Bungie Releases Statement on Destiny 2 Layoffs; No This Week in Destiny 45365

Destiny 2: Into the Light Finally Adds a Hoard Mode

Bungie confirmed the highly requested hoard mode will finally appear in Destiny 2: Into the Light update.

The mode, appropriately called Onslaught, allows teams of up to three Guardians band together to hold off up to 50 waves of enemies. Beyond that, there will be multiple difficulties, with matchmaking being present for the initial 10 wave version.

Since this is the first part of three live streams, the next one will detail weapons, and likely also touch on some of the other rewards. Players expect one of the big reveals will be the return of Recluse due to the API saying ornaments from the gun will be sold via Eververse.

Finally, for those looking for a more detailed explanation of what to expect can find the notes from Rise of Bacon and Destiny reddit community below, and the stream itself above.
