Destiny Division: Last Week of the Festival of the Lost

As guardians celebrate the last week of the Festival of the Lost, the release of Beyond Light inches closer. With the release of the Story trailer last week, Bungie has released some new details as well as changes coming to weapons and armor in Beyond Light.

Variks is back in the Spotlight

After being spotted in the trailer last week, fan-favorite Variks got a highlight trailer talking about the power that Eramis has found. An Eliksni who has been alive since the Traveler abandoned the Eliksni before the events of Destiny 1. He was last seen helping Uldren Sov escape from the prison in Forsaken before disappearing and emerging on Europa watching Eramis grow in the power of Stasis.
