is absolutely popping off on Steam right now having arrived as a free-to-play title around two years after its original launch. It’s currently the four most popular game on the entire platform, overtaking Grand Theft Auto V and in the process. The F2P launched has been joined by the arrival of , a paid expansion which takes players on a quest beneath the surface of our moon.

A new teaser has been released, showcasing the Guardians’ return to the Black Garden which served as arena for the final battle in Destiny 1’s campaign. Will we finally learn what the Heart of Darkness is/was? How will Shadowkeep’s story tie in with the raid? One thing is for sure despite what the trailer seemingly showcased, Jotunn will be disabled.

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep raid release date

Though Shadowkeep releases on October 1, players will not be able to access the Garden of Salvation until reset at 5pm GMT on October 5th (12am ET/9am PT. During the first 24 hours a mode known as Contest will be active and will prevent level advantages in the raid. The first team to complete it will receive a one-of-a-kind World First belt. 

When Contest is active those looking to play will not receive the total benefits of their new gear until this period has passed. After this the full scale of the available Power Level in Shadowkeep will be unlocked.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The expansion includes a huge revamp of the shared-world shooter’s gear system, and brings everyone up to Power Level 750. However, it also resets all major campaign progress, so if you’ve been playing Forsaken but didn’t finish, for example, you’ll have to start again.

Garden of Salvation rewards

As with every previous raid, players unlock rewards after every major section. We know that there’s an entire armour set for each class available, although those are the only raid equipment drops confirmed so far.

All players that beat Garden of Salvation within the first 24 hours will receive an exclusive emblem. The very first team to complete the raid will also receive a lovely belt. If you complete the raid after the first day, you get a banner totting up your Garden of Salvation victories.

We still don’t know anything about an exotic Shadowkeep raid weapon drop. Traditionally the first team to complete a raid would be guaranteed to receive an exotic weapon, but this is not the case for the Garden of Salvation. Although there has been no confirmation of what weapon is specifically linked to the raid, if any, the community has started a process of elimination and decided that the raid exotic is definitely not Eriana’s Vow, Leviathan’s Breath, or Divinity as those weapons are tied to the Destiny 2 Season Pass.
