Bungie just revealed what’s next for Destiny 2 in a jam-packed livestream, and the future is looking pretty exciting. First up, Bungie officially unveiled Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, the game’s next big Forsaken-level update, which takes players back to the moon to battle a shadowy new threat.

As the heroes of the last safe city turned their attention to frontiers beyond the protection of the Vanguard, new Nightmares have emerged from the shadows of our long-forgotten Moon. Called forth by the haunting visions from her tormented past, Eris Morn has returned and unleashed something that once slumbered beneath the lunar surface – a long dormant power even she cannot control. Return to the Moon. Journey deep into a mysterious enemy citadel. Help Eris slay these nightmares before they reach out beyond the Moon to cast humanity back into an age of darkness.
