Destiny 2‘s first raid won’t be available day and date with the full game’s release, but the game’s director has assured us that we won’t be waiting for long.
Talking with Italian gaming outlet Multiplayer, game director Luke Smith revealed that the release of Destiny 2‘s first raid will come during the game’s “launch period,” similar to that of raids in the first game. The original game’s first raid, Vault of Glass, dropped a week after launch, while various expansion raids, like King’s Fall and Wrath of the Machine, became available just three days after their respective expansions. Smith isn’t yet giving fans an exact date—it’s set to be revealed later in the summer—but we can expect Destiny 2‘s first raid to go live no later than the end of the game’s first week, giving players a little time to gear up.
Smith did not provide any details on the launch of the raid for the PC version of the game, but it will presumably land within the same amount of days following the platform’s Destiny 2 launch.
In another recent interview, Smith revealed that vaults are returning in the sequel. All returning players’ stuff will be gone, but Destiny 2‘s new social space will feature another area for players to store all their hard-earned gear.
Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release date of October 24th. Players can get an early look at the game through the public beta tests going live later this summer.
