Destiny 2 Lightfall Content Vault reveals everything leaving in year 6

As Destiny 2 Lightfall arrives, Bungie announces the Destiny Content Vault for the expansion, as Destiny 2 year 6 and season 20 begin in the space FPS game.

With the Destiny Lightfall expansion just weeks away now, Bungie has announced the Destiny 2 year 6 Content Vault, revealing everything leaving in season 20 of its space FPS game. In an attempt to keep activities busy and prevent overloading players with too many active destinations at once, Bungie cycles certain older destinations and content out of Destiny 2 each year, though emphasises that these can always return in future updates.

The destinations leaving when Lightfall and Destiny 2 season 20 release are the H.E.L.M. wings for the Crown of Sorrow and Rasputin Exo Frame, the Psisorium, the Warmind Launch Facility, the Derelict Leviathan, and the Eliksni Quarter of the Last City. Of these, I’m most sad to see the Eliksni Quarter will no longer be accessible – fixing it up to make a home for the Fallen House of Light was a special moment, so I’m sad it’s out of mind for now. Hopefully we’ll get to see it again one day, all built-up and bustling.

The four seasonal campaigns from Destiny 2 year 5 are going away – that’s the Seasons of the Risen, the Haunted, Plunder, and the Seraph, for those of you keeping count. We’re also losing a range of activities including Nightmare Containment, Ketchcrash, and a number of expeditions and hideouts. Once the update lands on February 28, these campaigns and activities will be removed from your inventory and unavailable to access in-game, so make sure you’ve cleared up anything left over before then.

Also going away are several Exotic quests, although Bungie notes that in certain circumstances their associated Destiny 2 Exotics may continue to be earnable in-game via other means. Associated items, quests, and currencies will all be removed from player inventories as well – however, destination materials will simply become unusable and must instead be manually discarded from players’ inventories.
