In a nutshell, Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer tasks the Guardians with protecting the Last City from the advances of the Vex. The Vex are now making direct threats against the Last City and have even blocked out the sun and thrown the city into an endless night. To stop them, players will team up with Mithrax, Kell of the House of Light to try and stop them. The season will end on 24 August
According to Bungie, players will have to hack into the Vex simulation with the help of Mithrax by competing in a six-player activity called Override. Here they will discover the Vex secrets while also uncovering ways to put a stop to the Vex. As for the weekly pinnacle mission called Expunge, it will see players attempt to destroy the Vex from within.
On 22 May, Bungie will then release the Vault of Glass Raid where players can return to the activity and take on Atheon. The season is also bringing with it a new transmog system called Armor Synthesis that allows players to customize their Guardian’s new look using past armour styles.
