Destiny 2: Beyond Light will introduce Stasis and new class abilities

Destiny 2's next expansion, Beyond Light, will introduce new class abilities and a new damage type called Stasis.


Loads of news dropped for Destiny 2 during today's Bungie reveal stream. On top of learning that Destiny 2's next expansion, called Beyond Light, would drop this September 22, we also learned that the DLC will include a new set of class abilities and a new damage type called Stasis.

In Beyond Light, Guardians will head to Europa to take on Eramis, the Shipstealer. Eramis is a Fallen Baroness from the House of Devils. It seems she’s terribly upset with the traveler for scattering all the great houses of the Fallen to the far corners of the universe and she’s planning revenge. As you’ve come to expect, it’s your job to stop her.

Fortunately, new tools will be at the disposal of Guardians when they set out to stop Eramis, including the ability to wield the Darkness with a new damage type called Stasis that will work alongside Void, Arc, and Solar damage that players use now. Stasis is the first new damage type introduced into the game since the launch of Destiny 1. Not to state the obvious, but this is a big deal and will have major gameplay implications.

To hear Bungie talk about Stasis, Eramis, and how it all ties into Beyond Light, watch the replay of the stream we’ve embedded above. You can also use our Destiny 2 strategy guide to learn more about the game as it stands today.
