Players can still access the content until February 22, at which point the campaign as well as the Tangled Shore desination will leave the game. This is the same day as the launch of Year 5 of Destiny 2, which includes The Witch Queen expansion. Bungie says Forsaken’s departure also makes way for new features including weapon crafting, a Legendary difficulty campaign option, a new weapon type, and more.
If you haven’t played the Forsaken campaign, it will be available for free to all Destiny players beginning on December 7.
Bungie created the Destiny Content Vault last year as a way to begin recycling content from Destiny 1 and 2. Last year, Bungie added three campaigns to the vault: The Red War, Curse of Osiris, and Warmind. Besides campaigns, the vault can also include strikes, gambit maps, raids, and other content.
It’s a big time for Bungie’s universe. Besides the upcoming Witch Queen expansion, Destiny may be expanding beyond games into TV shows, movies, and more. And, it just got a little easier to enjoy cross-play, as Bungie recently added voice chat to cross-play in Destiny 2. Bungie also just removed a controversial employee contract clause as a step to improve diversity in the workplace.
