Destiny 2's Season 19 finally has a name. Season of the Seraph will have Guardians fight the Hive God of War Xivu Arath for control of Rasputin's network of weaponized satellites while Ana Bray seeks to restore The Warmind to a new Exo body.
In the trailer, we see Ana Bray in a Braytech facility next to an offline Exo body. It doesn't look like that body is entirely finished, however, as its limbs appear to be hooked up to the WarSat network. Guardians will have to infiltrate Braytech to bypass defenses and neutralize Hive Wrathborn to prevent them from gaining access to the network before Rasputin comes back online to take control.
On the new season's site, we also get teased a new Exotic mission for the Revision Zero, a Pulse Rifle that seems to have an alternate firing mode that turns it into a Sniper Rifle. By heading into a Braytech orbital platform above the last city, Guardians can obtain the new Exotic, and possibly also obtain its "multiple catalysts" which each adds to the Revision Zero's power–perhaps unlocking other firing modes than the two shown in the trailer.
Rasputin is a central figure in Destiny 2's lore. An ancient artificial intelligence that headed the defense of all humanity during the Golden Age, Rasputin was one of the few survivors during The Collapse. Since then, Guardians have partnered with Rasputin to forestall the advance of The Hive, eventually leading to Rasputin being taken offline when The Darkness returned some seasons ago. Guardians received a strong hint of Rasputin's return back in January with a collection of Exotic cosmetics. Almost a year later, Bungie has made good on its promise to give us a Rasputin-themed season once again.
Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph runs from now until Lightfall arrives on Februrary 28.
