Well, it’s over. Rasputin destroyed the Almighty, and after a long wait when the missiles arched through the sky and finally crashed into the ship, the Almighty was smashed and crashed into the mountains just on the other side of the Tower. Some rubble fell near the Last City, but the crisis was avoided.
If you missed it, you can still see the remains of the Almighty in the distance from the back of the Tower, opposite where Zavala is located. The debris is still falling from the sky and the ship is still burning, but it is unclear if there could be more to the Almighty, perhaps visiting the crash site, in the future. Watch the embedded video to see what happened if you couldn’t be there in the game.
Visit Zavala to unlock a new dialogue about what happened.
You can also talk to Ana Bray on Mars to get another story, though her dialogue is in text form. Next to Zavala, on the left, is the small amount of damage that the Almighty managed to do to the Tower, in the form of a hole that was torn in a wall. Jump on it and you will be asked to “Inspect the crash site.” Doing so will earn you a commemorative emblem, “Seraph’s Wings,” for participating in the Season of Worthy and helping destroy the Almighty.
The Almighty crashed, but the Last City and the Tower were lost. Who knows if we will ever visit the site, or what we might find there.
Original Story Throughout the current season of Destiny 2 content, players have been completing Seraph Tower events in an effort to power up Rasputin, a powerful computer that once controlled the defenses of the entire solar system.
The plan was for Rasputin to use his weapons to shoot down the Almighty, a giant spaceship that is currently hurtling towards the colliding Last City. After months of preparation, it was finally time to bring down the Almighty – it happened around 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET today, June 6.
Bungie tweeted that we will finally see Rasputin deal with the Almighty today, just a few days before the release of Season 11 on June 9. However, the official tweet is sparse in detail; It doesn’t say exactly what will happen on the daily reset, or what players should expect.
However, it seems like it would be a good idea to be in the Tower at the time of the restart. According to Lars Bakken, the creative leader for Season of the Worthy, who responded to players on Twitter on Friday to encourage them to sign up.
You’ll want to be in the Tower at the daily reset time (10 a.m. Pacific time). I’m not sure what time zone it’s in, so plan accordingly.
It looks like we’ll be seeing a live event in Destiny 2 on its reboot today. Destiny is generally more about scenes and quests for events like this that doesn’t require you to log in at specific times; the idea that you need to be in the game at any given time sounds more like one of the live events that Fortnite and other live games have been known for.
In the game, the Almighty can be seen large in the sky of the Tower, blocking the sun.
He has spent time in the works, but Rasputin knocking out the Almighty is the culmination of this season’s content events. The ship first appeared in Destiny 2’s Vanilla Story Campaign – it was part of the Red Legion invasion of the solar system.
The ship is essentially a great weapon that the Cabal uses to destroy stars; If they cannot conquer a star system, they destroy it. In the story campaign, players deactivated the Almighty, but since then it has remained in orbit around the sun.
In the final season of Destiny 2, Season of Dawn, a trio of Red Legion pions attempted to use time travel to change the Red War outcome of the vanilla story campaign.
They failed, thanks to the efforts of the players, and as a last effort, the remaining forces of the Red Legion left the Almighty flying directly towards the Last City. The ship took a long time to appear, and meanwhile, players spent the Season of the Dignaces harnessing Rasputin’s abilities to destroy the ship before it crashed into the city.
From the point of view of history, it seems that it could have unforeseen consequences. Zavala, for his part, does not trust that Rasputin has the best interests of humanity in mind. And during the course of the season, we learned about some bad things that Rasputin did over the years. In “The Lie,” it was revealed that Rasputin was responsible for destroying the Iron Lords, a story told in Destiny 1. That suggests that Rasputin might be less predictable and reliable than some might have expected.
Although we know that Rasputin will finally deal with the Almighty today, we still don’t know where the story will go after that. Bungie is planning a revelation live stream on June 9 before the new season’s release, and that should tell us what to expect from both Season 11 and the upcoming start of Year 4 of Destiny 2, which will kick off in the fall.
