Destiny 2 May Offer More Details About the Stranger


As fans scour for more information about Destiny 2, some new details regarding a never-before-seen character were found in the official product description of the game's Collector's Edition. Inside that $250 version of Destiny 2 comes a physical collector's item called the Frontier Bag, which apparently is a replica of an in-game version worn by a character named Hawthorne.

Not only does the description identify the bag as belonging to Hawthorne, but it also provides some backstory about this mysterious character in Destiny 2:

Born in the City, Hawthorne left as a teen to seek a life of freedom in the wilderness outside the safety of our walls. She has survived for years outside of Guardians’ protection, and has come to learn her true purpose: To provide shelter to humanity by helping them not only survive, but lead a better way of life. This is a frontier bag, as worn by Hawthorne. In it, you will find tools and a place to store the valuable equipment you uncover on your own adventures.

There is no visual reference for Hawthorne, but the look of the bag definitely fits with such a character, appearing cobbled together from different materials and bringing together a number of Destiny's insignias and visual language.

Attached to the bag is a Frontier Kit, which is unabashedly themed around Osiris, including its sunburst exterior and some of the contents inside: a solar blanket and a solar panel USB charger with light. It could be a clue that Hawthorne could play a major role in whatever happens in Destiny 2's first expansion, which appears to be themed around the character Osiris.

With this information and from what has been shown in the two trailers for Destiny 2 already, it appears that the game is looking to be more alive and more character-focused than the original game. Activision has said that Destiny 2 is out to provide a much more memorable narrative this time around, and this bodes well for that sentiment.

As for Hawthorne, fans will have to keep theory-crafting until Bungie decides to officially unveil more information about her.

Who do you think Hawthorne is? A new character or could she be the Exo Stranger? Let us know in the comments!

Destiny 2 releases September 8, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
