Update: Well, it is over. Rasputin destroyed the Almighty, and after a lengthy wait as missiles arced by way of the sky after which lastly slammed into the ship, the Almighty was torn aside, crashing within the mountains simply past the Tower. Some particles got here down close to the Last City, however the disaster was averted.
If you missed it, you possibly can nonetheless see the wreckage of the Almighty within the distance from the again of the Tower, reverse the place Zavala stands. Debris remains to be falling from the sky and the ship remains to be burning, but it surely’s not clear if there is perhaps extra occurring with the Almighty–perhaps visiting the crash site–in the longer term. Watch the embedded video to see what occurred if you happen to could not be there in-game.
Visit Zavala to unlocks some new dialogue about what occurred. You can even discuss to Ana Bray on Mars to get one other little bit of story, though her dialogue is in textual content kind. Beside Zavala on the left is the small quantity of harm the Almighty managed to do to the Tower, within the type of a gap that was ripped in a wall. Hop down into it and you will be prompted to “Inspect the Crash Site.” Doing so will earn you a commemorative emblem, “Seraph’s Wings,” for participating within the Season of the Worthy and serving to to destroy the Almighty.
Original Story: All all through Destiny 2‘s present content material season, gamers have been finishing Seraph Tower occasions in an effort to energy up Rasputin, a strong laptop that when managed your complete photo voltaic system’s defenses. The plan was for Rasputin to make use of its weapons to shoot down the Almighty, an enormous spaceship that is at present hurtling towards the Last City on a collision course. After months of preparation, the time to shoot down the Almighty has lastly come–it occurred round 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET in the present day, June 6.
Bungie tweeted that we’ll lastly see Rasputin take care of the Almighty in the present day, just some days earlier than the launch of Season 11 on June 9. The official tweet is skinny on particulars, nevertheless; it would not say precisely what is going on to occur on the day by day reset, or what gamers ought to count on.
It does sound prefer it is perhaps a good suggestion to be within the Tower on the time of the reset, nevertheless. That’s in keeping with Lars Bakken, the Season of the Worthy’s artistic lead, who responded to gamers on Twitter Friday to encourage them to signal on.
You will need to be within the Tower at day by day reset (10am Pacific Time). Not certain what time zone you’re in, so plan accordingly.

That feels like we’ll be seeing a reside occasion happen in Destiny 2 at its reset in the present day. Destiny is often extra about cutscenes and missions for occasions like this that do not require you to log in at particular times–the concept that you should be within the recreation at a sure time sounds extra like one of many reside occasions that Fortnite and different reside video games have been recognized for.
In the sport, the Almighty could be seen giant within the sky of the Tower, blocking the solar.
It’s been some time within the works, however Rasputin knocking out the Almighty is the fruits of the occasions of this content material season. The ship really first appeared within the Destiny 2 vanilla story campaign–it was a part of the Red Legion’s invasion of the photo voltaic system. The ship is basically a giant gun the Cabal use to destroy stars; if they cannot conquer a star system, they destroy it. In the story marketing campaign, gamers disabled the Almighty, but it surely has been caught in orbit across the solar ever since.
In Destiny 2’s final season, the Season of Dawn, a trio of Red Legion psions tried to make use of time journey to alter the result of the Red War from the vanilla story marketing campaign. They failed, due to the efforts of gamers, and as a last-ditch effort, the remaining Red Legion forces set the Almighty flying straight on the Last City. It’s taken a very long time for the ship to point out up, and within the meantime, gamers spent the Season of the Worthy powering up Rasputin’s capabilities to destroy the ship earlier than it crashes into town.
From a narrative standpoint, that looks as if it might have unexpected penalties. Zavala, for one, would not belief that Rasputin has the most effective pursuits of humanity at coronary heart. And through the course of the season, we discovered about some unhealthy stuff Rasputin obtained as much as over time. In “The Lie,” it was revealed that Rasputin was accountable for destroying the Iron Lords, a narrative that was advised again in Destiny 1. That means that Rasputin is perhaps much less predictable and dependable than some might need hoped.
Though we all know Rasputin is lastly going to take care of the Almighty in the present day, we do not but know the place the story goes after that. Bungie is planning a reveal livestream on June 9 earlier than the discharge of the brand new season, and that ought to inform us what to anticipate each from Season 11 and the upcoming begin of Destiny 2’s Year 4, which can kick off within the fall.
