Players would enter the Prison as a raid-like activity, participating in wave-based rounds centered on specific enemy types before finishing off the final round and getting pinnacle gear. Not only did it have public matchmaking, but Gambit only featured one enemy type per game and also included purposefully intrusive PvP elements with invasions. Prison of Elders would also be another more accessible avenue for players to get access to Pinnacle loot outside of raids if that part of its identity went unchanged. It didn't have a crazy runtime like King's Fall did, but still had enough wiggle room for plenty of variety. Considering Season of the Worthy didn't really bring any SIVA-related content other than Eververse items, it'd be fun to bring back one of SIVA's worst creations for guardians to destroy again, and this vault makes it a real possibility.
Vault of Glass will get a facelift for Destiny 2, not a rework
Bungie Reveals New Changes To Destiny 2's Vault Of Glass World First Race
A weekly update from Destiny developers Bungie has revealed that the studio is considering adding matchmaking to their end-game raids. Destiny's raids are the most challenging parts of the hit game, requiring six players level 26 or above to team up for a lengthy test of endurance. As it stands the game's only raid so far, Vault of Glass, requires six players who know each other — rather than matching up strangers through the matchmaking system used in other areas of the game. Asked about raid matchmaking in their weekly update Bungie said: "The best I can do to answer your question is to let you know that you've been heard. We're having conversations about how Matchmaking might support the more challenging activities in Destiny. The gist of their answer suggests concerns that if they opened up raids to matchmaking that a group of strangers wouldn't, in most instances, be able work together effectively enough to complete the tough-as-nails mission.
Bungie addresses major Destiny 2 player complaints with massive changes on the horizon
I should have listened. Bungie was right. When Bungie said there would be no matchmaking in Vault of Glass there was a mini-uproar.
Bungie had previously announced new expansions for Destiny 2 , including The Witch Queen that was scheduled to release later this year. In a blog post , the developer has revealed that The Witch Queen expansion has been delayed to The raid will launch with both a Contest mode as well as a World First race in the first 24 hours. However, the World First race will be a bit different. Teams that are looking to claim the title will need to complete the raid alongside a curated list of challenging Triumphs.
