earned as you overcome seemingly impossible odds the new gameplay tweaks and mechanics introduced in lightfall pair well with the legendary Campaign which have several exhilarating moments that can easily slot into a highlight reel from a dramatic Escape through kallus Flagship to taking part in a cabal civil war that throws everything in the cosmic kitchen sink at you life Falls campaign is mechanically a fun Gauntlet to charge through as you master strand even if the narrative drops the ball frequently your new Darkness subclass strand is introduced without much fanfare frequently appearing in the campaign as a major source of power that's barely elaborated on while 2020 is beyond light expansion made unlocking the stasis subclass aggravating the manner in which the first Darkness subclass was introduced at least felt like a meaningful moment for Destiny 2. but in lightfall strand hits the scene after you poke around a random interdimensional Wormhole and it's barely elaborated on and is primarily a set of reality unraveling training wheels at your given control of periodically throughout the campaign until you unlock it full afterwards at least the quest surrounding lightfall's campaign do a better job of fleshing out the expansion and providing solid reasons for you to go pick a fight with time traveling murder machines Destiny veterans will be used to this grind but between New Missions to claim the latest Exotics and the weekly season of defiant storyline which is technically not part of lightfall itself the story told here is far more gripping and cohesive nyamuna the new Patrol Zone where you'll Master the art of strand is a beautiful but desolate location to explore thanks to the populace being conveniently placed in the Cry of sleep and their minds uploaded into new Munoz Cloud servers The Secret City that survived Humanity's first golden age cataclysm is pretty to look at but has a desolate theme to its design despite it being positioned as an extravagant Metropolis built by Humanity's Golden Age explorers it is a location that lacks the magic that made sabatin's Throne world or Beyond lights

Europa such standout locations it does have all the usual trappings of a destiny location from Lost sectors to the new terminal overload public activity but its neon lit facade can't hide a lifeless design that is mostly populated by familiar public events and patrols that rarely deviate from the established formula that Destiny 2 has been using since 2017. put simply neomuna just doesn't have the X Factor needed to make it an engaging location to explore thankfully however the actual structure of lightfall's missions make good use of the city to provide intense missions that'll have you on the edge of your seat as for using strand this new Darkness subclass succeeds in shaking up the destiny sandbox with its unique set of powers for each Guardian class Titan Berserkers run through enemies with friends and Claws warlock brood Weavers unleash a small army of threadlings to do their lethal bidding and Hunter threadrunners combine elegant silk strike attacks with graceful agility like stasis and the reworked light 3.0 subclasses strand also benefits from a system of aspects and fragments that are gradually unlocked after you finish the main campaign so far there have been some tantalizing builds to experiment with and combined with the right exotic seasonal artifact mods and armor mods strand positions itself as an incredibly powerful tool for destroying cannon fodder enemies and weakening larger foes with my main warlock I've set loose armies of threadlings while wiping out entire mobs of foes in one Almighty blast using strands to spend and sever debuffs to stay alive and shrug off enemy fire the key appeal of this new subclass is its grapple feature an ability that replaces your grenade with the option to latch onto mystical anchor points no matter where you are and swing into action if you're prepared to sacrifice one of your key explosive Powers The Strand grapple is a fun addition to Destiny 2 that has plenty of utility allowing you to Grapple straight into enemies before you unleash a special melee attack or if you're feeling brave enough hitch a ride on a Titan using their Thunder crash super right before they eat the enemies in front of them into Oblivion opposing Guardians are the tormentors deadly adversaries who shake up the flow of combat with their unrelenting might and ability to steal your powers if they get too close

Foreign ERS have a response to every attack that you throw at them and learning how to cut them down to size is a refreshing challenge to take on Destiny 2's core gameplay still feels as polished as ever and in typical bungee tradition what a major expansion arrives hundreds of quality of

life changes have further refined the moment-to-moment Gunplay the developer has been releasing exhaustive breakdowns on these changes which range from granular tweaks and the introduction of new systems designed to bring new players to the worlds of Destiny 2 to a completely overhauled build crafting system and the highly requested inclusion of character loadouts for Long Time Players the armor mod system is one of the most drastic changes to player investment gone are the days of transmitting into 801's Workshop to see if she has that one mod that you've been looking for as Bungie has introduced a new suite of mods that can work on their respective armor pieces regardless of type Affinity this is Bungie pressing the reset key on loadouts built up over years of previous expansions and Seasons creating an even playing field for players of all skill levels to experiment with as they create their perfect Guardian build the armor mods mechanic has also adopted a few ideas from the transmox system creating a more intuitive menu for you to slot mods in and quickly preview your build before you commit to it jettisoning clunky menus and making good use of a revamped seasonal artifact means you can get into fighting shape much more quickly that Simplicity makes Destiny 2 more inviting and with the option to save and switch between several loadouts instantly lightfo's gameplay enhancements create an exciting foundation for Bungie to build upon through this year's seasonal content Guardian ranks are another positive step forward creating a defined Journey forward for seasoned players and kindergartens alike this replacement for the triumphs page essentially gives you an optional more linear path forward to experience everything that Destiny 2 has to offer ranging from campaigns to establish PVE activities Gambit and PVP veteran players will automatically get a high ranking on the system and working your way up to the truly impressive Guardian rank of 11 requires not only skill in every facet of the game but recognition of your contributions toward making the experience better for other players as well Destiny 2's lightfall expansion does not make it good first impression but beneath a threadbare story that relies on an exasperatingly fuzzy motivation for your guardian it still feels mechanically satisfying to dive into comparing it to the standard of Excellence that 2022's the witch Queen Saga established only exposes the numerous shortcomings of lightfall and that's a shadow that the next year of seasonal content will need to step out of if Bungie wants to develop the expansion into something more than a middle of Road entry that stumbles toward a final showdown that has been a decade in the making foreign

Lightfall's new gameplay mechanics and evolved systems position it as a turning point for Destiny 2, but the expansion is let down by the poor narrative of its campaign.
