In Bungie’s Destiny 2 weekly update, Raid Challenges have been announced alongside helpful guides for the game’s PC launch, which is scheduled for October 24 at 10 a.m. PT through the Battle.net client.
Raid Challenges will be added to Destiny 2 starting on October 31. They will add an optional objective to a different raid encounter each week. Complete the challenge and you’ll receive a new emblem, as well as a guaranteed raid drop for that encounter.
Details of what Raid Challenges will actually entail have not yet been made clear, and it seems like part of the difficulty will be working out each week’s task.
“We won’t be giving you any hints on how to complete these challenges, but we will let you know when you fail with an in-game message. Your Director will tell you what is at stake each week.”
PC players joining the fight will likely be eager to know when the Nighfall, Raid and other activities will be available to play. Happily, Bungie has now provided a detailed launch calendar.
