Beyond Light delivers one of the best raids in Destiny history and some of the best story moments in Destiny 2, and that’s more than enough to make up for a few disappointing gaps.
It wasn’t until November 24, a full two weeks after Destiny 2: Beyond Light was released, that I got the rush of excitement I was waiting for. That’s when I finally logged in on reset day, looked at the array of new activities and challenges peppered over the solar system and thought, “Now that’s more like it.”
What started as one of the slimmest expansions ever has developed into a memorable adventure with some of the best activities and story moments in Destiny 2’s history. With the full scope of Beyond Light now in view, I can safely say that I’ll be playing this expansion quite heavily for weeks and months to come, and with renewed but cautious confidence in Bungie’s ability to deliver content at a rate that’s both sustainable and tantalizing, which will be especially important as the studio embarks on a three-expansion trilogy.
