"It's just a game... or so I thought."

Paradox is the seventh expansion of Destiny 2, the eleventh expansion of the Destiny franchise, and the first expansion of the Redux Trilogy. It is supposed to be the actual name for Lightfall.



Following the fight against the Witch Queen Savathûn and her army of Hive that plagued our world, as the heroes of the last safe city turn their eyes towards the frontiers beyond the protection of the Traveler, humanity has fallen under attack once more, but this time, the Darkness has a new name: Kazuto Kirigaya, the Black Swordsman who has recruited a dark army of Shadowkeepers to launch a world-ending massacre that turned Mal evil, killed countless Auradonians and heroes, including Commander Zavala, and turned Auradon into a living nightmare. Enter mysterious worlds. Journey deep into what lies beyond Auradon. Work with the Vanguard, Eris Morn, Lucy Heartfilia, and the resurrected Cayde-6 to avenge Zavala's death and prevent the Shadowkeepers from cementing Mal's darkness before they cast humanity into an age of darkness for good. Become a slayer of our worst nightmares.


This expansion is about the Young Wolf returning to a world now changed by the aftermath of Zavala's death to hunt down Kirito and Asuna at the request of the Vanguard. Now corrupted by the Darkness, Kirito and Asuna have recruited dark versions of their friends and old and new faces of enemies from the player's past, including Zevon, Son of Yzma; Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash; Malcolm Merlyn, the Dark Archer; Sasuke Uchiha; Fikrul, the Fanatic; Uldren Sov; and possibly more. The Vanguard tasks you to stop them from ushering in a new era of darkness and put whatever evil is out there out of their misery. The Guardians venture deep beyond the Last City and face the new threat, not knowing, what they might set loose...
