Destiny 2: Europa Trailer Breakdown, Secrets

Yesterday, Tuesday, September 22nd, Bungie released a trailer giving an overview of what was to come when we stepped foot on Europa on November 10th. Unless you live under a rock or were to busy pressing “Add to Cart” on your preferred Microsoft retailer to preorder your next-generation Xbox, you witnessed first hand what Europa has in store for our guardians in November.

“Europa is a place of many mysteries. Do not lose your way.”

Variks the Loyal

As the trailer begins we are greeted by the voice of an old friend, Variks who we last heard about when he fled from the Prison of Elders after assisting Uldren and the Barons escape.

As Variks asks us a question we see images of the darkness coalescing on Europa alongside the newly formed House of Dark, a new fallen house wielding stasis against us.

However, the fallen of the House of Dark aren’t the only enemies we will encounter on Europa, because not long into the trailer is the Vex shown to have taken up residency as well.

The trailer closes after showcasing a few secrets that may lie within the Deep Stone Crypt, but that wasn’t all that Bungie revealed.

Europa: The Frozen Frontier

Europa is broken up into five zones: Eventide Ruins, Cadmus Ridge, Asterion Abyss, Charon’s Crossing, and Beyond. With just five zones Europa is set out to be the one of the biggest worlds we’ve stepped foot on. Each zone has its own very unique concept and varying encounters.

Eventide Ruins

Former home to Europa’s colonizers and settlers that only houses the husk of the former Clovis Bray colony.

Cadmus Ridge

A baron snowscape that is the last known location of the buried Bray Exoscience facility.

Asterion Abyss

The centerpiece of Vex activity on Europa.

Charon’s Crossing

The origin of Variks’ distress signal and home to Europa’s communication center.


Where a stranger awaits to guide us through the darkness.

Beyond Light arrives on November 10th and preorders for the collector’s edition and stranger edition are still available at the Bungie Store, and the standard edition and deluxe edition are available through Steam, Microsoft, or the Playstation store as well as the Bungie Store.

I am, what many would call, a Destiny veteran spanning back to when we first dropped into the Hellmouth to take out Crota. In the coming years I would realize this game was a focal point in the development of my life creating many memories with friends and even helping pull me through some of the roughest patches I went through. When I’m not playing Destiny or writing, however, I’m working as a 3rd shift CNA or effortlessly teaching my fiancé how to play as well (hang in there baby you’re doing great). That’s about all I have to say. Hope you enjoy!!!
