SEASON 13 // SEASON OF THE CHOSEN

Live from Feb 09 – May 11, 2021

Details: Official Website | Season of the Chosen Support | Season Calendar

In Season of the Chosen, as the Pyramids and Xivu Arath continue to destabilize the system, a new force emerges. Empress Caiatl, leader of the Cabal and daughter of Deposed Emperor Calus, seeks an alliance with humanity. But when she demands more than Zavala can offer, negotiations collapse, and Guardians must become the tip of the spear that strikes at her growing war council.

A Summary of What’s Coming:

  • The H.E.L.M.
  • Battlegrounds: 3 player matchmade activity
  • New Strike: Proving Grounds (plus, Devil’s Lair + Fallen S.A.B.E.R from Destiny are returning).
  • New Armor & Exotic Bow: Ticcu’s Divination unlocked instantly with the Season Pass!
  • Trials weapons and armor.
  • and more!

Battlegrounds // New Activity:

To prove their strength in the eyes of the Cabal empress players will need to challenge Caiatl’s warriors in the new Battlegrounds activities across the system. Use the Hammer of Proving to forge and socket Challenger Medallions out of pillaged Cabal Gold for the right to take on Caiatl’s fiercest commanders in ritual combat. Visit the War Table at the H.E.L.M. to upgrade your Hammer of Proving through three tiers of pursuits that will unlock Hammer upgrades, new Proving Runes, gear drops, and more. This is a 3 player activity with matchmaking and will require the Season Pass for Season of the Chosen.

The H.E.L.M.:

The Hub for Emergency Logistics and Maneuvers, or H.E.L.M., is the new base for all current Vanguard operations within the system. From the H.E.L.M. players can interact with the War Table Seasonal vendor, access the Prismatic Recaster, decode Umbral Engrams at the Umbral Decoder, manage their vault, and retrieve items from the Postmaster.
