Season of the Lost will play a key role in Destiny 2's long-term future, being the prelude to The Witch Queen expansion, and bringing some much-needed features such as crossplay, Bungie will surely look to kick start it with a bang.

This is the first part in what promised to be a lengthy story quest, with possibly worthy rewards for those that decide to grind it out. 

Let's get down to business and tell you everything you need to know about Tracing the Stars in Destiny 2.
