Destiny 2 Lightfall Story

The Lightfall expansion will have you fight against The Witness and his disciple, Calus, in the futuristic city of Neomuna, set on the planet Neptune.
Calus has a new army called Shadow Legion (neo Cabals?) that wields a mysterious new power called Suppression.

As Guardians, you will fight alongside Cloudstriders, the protectors of Neomuna, and use the new dark subclass Strand to traverse and takeover this secret city of Neptune.

According to Lightfall's official description, "Shattered glass glints in the starlight. Soldiers of the Shadow Legion battle with Guardians under the unmistakable shadows of the fleet overhead—the Witness and its newest disciple are here. Find strength in the Light, arm yourself with Darkness, and peer beyond the veil as you raise the stakes on an already unforgettable campaign. Legendary Mode returns."

Destiny 2 Lightfall Subclass - Strand

As the leaks suggested, Bungie is adding a fifth subclass to Destiny 2 in the Lightfall expansion. It's called Strand. Strand gives you a grappling hook to traverse not just the city of Neomura but other Destiny 2 planets as well.

The new green-colored Destiny 2 subclass also adds unique new super abilities for every subclass. Hunters are Threadrunners, running around with a whip. Titans wield this giant claw and are called Tyrant. Warlocks unleash strand missiles and are called Architect.

The Lightfall expansion will also add legendary and exotic Strand weapons though Bungie has not revealed more info on this. That's Destiny 2 Lightfall in a nutshell.
