Also, Bungie aren’t selling the seasons angle too well atm. Let’s hope they’ll reorganise their notes before the stream comes back up. Edit: seems they did. (edited)

The event is called the Dawning, it’s back from D1. Brings new gear and weapons.

[12:50]
And shaders.

[12:52]
Ooh, they are calling events like Iron Banner ‘rituals’ and they’ll still be weekly.

[12:52]
Iron Banner in season 2 will have direct purchase of guns, via shards and tokens. Thank goodness.

[12:54]
Ornaments, perks and other things unlocked via gameplay. Not just random.

[12:54]
1 more season 1 iron banner

[12:57]
Similar types of things for Trials.

[12:59]
Season 2 IB and Trials weapons will fill in weapon types that S1 didn’t have, ie an energy hand cannon

2nd faction Rally will have new weapons for season 1.

[1:02]
Base set through random packages.

[1:03]

Unsure how they are awarded, but they look sweet.

[1:12]
Season 2 is themed after the Dawning

[1:17]
Season 2 Ghosts…. Look amazeballs.

[1:17]
Ps: not seeing ANYTHING about new gameplay content atm

[1:17]
Winamp skin for Ghost

[1:18]
It feels like Destiny 2 is becoming PS Home.

[1:18]
However, if they add gameplay / new content, these rewards get even more awesome.

[1:19]
Shaders now

[1:19]
They won’t be limited per season

[1:20]
Bulk deleting of shaders are on the radar

[1:21]

[1:24]
Heavy hints to a redone map from D1

Clans will be reset in each season

[1:26]

Season 2 will have a new enemy as its focus

[1:30]
I hope the new focus will mean new stuff and things

[1:31]
3 big streams in November, talking about how we can evolve etc. I hope that means first dlc news.

I am a father, a husband and a spartan. I started out gaming as a blue hedgehog, then I traded in my racing shoes for a gender-neutral space suit. From there it was a blur, I lived through fantasies that were not so final, landed on universe ending rings, and more recently I have defended Azeroth from Orcs. Lots. Of. Orcs. Oh, also, whose foot prints are these?
