Destiny 2 players who own the game’s Annual Pass will be able to dive into Season of the Drifter content starting on March 5. At the same time, free seasonal updates will be made available in Destiny 2. Season of the Drifter as a whole will is scheduled to run from March 5 all the way until May 6.

In terms of content, Season of the Drifter will focus on the mysterious Drifter, “with evolutions of that little game he calls Gambit and a dangerous alliance with the Nine,” explains Bungie. As the inclusion of “the Nine” suggests, Annual Pass owners will be able to grab an “Invitation of the Nine” from Xur (Agent of the Nine) on Friday, March 15.

For those unfamiliar, Xur is an Exotic goods vendor who appears at a random location every week starting on Friday in Destiny 2, then disappears on Tuesday. On Friday, March 15, players have added incentive to visit Xur. By picking up an Invitation of the Nine from Xur, players will be tasked with completing a series of objectives.

Once completed, the invitation will transform into a special bounty called “Into the Unknown.” These bounties can only be completed once per character, with new bounties available each week. Over the course of nine weeks, players have the ability to earn special rewards and pieces of lore from these bounties.

Additionally, Destiny 2 players with the Annual Pass will be given a plethora of combat specialties and challenges. For example, the Drifter will offer new Power Surge Bounties that can help bring your Level 50 characters up to 640 Power. Other things to look forward to include Gambit Prime events from March 12 through March 19, a free Arc Week starting April 9, and an extended final event called The Revelry which runs from April 16 through May 6.
