Destiny 2 is only a few days away now and many players are already figuring out how they’re taking off of work to begin playing the game. To do that effectively, however, it’s important to know what time the game will be available to play. Additionally, for those who may be attempting World First attempts at the game’s Raid, it is important to know when they will need to be geared up for. Bungie has, thankfully, announced what time Destiny 2 will unlock, and what time players can look to begin the Nightfall, Trials of Osiris, and the new Raid.

Destiny 2 will unlock for players on September 6 at midnight in their country. For the United States, this means that the moment the clock strikes 12 (Eastern Daylight Time that is) guardians will be able to enter this new world without light.

The Nightfall Strikes will be available at the same time, meaning anyone who’s crazy enough to attempt them under-geared can do so. The Raid, however, will become available on September 13 at 1 p.m. EDT. This delay is meant to give players the chance to properly equip themselves and give more players a chance at the desirable World First title.

Trials of Osiris, the game’s most competitive PvP content, will be launching at the same time a day later on September 15.
