The Final Shape is the eighth expansion of Destiny 2 and twelfth expansion of the Destiny franchise. The Final Shape is described as the final content pack for The Light and Darkness Saga where all events up until then will come to a head.


"The Final Shape looms—a nightmarish calcification of reality into the Witness's twisted design. Embark on a perilous journey into the heart of the Traveler, rally the Vanguard, and end the War of Light and Darkness." - DLC page description.
