Destiny 2‘s latest expansion, The Witch Queen, is set to get its grand reveal at Wednesday’s Destiny 2 Showcase, a deep dive event expanding on the mythos of the game and what players can expect following those spooky, witch-y teases released this month.

Outside of early teaser videos and a mysterious voice talking about the objectivity of truth, we really don’t know much about what Destiny 2 has in store — so it’s lucky we won’t have to wait long to know more.

Here’s everything you should know about the Destiny 2 showcase, including how you can tune in from Australia.

What time does the Destiny 2 Showcase start in Australia?

So we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is the Destiny 2 Showcase should reveal all about Destiny 2‘s exciting new quest line and spooky additions to the franchise.

The bad news is you’ll have to wake up at 2:00am AEST on Wednesday, August 25 to watch it.

If you want to tune in for the earlier pre-show, you’ll have to wake up even earlier for 1:00am AEST.

Here’s how the timing for the showcase works out in Australia:

  • Perth — 12:00am AWST (Pre-show at 11:00am AWST)
  • Adelaide, Darwin — 1:30am ACST (Pre-show at 12:30am ACST)
  • Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart — 2:00am AEST (Pre-show at 1:00am AEST)
