The trailer starts with a Guardian giving a report to the Vanguard. It jumps to some Mars gameplay — a planet that left the game over a year ago. The Guardian tells a story about witnessing a Hive Guardian rising for the first time, a major new enemy type in the upcoming expansion. There’s also a few brief clips of a battle against Savathun. Geoff Keighley of The Game Awards revealed that everything in the trailer takes place in the first mission of The Witch Queen.
The Witch Queen will bring a host of big changes to Destiny 2 next year, in addition to a new location, raid, and another year’s worth of seasons. Players will finally be able to craft their own weapons, and the game will also get a hybrid melee/projectile weapon type: Glaives. The Witch Queen will also start the process of upgrading player’s Light-based classes to the new Stasis system, starting with Void.
