Destiny 2: Forsaken is Hosting Another Free Weekend for Gambit

This time all the maps and monsters will be available.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is available now and one of the best new features is a brand new PvP/PvE mode called Gambit. Bungie was so confident in its new mode it offered a free trial the weekend before Forsaken launched, but for those who missed Bungie is offering a second free trial that's even bigger.

The next free trial for Gambit will be held on September 21 – 23 and will include all the enemy races and all four Gambit maps. That means players will have access to the new Scorn race introduced in Forsaken, as well as any Forsaken maps as well.

Gambit is a PvPvE, asymmetrical multiplayer mode where two teams are transported to two separate maps. There the teams must eliminate hordes of enemies and collect "motes" which are bankable currency. For every tier of motes banked, a new threat will be summoned to your enemy's like new bosses, or the ability to venture into their map, Dark Souls-style, and kill enemy players yourself.

Bank 75 motes and you'll summon a Primeval, which is a big boss monster. The first team to summon and eliminate their Primeval wins the best two out of three match.

Alongside Gambit are a host of new additions to Destiny 2, including a new Raid area called the Dreaming City, and quality of life improvements players have been asking for this past year. Check out our Destiny 2: Forsaken guide for all the new changes and check out Gambit on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
