Season of the Chosen was the thirteenth season of Destiny 2 and the second seasonal content of Beyond Light, which lasted from February 9th, 2021 to May 11th, 2021. It features the Cabal under Empress Caiatl proposing an alliance with Humanity to purge the Hive from the system, only for tensions to skyrocket and Guardians must engage Caiatl's champions in ritualistic combat.
Story: The New Empress
- "With the Pyramids and Xivu Arath destabilizing the system, Empress Caiatl, leader of the Cabal and daughter of Calus, seeks an alliance. But when she demands Zavala's obedience, negotiations collapse, and Guardians must become the tip of the spear that strikes at her growing war council."
Welcome to the H.E.L.M.
- "Designed as the ultimate Vanguard staging ground, the spaceport provides the resources Guardians need to face the most powerful of incursions. Here, the War Table has been set. Meet with Zavala, acquire the Hammer of Proving, and orchestrate an honorable victory."
- "The fallout from the failed treaty has resulted in Cabal forces taking up arms on multiple destinations – prepared to defend the glory of the Empire. In this three-player matchmade activity, Guardians will engage in ritual combat against Caiatl's chosen warriors."
- "Devils Lair
Find and destroy the single, exalted Servitor that sustains the Fallen House of Devils in the Cosmodrome."
- "Fallen S.A.B.E.R.
Rush to the aid of the AI Warmind Rasputin as he broadcasts a plea for help across the system."
- "Proving Grounds
The champions of humanity face the champions of the Cabal to determine the fate of the Last City."
Exotics & Gears: A Champion's Armory
- "Exotic Quest: Dead Man's Tale
A strange transmission from deep space tempts you to pursue a dangerous bounty and reclaim the lost repeater. Will you accept?"
- "Exotic Bow: Ticuu's Divination
This ancient recurve Bow charges multiple Solar arrows that can track several targets at once."
- "Power Gathered: Weapons & Ornaments
A cache of new and reissued weapons to collect. Exotic, Legendary, ritual – over 25 weapons added to the loot pool."
- "Power Unlocked: Umbral Engrams
Earn rewards by playing your way. Unlock the power of the new Prismatic Recaster and Focus Umbral Engrams into the rewards you desire."
- "Seasonal Artifact: Bell of Conquests
Used to celebrate the triumphs of the warrior who carries it, the Bell of Conquests increases your Power every time it's upgraded. Unlock new Seasonal mods and customize your playstyle."
Rewards: Unlock the Season Pass
- "Gear, XP, rewards! Get the Season Pass and instantly unlock the new Seasonal armor set and the new Solar Bow, Ticuu's Divination. You also get an XP boost that speeds up your Seasonal ranks and engram unlocks."
This new season brings with it a new three-player matchmaking activity: Battlegrounds, in which the Guardians will challenge Caiatl's champions in ritual combat. This activity will be overseen from the H.E.L.M., a Vanguard staging ground in The Last City which will include a war table and an updated Umbral Decoder. The Guardian Games will also return this season as each class fights for the honor of proving themselves the best.
