Witness Destiny 2: The Final Shape’s “World’s First” Salvation’s Edge raid race tomorrow

With the big launch of Destiny 2: The Final Shape in the rear view mirror mostly (our early impressions… one of the best Destiny expansions yet, seriously), the next big piece of the puzzle is set to go live — the Destiny 2: The Final Shape’s “Salvation’s Edge” Raid. All signs point to Salvation’s Edge being awesome, so watching a number of top tier raid teams racing to figuring it out and loot that final chest is always a fun time.

To take part in the festivities at 9:30am PT/12:30pm ET tomorrow June 7th, Bungie has partnered with Twitch Rivals for the World’s First event.  Guardians can take part in the Contest Mode themselves and those who complete it can earn or unlock access to purchase some cool stuff as usual including a raid jacket, pin, title and more.  The very first fireteam to complete the raid will get a Salvations’ Edge World First raid and custom artwork of their fireteam from Swedish 3D Artist Ohlac.  Cool!

Check out some of the details below.

Contest Mode will be enabled with the launch of Salvation’s Edge on June 7 at 10 AM PT, when our bravest Guardians will confront the Witness inside of the portal. Fireteams who finish the raid according to the following requirements can earn exclusive rewards:

  • Players will need to be at 1965 Power level to be at the cap for all of the encounters.
