[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Bungie confirmed that the raid has been completed. Destiny clan Primeguard completed Vault of Glass after 10 hours and 40 minutes.
At the time of going to press, Primeguard is now attempting to finish Vault of Glass on Hard mode, shown in the video above.
The original story is below.
The first six-player Raid has gone live Destiny, with expert players in a race to be the first in the world to finish the challenge.
The requirements for playing are high, as those at anything less than level 26 will not be permitted entry. It also requires six players to form a group and join the game together at the same time (there is no matchmaking).
Developer Bungie says the Raid challenge, called Vault of Glass, is "the most elaborate mission ever created by us".
If you won't be Level 26 to start the Raid, you can see who might complete it first (or not at all) on Twitch. http://t.co/Sd9LP6rJ3s— Bungie (@Bungie) September 16, 2014
Numerous Twitch streams have gone live, showing advanced players trying to accomplish the feat. The most watched at the time of writing is StreamerHouse, which can be seen in the video above.
The studio says The Vault Glass "is a mystery as much as it is a challenge--a puzzle and a gauntlet. The race to see who can be first to solve it, with their cunning and their skill, is about to begin."
"Not everyone will qualify," Bungie wrote on its website, "and among those who do, not everyone will succeed."
The studio added: "It’s very likely that you will not finish the Raid in one sitting. Your Fireteam leader is crucial to your eventual potential success. Your progress will be saved for one week. To resume your mission where you left off, you’ll need to follow the same Fireteam leader back into battle."
