Bungie announced today that it is adding a new PvP map in “Destiny 2” dubbed as Distant Shore. The announcement came following the postponement of the launch of the Prestige Raid. The extra challenging version of the Leviathan Map was previously scheduled to arrive on October 10. Despite the delay, it will still be a great day for players of the hit shared multi-shooter game from Bungie since the much-awaited PvE event Iron Banner will go live on October 10 as scheduled.

Distant Shore

On their official Twitter account, game developer Bungie shared the images of the new PvP Map that will be added to “Destiny 2.” Dubbed as Distant Shore, the new PvP map looks like the Shores of Time map from the previous game installment.

The map is scheduled to start along with the very first PvE event in the shared multi-shooter title called the Iron Banner.

However, some players will have to wait a little longer to be able to experience the new map. Distant Shore will not be playable in all playlists until the Iron Banner ends, that is to say, a week later. The Iron Banner event will run between October 10 and October 17. So, players can see the new PvP map in the general multiplayer playlist starting October 17.

Postponed launch

The sad thing about this week’s events in the popular shared multi-shooter title of Bungie is the postponement of the launch of the Prestige Raid.

According to Community Manager Cozmo, the more difficult version of the Leviathan Raid will not be launched in the game on October 10. Instead, the game developer moved the release on Wednesday next week; at 10 AM Pacific Standard Time on October 18. The game developer will have to fix the game-breaking bug that plays down the Emperor Calus fight in the title’s Leviathan Raid.

This bug has been in the game for quite some time already. However, recently, this has been immensely shared and taken advantage of the players. Most gaming websites reported about the bug to get the attention of the developer about the situation in the game. This way, Bungie could also roll out a fix to address the issue. While the bug conveniently makes the Emperor Calus fight a little bit easier it actually causes players extra time.

This is not helpful especially for players who are in fireteams aiming to set and break speedrun records.

Bungie postponing the release of the Prestige Difficulty of the Leviathan Raid only shows that they are proactive in responding to issues in the game. It also reflects their desire to keep the integrity of the game challenges intact. “Destiny 2” is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. The game’s PC version is scheduled to be released on October 24.
