Get ready for the ultimate Destiny 2 experience with the upcoming release of Season of the Deep Discover new challenges and rewards as you gear up for the battle of a lifetime Mark your calendars and be prepared for an adventure like no other

Even though Lightfall and Season of Defiance have been released, the beginning of Year 6 in Destiny 2 is just the tip of the iceberg. The Light and Darkness Saga will come to a climactic finale in The Final Shape, but players will have to wait until Q1 2024 for its release, unless Bungie decides to delay it.

Season of the Deep, the twenty-first Season in Destiny 2, is set to run from May to August. With a new Season on the horizon, players may be curious about the release date and what to expect from this upcoming update.

Season of the Deep is set to commence on May 23rd, with the download and play option available at 10:00 AM PST/1:00 PM EST. Prior to the season's initiation, Bungie has scheduled maintenance starting at 7:00 AM PST/10:00 AM EST for the necessary preparations. At 8:15 AM PST/11:15 AM EST, Destiny 2 will go offline for maintenance.

During the maintenance period, Destiny 2 players will not be able to access the new content until 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST. However, once the update has been downloaded and installed, players will be able to enjoy the latest additions. It is important to note that launch day issues may arise, as seen in previous releases such as Witch Queen and Lightfall, which experienced lengthy server queues upon launch. Given Destiny 2's recent instability, players should be prepared for potential challenges but remain hopeful for a smooth experience in Season of the Deep.

Moving onto what Season of the Deep has in store, new content will be added to the game.

Details about the content of Season of the Deep remain vague at best. Despite this, it has been revealed that Titan, one of Saturn's moons that mysteriously vanished at the end of Season of Arrivals in 2020, has somehow returned. Deputy Commander Sloane, an NPC from Year 1 of Destiny 2, has survived the ordeal and is seeking assistance in the teaser trailer released on May 11th.

Although information about the story of Season of the Deep is scarce, the quest for Winterbite has hinted at the importance of something on Titan. Furthermore, the release of an epilogue mission for the Lightfall campaign will shed light on the enigmatic Veil.

As for seasonal activities, Bungie has yet to disclose any specifics on what players can anticipate. However, they did unveil a screenshot of an old Golden Age facility submerged underwater. This has sparked rumors of a potential swimming feature being added to the game, but Bungie has not confirmed this.

In addition to fresh weapons, armor, and cosmetics, a brand-new dungeon will make its debut this Friday at 10:00 AM PST/1:00 PM EST. Bungie has chosen to keep the details of this new dungeon under wraps, preferring for players to uncover it on their own.

Destiny 2 is currently available on the Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
