Destiny 2: Forsaken isn’t even a month outside of the initial reveal, but Sony debuted a brand new story reveal trailer at the PlayStation E3 Showcase.

The trailer begins with Cayde-6 — the rogue comic relief of the Destiny universe — clearly bruised and bloody (so to speak). Surrounded by the Fallen from the Reef, with the Prince of the Reef (Uldren Sov) holding a gun at him. He fires at Cayde’s Ghost as enemies encroach. Then you see Uldren walk towards a portal, over the body of Cayde.

While not explored in the trailer, Bungie goes into further detail in the reveal trailer’s description:

The Reef has fallen to lawlessness, and now the most-wanted criminals in the galaxy – the Barons & Uldren Sov – have organized a jailbreak at the Prison of Elders. You and Cayde-6 have been sent in to bring law and order back to the embattled facility, but things do not go to plan. Facing insurmountable odds, Cayde-6 ends up paying the ultimate price. Beyond the Vanguard’s authority, you’ll venture into the Reef alone and take justice into your own hands. Explore new regions, awaken new powers, earn a wealth of new weapons, and uncover lost Awoken secrets. The hunt is on.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is launching on September 4, 2018 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.If you don’t already own it, you can find Destiny 2 over on Amazon. You can check out the story reveal trailer below :
