It seems that The Pale Heart destination in Destiny 2’s The Final Shape expansion will be significantly different from previous locations in one particular aspect.

Earlier this week, many Destiny 2 content creators and media outlets shared some early previews for The Final Shape, the upcoming expansion for Destiny 2. These previews have provided an in-depth view of the new Prismatic subclass, as well as details about new exotic weapons, exotic class items, and exotic armor pieces.

In addition to that, Bungie unveiled a crucial detail about the new Pale Heart destination that had not been previously disclosed. Skill Up, a well-known content creator and YouTuber, revealed in his preview video that The Pale Heart will be Destiny 2’s first patrol zone designed as a solo instance.

The Pale Heart is the “first patrol zone that you load into that is a solo instance. You can bring a Fireteam with you, and you can matchmake into the Overthrow activity,” Skill Up said. “But, by default, if you load into the Pale Heart, you’ll be loading into a private space without any of the dynamic matchmaking that other patrol destinations have.”

It’s important to mention that while The Pale Heart is a solo instance, players still have the option to bring their friends and form a full Fireteam to explore the zone together, as mentioned above.

Datto, another well-known Destiny 2 content creator, expanded on this by saying, “The Pale Heart is a completely solo destination unless you queue into specific parts of the patrol area via the Overthrow map icon. Otherwise, you are not going to see randoms pop in at all.”

Traditionally, patrol zones in Destiny 2 are shared spaces where players, often referred to as “blueberries,” can encounter each other randomly while completing various activities. However, The Pale Heart breaks this convention by being a solo instance.
