Destiny: Rise of Iron is almost here. Prepare yourself, Guardian.


Destiny: Rise of Iron launches September 20 – but at what time, exactly? Is it worth getting up early or staying up late? Should you take Tuesday off, or wait till Wednesday to start faking a cough?

Good questions, and the answers depend on your time zone: we gather Destiny: Rise of Iron will launch globally on cycle with Destiny’s Weekly Reset, rather than at midnight September 20. For those of you not totally up to speed on Bungie’s timings, that means we can expect it at 2:00am PT on Tuesday.

So unless that mysterious Destiny space virus ARG changes anything, here’s when you’ll be able to start playing Destiny: Rise of Iron in various timezones around the world:

  • US West Coast – 2:00am
  • US East Coast – 5:00am
  • UK – 10:00am
  • Western Europe – 11:00am
  • Australia East Coast – 7:00pm
