Future 2 has simply launched a cutscene in the midst of Season of the Abyss that gives solutions to the massive three questions that every one Future 2 followers have been asking for a very long time. Who’s the Witness? What’s the Veil? What’s the ultimate kind?
The Last Form, as we already knew, is the title of Future 2’s subsequent enlargement, however now we have discovered data through mentioned footage that explains precisely what which means, and we’re extra ready and excited than ever to deal with what comes subsequent for the beloved franchise.
When you performed Future 2 through the Season of the Depths, you understand that Commander Sloane and a large sea creature named Ahsa share an inexplicable bond. Ahsa speaks by way of Commander Sloane to relate this footage, which opens to a shot of extra folks, presumably of the identical race as The Witness.
It seems that the Traveller, the large spherical host of the Mild, was as soon as buried on that alien race’s homeworld. Finally, he blessed the folks of the planet with a golden age. Those self same folks known as the Traveler, the Gardener. This has been a reference for a few years inside Future 2, however till now it hasn’t been clear whether or not or not they’re the identical supply of the Mild.
Through the Golden Age the alien race set to work creating the now notorious Black Pyramid Ships which they commandeered the likes of The Witness, Rhulk and Nezarec. After a time period, folks requested for extra construction and extra function from the Traveler and requested for steering. When the Traveler was silent, folks sought out the Winner – whom we all know because the Veil – due to his connection to the Gardener.
After discovering the Veil, he taught folks how Mild and Darkness work collectively and individually, they usually found that simply as Mild is able to giving life, it’s also able to horrific destruction. The folks determined, confronted with this information, that the Mild wanted to be tamed because it was the epitome of chaos. They believed the reply to this was Darkness because it was the antithesis of all that Mild represented, they usually believed it was formed by consciousness.
Individuals thought that in the event that they used the Darkness to tame and form the Mild, they may create the right universe: the Last Type. When folks tried to tame the traveler, he deserted them, however as an alternative of accepting it, folks merged into one kind – the Witness. The title took place as a result of they believed that they had “witnessed the reality at midnight”.
The Witness continued to go looking by way of time and area for the Traveler and, as we now know, managed to create a kind of portal on its floor. The Traveler and the Veil have now been merged, as per the ending of Lightfall, which is how the cutscene ends.
After going through criticism for the way in which it dealt with the Lightfall marketing campaign, Bungie simply dumped all of the solutions we wanted forward of The Last Form. When Future 2’s The Last Form launch date rolls round, we’re now extra ready than ever to deal with The Witness, lore and all.
