The sad news in all of this is that there are just hours left for lovable robot chum Cayde-6 to live before we'll be sety off on the hunt for his killer. In case you missed it, in the run up to Forsaken Bungie released an extremely cool cinematic detailing Cayde's last stand, and it's fair to say that he goes out swinging. Forsaken's launch will also likely add further steps to the mysterious Spicy Ramen Expired Coupon quest that's been teasing us for some time now. Take a look at Cayde in action below:

Forsaken brings a wealth of new content to the game, both in terms of story and multiplayer. One of the most anticipated new additions is the Gambit mode in which two teams race to kill a slew of Destiny 2's alien monsters to earn points they can then deposit in a central bank. Reach a high enough score and a final boss monster will appear for your team. The first side to slay their final boss wins. Teams aren't isolated however, this is also a PvP mode and and at times they'll have the chance to invade each other's areas. Whether you choose to farm your own area, steal kills on monsters or kill your opponents to slow them down, it's a fascinating new formula to enjoy.
