As is the case so many times with Destiny 2 DLC, it’s confusing to know what you actually get for your money and the experiences in-game is never clear if it was DLC triggered or just another update, add in any kind of break from the game and this all multiples. I’m this pack we get a clearer than usual picture in that you get chucked straight into a gauntlet of fights culminating with a boss fight along with a description of the new game mode. As this is going on it’s worth noting you are not solo and indeed have a full group of randoms in with you, not a fireteam but a group. I do like the new game type whereby you spin the wheel and trigger random waves of enemies as it does encourage a lot of replayability and randomness to it all. Again I took a break before this DLC dropped so I’m going by what I experienced, I got to go back to the Cosmodrome, I meet a new character and I can go on a unique questline to unlock the legendary Gjallarhorn, the rocket launcher that got used and abused for years has finally returned. I didn’t appreciate just how much work it would take, I knew it wouldn’t be quick and easy but it is a real drag and one that nearly broke me several times. From what I worked out you get to acquire the Gjallarhorn eventually, a new game variant and an almost standalone dungeon run that is a fair few hours long along with a few cosmetics. It’s the sort of DLC pack where only the hardcore or nostalgic would want it, the offerings are not plentiful and after a few days, you will have it all done. I had equal parts enjoyment and boredom but I remember that being my impression of Destiny overall so it’s more of the same but with the now pay for it Gjallarhorn.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
