A standard aspect for MMOs since their inception has been for 'raids' to be the upper echelon of content geared toward players who enjoy smashing their heads against the wall for hours per day over a few weeks or months.
If main designer Luke Smith's tweets are anything to go by, however, raiding in Destiny 2 is set to be much more welcoming than most MMOs - and far more inviting than the were in the original Destiny.
That's because the first raid of Destiny 2, Leviathan, set to release tomorrow evening for EU players, will have a modest 'Power' requirement of between 260-280 - a feat that should prove easily attainable by most players before long.
On top of the relatively low expected power level, Destiny 2 has a handful of options tuned to make raiding easier. In the past, the Destiny raiding scene felt reserved for those with a full group of committed in-game friends, as in-game matchmaking features were sparse. Those without a competent group waiting for them would have to use outside channels like Reddit posts and forums to organise teams. In Destiny 2, however, the 'Guided Games' feature allows players to fill empty fireteam spots with more lonely players.
The Leviathan raid is set to release at 7pm across Europe tomorrow, meaning West Coast players can head in early on Wednesday morning at 10am. If you're waiting for the PC version, you may want to watch out for spoilers over the next few days.
