Destiny 2 gets its first Fortnite-style live event today

UPDATE: Destiny 2’s first live event has now completed.

THERE MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD.

Bungie had signalled Rasputin would take aim at The Almighty at 6pm UK time. An hour and a half later, red trails in the sky above the Tower caused a massive explosion on the Cabal superweapon, which then proceeded to fall to Earth.

As The Almighty shot across the sky, debris smashed into parts of the Tower. The superweapon landed behind the Tower with another blinding explosion. Parts of the Tower are now damaged, and players are exploring the social space to work out what’s changed.

Here’s a video of how the event concluded:

While it was cool to see The Almighty blow up and crash into the Earth, it felt very much like a 90 minute wait for a cool few minutes of action. Still, it’s great to see Destiny try something it’s never done before.

ORIGINAL STORY: Bungie has signalled Destiny 2 will see its first Fortnite-style live event as powerful AI Rasputin takes aim at The Almighty, a massive Cabal superweapon that’s on a collision course with The Last City on Earth.

This event is the climax of Destiny 2’s 10th season, dubbed Season of the Worthy, and a storyline that involves The Almighty plummeting towards The Last City. The Almighty is a massive Cabal superweapon that was left broken and orbiting the Sun at the end of the Destiny 2 campaign. At the beginning of the season, a desperate Psion Flayer set The Almighty on a collision course with earth. Players then had to effectively charge up Rasputin via a series of Seraph Tower events so it could use its powerful weapons to shoot The Almighty out of the sky.

So, what should we expect? It’s expected The Almighty does not destroy Earth or the Tower, but players have found evidence Destiny’s famous social space does get properly smashed up – by glitching into the future of the Tower.

Whatever happens, this is Destiny 2’s first ever proper live event in the Fortnite sense. Bungie staff have said Destiny 2 players can load into the Tower before the reset, and do not need to restart the instance to witness the fun.

Things are certainly hotting up in the world of Destiny 2. As we’ve reported, it finally looks like The Darkness is coming to the world of Destiny. Season 11 kicks off 9th June, the same day Bungie will reveal the game’s next expansion.

Until then, the Tower awaits.
