Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about Destiny.


The Witch Queen begins with Mars suddenly appearing after its descend into the Destiny Content Vault. Savathûn has mysteriously shown herself on the surface of Mars. With Ikora Rey and Eris Morn exploring the new camp near the Relic, the Cabal set up a cannon aiming at Savathûn's ship, and so the opening mission begins.



Sister of Shapes, Sword-Breaker, Witch Queen – which of my many names lives on your lips as you weave your story around me? Even as you tread carefully through my courtyard, among those who worship the Light I have gifted, would you deny me the virtue of this power?

Your answers are telling, Guardian. Ponder them and question those who promise you clarity in the face of all you see here. Listen as their voice wavers. And as you lift your new steel from the heart of your forge, ask yourself, "What force wields you?"

I await you, Guardian. Step into my Throne World and behold the truth.
