Destiny 2 adds Legenadry Astral Alignments

The big news for this week in Destiny 2 has to be the new Legendary difficulty for Astral Alignments. The Legendary difficulty will require players to have a minimum power level of 1320. Additionally, it will have new weekly rotating modifiers like Denial, Epitaph and Empath. Plus, it will always have modifiers like Overload or Unstoppable Champions, Equipment Locked and Match Game. Players will need to have a proper Fireteam, and if they die they will be sent back to the Orbit. So, players need to make sure that they don’t die at all during Astral Alignment.

This week Trials Labs also returns with a new playlist in Freelance. With this, players can now enter solo with no pre-made Fireteams. The 3v3 game mode will provide a new flavor for Guardians to taste with unknown teammates in a Fireteam. This should make the fight for going Flawless much more interesting than any other Trials of Osiris modes.
