One of the greatest new additions of Destiny 2‘s newest expansion, Gambit, is going to be free this weekend for ALL players!
This PvP/PvE hybrid sees two teams of four racing to fight off wave after wave of one of Destiny’s 4 alien species. As you take down enemies they drop motes that must be placed into a bank. Once you have enough banked motes, harder enemies will spawn on the opponent’s side and they must defeat them before their bank opens again. The first one to fill their bank summons a “Prime Evil”, the first team to kill the Prime Evil wins the round. Gambit is a way for players that enjoy PvE over PvP to still play with friends, without the stress of modes like the Crucible.
Gambit Mode is an integral part of the Forsaken expansion, but for a few short days, all Destiny 2 players will be able to enjoy this insanely fun, new mode. Beginning September 21 (10 am PST / 1 pm EST) and running through September 23, Gambit can be enjoyed by all, not just those that purchased Forsaken. The free trial lets players access every Gambit map, as well as having the chance to fight the Scorn, Hive, Red Legion, Fallen, and Vex.
For players that have yet to experience Gambit, Bungie released a “Get the most out of your free trial” strategy guide. The guide breaks down everything from the basics, to summoning Blockers, to not getting cocky in the round’s final moments. After all, it’s not over til its over.
Destiny 2 Forsaken is available now. If you have yet to take the plunge, check out our review where we tell you why this expansion is the one Destiny needed to get itself on the right path.
