For those Destiny 2 players who have wrapped up the game's campaign, the question becomes what to do in the game next. Those who have read our review probably know that this isn't an easy question to answer, but Bungie is adding another item to the list: Faction Rallies.
A Thursday afternoon post on Bungie's website indicates that players will soon be able to pledge their allegiance to one of three factions: Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, or New Monarchy.
"Each of the factions of the Tower is having a rally to collect resources for its cause," Senior Designer Tim Williams explains in the post. "They're recruiting Guardians to gather supplies for their faction and destroy enemy resources. They'll offer a suite of rewards to help the Guardians rise up against any enemy threats. As an incentive, each faction has set aside a powerful weapon to entice players to choose their side. The faction whose Guardians collect the most faction packages will be declared the winner. The winning faction will offer the weapon to everyone, but all who pledged loyalty will receive it with a huge discount as repayment for their contributions to their faction's cause."
The idea of a cool new weapon should sound enticing to every Destiny 2 player, but the Faction Rallies will only open up to Level 20 players that have completed the game's campaign. After aligning with a faction, it's time to complete public events, Strikes, Raids, Crucible matches, and more in an effort to earn faction tokens. These can be exchanged for loot, with specifics listed in Bungie's announcement post.
Faction Rallies kick off next week, with Bungie flipping the switch on Tuesday, September 26 at 2AM PT.
