The teams are an even split of NBA athletes, singers, streamers and Destiny specialists. Hosting the event will be Mtashed and Drlupo, two content creators who broke out thanks to Destiny content.
Bungie’s Community Manager Deej, who is the regular host of Destiny streams, will also have a hand in Gambit hosting duties.
What is Destiny 2’s Gambit?
Gambit is an all new mode that combines the PvP and PvE sides of Destiny 2.
There are two teams of four that play in separate arenas against PvE enemies. Once enough enemies are defeated, a portal will open that allows a player from your team to go into the other team’s arena to distract and engage in PvP combat.
A PvE boss will spawn on your side after 75 eliminations and the first team to take it out will win the round. The first team to win two rounds will win the Gambit match.
Hot off the heels of the Beyond Light Expansion announcement, Bungie has outlined more exciting DLC plans. In addition to Destiny 2 introducing Beyond Light, they announced ‘Season of the Hunt’ which reveals more content on the way. Some of it will even be free for players that don’t purchase the expansion – including new destinations and weapons.
Destiny 2 is already approaching its fourth season of content since its original release back in 2017. During that time, the game has release Curse of Osiris, Warmind, Forsaken, Shadowkeep, and more. But Bungie has shown no desire to let up and keep announcing new additions for their loyal fanbase to look forward to.
Their latest message was not only a follow-up to the announcement of the Beyond Light trailer, but an extension with even better news. Not only is the expansion set to launch on November 10, but Season of the Hunt will also commence on that date, bringing lots of content – both paid and free.
Bungie have covered Destiny 2’s future until at least February

Bungie Video Documentary
To explain how the process of managing Destiny 2 is going, Bungie has posted a short, video documentary.
Bungie clearly has long-term plans for Destiny 2. You then start to wonder how long it’s going to be until they look ahead to making D3. In any case, there’s plenty of content for existing players to be enjoying for the next few months.
