The new expansion appears for Destiny 2: Tonight the darkest chapter of Destiny 2 history starts with The Witch Queen. In the expansion of the MMO shooter, players fight against the eponymous witch queen Savathûn in a surreal throne world and can forge their own weapons for the first time.

Today Bungie released the latest chapter in the genre-defining Destiny franchise, Destiny 2: The Witch-Queen, coming to all available platforms. The Witch Queen is the first installment in the final trilogy of Destiny 2's "Light and Darkness" saga, in which Guardians must discover powerful new abilities and face extraordinary challenges in order to protect the solar system from the enemies of mankind. Along with the launch of the expansion, a new season full of new content will be released today with the Season of the Risen.

The throne world awaits

Both The Witch-Queen and Season of the Risen expansions follow Guardians in their quest to reclaim the Light from the Hive goddess Savathûn. After more than a year of deceptions by the Witch Queen, Guardians finally join the fight against Savathûn and explore the mysterious new Destiny 2 destination, The Throneworld. There they meet countless challenges, including the onslaught of the Radiant Spawn - Hive enemies who now wield the same Light-given powers the Guardians have harnessed for centuries. In Season of the Risen, Guardians harness light-suppressing technology gained through a strained alliance with the Cabal Empress Caiatl to face the Witch-Queen's growing army of Light-infested hosts.

Shortly after the release of The Witch-Queen expansion for Destiny 2, Bungie introduces the latest Raid - a challenging, pinnacle Destiny activity for six seasoned Wardens who must not only possess martial skills, but also work collaboratively and overcome seemingly impossible challenges.

The Apprentice's Oath raid will be available to The Witch Queen owners on March 5th at 19pm PDT. With the launch of the raid, a global competition will also begin to crown the first fireteam in the world to complete the raid. The successful fireteam will receive a unique World First title belt for each fireteam member and, of course, the glory that comes with the World First title. The winning team will be officially announced in the days following the raid.

New Raid - The Apprentice's Oath: In the swamps of Savathûn's throne world lies a sunken pyramid. Guardians must gather their fireteam and face an ancient threat.
