Destiny 2’s Eververse will be more player-friendly in Forsaken

Tess is coming back, but she’ll be a bit more predictable this time

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

The Eververse, Destiny 2’s real-money cosmetic shop, will be updated with the release of Destiny 2: Forsaken and season 4. The system will be seeing quite a few changes between season 3 and 4, Bungie recently explained, with many of the updates focused on making acquiring gear for free a bit easier.

Players will now be able to log on to Bungie’s website and see their own purchase history, as well as the roll percentages of each item in the Eververse engram.

The prismatic matrix will also be making a return. The weekly inventory that gave a guaranteed item from a small grouping took a short break at the end of season 3. Players will still be able to earn a Prismatic Facet — one of the items used to unlock the Matrix — for free each week.

Along with the usual exotic emotes, ornaments, sparrows, ships and ghosts, Tess will now offer players Ghost projections, which are little holograms that appear above your ghost when you have it out. Legendary weapons will also be getting ornaments from Eververse, although it’s currently unclear exactly how they will work or what weapons will have them.

Perhaps the biggest change to the Eververse this season comes in the form of Eververse bounties. When a player earns an engram from Tess, it’ll drop a single bounty note as well as its usual goodies. These notes can then be turned into Tess to buy a bounty. Her bounty rotation will change weekly, although players will always be able to buy as many bounties as they have notes.

These bounties come in tiers, and players can have one of each tier in their inventory at a time. Tier one bounties cost a single note, with tier two bounties costing three notes. The Tier three bounties cost six notes. Each of the bounty tiers offer greater rewards, with 20, 70 and 150 Bright Dust, respectively. The bounties will expire if not completed within seven days.

This increase in Bright Dust distribution should help players buy what they want from Tess directly each week. It’ll also come in handy for keeping player’s inventories filled with the shaders and sparrows they want, since Destiny 2’s new Collection tab will also use Bright Dust as a currency.

While Bungie announced that players won’t start earning Bright Engrams again until they reach level 50, it also made a quality of life change that should keep players sane after the Collection launches. All unacquired Eververse items from previous seasons will be hidden from the Collection, meaning that players will never be taunted by an item they never were able to earn.

Destiny 2: Forsaken will be released for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Sept. 4.
