New Fields of Battle
Now that you simply’re caught up with the story, we should always have a look at what’s new in Season of the Chosen (as a result of there’s quite a bit) which runs from February 9 to Could 11. With foes planting their flags on a number of locations, Guardians should develop their energy to say victory on new Battlegrounds and in new strikes.
The brand new Seasonal exercise calls on Guardians to face Caiatl’s chosen warriors who’ve taken up arms to defend the glory of the empire. Rise and face them as a champion for humanity.
Season of the Chosen kicks off with two Battlegrounds on Nessus and Europa. After that, extra Battlegrounds open within the following weeks. They’re replayable matchmade actions, so group up with some pals or make some new ones by hopping within the queue and becoming a member of a fireteam.
These three strikes change into out there throughout Season of the Chosen:
- Satan’s Lair – Discover and destroy the only, exalted Servitor that sustains the Fallen Home of Devils within the Cosmodrome.
- Fallen S.A.B.E.R. – Rush to the help of the AI Warmind Rasputin as he broadcasts a plea for assist throughout the system.
- Proving Grounds – The champions of humanity face the champions of the Cabal to find out the destiny of the Final Metropolis.
The primary two strikes open on the primary day of the Season, whereas Proving Grounds lands a number of weeks later to coincide with the Seasonal story.
Guardians want a strong arsenal to have interaction with Caiatl, Xivu Arath, and the Darkness. To construct that arsenal, a cache of recent and reissued weapons is being added to the loot pool. Between Exotics, Legendaries, and ritual weapons, there are over 25 weapons to gather.
The brand new Seasonal weapon is Ticuu’s Divination, an Unique Bow that fires a number of arrows with a single draw of the bowstring. Every arrow properties in on an enemy, dealing Photo voltaic injury and placing a blow for humanity.
Each Ticuu’s Divination and the Seasonal armor set are immediately unlocked for Season Cross holders. Gamers who dive into the Season at no cost may have entry to each the armor and the Bow by leveling up and unlocking them (and a bunch of different rewards) through the brand new Seasonal rewards monitor.
Donning the armor and wielding the weapons of a champion is simply the start. Regardless that many of the Vanguard’s enemies solely want one outfit, one weapon, and one goal: Kill Guardian; Guardians should be a bit extra versatile. That’s the place the H.E.L.M. is available in. The H.E.L.M. is a brand new location within the Tower the place Guardians can meet with allies, plan their subsequent assault, and unlock new rewards.
Talking of recent rewards, Umbral Engrams are again.
Umbral Engrams assist you to get the right variations of your favourite gear. Followers of Future will fondly bear in mind these engrams from Season of Arrivals – and now they’re again with a twist.
Umbral Engrams nonetheless allow you to management the rewards you unlock, however a brand new sport characteristic referred to as Prismatic Lenses will allow you to management what you unlock to an excellent larger diploma. So, regardless that you used to decide on in case you received armor or a weapon, and even the pool of armor or weapon you needed to roll from, now there’s much more management.
Give it some thought this fashion:
- You have got a thriller field with a dessert in it (already superior).
- If it was an Umbral Field, you possibly can select to make the dessert a donut.
- If it was an Umbral Field with a Prismatic Lens, you possibly can make the dessert a chocolate donut.
However clearly, as a substitute of a dessert, it’s a weapon or piece of armor. There are a number of Lenses to gather and each helps you to management your rewards in numerous methods.

Compete, earn themed rewards, keep watch over the leaderboards, and when the mud settles, the best-performing class will get a trophy that stands within the Tower for the remainder of the yr.
Titans took the gold final yr however based mostly on what I’ve heard Hunters and Warlocks say, that was a fluke. Regardless of the case, the time has come for the Titan’s trophy to return down and for each class to get a brand new probability at glory.
There’s a brand new Silver Bundle that helps gamers purchase Season of the Chosen, seize an unique emote, and pocket sufficient Silver to hit the Final Metropolis in Eververse fashion. Purchase yours as we speak and unlock the For the Viewers Legendary emote.
