Destiny 2 Warmind content – what’s in it?
Warmind will bring with it an assortment of new content to Destiny 2, much of which seems to outweigh what we saw in Curse of Osiris.
One of the main features is the Escalation Protocol, a horde-mode that promises to be challenging for even the most veteran players. This public event can be found on the newly introduced planet of Mars where you’ll be able to team up with friends or strangers to take down enemies and bag some loot.
The Protocol also contains unique weapons and cycling objectives so you don’t need to worry about immediately repeating the same tasks in a hopeless grind for loot. If anything, this is a change we’d like to see all of Destiny 2 adopt.
Warmind also comes with a new Raid Lair, Strikes, Public Events and finally, a new NPC known as Ana Bray who can be found in The Tower for extra bits of loot and lore to uncover. Oh, and players will finally have access to an emote wheel, which means no more swapping out hard-earned cosmetics!
You can also expect a healthy of array of new weapons, armour and more to sink your teeth into come May 8.

The first raid activity for Warmind – Spire of Stars – will debut shortly after the expansion’s release on Friday, May 11. More specifically, you and your fireteam can dive in at 6PM GMT. Raid activities normally unlock long after the expansion itself, making this an unusual change from the norm.
It’s worth keeping in mind that Spire of Stars isn’t a full raid, but a ‘lair’ featuring a shorter, more contained mission. However, you can still expect plenty of loot and challenge when compared to standard missions.
