Gambit is a chance at salvation. Take it.

Season of the Drifter (also known as Joker's Wild) is the sixth season of Destiny 2 and the second seasonal content of the Forsaken Annual Pass, which began March 5th, 2019 and ended on June 4th, 2019.

This season focuses on the Drifter as he unveils a new mode of Gambit much to controversy within the Vanguard and doing so splits the allegiance of Guardians between him and them; all while the mysterious Emissary of the Nine reveal visions to the Guardians of the Drifter's past and of enemies yet to come.


"For the next season of Destiny, the Drifter takes center stage with new rewards for every Guardian to add to their collections. For owners of the Annual Pass, he has new tricks up his sleeve for players of every fighting style and combat specialty."
