Destiny 2: When Will Nightfall Strike & Raid Matchmaking in Guided Games Begin?

by William Schwartz


Many Destiny players are chomping at the bit to get access to the game’s hardest challenge at the moment, and that’s in the new Nightfall Strike that’s been released for the launch of Destiny 2. While you’ll need to be at least a level 230 to access the Strike, right now many people are having the same problems they were with Destiny 1 when it comes to finding people to play the game with.

Guided Games was announced some time ago, but this new functionality was not included in Destiny 2 at launch.  If you’re wondering when Guided Games Matchmaking for Nightfall Strikes and Raids in Destiny 2 will launch, the answer is soon.

Guided Games Nightfall Strike Start Time

The Guided Games Beta for Nightfall Strikes Begins on September 12th.  This means that players will be allowed to use the guided games feature to take on the Nightfall Strike.  That coincides with the release of the second Nightfall Strike, a twist on The Inverted Spire that will feature the “Momentum” modifier and “Rings” Time Warp modifier.

Guided Games Leviathan Raid Start Time

For those that are going to need a fireteam and are relying on Bungie’s Guided Games feature to tackle the Leviathan Raid when it launches on September 13th, you’re going to have to wait a little bit to actually play that content.  Another Beta for Guided Games on the Leviathan Raid is set to begin on September 26th.

So what’s your best bet to get the Arms Dealer Nightfall Strike this week?  Well the usual suspects are still alive and kicking regardless of whether Bungie decided to launch Guided Games.  Destiny LFG is a good source to pick up players for the Nightfall Strike or any of Destiny’s Challenges that require a fireteam.
