The story has never been the strong suit of the Destiny games, but things have become quite interesting with Forsaken, Destiny 2's big expansion for its second year. Instead of releasing everything in a big story campaign, the players ran through, Bungie has slowly been dropping new story at a time each week. Many of these are especially related to Dreaming City, Forsak's big endgame area and the home of race known as Awoken and Curse, a strange phenomenon that holds the place in a three-week time series.
This week saw a new cut scene that suggests a very big twist for history – one that probably has serious implications for Destiny 2's history in the future. The problem is, it is in a strange place and is easy to miss. Here's where to find the new story cutscene in Dreaming City and what it means all. You can also view the above.
Warning: Spoilers beyond this point!
The cutscene is in the Awoken Queen Mara Sov court, which you can only access by completing Petra's weekly reward for Blind We Want. As usual, you will take the offer you receive from bounty to the observatory, where you can contact Mara Sov. Since this is the third week of the cycle, when the curse is strongest, you will be able to jump through the Oracle Engine portal and visit Mara's court where you can usually talk to her personally.
This week, however, Mara is missing. It has also changed a little here ̵
In the video, we see a lonely Ghost flowing through Dreaming City before it happens over a body covered in a white sheet. Another time, the ghosten revives the body and reveals that it is Prince Wool, Mara Sov's brother. The scene mimics the first thing we've ever seen in Destiny, when Ghost first discovered and revived the character of the player. It seems as if the wool is going to be a proprietor, just like the rest of us.
The wolf resurrection is a fairly loaded twist for the Forsaken. The expansion began with the Wools who murdered Cayde-6, one of the main characters of the game, and the first half of the expansion was about hunting the wools down and avenging themselves. Players were helped by Petra Venj, queen of the queen, to stop and kill the wools. But it turned out that the wool was manipulated by the task and perhaps not fully in control of himself. In fact, they took the wool to open their way to dreaming town and begin the curse to begin with.
When the wolves return could be great to deal with the curse, and Mara's absence from the throne suggests that she may have had something to do with it. Every visit to Mara has suggested that she is working on a plan to stop the Taken and Curse, but she is not really willing to explain it to anyone yet. Her brother who returns to life seems quite significant.
A big lingering question is how this affects the characters of Destiny 2. It looked as if Petra was the one who pulled the trigger on the Wools, and Mara always seemed a little odd about her brother's possession and death. We also know that Guardians do not remember their former lives, so will the wool be a completely different person now? Will he still be the bitter jerk we knew briefly in Destiny 1 and in the Forsaken? Will he remember how he looks where he is in the first place?
Apparently, we must continue to see what changes the wolf's resurrection will have on Destiny 2's week-to-week history. Between live content like The Dawning, Destiny 2's holiday event, and The Black Armory's new Forge activities, there's a lot going to happen in Bungie's world-renowned world shooter. Hopefully, Bungie's story tells the lives up to the efforts that players start to discover.
