Bungie has announced a new upcoming Destiny 2 event, known as a Community Challenge, that will have the entire playerbase working together toward a set of goals. Guardians that decide to take them on will be heading to Mars, where the war against the Hive continues. According to a Bungie blog post, September's challenges are a good opportunity to prepare for Shadowkeep, where players will return to the Moon to fight the Hive.
On Mars, Guardians will need to join forces to complete a Community Objective, which will be available starting September 3 at 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT / 6 PM BST / 3 AM AEST on September 4. Bungie will also release a quality-of-life update on September 3 that will impact the Mars content, but the studio didn't go into detail about what this will entail. You can find more details on the Community Objectives below.
Destiny 2 September 3 Community Objectives
- Defeat 175 thousand Wave 7 Escalation Protocol bosses
- Defeat 300 million Hive on Mars
- Mars Nightfalls
- Defeat Nokris 150 thousand times
- Defeat Xol 100 thousand times
- Use 300 thousand Override Frequencies
It's been an exciting week for Destiny 2 players as Bungie launched cross-save on August 22. This allows players to continue developing their Guardians regardless of what platform they're playing on. Of course, the details of how to do this and full-extent of which characters you can shift around are a little more complicated. Somewhat expectedly, Destiny 2's cross-save rollout had some teething problems, but you should stick with it because it's a fantastic addition to the game.
