Ahead of Bungie’s big Witch Queen showcase today, several key details on the expansion have been revealed by an early listing on the Australian PlayStation Store. The expansion is set for a release date of February 22, and will add a new area to explore and a brand new weapon type for the FPS game.
As spotted by TrueTrophies, prior to being taken down, the Australian PS Store listing mentioned a release date of February 23, 2022 – which works out to be February 22 for time zones earlier than Australia’s, which lies relatively close to the International Date Line. The Witch Queen expansion had been delayed earlier this year, and so far Bungie has only officially revealed that it would be arriving “in the early half” of 2022.
Savathûn’s Throne World will be a new patrol zone for Guardians to visit, and the listing described a palace and a swamp as key locations in a “fragile balance of power.” Guardians will have to “delve into Savathûn’s Throne World to uncover the mystery of how she and her Lucent Hive stole the Light.”
