Bungie has revealed when Destiny 2 players will have a chance to participate in The Dreaming City’s raid, one of the most anticipated features of the upcoming Forsaken expansion.
In this week’s developer blog post, senior designer Joe Blackburn announced Forsaken‘s raid, Last Wish, will arrive a little over a week after the DLC launches on September 4th. Guardians will be able to jump into the new quest on September 14th at 10 a.m. PT. The team also unveiled an image of the entrance to the raid, which you can check out below.
While new raids have typically arrived only a few days after the launch of an expansion, Blackburn explained Last Wish had to be pushed back to give players time to prepare. “With so many new things to do and so much Power to gain, we knew that players would need more than just three days to prepare for the incredible challenge of Forsaken‘s raid,” he wrote.
What the challenge will be is still a mystery, but Guardians have had a few theories about what will be waiting in the heart of The Dreaming City. After Blackburn posted a cryptic tweet about the raid’s boss, players began speculating on the identity of the formidable opponent. The identities of the boss included Awoken queen Mara Sov, Savathun, and even an Ahamkara, which is an ancient dragon.
While players will have to wait for the boss to be unmasked, Bungie recently revealed a few features of Forsaken will arrive before launch. On September 1st, Guardians will have 24 hours to try out the PvP and PvE Gambit mode. Also, on August 28th, the new weapon slot changes and Heroic story missions will be available to test.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Forsaken expansion will launch on September 4th.
