A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid Ship above Europa’s frozen frontier and a dark empire has risen beneath. In Destiny 2: Beyond Light, join your fellow Guardians and bring down the empire at any cost – even if it means wielding the Darkness itself.

Wield the Darkness

As a new threat emerges, so too does a mysterious new power – Stasis. Rooted in Darkness, Guardians will wield this new elemental power to dominate the battlefield. Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters each wield Stasis in a different way, with amazing new subclasses to explore.

A New Raid Awaits

Below the frozen tundra of Europa lies the long-dormant Deep Stone Crypt. Unique rewards await those who can triumph in its enigmatic depths.

New Exotic Rewards

A thrilling new chapter in the Destiny 2 universe awaits in Beyond Light, with new quests, challenges, rewards, and more.

Discover the true power of rice in Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin! Take on hordes of demons in side-scrolling combat to reclaim the land as Sakuna, a spoiled harvest goddess banished to a dangerous island. Then, return to your mountain village and tend a field full of glorious rice.

About This Game

Spoiled harvest goddess Sakuna finds herself banished from her opulent celestial home to an island overrun with demons. In the untamed wilderness, she must rediscover her birthright as the daughter of a warrior god and harvest goddess by weathering the elements, fighting monsters, and cultivating rice, the source of her power. By her side in this forbidding place is her guardian Tama and a group of outcast humans. Together, these unlikely companions must join hands to tame both the soil and the demons of Hinoe Island.

Developed by Edelweiss, the indie team behind the acclaimed Astebreed, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and rice cultivation in a powerful tale about finding one’s place in the world.

KEY FEATURES

Refined Side-scrolling Platforming Action

A Fresh Take on Japanese Mythology
The heroine is part of a pantheon of gods and demons inspired by traditional Japanese mythology but featuring many unique twists. The story and world are filled with lovingly rendered details, some familiar and some completely original.
