Destiny 2 will be getting an expansion titled Warmind on May 8, 2018, according to a post on the official website from the game’s developers.

The folks at Bungie posted some new information about what’s in store for Destiny 2. The biggest item at the top of the list is the next expansion. Titled Warmind, it will be made available on May 8, 2018. That’s just one of many elements that will be making their way into the game in the coming weeks and months.

A number of changes for the overall game will be making their way into the same patch that deploys Warmind. Players will be able to enjoy an overall increase in vault space. Seasonal Crucible rankings will be introduced for the game’s PVP experience, and people who prefer to play with their friends can avail themselves of the new option to have Private Matches. We’ll also see the addition of Heroic Strike Modifiers, Exotic Weapon Masterworks, and Nightfall Challenge Cards. Take a look at the latest development roadmap to get the full picture:

The Destiny 2 Development Roadmap (as of April 2018) shows off some of what’s coming with Warmind.

The beginning of Season 3 (which will coincide with the launch of the new expansion) will have a change in how Bungie delivers Crucible content to players. All of the new Crucible maps that are being developed for the new expansion will be released to matchmaking as well as those developed for the previous expansion Curse of Osiris. (Players seeking to play these new maps in private matches, however, must have purchased the required expansion(s).) This is intended to increase the size of the overall player pool in PVP.

More will be revealed about Warmind in a stream on twitch.tv/bungie on April 24, 2018 – be sure to follow them so you can catch it live! The Warmind expansion for Destiny 2 will be available for purchase on May 8, 2018.
