It’s time to add another layer of competition to your activities in Destiny 2 as next week marks the return of the Guardian Games. If you’re tired of competing directly against your fellow Guardians in competitive modes like Trials or Gambit, you can now once again choose a side and perform all manner of activities in pursuit of glory for your class.
Beginning on April 20th, Guardians will pledge to one of their characters’ classes and compete to test their bravery, skill, and resolve. New challenges will award laurels from Eva Levante as the Guardians complete Contender Cards and Triumphs during the Guardian Games. Each week is a new chance to be recognized as the top class.
Several exciting rewards will be up for grabs, including last year’s Heir Apparent, an exotic sparrow, legendary class items, two emblems, and two shaders. Eververse will have a new Guardian Games Universal Ornament Set with glowing class items, a new weapon ornament for Heir Apparent, sporting exotic emotes, and more on offer.
For those that don’t mind shelling out some real-world currency, Bungie will allow those Guardians who complete the Guardian Games’ opening quest to purchase a Guardian Games track jacket. If this is anywhere near as comfortable as the Prophecy Dungeon hoodie, I can’t wait to get out my credit card.
Guardian Games begin on April 20th and culminate in the Closing Ceremonies between May 7 – 9. For more news, guides, and advice on how to beat your friends, visit our Destiny 2 archives.
