The day has finally arrived, Destiny 2 welcomes the Vault of Glass, the game's first-ever raid that debuted back in 2014.

Naturally, as Bungie's FPS has evolved since then, this new version of the Vault of Glass has a ton of surprise in store for Guardians and fireteams looking to uncover its secrets once again.

If you want a reminder of what to expect during the Vault of Glass World First raid race, here's a quick rundown:

  • Contest Mode (Power Level advantages capped) will be available for the first 24 hours. Guardians need to be at least 1300PL.
  • Clearing Vault of Glass with Contest Mode active is the first step to access the new Challenge Mode in the Director and the Tempo's Edge Triumph. 
  • Completing Tempo's Edge, a curated list of Triumphs, in this newly unlocked Challenge Mode, will be how a fireteam crosses the World First finish line and claims their prize.
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in the Challenge Mode, your team will wipe if you fail the success conditions during each encounter.
