With Bungie’s upcoming Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion less than two weeks away, fans of the popular MMO are looking forward to sinking their collective teeth into the bevy of new features the developer has been promising ever since the expansion was announced earlier this year. Now, Bungie has announced that one of the most highly anticipated pieces of new content – Forsaken’s ‘Gambit Mode’ – is getting a free trial ahead of the expansion’s September 4th release date.
Announced via the above video, Gambit Mode will be available to all Destiny 2 owners for 24 hours on September 1st, beginning at 10AM PDT. For those unfamiliar with what Gambit Mode is, Bungie describes it as “a 4v4 hybrid mode that merges PvE and PvP experiences into an epic battle. It’s a new way to play Destiny 2, offering something for all players to enjoy, appealing to those who thrive on the competition and unpredictable elements of PvP gameplay, while seamlessly blending the collaborative and cooperative elements of PvE.”
