Here's something they said before kicking off the show today: “We’ve not shared much about this new threat to humanity. All we know is that this Cabal force, known as the Red Legion, is a new deadly enemy comprised of a variety of combatants from massive soldiers to rabid dog like creatures.
“We’re looking forward to showing off the powers that Guardians will wield, to face off against this new threat, when we reveal new gameplay on May 18th.”
The Destiny 2 release has been set for September 8 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with today's event also expected to confirm the beta launch date.

In terms of the story, Destiny 2 will feature the fightback of humanity following the fall of Earth’s last city.
This will be led by the Vanguard, consisting of three high-ranking Guardians: Zavalla, Ikora Rey, and Cayde-6.
They represent each of the Guardian classes: Titan, Warlock and Hunter and act as leaders of the Guardians – directing the action and setting mission objectives.
Players will face a new enemy known as the Red Legion, while the Attack on the Tower is said to set the tone for the story of Destiny 2.
