Destiny 2 Forsaken Breakthrough Crucible mode now live


Sick of Gambit?

Update: Breakthrough is now live.

Original story: Destiny 2 Forsaken will introduce a new Crucible mode called Breakthrough later this week.

Bungie used a recent update to detail how the mode works.

“At the beginning of each round, players will fight to capture a central zone. Once the zone is captured, your team will deploy the Breaker. As players work to deploy the Breaker, the zone can be contested, resulting in an epic tug-of-war between the two teams. Once the Breaker is captured, it will be used to assault and hack the enemy team’s Vault.

“If you hack the enemy team’s Vault, you win the round. If you fail to hack the enemy team’s Vault within the round time limit, you lose. If you are in the process of hacking the enemy team’s Vault when time runs out, you will enter Sudden Death until you either hack the Vault, or the enemy removes all your progress.”

The first team to win three rounds wins the match.

Breakthrough goes live inside Private Matches from 25 September and will be added to the game’s Competitive playlist on 2 October. As part of the release, Bungie will also add new maps specifically for Breakthrough, including Equinox, Firebase Echo, The Citadel, Convergence and the PS4-exclusive Gambler’s Ruin.

Destiny 2 is available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
