the launch of The Witch Queen in February, a lot of new content was released destination 2 for players to dedicate themselves to, whether in the legendary campaign or the new attack, Vow of the Disciple. On the PvP side though, Crucible didn’t show as much love as there were no new maps or additional modes, with the only content being two older maps being brought back into rotation. Season 17 is looking to change that trend with many new Crucible changes, including a new map within Savathun’s Throne World.
destination 2the latest expansion, The Witch Queen, was released in February 2022 and pitted the guardians against the Hive’s god of cunning, Savathun, who somehow gained the Light. The Guardians must venture to her Throne World to learn how she was reborn into the Traveler’s Light and what her plans are for it before it’s too late. Among the Guardians and Savathun are the Hive Guardians of her Lucent Brood, Hive is also reborn in the light and wielding powers similar to the ones the Guardians have used for years.
In the latest This Week at Bungie, the studio outlined some changes coming to Crucible next season, such as progression reworks for Iron Banner and the return of Rift to the game. Bungie said in the post that, to coincide with Rift’s return, the new map titled Disjunction would join the rotation in season 17 “for all 6v6, 3v3, and free-for-all modes.” The studio describes the map as one of the “biggest maps yet” and is set in the swamps of Throne World near the damaged Pyramid ship, offering three combat lanes and plenty of zones for short-, medium-, and long-range encounters.
A new Crucible map within Throne World makes sense, as the location has been met with largely positive feedback from destination 2 community and critics alike. The location design provides Bungie with many unique locations to use in map design, whether it’s Savathun’s castle or the damaged pyramid that houses Rhulk and the shell of the first worm god.
Also, the addition of Disjunction is a big deal for destination 2The PvP community of , which players can argue, has been hungry for new content for some time now. For clarity, Disjunction will be the first new map added to Crucible since Fragment, which was added in 2019 shadowkeep expansion. Since then, the game has lost 11 maps as part of the bulk content vault when beyond the light was released in 2020 and saw the return of the domed maps, Eternity and Vostok, with queen of witches.
destination 2 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
