How to Play 'Destiny 2' Proving Grounds Strike
This new strike will be available for season pass holders on March 23 and will enter the Nightfall the Ordeal, free for all players, the following week reset on March 30.
The Proving Grounds Strike appears to be the next step in the story, with the Guardians facing off against Caiatl's chosen Champion. How exactly it all goes down remains to be seen, but the "Destiny 2" season pass holders will get the first chance to know how the story will progress.
What to Expect from the Proving Grounds Strike in "Destiny 2"?
According to Forbes, Proving Grounds Strike is a significant addition to "Destiny 2" as a completely new strike. After all, it could be the turning point of the Caiatl Storyline, where players will take on their champion to try and make the Cabal bend to the player's will.
The publication predicts that players will run the strike this coming week as part of the Battleground storyline and then will get a cutscene from Empress Caiatl, which may mark the beginning of an actual alliance with her.
The Gamer reported that while players and fans alike may not know the story behind the new strike, they did see a cutscene featuring Zavala, Crow, and Caiatl in the Season of the Chosen trailer from "Destiny 2." In the cutscene, Caiatl threatens that she will sharpen her gilded knife and see them both on the battlefield. This cutscene has not been released in the game yet, but players may have the chance to see that moment in the storyline of "Destiny 2" as it launches the Proving Grounds Strike.
