It seems like Destiny players will see the return of the game’s “Crimson Days” event, a celebration of love and Valentine’s Day.
In a recent datamine of the PC version, Reddit user Ginsor found files containing various Crimson Days-themed lines:
“Guardians honor the unbreakable bonds they forge on and off the battlefield by competing in the Crucible’s Crimson Days festival. First, follow the rose petals in the Tower to Tess Everis’-she has something for you.”
“Speak to Tess Everis to claim your free Crimson Days Engram.”
“Speak to Shaxx in the Tower to learn more about his love for Crimson Days.”
“As boisterous as ever, Shaxx speaks warmly (and loudly) of Crimson Days’-and of his challenge to Guardians who choose to celebrate with him in the Crucible.”
“Shaxx congratulates you and your Crimson Bond on battles hard-fought and victories hard-won during Crimson Days’-and offers a handsome reward with his inspiring words.”
