Destiny 2: Beyond Light Raid, Deep Stone Crypt, 'Race To World First' Details Revealed

by Liana Ruppert on Nov 19, 2020 at 05:22 PM

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has officially kicked off and with it comes a new raid that launches on Friday, November 21. If you're like me, you're itching to see what new sort of hell Bungie has lying in wait, and while we still have a little longer to go, we do have new details about what this new experience will entail for those looking to be among the first to beat it. 

The new raid is called Deep Stone Crypt and will be available at 10 AM PST this Saturday. With new rewards and a challenging new experience, the competition definitely heats up with the return of the Raid Race to be the first team to complete the run.

The race to be the first to beat the new raid kicks off this weekend, with some sweet rewards to the team that wins clean. "Once the raid has been conquered, we will announce that the activity has been completed from @Bungie on Twitter. After this, our teams will start diving into the data to verify that the first completion was clean. Our hope is to be able to announce the winners shortly after World first, but we want to ensure our validation efforts are sound. Ultimately, our goal is to have a post congratulating the winning team on Monday, November 23."

For a quick recap about the Contest Mode for this: 

  • Contest Mode will cap all players at 20 Power below each encounter for 24 hours.  
  • Artifact Power will be disabled during Contest Mode.  
  • Your team’s Power Cap goal is 1230 for all the encounters.   
  • Being above 1230 will not provide any additional advantage in the final fight. 

You can see the sweet rewards for winning right here through the official Bungie blog post (I'm going to need that jacket).
