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.
No, you should be good.

You will want to be in the Tower at daily reset (10am Pacific Time). Not sure what time zone you?re in, so plan accordingly.

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.
Something calls. It’s time to answer.
June 9 // 9AM PT

Until then, the Tower awaits.
