Destiny 2's Prophecy Dungeon Coming Back With Next Update
After disappearing with Destiny 2's other vaulted content, the game's latest dungeon will soon be available again.
The Prophecy dungeon launched in Destiny 2 back in June, adding another inventive, high-level activity to the game that wasn't one of its six-player raids. But when the Beyond Light expansion was released, a whole slate of Destiny 2 content was removed from the game, with no information as to when (or if) it might return. Prophecy wasn't quite in the same boat as destinations like Mars, Mercury, Titan, Io, and the Leviathan--Bungie always said it would come back after Beyond Light's release--but we didn't know exactly when, until now.
Bungie included an update on Prophecy's return in its latest This Week at Bungie blog post. We now know that Prophecy will be back in the game very soon: December 8. That's the date of the game's next weekly reset, which will see a new patch, Update 3.0.1, that fixes some issues and adds a few extra elements along with Prophecy.
Those extra goodies are the next-generation upgrades that Destiny 2 will receive for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players. Right now, the game is available on both platforms, but only as the backwards compatible version for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The update coming to Destiny 2 on December 8 upgrades the game for next-gen players, amping up framerates to 60 fps, offering 4k resolutions, and speeding up load times.
Bungie hasn't released the full patch notes for Update 3.0.1, but you can check out a preview of the notes below.
While it won't come with Update 3.0.1, Bungie also announced that the Trials of Osiris is coming back to Destiny 2 after nearly a month of being disabled in the game. The high-ranking multiplayer tournament is set to return on December 18 after another future hotfix deals with issues that caused Bungie to disable it in the first place.
