Destiny 2 Beyond Light has a new raid coming, and it’s now less than a week before things kick off across PS4, Xbox One and PC. Each new expansion traditionally comes with at least one Raid, and Beyond Light is one of the first that has vaulted previous content. This makes the new Deep Stone Crypt Raid even more important, as it becomes a focal point for the community to enjoy. This usually includes a race to see which fireteam can complete the event the quickest, an achievement that is then confirmed and shared by Bungie.

New details about the Raid are starting to be revealed ahead of the full release date, although there will still be plenty of puzzles to solve when it does go live.

For those who might have missed it, Guardians will be tasked with delving into the Deep Stone Crypt on the frozen moon of Europa to test their teamwork and skills against its unknown challenges later this month.

And the good news is that we now know when the first Destiny 2 Beyond Light Raid will be starting on its scheduled release date.


Bungie has confirmed that the Destiny 2 Beyond Light Raid release date has been set for Saturday, November 21, 2020.

This will make it possible for all the interested fireteams to assemble and take on the challenge together, avoiding issues with a workday launch.

And we even know when to expect everything to kick-off, with Bungie revealing that the Destiny 2 Raid release time has been set for 10am PDT in the United States.

For gamers in the UK, this will mean taking on the Deep Stone Crypt Raid at around 6pm GMT on the same day.


For those wishing to enter into the World First run, players will need to ensure their gear is up to scratch.

And even for those who are just jumping in to have some fun, Bungie has released the official Deep Stone Crypt Power Level restrictions.

This can be found below and include the following:

  • Contest Mode will cap players at 20 Power below each encounter for 24 hours.
  • Artifact Power will be disabled during Contest Mode.
  • 1230 Power is your team’s goal to be at the cap for all the encounters.
  • Being above 1230 will not provide additional advantage in the final fight

Players who finish the raid before 9AM PT/5PM GMT on 1 December will be able to purchase the Europa-ready raid jacket from the Bungie store through Bungie Rewards.

The World First raid race for Deep Stone Crypt kicks off at 10AM PT/6PM GMT on 21 November. Gear up and get ready Guardians.

A message from Bungie adds: “Raids are the pinnacle activity in Destiny 2 and clans all across the globe are gearing up and training for their shot at the World First title and belt.

“Meanwhile, fans everywhere will be tuning in to watch and celebrate the first 6-person fireteam that completes the raid.”
