Major Destiny 2 Spoiler Leaks Onto YouTube

There's a very big story twist coming sometime soon in Destiny 2: Forsaken — one that'll leave you asking a lot of questions. It leaked thanks to a video that was published to YouTube and later shared to Reddit. And we're warning you right now: if you don't like spoilers, you should probably stop reading.

Okay, ready? Watch this video.

Now, the video itself is only 59 seconds long, but you learn pretty much everything you need to. Prince Uldren, our primary target in the Destiny 2: Forsaken campaign, is dead, and his body is interred in the Dreaming City. A Ghost has somehow made its way into the Dreaming City and is scanning around. Lore would suggest that this Ghost — decked out in purple — is none other than Pulled Pork, who has been searching eons for his Guardian.

And apparently, Uldren is that Guardian. Pulled Pork revives Uldren, who jolts up and very understandably looks confused. And we're now left to wonder how an alive-again Uldren plays into the grand story of Destiny 2: Forsaken.

A few things to note. When a once-dead being is brought back to life as a Guardian in Destiny, they can't remember their past. So Uldren will have no recollection of his place as Queen Mara Sov's brother. He won't remember killing Cayde-6. He won't know what Hunters, Warlocks, or Titans are. And he's certainly not going to remember your character, who pulled the trigger on the gun that killed him.

But Uldren did kill Cayde-6, whether he remembers it or not. And now that he's alive, the consequence of that action could take the form of the Vanguard Dare. Cayde-6's version of the dare essentially handed the role of Hunter Vanguard over to whoever killed him. Because Uldren killed Cayde, and Uldren is now a newborn Guardian, one could reasonably assume that Uldren could take the vacant Hunter Vanguard post.

We're not entirely sure when the cutscene in question will play out in Destiny 2: Forsaken, but it does shed some light on how Bungie might be approaching its story content in the Annual Pass. The studio spoke in the past about wanting to move away from heavily cinematic campaigns in DLCs, and many took that to mean there would be no cinematics. That appears to be false. It looks as though Bungie will continue to produce CGI cutscenes to help push the story along, though not nearly as much as they would for a full year-long expansion. And it seems Bungie still has some tricks up its sleeve. Not many saw the death of Cayde coming. Reviving Uldren as a Guardian is yet another curveball.

Destiny 2: Forsaken's next DLC, Black Armory, arrives on Dec. 4.
