Destiny: Beyond Light will be included with Xbox Game Pass day one

Destiny 2's Beyond Light is still on its way. To pass the time until we can finally visit Europa, there is another Iron Banner happening next week. Prepare for Lord Saladin and Triple Valor.

Destiny 2's Season of Arrivals was announced a couple of weeks ago. The announcement also brought word that the devs will be adding a few fun things between September 22 and the new November 10 launch date of Beyond Light.

First, there was some Double Ordeal loot available on Lake of Shadows. This week, we had Triple Infamy, courtesy of Drifter.

Next week will see the return of Lord Saladin and with him comes Triple Valor, themed weapons and armour, and his Pinnacle Power bounty rewards.

Chances for scoring some amazing loot are plenty but getting your hands on it won't be a walk in the Tower. Control is the name of the game, and Power is enabled. If you haven’t risen through the Pinnacle band yet, you may find yourself facing a raid boss or two on the other team.

Iron Banner

  • Starts: 9/29/2020 10:00 a.m. PT (6:00 p.m. BST)
  • Ends: 10/6/2020 10:00 a.m. PT (6:00 p.m. BST)

There will be a few more weeks with increased rewards for Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit, so stay tuned for those announcements.

Beyond Light isn’t just bringing Europa to the fold. There will also, in the undying words of Cayde-6, be a ton of loot. Additionally, there will be a couple of Community Emblems to hunt down.

Xbox Game Pass

Earlier this week, Forsaken and Shadowkeep became available on Xbox Game Pass. With Beyond Light on the way, there’s no better time to gear up and get acquainted with what’s going on in the world of Destiny.
