Always performing, however by no means fairly seen. It appears one in every of Destiny 2‘s most elusive antagonists is preparing to finally play its hand. Lurking in the shadows of Bungie’s space-knight loot shooter, The Darkness have lastly put voice to their long-awaited return by broadcasting an ominous hum on the Destiny 2 Twitter account. Whether as one other season or because the game’s subsequent growth, it might quickly be time to work out what, precisely, The Traveller’s been operating away from all this time.
I’ll let you know what, although, Destiny’s enigmatic geometry doesn’t maintain a candle towards that other The Darkness. Lyrically talking, at the least.

The Darkness invasion was teased all the way in which again on the finish of The Red War, Destiny 2’s launch marketing campaign. After bopping Cabal chief Gaul, the digicam pulls proper out to point out an enormous host of shadowy pyramids encroaching from the sting of area. Five years handed with out sight or sound of The Darkness, till one in every of their menacing marble Toblerone items appeared buried underneath the lunar mud of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
Naturally, the theorists are out in full pressure to work out what this week’s fuzzy audio would possibly imply. There’s a megathread over on Reddit if you wish to observe alongside – to date, of us have tried tweaking the audio, evaluating it to radio alerts from our real-life Saturn, or else arranging the picture bars by peak and referring the 91 bars to biblical texts.
Wild hypothesis, for certain, however enjoyable wild hypothesis.
Bringing The Darkness into play does, nonetheless, lend extra credence of the rumours that Titan’s golden-age arcologies are about to beef it – supposedly as a present of pressure from our angular pals. I wouldn’t go as far as saying they’ve been confirmed, however as suspected, The Darkness is certainly ploughing its approach by means of the photo voltaic system. If sure sea-borne purchasing malls get smashed apart, so be it.
For now, there are extra urgent considerations. Season Of The Worthy is near wrapping up. With the urgent menace of a large Cabal spaceship being tossed in the direction of Earth, geometry-breaking time-travellers might have already glimpsed the finale’s results on a knackered-looking Tower. But Warmind Rasputin’s bunkers are already monitoring an enormous mass of encroaching triangles (by way of this gif from Redditor SgtClassicVue).
Once this enterprise with The Almighty is wrapped up, don’t be shocked if Bungie determine it’s time to show off the lights.
