Bungie is almost ready to bring Lightfall‘s long-awaited Fireteam Finder feature to Destiny 2. But players can get in on the action a little early, as stress tests have begun rolling out starting today.
Players logging into Season 23 on November 30 were in for a treat. An in-game message informed Guardians they could participate in the day’s Fireteam Finder stress test, as Bungie previously noted in a November 22 Dev Insights post.
Today is the only day confirmed for stress testing, but it’s the first chance players have to try Fireteam Finder out. Players can jump into Fireteam Finder’s first stress test between 9 AM and 5 PM PST (12 PM to 8 PM EST) on November 30.
The experience is limited to Raid content, and, per the in-game notice, Bungie already anticipates the test could lead to some hiccups with game performance. That said, the pop-up also provided a method for players to report any issues they came across.
Will there be another stress test?
Right now, the only announced stress test is happening on November 30. That said, Bungie has already gone on to outline the path ahead. Following today’s stress test, a Beta period will begin in December.
Bungie hasn’t specified exact dates in December just yet, but that news will likely come after this first test concludes. Bungie did note in the Fireteam Finder Dev Insights post that the Beta’s start would depend on how the stress test goes.
Following the new year, Bungie estimates that Fireteam Finder will be ready for a full release in late January. This is, of course, if everything goes according to plan. And Bungie has promised to keep players updated on any timeline changes, should they develop.
