Destiny 2's Rasputin Finally Destroyed The Almighty

Destiny 2's current season is about to come to an end. But before that happens, some housecleaning had to occur this weekend: namely, the Cabal's ship The Almighty had to be destroyed. Over the last few weeks, the ship has been traveling at a slow speed toward both the Last City and the Traveler. The only defense? Working with Rasputin, an AI Warmind, to stave it off.

On Saturday, the Herculean task of getting Rasputin powered up, and for about an hour and a half players could see the result of their handiwork. The Almighty ended up going down slowly but surely, as the Rasputin peppered it at full power. It didn't appear that impressive at first, but it was meant to be something of a slower event rather than a massive bang like the start of the universe. After everything was said and done, players could get a new emblem to mark their attendance, though it was an odd spectacle to be sure. However, it marks the beginning of the next season, which is set to begin on Tuesday, June 9. Still, despite the new season being so close, players aren't quite sure what all it will include.

In prior seasons, we've known a lot more about what's going on in Destiny 2 far ahead of when the changeover finally happens. There's one clue: the name "Season of the [Redacted]." Obviously you want to fill that in with "witch," but things won't be that easy. Bungie apparently won't be letting any of us know what's going on, however, or quite some time. Looks like we'll have to wait until we hear more about the new season on the morning of June 9 at 9 AM PT. With that in mind, it may be time to jump back into Destiny 2, Guardian.
