The next Destiny 2 Weekly Reset will unlock some more intriguing content for Guardians on PS4 and Xbox One.
Bungie has confirmed that following the usual changes to game activities, a new event will be launched that will unlock the Black Armory’s final forge.
This is called Niobe Labs and is scheduled to go live on Tuesday, January 8.
And that means fans don’t have to wait long before the latest content is released by Bungie.
The development team will be wiping clean player progress on some of the game’s most rewarding activities very soon.
This will affect all players on PS4, Xbox One and PC and will start at around 6pm in the UK.
For players in the United States, it means a much earlier reset time of 10am PST and 1pm EST.
And for Guardians who are currently actively playing through the latest Destiny 2 content, more will soon be unlocked.
Bungie has revealed that Niobe Labs will not function like a dungeon and will be more event-like than past releases.
“The Izanami Forge has been discovered in the wreckage of the Exodus Black. New adventures await, and more slick weaponry is available for those who can repair and reignite the ancient forge,” a message from Bungie explains.
“We have more in store for you after the New Year. The community is currently solving puzzles and uncovering the secrets of the forges and the families who created them.
“Niobe Labs is set to go live on January 8. It’s not a dungeon, but an event that will ultimately unlock the final forge. Good luck!”
The Black Armory is part of the Annual Pass and will see a new Exotic Quest drop on January 29, called The Draw.
The expansion has been sending Guardians on a series of quests to rediscover, reactivate, and reclaim four lost forges—and the weapons they offer as a reward.
The Season of the Forge runs until February, with some seasonal activities disappearing (like the Dawning and Crimson Days), but others (like the Black Armory forges and raids) will remain active after their initial introduction, building on the foundation of activities you can experience each week.
It’s expected that the Niobe Labs event will begin after the weekly reset, which should occur at around 6pm in the UK.
DESTINY WEEKLY RESET
As usual, the weekly reset will affect various activities in the game, such as:
Progress and rewards connected to Destination Flashpoints, Raid Challenges, Raid Checkpoints, Nightfall Strike, Weekly Clan Engrams, Weekly Clan XP Caps, Eververse Bright Dust and Prismatic Matrix Selections.
There will also be hard resets made to the Spider’s Wanted Bounty line-up, and Xur will disappear again until Friday.
So as a recap, the official Destiny 2 weekly reset affects Nightfall Strikes and the ongoing Raid, and also acts as the countdown to complete these tasks.
If you complete them before the reset, you will have to wait until the following Tuesday to start them again and collect new rewards.
This is also when a lot of the game’s milestones get refreshed, which means weekly challenges, destination Flashpoints, call to arms, clan XP and clan XP rewards.
