Destiny 2’s latest expansion is full of surprises. It’s brought along exciting new things that are still discovered, and now it has brought back the a key location from the first season. The Old Tower from The Red War is making its return, and here is what we know so far.

Beyond Light has brought a plethora of new content to Destiny 2. It’s set on Europa, the icy cold moon of Jupiter, and this location is filled to the brim with exotic weapons, armor, special enemies and new challenges. In addition to these, we are also seeing the return of some familiar things.

The Red War was Destiny 2’s first main story campaign and it pitted Guardians against the looming threat of the Cabal Red Legion. This enemy bombarded The Last City on the Battle of Six Front’s anniversary, and destroyed the original Tower. Now a few years later, the tower is finally making its return.

Speculation about this started when some leaked artwork showed the Traveler and the original Tower, both looking much like they used to before their fates in The Red War. This was followed by Destiny 2 player W0rdsm1th  discovering signs of reconstruction at the site of the destroyed tower.

There is a yellow scaffolding and other construction equipment surrounding the ruins of this old structure. Now many other players have reported spotting the same thing when looking from the second level of The Last City.

We wondered if this would just be an Easter egg for Destiny Veterans to enjoy. That it would just serve as a reminder of the Red War and a sign that the world is moving forward, but we were hoping that Bungie was showing it being repaired to tease a new expansion. Now we know that this is related to the upcoming end of season event that has an Iron Banner quest titled “A Tower Rebuilt.”

This quest will take place on December 8 and it’s for a Hand Cannon and Scout Rifle, just like last season. The Iron Banner Quest will have you take down foes with your Super, capture zones, and land final blows with the Hand Cannon.

The Steady Hand and Guiding Sight are the reprised weapon that will be used in the event. You can find more information about the quest on the DestinyTracker Twitter account.

This is sure to excite fans who played Destiny 2’s campaign upon the game’s launch. This is the first time in years that The Last City’s Old Tower will be a vital part of the season so visiting it again will feel nostalgic. You should expect brand new challenges and announcements over the coming weeks until the start of the end of season event.

This is all we know about the reconstruction of the Old Tower so far and we’ll keep checking for more updates. We don’t know what this entails exactly for the future of this location but we’re excited to find out!
