Destiny 2 content vaulting might discontinue several trophies next February

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
With the announcement that Bungie is vaulting content from Destiny 2's Forsaken expansion and Tangled Shore, it seems that several trophies may need to be changed before the release of the new expansion next year or they will be discontinued.

Destiny 2 Forsaken

Destiny 2's The Witch Queen expansion launches on February 22nd, at which point both the Forsaken campaign and the Tangled Shore location will disappear into the Destiny Content Vault. Other seasonal content — including the Presage and Harbinger Exotic missions — will also be heading to the vault. That being said, Bungie is retaining the Dreaming City destination, Last Wish raid, Shattered Throne dungeon, the Warden of Nothing and Proving Grounds strikes, and the Battlegrounds mode. When The Witch Queen expansion launches, Battlegrounds is being combined with strikes into an all-new Vanguard Operations playlist that will be accessible to all Guardians. Master Rahool will become the master of coin in the Tower, as currency exchange chief Spider disappears.

Bungie's blog post explains that vaulting the content will give it the "space to launch The Witch Queen expansion and its new Throne World destination, as well as new features like weapon crafting, the new Legendary difficulty campaign option, the new Glaive weapon archetype, plus all the additional content we have planned for the four new Seasons to come starting in February."

To make up for the vaulting of content, on December 7th the Forsaken expansion will be going free until February. On December 7th, a Forsaken pack will release, which offers players access to the Last Wish raid and the Shattered Throne Dungeon. In addition, three Forsaken Ciphers will be included, allowing the player to instantly unlock non-raid or dungeon exclusive guns from the Forsaken Exotic loot pile. Anybody who already owns the Forsaken expansion will get access to this pack.

There is the potential for a few discontinued trophies, here. Looking at the Forsaken list, Nothing Left to Say is earned for completing Forsaken's campaign, which is quite hard to do if it doesn't exist. An Exotic Journey, earned for completing a Forsaken exotic quest, has the potential to be discontinued, but it depends on how Bungie reorganises the Forsaken content on removal. Bungie has always been good at changing trophy requirements when the time came for discontinuation, so we can't imagine that the team will drop the ball on this one.

Of course, if you lot have any information on this, let us know! Remember, February 22nd, 2022, is the date that Forsaken and Tangled Shores are vaulted! What do you think? Is this a natural way to vault previously accessible content? Or would you rather it have stayed? Get in the comments!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
