Yet another Destiny 2 Crucible map has been revealed in an IGN First video, this time showing off an arena that takes players back to Felwinter Peak.
Felwinter Peak was a mountain-top location introduced in the first Destiny‘s Rise of Iron expansion that served as one of the game’s few social spaces. No combat between Guardians took place on the peak in the original game, but this will change for the sequel as the new Crucible map, Vostok, pits players against each other atop its snowy summit.
The latest IGN First episode follows IGN’s Destin Legarie and Destiny 2 environment artist Jeff Horal as they take fans on a walkthrough around the map. While Vostok doesn’t set the fighting within the grounds of the nearby Iron Temple, the battles will go down within clear sight of the temple, among ruins on an adjoining peak. Players will recognize the map from the first story mission of the Rise of Iron expansion, as they would have taken a gondola into the area in an effort to reclaim the temple.
For a better idea on how the map’s central corridors and long sight lines will play out in actual combat, two additional videos feature some gameplay on the new map. The videos are taken from the perspectives of a Warlock and Titan, respectively, with each wielding some of their new subclasses. Note that the power ammo spawning at the beginning of the match was unique to the demo.
The first Crucible map revealed for Destiny 2, Endless Vale, was also done via a recent IGN First episode. It was on this map that the developers gave fans the first details on the major changes coming to the Control mode in Destiny 2‘s Crucible PvP.
Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release date of October 24th. The preload times for the shooter’s upcoming public beta tests were recently detailed, so players can prepare themselves to jump right in.
