We’re slightly below ten days away from the launch of Future 2 Season 17, and as of now it does not actually have a title, not to mention clues as to the place the story is headed from right here. right here, other than extra normal clues in regards to the 12 months 5 buried in The Witch Queen.
We received particulars on the Iron Banner revamp and we all know a brand new 3.0 merchandise is coming, however even by means of that and a few weapon reveals, we all know completely nothing in regards to the theme of the season, and even the race he’s specializing in. Till now, possibly?
In an effort to maintain every thing as absurdly near the vest as attainable for so long as attainable, Bungie really went in and erased the three Guardians above from the artwork of the brand new PvP map, Disjunction, which was featured within the TWAB this week.
Right here is the unique artwork:
And right here is the alternative:
Extra Guardians. What are they hiding? Even blowing that up, it is fairly laborious to inform, apart from the truth that they’re carrying new armor units and wielding new weapons.
The largest clue is the Hunter cape, which many imagine seems to have Fallen symbols on the again. Trying on the previous Fallen symbols, I’d say sure, that is in all probability the closest to that “type” of image, though I could not discover a precise match to the home. However between the symbols and the frayed edges, sure, I am additionally no less than just a few Fallen vibes. It does not actually appear like Cabal (we now have hints of Calus returning) or Rasputin (we now have hints of Rasputin returning).
That may make sense contemplating we’ve not had a Fallen-centric season since Past Mild’s precise enlargement. Chosen was Cabal, Splicer was Vex (the place Fallen was the nice guys and we received Fallen armor), Misplaced was Scorn and Taken, Witch Queen was Hive and Scorn.
On condition that among the Fallen are actually our allies, it raises questions on which Fallen faction we is likely to be combating, and it goes again to some clues we received that Eramis, the frozen chief of Home Salvation that we left loosen up on a dock someplace on Europa. There have been hints that we’ve not seen the final of her, in order that might be the place we’re headed this season.
However there’s a second principle. Apart from the cape, the one factor I can glean from this picture is what seems to be a brand new Claymore-style sword on the again of the Titan. I am guessing it is not the identical because the thirtieth anniversary one, since pictures like these normally present new gear. I am much less certain in regards to the weapon at the back of the warlock, some form of main, computerized, impulse, recon, one thing like that. And it is the gold that is extra… Cabal, however we’ll see. I see different hints of Cabal-style design in these different units, so who is aware of, possibly we’re on the way in which to the Calus-based season in any case. There have actually been extra hints of Calus’ return this season and over the previous 12 months.
I get right here, however that is all we now have. I anticipate to see one thing concrete across the reset on Tuesday.
