During Destiny 2: Season of the Witch (Season 22), players make a deal with the Hive god Xivu Arath. Eris Morn embodies the god, and Guardians must battle to earn tribute for the god so that a deal with Savathun can be honored, helping them find a way into The Traveler.

While it’s too early to tell exactly how the season’s story will unfold, we know that Hive gods love to trick Guardians and hide their true motives. It’s likely that before this season’s end, players will need to battle against unforeseen foes that will try to help Xivu Arath return to the physical world through Eris Morn.

To do this, players will need to complete two new activities, Altars of Summoning and Savathun’s Spire. This will help them unlock cards to build decks with and unlock powerful rewards. Crota’s End may also play a part in this season’s story.
