Last week, Bungie released a stunning new cinematic for Destiny 2 to celebrate the end of the game’s current Season 19. The teaser does a great job of building anticipation for the release of the Lightfall expansion for Destiny 2 at the end of the month, and for the conclusion of Bungie’s decade-long story arc.
While I have invested many hundreds of hours into both the first and second Destiny games, I have only been able to keep up with the plot in recent years due to a lack of free time. There’s plenty in this new video to excite someone like me.
To begin with, the cinematic features a sizable percentage of the cast from Destiny 2 assembling to watch the Traveller, Destiny’s enormous space golf ball that has been parked over Earth.

In this case, the Traveller is trying to escape extinction at the hands of a more recent enemy named Eramis by leaving the Earth’s orbit. But hold on! Rasputin, the artificial intelligence you’ve come to know and trust over the years when it was initially revealed as a Russian music-loving computer terminal hidden beneath the Cosomodrome, can protect you from this danger.
New worlds. New beginnings. New ends.
Let the Destiny 2 Dev Team give you a guided tour of what awaits in Lightfall.

Unfortunately, the only way to stop Rasputin’s satellites from attacking the Traveler is for him to kill himself. This puts a stop to the Traveller and thwarts Eramis’ plot.
That’s wonderful news since without the Traveller, you and everyone else on Earth would be powerless. The Witness, the ultimate Big Evil of the Destiny series, says that the Traveller has nowhere to go now that the Darkness is closing in.
The Traveller and the Pyramid Ships, the Light and the Dark have been at the center of Destiny’s epic plot, and now their ultimate clash is finally within sight. The elimination of Rasputin is a major plot point for both this film and the tale as a whole, although it is understandable given the series’ recent concentration on him and serves to up the stakes for the remaining characters.
Even if you don’t like the tale Destiny has told over the years (and I was a fan from the Peter Dinklage and Paul McCartney days), the fact that a video game franchise has been able to convey a story over a decade is impressive. Admittedly, the narrative path leading up to the saga’s impending conclusion has changed over time, what with the return of the Exo Stranger and the Crow’s evolving position, but that’s just how stories work.
Nevertheless, it’s great to see how little details like the Traveller’s final shot fit into the grand scheme Bungie’s been working on the whole time.

Next year, in Destiny 2’s ninth addition, The Last Shape, the story will come to a close after a cyberpunky trip to Neptune in the upcoming Lightfall.
I still haven’t found the time to get back into it, but I can’t wait to see how it ends. I’m curious about the future of Zavala, Ikora, Osiris, Variks, Eris, and the rest of the gang. The Pyramid Ships need to arrive on Earth already! And I’m interested in seeing how Bungie wraps off the tale while leaving enough room for the series to continue in the future.
