Destiny 2’s Raid will drop one week after launch

We’ve finally made it. We are at the end of an onslaught of Destiny 2 trailers, news and marketing. On Wednesday this week the game will finally release, which means the endless onslaught of Let’s Play videos, theories, spoilers and everything else will then begin.

If you care enough about it, you know everything you need to know about Destiny 2, from the format of the Crucible, how the open worlds are going to work, to how we can expect an overflow of story. One thing we know nothing about is the first Raid of the game. We only know two things about the Raid, and that it’s called Leviathan, and that it will unlock one week after the launch of Destiny 2 on 13 September according to game director, Luke Smith:

For those who don’t know, the Raids in Destiny are the main goal. It’s part of the End-game content, it’s usually pretty high level stuff and takes a lot of skill, co-ordination and communication between six players in order to complete. It’s the crème de la crème of the experience, and probably the part of the game I like the most. It’s where I made some of my good friends in the game, and if you’re planning on diving into Destiny 2, then you owe it to yourself to experience what a Raid is about.

Luckily, Bungie is making it easier for people to connect and play in Destiny 2, since the first game required third party apps and portals in order to get new Fireteam members if you were short. It’s a nice addition, and hopefully something that will work well to connect players and communities with each other.

    For players who put in a weeks of leave; it might be enough to get ready for the raid. I doubt I will be leveled up enough by then. But only 2 more days till release … YAY!!!!

    Im starting to feel really bummed about the PC being soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo late to the party…I hope they really learn from this. going to be a crappy time till the PC launch while everyone is playing and talking about this.

      Only solace I get is the fact that most of the streamers that play destiny all say the same thing…Destiny 2 on PC is a much smoother experience, faster responses and more fluid action. So in the long run at least it will be the better experience…

        Yip I pre ordered for pc. Also it should be a smoother launch overall for pc because most of the issues that will inevitably hit the console versions will be ironed out by the time the pc releases.
