Destiny 2‘s player-vs.-player mode is getting a pretty significant refresh with the release of Into the Light, the game’s free upcoming content drop, in the form of three new multiplayer maps.

The new maps take place in some of the more recently added areas of the Destiny 2 universe. There’s one set on the icy landscape of Europa, one in the neon environs of the Neptune city Neomuna, and one in a terraformed Pyramid ship of the Black Fleet.

Bungie gave a look at the new maps during its final livestream providing new details about Into the Light, which is set to release on April 9. While the maps will be available in all game modes in the Crucible, Destiny 2’s PvP arena, Bungie said these maps have all been designed specifically with 3-on-3 game modes in mind. Those modes include the higher-level Competitive mode of the Crucible and the Trials of Osiris, Destiny 2’s toughest PvP challenge.

Eventide Labs, the first of the new maps, is set on Europa, at a refueling station for the giant “Ketch” spaceship of Eramis, the primary antagonist of the Beyond Light expansion. It features both the ancient human architecture and Eliksni buildings seen all over Europa, which are built into the rounded hollows of an ice cave.

The second map is Cirrus Plaza in the city of Neomuna. This is a futuristic shopping center–a big mall, essentially. It includes locations like an arcade and a large, vertical atrium with multiple floors.

Finally, there’s Dissonance, a map set in one of the Pyramid ships that was blasted by the Traveler at the outset of the Lightfall expansion. The ship is a combination of the cold, black architecture of the Darkness and the terraforming, life-giving power of the Traveler. We’ve previously only seen a location like this in the Root of Nightmares raid.

In addition to the new PvP details, Bungie also released information on returning, reprised versions of its lengthy, excellent Exotic missions, The Whisper and Zero Hour. Those will give out craftable versions of their fan-favorite Exotic weapons, Whisper of the Worm and Outbreak Perfected.

Into the Light is also getting a new raid-boss-rush mode called Pantheon, which sounds like it’ll offer raid rewards to players, including some they might have missed in the past, like adept weapons, Exotics, and even emblems.

Alongside the launch of Into the Light, Bungie is set to give out more info on its next big Destiny 2 expansion, The Final Shape, in a livestream scheduled for 9:30 AM PT / 12:30 PM ET on April 9.
