Destiny 2 Brings Back Xur, Raids, And Trials
Your guide to all things new in the world of Destiny 2.

While the game has only been out for two weeks, Destiny 2 is proving to be everything the original Destiny promised, and more. The game has improved on almost every issue from the first one and now we are starting to see some familiar content go live. Let’s take a look at what’s new in Destiny 2.

Xur Is Back, Baby

Xur, mysterious Agent of the Nine, is back to sell us more exotic items. Unlike in the original Destiny, users no longer have to google where he is every week, instead Bungie has him appearing as a trackable target on whatever planet he is on. This week you can find him on Nessus selling some great items including the Merciless fusion rifle, a weapon every Guardian attempting the Leviathan Raid absolutely needs to have in their arsenal.

It’s Time To Raid The Leviathan

Having spent countless hours completing the different raids in the original Destiny, I could not be more excited to tackle the latest Raid challenge. The game recommends users reach a Power Level of at least 270 before attempting the Raid, but your best bet is to get closer to 285 or 290. The raid takes several hours to complete, but the rewards are worth it.

Trials Of Osi… Er… The Nine

Trials of Osiris, the popular PvP mode that took players of the original Destiny to the Lighthouse (if they were good enough) is back. Sort of. The mode has been rebranded as Trials of the Nine and Power Level advantages are disabled, meaning that a lower level player will not have to worry about getting stomped by higher level players just because of stronger weapons and armor.
