Season of the Splicer, the newest season of Destiny 2, will begin next week, according to an announcement today from Bungie. See what the season has in store in the new Season of the Splicer trailer below.
Season of the Splicer Start and End Dates
Season of the Splicer will begin on May 11 and will continue until August 24, 2021. Guardians must join forces with Mithrax, one of the last alleged Splicers who can commune with machines, to learn the ways of the Sacred Splicer. During the season, players will team up with other Guardians to hack the Vex simulation in the new six-player matchmade activity, Override.
The iconic Vault of Glass raid from the first Destiny will also make its debut in Destiny 2 as part of Season of the Splicer. Bungie asserts that the new Vault of Glass “is not just a straight port,” as the new iteration will feature quality-of-life changes that aim “to make VoG feel more in line with player’s expectations today.”
Season pass owners will be granted access to the Cryosthesia 77K, a new Exotic Stasis Sidearm that is shown briefly in the Season of the Splicer trailer above. The new sidearm appears to fire a charged shot following a reload that allows players to freeze and shatter enemies. The new season will also introduce Armor Synthesis to Destiny 2, effectively broadening the appearance customization options for all players.
