When Does Destiny 2 Lightfall Root of Nightmares Come Out?

The release date of the Destiny 2 Lightfall raid, called Root of Nightmares, is March 10th, and it’s coming out at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM GMT / 6 PM CET. That translates to 2 AM on March 11th in Japan and 4 AM Canberra time in Australia. This comes directly from the official Destiny Twitter account, so the information is legit. Contest mode will remain enabled for the first forty-eight hours after the raid launches. With all of that said, previous experience has taught us all that the actual release might not be exactly on the dot; the developers usually have to engage in some last-minute tinkering. That doesn’t delay the launch by too long, so be on your mark at the exact time. Just in case.

So, that’s the release date and time of the Destiny 2 Lightfall Root of Nightmares raid. At the time of writing, that’s pretty much everything we know about it. The text of the tweet says: “Ferried from an unknown time and place, a haunting presence has been detected. We must now confront the ancient threat growing at our doorstep.” That can honestly mean any number of things, so I am going to leave the speculation to people more knowledgeable of the lore than I. All I know is that it sounds really intimidating and creepy. Which, of course, doesn’t necessarily mean it actually will be. I hope it will be; having an activity that puts players through the horror wringer would be entertaining to watch.
