Destiny 2 is having another free weekend for Gambit mode

24 September 2018

Much like the previous Gambit trial (which was actually held ahead of Forsaken's full launch), this upcoming trial will be open to all Destiny 2 players, even those who have yet to purchase the Forsaken expansion.

One of the big attractions in the Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion is Gambit, a PvE/PvP hybrid in which two teams of four players race to dispatch waves of enemies and collect "motes" that enable them to occasionally take breaks and go mess with the other side. There will also be new maps crafted to complement the game type.

The goal is to capture a central location and deploy a Breaker that then makes the zone "contested" that results "in an epic tug-of-war between the two teams".

When a team successfully hacks the enemy team's Vault, they win the round.

Should time run out during the process of hacking a Vault, the team will enter Sudden Death until the Vault is either hacked or the enemy team removes all of their progress.

Breakthrough will begin as the Weekly Featured Playlist next week before being added to Destiny 2's Competitive playlist beginning Oct 2. The first one to fill their bank summons a "Prime Evil", the first team to kill the Prime Evil wins the round. Three of the four new maps will be available to all players - but Gambler's Ruin is exclusive to PlayStation 4.

Owners of Destiny 2: Forsaken can start playing Breakthrough in Private Matches on September 25 as well.
