The high-level Warmind synopsis is that the AI Warmind Rasputin has awoken from his slumber in the polar ice caps of Mars. Ana Bray, a Guardian long thought lost, searches for a connection to her past...one that could be lost forever on the polar ice caps of Mars. Downtime will last approximately five hours between 6-11am PT, though you will be able to preload Destiny 2 Warmind during this time, once update 1.2.0 has been applied. The PC version of the expansion is available exclusively on Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment's acclaimed online-gaming platform. This is the second official expansion for Destiny 2 and seems to offer quite a bit for players.
Warmind includes new gear, deeper endgame content, activities, an all-new story, and features an epic new boss battle that challenges players in new ways.
Bungie has been establishing a much more intimate relationship with fans when it comes to information regarding Destiny 2's future, so Johnson playing coy most likely means that he isn't being hyperbolic regarding the new gameplay mode.
Warmind goes live on May 8 at 11am Pacific.
For the uninitiated, the Escalation Protocol is a new horde mode-style activity, where you can take part during the endgame stages of Warmind.
However, perhaps most exciting of all is the new Raid Lair, titled Spire of Stars. For every wave of Hive the players survive, additional waves will increase in difficulty.
Players can pick Destiny 2: Warmind for $19.99. Also, Destiny 2's expansion pass is included with it in the $89.99 bundle, and in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game that costs $99.99. As a timed-exclusive, PlayStation 4 players can acquire loot from a Strike called The Insight Terminus.
