In its now typical last-minute marketing fashion, Bungie has revealed that Destiny 2 Season 18 will be titled Season of Plunder, and the new season is kicking off right now. After the sinister theme of battling one’s inner demons with Season of the Haunted, Season of Plunder looks to switch things up a bit with a riotous treasure hunt across the solar system with a pirate-y theme.
Season of Plunder also puts the focus back on Eramis, who has been thawed out to cause chaos once again. She has turned to a legion of space pirates to help her find “lost relics of great power”. Your job is to beat her to it.
There are three new pirate-themed activities to partake in – Expeditions, Pirate Hideouts, and Ketchcrash – the latter of which is a Sea of Thieves-style ship battles.
There are also some tasty new Exotic weapons on the way, including a delightful-looking new Fusion Rifle called Delicate Tomb.
You can get a full breakdown of Season 18 in the trailer below.
So with Destiny 2 Season of Plunder underway, it’s time to hone your Guardian for the fight ahead. Take a look at our Destiny 2 best weapons list and our guides on the best builds for Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks.
