Destiny 2 Month 1 schedule includes Faction Rally, Xur, Guided Games, Trials of the Nine and more

Destiny 2 players can look forward to new weekly milestones and regular events during this first month of the shooter sequel’s content calendar.

Bungie has released full details of its regular Destiny 2 schedule, including which strikes will be featured in Nightfalls, where the Flashpoint is heading and which map and mode will be featured in Trials of the Nine.

It has also reiterated launch date of the first Destiny 2 Raid, Leviathan, as well as Guided Games, part of Destiny 2’s delayed clan features.

There’s something new coming too – Faction Rally. An image showed the familiar Future War Cult, Dead Orbit and New Monarchy logos, so we’re guessing it has something to do with completing various Activities to earn faction reputation, probably resulting in engrams. Will it be endgame level? Let’s hope so.

Finally, it officially confirmed the return of Xur, the tentacular weekly vendor, to Destiny 2. He’ll be found somewhere in the game world every weekend starting September 15. We never doubted you, old pal.

Bungie hinted at October’s content plans as well, commenting that you’re be able to test your “prestige” in the raid, which sounds a lot like Destiny 2’s version of Heroic difficulty – or perhaps Raid Challenges. Additionally, Iron Banner will be back during October.

Here’s the solid intel we have so far. Destiny 2 resets on Tuesdays, which is why the Nightfall and Flashpoint update then. As in D1, Xur and Trials of the Nine are only available from daily reset on Fridays through to the end of the weekend.
