Destiny 2: Forsaken is due to land on September 4th, exactly one year after Destiny 2 launched in 2017. The expansion will deliver massive changes to the online game, including the Dreaming City, the largest endgame experience ever to grace Destiny according to the Bungie.

Below you can find a fresh trailer showcasing the Dreaming City, but that’s only part of the changes of the expansion. For instance, earlier this week Bungie hosted a livestream to discuss combat changes in Destiny 2: Forsaken; below is a recap from the fine folks at Reddit.
