With three weeks to go till Future 2: Past Mild, Bungie lastly launched a trailer detailing the expansion’s story.
The trailer focuses on the Fallen, particularly on Eramis, the large dangerous of Past Mild. Eramis is an old-school Fallen Captain that gamers haven’t seen earlier than, and she or he’s sick of the Fallen’s lack of self-discipline. As a substitute of following after the “Nice Machine” (what we all know because the Traveler), Eramis has offered her faction to the Darkness. And like Guardians will do in Past Mild, she and her lieutenants have obtained the facility of Stasis.
Within the lore, the Fallen (or the Eliksni, as they name themselves) are following the Traveler as a result of it deserted them throughout their very own Golden Age — one thing it supposedly tried to do to us before Rasputin intervened. However with Eramis, the Fallen are beholden to a special energy — one which Guardians at present know little or no about.
We see Eramis utilizing an artifact from the Darkness to empower her Fallen allies with Stasis powers.
Nervous for his personal individuals, plainly Variks “the loyal” then sends a misery sign, trying to convey the Guardians to Europa and kickstarting the entire journey. Variks was an NPC overlooking the Prison of Elders exercise within the unique Future. Gamers haven’t seen him because the Future 1 days, however he was accountable for letting Uldren out of prison back in Forsaken — not directly linking him to the dying of Cayde-6. It’s at present unclear if Variks will play buddy or foe in Past Mild.
Except for the Fallen, the trailer reveals off a quick dialog between the player Guardian and their Ghost — notable, because the participant character not often speaks. We additionally get a quick take a look at the Exo Stranger spying on Variks as he makes his misery name. We’re nonetheless not totally positive what she’s been as much as because the finish of the very first set of missions within the unique Future, however an update to the Beyond Light store page says she’s been hanging out on Europa.
The trailer additionally consists of among the Past Mild soundtrack, which guidelines and has some main Tron vibes.
