All Destiny Owners Can Play The Taken King’s Crucible Maps & Modes for Free Next Week

September 4, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

When update 2.0 goes live on September 8, Bungie will have a surprise waiting for every owner of Destiny, whether you pre-ordered The Taken King or not.

Running from September 8 – 14, a special Crucible Preview Event will be held, giving you the chance to “experience new modes of battle on every brand new map” from The Taken King.

Bungie adds:

One thing to note: You won’t have the use of your new Super abilities yet. You’ll have to visit your class Vanguard in The Taken King to earn your new subclass. For now, though, you can and should check out the new slate of maps on offer, and two of the new modes.

Come September 15, “the new Crucible content will become the sole property of those Guardians who pick up and continue playing The Taken King.”

If you purchase The Taken King, you’ll be able to officially start playing it at 2am PT/5am ET on September 15. “We have some fun to have between now and then,” Bungie says. “We also have a lot of content to download. We’ll be with you every step of the way.”

Will you be trying out The Taken King’s PvP content next week?
