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:
There will be no Raid tease for Destiny 2's first Raid.
It will launch at 10 a.m. Pacific on Sept 13
Trials arrives 10 a.m., Sept 15

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.
