Destiny 2: The Final Shape Raid Launch Time And Everything We Know


Bungie has revealed when its new raid activity will go live in The Final Shape, and surprisingly, players will be able to dive into this event much sooner than anticipated. Here’s a look at everything we know so far about the pinnacle PvE activity.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape Raid release date and time

The Final Shape raid will officially launch on June 7, 2024 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. This is a lot earlier when compared to previous raid release dates, as Bungie typically launches one of these activities a full week and a half after an expansion is released. This date will give you just three days to get ready, a challenging prospect as The Final Shape will introduce the Prism subclass and a new faction to battle inside of the Traveler, the Dread.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape Raid story details

Beyond the release date confirmation, Bungie is remaining tight-lipped on the story for its new raid. Raids usually introduce new threats to Destiny 2 in the aftermath of the campaign, and with The Final Shape teasing a final showdown with The Witness, it’ll be interesting to see which antagonist is waiting for players at the end of the storyline to the Light and Darkness saga. There are several possibilities here, as this raid could take a page out of The Taken King expansion and pit players against The Witness in its ultimate form, similar to how Oryx was defeated in the Ascendant Realm when he was at the height of his power.

Xivu Arath is another wildcard who could be the star of this raid, as this dangerous loose thread has been lurking in the shadows ever since she was severed from her Throne World at the end of Season of the Witch. The road map for Destiny 2’s episodes has also hinted at the Hive god of war appearing to menace players after The Final Shape.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape Raid rewards

Bungie hasn’t revealed the rewards available for this event yet, but if it follows the tradition of previous raids, you can expect exclusive weapons, armor, and Exotics from completing runs of the raid.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape raid – How to access

Like The Final Shape, the raid is a paid piece of content in Destiny 2. It can be accessed by purchasing the expansion.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape Raid clan updates

There’ll be several quality-of-life updates in The Final Shape, including improvements designed to reinvigorate the clan system in Destiny 2. Hawthorne will be receiving a vendor reputation track and Guardians can earn clan reputation by completing activities. Clan bounties are also getting overhauled, and there will be two new bounty types available–one for seasonal content and one for dungeons–and all clan bounties will also grant some clan reputation. For established teams, it could be worth paying a visit to Hawthorne to stack up on bounties before the venture into the raid.

Additionally, clan perks are being refreshed, and players will get discounted Raid Banners, Exotic engrams, and more each week when they do a fresh raid run.
