Destiny 2 is about to enter its next big chapter with the release of the Beyond Light expansion on Tuesday, November 10, and it’s made some big story moves in the last season. One more thing is on the way before servers go offline on November 9 to make way for the expansion: another in-game live event.
Bungie has been cagey about the event but has suggested that it’ll be pretty small-scale. A patch is coming to the game at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET, which you’ll need to download before the event starts. Bungie says you should be in the game before 6:50 PM PT / 9:50 PM ET to take part in the live event.
Re: What time should I sign in for the end of season event?
This is a small event, a moment for you to spend some time with friends as the season comes to a close.
Key times in the Player Support Report last week. Download your patch at 4PM, jump in before 6:50 PM Pacific. pic.twitter.com/NggW9mtHf8

The story of the Season of Arrivals has seen the in-game run-up to several Destiny 2 locations being “vaulted,” or indefinitely removed from the game. Titan, Io, Mercury, Mars, and the Leviathan are all being removed in Beyond Light, and those destinations have seen story beats throughout the season as an explanation for that happening, in which you’ve tried to help prepare to evacuate those planets. It seems like the live event might be a capper on that story ahead of the launch of Beyond Light and its big changes to Destiny 2.
It’s also worth noting that Destiny 2 servers go offline at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET Monday night for maintenance ahead of Beyond Light. They’re expected to go live with the new expansion at noon PT / 3 PM ET on Tuesday.
