The Leviathan Raid Prestige Mode will be delayed, according to an announcement from Bungie. The new mode will launch one week later than intended. This is due to an exploit that has been discovered, so Bungie doesn’t want players to earn World First unfairly.
Bungie has released a statement, saying that the Leviathan Raid Prestige Mode won’t launch today, as it was supposed to. Apparently, there seems to be some kind of exploit, which the devs have to patch up. For that reason, they’re moving the launch of the Prestige Mode by one week. The new release date and time is Wednesday, October 18th, at 10 AM Pacific Time / 1 PM Eastern Time / 7 PM Central European Time. So, if you’ve been grinding for the new mode, you’ll have some extra time for it. If, on the other hand, you’re all good to go, well, stay patient for a bit longer.
The announcement was posted on the official Bungie forum. Here it is, in its full: “An exploit has been discovered in the Leviathan Raid that causes the encounters to be stripped of their intended challenge. To allow time to fix this issue, we are delaying the start of the Prestige Raid until next week. It’s important to us that the team who earns World First status doesn’t have their legacy tarnished by doubt, skepticism, or uncertainty.” A little theatrical there, Bungie, but at least your heart is in the right place this time.
As for what Bungie has in store for the Prestige mode of the Leviathan Raid, we’ll have to wait and see. The only bits they gave out is that hey’ll introduce minimal mechanical changes. Despite that, they “do not expect everyone to be successful in completing this activity.” So, Guardians, get ready to be truly tested!
