Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals


The Darkness is closer than you think...

The Pyramid ships have arrived and an untapped power has summoned the enemies of humanity. Help unravel the true nature of the Darkness.



In Season of Arrivals , fragments of the vanquished Almighty burn in the sky, but celebration is cut short as mysterious Pyramid ships reveal themselves throughout the system. A dark omen unveils itself and an obscured message howls through the emptiness of space. In the shadow of the Pyramid ship, you must search for answers.


Contact Public Event, Umbral Engrams, and the Prismatic Recaster

To help the Drifter investigate the true nature of the Darkness, players will need to defeat enemies and bank Motes of Darkness in the new Contact Public Event . After earning Umbral Engrams from various in-game sources, players can use the Prismatic Recaster to influence the contents of the engram, then use the Umbral Decoder to decrypt the engram.

Repeatable Bounties

 Players will need to own the Season Pass to purchase Prismatic Recaster upgrades and bounties.

 Umbral Engrams do not give any rewards if dismantled.
When Season of Arrivals ends, these pursuits and activities will be removed and replaced with new rewards and themes in the next Season.


Prophecy Dungeon

The Prophecy Dungeon is a new three-player activity that is available to all players - the Season of Arrivals Season Pass is not required to access this dungeon. Unique rewards, such as the Daito Foundry Armor Set , are exclusive to this dungeon and can be earned through weekly completions.

Max Power Level

Starting in the Season of Arrivals , players will be able to see the Max Power Level for all Legendary weapons and armor. This change won't affect any gear in Season of Arrivals , as Legendary weapons and armor will not be at their Max Power Level at the start of the Season. However, some Legendary gear will reach their Power Level cap starting in Season 12. Exotic weapons and armor do not have a Max Power Level. For a list of items that will reach Max Power in Season 12, or for more information, please visit our Max Power Level Article linked below. 

Season Pass

The Season of Arrivals Season Pass includes access to the Season's story, seasonal activity, new gear, and Premium Track rewards for Seasonal Ranks which gives players access to rewards earlier than the Free Track.
