Destiny


 

Bungie’s latest weekly blog post has unveiled the full calendar of events planned for Destiny 2‘s first month. While there’s plenty of exciting info to pick apart—timing for the raid, Nightfall Strikes, Flashpoints, the renamed Trials, and the Guided Games betas—what might be even more interesting is what’s not there.

First up, Xûr, everyone’s favorite arms dealer wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a sweet-ass hood, will be missing out on the first Friday of Destiny 2. That’s right, you won’t be able to peruse his deadly wares until September 15th, the same day the first Trials of the Nine kicks off. We’re guessing that’s not a coincidence, given what (little) we know about Xûr.

Second, the Iron Banner isn’t even on the calendar at all. It’s relegated to a small mention in the text below that promises it’ll arrive in October, alongside higher difficulties for the Leviathan raid. When in October? Looks like we’ll have to wait to find out.

If you’re curious about the rest of the schedule, you can take a look for yourself:

The only real mystery on the calendar is the Faction Rally, scheduled to kick off on September 26th. The image features the logos of the three factions that appeared in the original Destiny, so maybe this will be like a pledge week where you can sign up with your group of choice after a bunch of other Guardians get drunk and paddle you. Well, probably not exactly like that.

Of course, plenty of Destiny 2 players will probably be most upset that there’s no entry on the calendar for “fix shaders,” given how much controversy spawned from Bungie’s decision to make the cosmetic items single-use. Maybe the community should be focused on other, more pressing concerns instead.

Destiny 2 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release slated for October 24th.

Update: Bungie released an updated version of the schedule correcting an earlier error. The correct image has been inserted above.
