Destiny 2 Season of the Plunder focuses on Eramis the Eliksni, who finally breaks free from the icy clutches of the Stasis power at the end of Beyond Light expansion.

Now back from the dead, Eramis is recruiting old pirate lords of Eliksni legends to recover lost relics that hold great power. It's your job to gather your crew and stop her again in what is a pirate-themed adventure.

Unlike previous Destiny 2 seasons, Season of the Plunder adds three activities for you to partake in. First up is the new six-player activity called  Ketchcrash, in which you go head-to-head with Eramis and her pirate crew.

Next, is the three-player activity called Expedition, in which you assemble treasure maps, dig for treasure, and get it back to your ship while fighting off Eramis' pirate crew members.

Last but not least is the weekly mission for Destiny 2 Season of the Plunder called Pirate Hideouts, in which you will invade pirate hideouts to battle Eramis' pirate lords and loot their hidden powerful relics.
