DESTINY 2 SEASON OF THE DRIFTER – WHAT IS THE RELEASE DATE? WHEN IS THE START TIME?
Destiny 2 Season of the Drifter has a release date of Tuesday March 5 2019.
The Destiny 2 reset is scheduled that day for 5pm UK time so Season of the Drifter is likely to go live after that.
That is, barring any server downtime taking place ahead of the rollout of Destiny 2 Season of the Drifter.
DESTINY 2 SEASON OF THE DRIFTER – WHAT ARE THE BIG CHANGES?
The big updates for Destiny 2 Season of the Drifter is the inclusion of the Gambit Prime and The Reckoning activities.
Here, in Bungie’s own words, is what fans can expect…
GAMBIT PRIME: This little game we call Gambit has evolved. This is where you prove you’re a Gambit veteran! Choose a specific combat role and build a new armor set with perks that will change the game. With only one round to choose the winner, teamwork will be king.
THE RECKONING: Winning a round of Gambit Prime is just the beginning. The Drifter has a whole new extension of the Destiny endgame. Take your rewards and risk them in a new challenge that belongs to the Nine. Confront swarms of enemies to unlock greater rewards that you can take with you into battle.
DESTINY 2 SEASON OF THE DRIFTER – ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
Next week Bungie will also roll out Invitations of the Nine as part of Season of the Drifter.
Describing what fans can expect from this new questline, Bungie said: “Invitations of the Nine, once upon a time referred to as Xur Bounties, will be an exploration of the Nine and their mysterious place in the universe.
“The path begins with Xur on Friday, March 15. Annual Pass owners will be able to pick up an ‘Invitation of the Nine’ from Xur.
“Once the objectives are completed, it will transform into a bounty called ‘Into the Unknown’.
“These will be available to complete once per character, similar to the bounties you got at the beginning of Forsaken for completing an activity with a full gear set.
“Week over week, for Nine weeks, you’ll collect new lore and powerful rewards.
“For Annual Pass holders, the rest of the Season of the Drifter packs in new combat specialties to embrace and new challenges to master.
“Like Season of the Forge, this journey will roll out over time, but the Drifter has plenty of action for players to experience on day one.
“If you think your Power is low and you want to get caught up to the rest of the community, see the Drifter to complete his new Power Surge Bounties.
“There are enough of them to bring your level-50 characters up to 640 Power.”
