Destiny 2 is one of the biggest releases of the year. As a series focused on its multiplayer functionality, players will surely want to team up, and conquer the cosmic threats within the game’s world. However, one particular facet pertaining to Destiny 2‘s co-op will not be functional for its release. Developer Bungie announced through Twitter that clan features will not be available for “several days after launch.”

While it’s not intrinsic to success in the new online first-person shooter, clans in Destiny 2 allow for players to find a consistent group of players to explore, and triumph through different quests, Nightfalls, and Raids. They also allow Guardians to earn special rewards as they play the game.

A new clan-required feature known as Guided Games allow solo players to connect with pre-existing clans to play through some of Destiny 2‘s challenging content such as Nightfalls and Raids. A limited soft beta will give select solo players access to the new feature. Here is the schedule for Guided Games Beta rollout:

  • Nightfall Guided Games Beta: September 12th, 10AM
    • 30-50% of players will be given seeker access, depending on clan participation in Destiny 2 during the first week.
  • Nightfall and Raid Guided Games: September 26th, 10AM
    • Target: 100% of players will be given seeker access.

Destiny 2 was revealed back in March with a cinematic trailer. Tons of details have been unearthed since its unveiling including its gameplay features, and brand new story. Recently, players eager for the PC version had the opportunity to play it last week in an open beta.

Destiny 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The PC version will be released on October 24 through Blizzard Battle.net. Check out our review impressions of the highly anticipated shooter to see what we thought.
