As previously reported, from September 8-14, all existing Destiny players can try the competitive multiplayer maps and two new modes for free as part of the Crucible Preview Event.

There will be seven new Crucible maps: Memento, Bannerfall, Crossroads, Vertigo, The Dungeons, Frontier, and The Drifter.

Sector 618, which is exclusive to PlayStation platforms until at least fall 2016, will also be available for players on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

Players can also try Rift and Mayhem, which are two of the new Crucible modes launching.

In Rift, two teams of six must fight for control of a Spark and deliver it to the enemy team’s Rift to score.

Mayhem is filled with frenetic combat but players can take advantage of charging supers, melee, and grenade energy.

Destiny: The Taken King launches on September 15.
