, available now for download on PlayStation®4, the Xbox
One family of devices including Xbox One X, and PC. The PC version will
be available exclusively on®, Blizzard Entertainment's
acclaimed online-gaming platform.

The genre-defining Destiny franchise has received global acclaim
since its release in 2014. The latest offering, Destiny 2: Forsaken,
brings with it the most transformative moment in Destiny history,
changing the way players fight, and deepening and broadening character
progression by giving the player more freedom of choice. Forsaken will
reinforce the hobby players have come to celebrate over the years.
Players will travel to the lawless edge of the solar system and dive
deep into a new frontier filled with enemies, allies, and untold
mysteries, to avenge the death of beloved character Cayde-6. Featuring
an all-new cooperative and competitive activity called Gambit and an
evolving endgame destination called The Dreaming City, Forsaken
tells a dark and revengeful story in the Destiny universe.

Gambit is a first-of-its-kind hybrid game mode, combining the best of
PvE and PvP. Two teams of four face off against each other in separate
but identical arenas. Teams fight enemy combatants, collect the motes
they drop, bank them to send powerful blockers to slow down the opposing
team, and then invade the enemy side for intense PvP showdowns where
disruption is the goal.

"We've evolved the Destiny 2 experience to appeal to our
incredible community with a deeply personal storyline, loads of content
crafted for players who love Destiny, and a massive, new
destination built to specifically house an endgame experience like never
before," said Jonty Barnes, General Manager for Destiny at Bungie. He
added, "We have plenty of surprises in store in the weeks and months
ahead, and we have been working all year with our community to make sure Forsaken
will meet their expectations."

"Destiny has a remarkably diverse community of players," said
Byron Beede, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Destiny at
Activision. He added, "Destiny 2: Forsaken, offers both veteran
and brand-new players a huge variety of gameplay experiences. With the
Complete Collection and the Level 30 Character Boost, it's a great time
to continue your adventures, bring your friends into the game, or jump
into the universe for the very first time."
