Now Playing: Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Video Review

However, the two dungeons releasing this year in Season 17 and Season 19 aren't free for players. Anyone who has the Deluxe Edition of The Witch Queen expansion can play the dungeons as they launch, while others can purchase The Witch Queen Dungeon Key for 2000 Silver in the Eververse store to access the activity.

In an earlier TWAB, Bungie said it will incentivize older dungeons by rotating them weekly in Season 17 and rewarding players with Pinnacle gear. The latest dungeon in Destiny 2, called the Grasp of Avarice, was released during the Bungie 30th Anniversary event.

Season 17 will begin on May 24.
