Destiny 2 Reveals Their Veil of Mystery!

Destiny 2 players, hold onto your helmets because the game’s narrative team has just spilled the beans on the juicy details behind one of the most intriguing storylines in the game – The Veil! Brace yourselves for an emotional rollercoaster filled with cosmic battles, mind-bending powers, and an all-out war that’ll leave you on the edge of your seat!

In the beginning, Destiny focused on the Guardians fighting threats like the Vex and the Hive, leaving the battle between Light and Dark lurking in the shadows. We got our first taste of this epic clash when The Taken King expansion hit the scene. Suddenly, the universe was awash with Darkness, and we finally started piecing together the puzzle of these unimaginable powers. Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion took it a step further, unveiling the enigmatic Pyramid ships and introducing us to The Witness. And just like that, we found ourselves in a full-blown system-wide war known as Destiny 2: Lightfall, leading us straight to The Veil.

So, what is this mysterious Veil all about? From a lore standpoint, it’s a mind-bending object that connects people through a psychic bridge. Talk about trippy! And guess what? Characters like Dr. Maya Sundaresh and Chioma Esi have successfully used The Veil to connect minds and even create a consciousness-hosting device called CloudArk. In their latest blog post, the narrative team behind Destiny 2 spilled the beans on their inspirations for The Veil, including mind-bending movies like Altered States and the iconic 2001: A Space Odyssey. They even gave a nod to independent science-horror projects like SCP Foundation and Magnus Archives. Talk about having some seriously cool influences!

Now, buckle up, Guardians, because the Veil’s influence reaches new heights in the season’s final cutscene. Prepare for a jaw-dropping revelation as The Witness emerges, embodying an entire species influenced by the power of The Veil. But hold onto your Ghosts, because the cutscene isn’t for the faint of heart. We’re talking gruesome depictions of mutilated bodies and ritualistic mass death, painting a picture of an incomprehensibly powerful being that defies the laws of physics. It’s like something out of the nightmare-inducing tales of Nyarlathotep or the chilling SCP entries. Even hardened characters like Osiris find themselves feeling uneasy in the presence of The Veil’s connection to The Witness. Can you blame them?

But fear not, fellow Guardians! The narrative team’s got big plans to expand on The Veil’s mysteries in Seasons 22 and 23, culminating in the highly anticipated Destiny 2: The Final Shape expansion. As Season of the Deep nears its climactic finale, mark your calendars for August 22 because Destiny 2 is about to drop some mind-blowing teasers that’ll have you counting down the days!

So, whether you’re gaming on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X/S, Destiny 2 is ready to transport you into a world of intergalactic awesomeness. Get ready to unravel the secrets of The Veil and take your Guardianship to a whole new level!
