Destiny 2: The Final Shape – New Subclass, Faction & More

Last week during The Final Shape developer gameplay preview, Bungie revealed the latest information on the development of The Final Shape and hinted at what’s coming next for Destiny 2. Guardians will finally enter The Pale Heart of the Traveler on June 5 to chase after the Witness, wielding new powers to take on the ultimate enemy. The preview showed off a new Prismatic Subclass that combines the powers of the Light and Darkness, the first-ever exotic class items in Destiny 2, and the Dread, the Witness’s new enemy faction. If you missed the gameplay preview, you can catch up here.

Alongside the three new Light Supers previously announced, Guardians will wield the Light and Darkness together for the first time to unleash the Prismatic subclass. This subclass introduces new options to enhance and customise each playstyle with the combination of multiple element types. In addition, each class will get a unique grenade that combines multiple subclass elements: Warlocks will have Stasis/Void, Titans will have Strand/Arc, and Hunters will have Solar/Stasis.

Players will be able to equip an Exotic class item. This means that Hunter’s cloaks, Titan’s marks, and Warlock’s bonds will have Exotic-level perks for the first time. These perks will be randomised, taking two features from existing Exotic class items (even some belonging to other classes) to enhance the Guardian’s ability to customise their gameplay.

The new enemy faction being added with The Final Shape is the Dread faction, a fierce group of combatants with new abilities to shake up the fight. In addition to the Tormentor introduced in Lightfall and the previously revealed Subjugators, the Witness will unleash the new Grim, Husk, Attendant, and Weaver units:

  • Grim: A highly mobile flying enemy that slows and suppresses a Guardian’s abilities if they get too close.
  • Husk: An acrobatic melee bruiser that sends a deployable geist enemy toward you unless you hit their weak spot with a final blow.
  • Attendant and Weaver: By wielding Stasis and Strand, respectively, these units can instantly change the flow of the encounter and force Guardians to pay attention to their positioning on the battlefield.

Destiny 2: Into the Light is now available to all players for free. This new two-month content update issues in a rollout of new content, including the wave-defence Onslaught activity; iconic weapons with standard and limited-edition variants; the new Hall of Champions social space; reprised The Whisper and Zero Hour Exotic missions; a new raid boss gauntlet called Pantheon; fresh rewards; and more. It’s time to jump back in Guardians.
