Warmind, the second expansion for Destiny 2, is scheduled to be released May 8 — just two weeks from now — and Destiny developer Bungie is finally showing it off in a reveal livestream today.

Bungie will host the livestream on its Twitch channel, as usual, starting at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. It appears that this will be the only such event to discuss Warmind, which would be a departure from Bungie’s past practices; the studio typically holds two or three livestreams to detail future Destiny updates. You can watch the show below, and if you’re waiting for the stream to begin, you can watch the 30-second Warmind trailer that Bungie published yesterday.

Since there will apparently be a single Warmind stream, this one is scheduled to feature many guests from the Destiny development team at Bungie. They’ll be discussing many facets of the expansion, such as the Hellas Basin on Mars — a new location on a planet that was featured in the original Destiny but isn’t currently available in Destiny 2 — as well as Escalation Protocol, which appears to be a wave-based horde-style mode, and updates to exotic gear and the Crucible.

Destiny 2: Warmind follows December’s Curse of Osiris. A third expansion for the game is set for release this fall.
