Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen release date was revealed on Tuesday, giving fans something to look forward to during February.

Season of the Chosen's first activities and the season pass will come out next Tuesday, Feb. 9. The newest season will revolve around an apparent power struggle with the Cabal, and their new leader Caiatl, the daughter of former Cabal emperor Calus. It will also introduce the Battlegrounds, a new matchmade 3-man PVE activity. The first two of these Battlegrounds, Behemoth and Hailstone will arrive Feb. 9. The third Battleground, Cleansing, will be released Feb.16, and the fourth and probable final Battleground, Oracle, will arrive Feb. 23. The new strike, The Proving Grounds, will come out March 23 for players with the season pass, before being released to all players a week later.

Although that’s all the Season of the Chosen content that shows up on the roadmap, it’s worth noting there will be an exotic quest, with the gun and release date being redacted as of now. Still, the gun is anticipated to be from the Tex Mechanica faction, the same faction that created the popular Hand Cannon, The Last Word. Aside from the exotic quest, there will also be content for new players. A new area for players known as the H.E.L.M. will open up for all, two Destiny 1 strikes, the Fallen S.A.B.E.R. and Devil’s Lair will be making their return, and the Guardian Games, a seasonal event open to all known, will be going on from April 20 to May 9. 

The Season Pass will, as per usual, cost $10. However, unlike previous seasons, the content is expected to last until the next fall expansion instead of being sunset at the end of its three-month run. Enjoy the new season next week!
