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.
Gambit will be free for all players of Destiny 2 on September 1 for 24 hours. After the free trial, Gambit will require the Forsaken expansion to play.
