The Destiny 2 Vault of Glass Raid Race has been announced and will be arriving this Saturday, marking the first time such a competition is taking place in Bungie's multiplatform MMO.

Destiny 2 is an MMO, so it should come as no surprise that it's got more than its fair share of raids. The return of the Vault of Glass, however, is going to be something a little different from what gamers have experienced before — this time, it's going to be a raid race!

How Does the Destiny 2 Vault of Glass Raid Race Work?

The Destiny 2 Vault of Glass Raid Race will be a tough challenge for gamers — especially those who are going for the coveted "World First" position. Here's what you need to know according to a press release:

  • All participants must be at 1,300 Power to be at the cap for all involved encounters.
  • Beating the Vault of Glass with "Contest Mode" enabled will unlock the new  Challenge Mode in the Director and the "Tempo's Edge" Triumphs.
  • The first team to successfully complete all of the "Tempo's Edge" Triumphs will be recognized as the "World First" for overcoming this challenge.
    • Your team will wipe should it fail to complete any of the success conditions during each encounter.

Going for World First in anything requires a lot of preparation and coordination; it's understandable that more casual players might not even want to attempt it. That said, there's still a reason to take a shot at it — all Guardians who successfully complete this event during the 24-hour window will unlock special Bungie Rewards that can be claimed via the Bungie Store.

You can tune in to the Destiny 2 Vault of Glass Raid Race pre-stream on ProfessorBroman's Twitch channel on Saturday, May 22, 2021, starting at 12:00 PM Eastern; the Raid Race begins one hour later at 1:00 PM. You can experience all of the fun by playing Destiny 2 for free on PC and consoles via its official website.
