With Christmas around the corner, Bungie is making sure Destiny 2’s Guardians will be taking part in the festivities by announcing the Destiny 2 The Dawning date! There’s going to be snowball fights, special Crucible events and gifts!
Starting this December 19, and ending on January 9, 2018, the full list of activities people can expect from this event is listed below.
Snowball Fights Guardians aren’t just arming themselves with weapons. There are snowball piles everywhere you look. In the Tower and at the Farm, you can tag your friends for bragging rights. In Strikes, you can blast an enemy with a snowball to stun them and deal big damage. Stay frosty out there.
Mayhem in the Cold Keep your blood warm and your heart pumping in the Crucible. Mayhem is back, so your abilities recharge faster. Point values are cranked up enough to melt the ice. It’s anarchy—and it’s awesome.
Milestones of Winter Engage in Crucible Mayhem or become legend in Strikes and you’ll be rewarded. Every week, complete a milestone for a Dawning engram. Get in the giving mood with new consumables that give rewards to everyone you’re playing with. If there’s a specific Dawning item that you have your heart set on, Tess will refresh her inventory each week, enabling you to use your Bright Dust reserves for your holiday shopping. On one week or another during the three-week event, you’ll find every Dawning-themed exotic (ship, ghost, sparrow, emote) and every Dawning-themed legendary armor piece on her shelves.
Gifting and Receiving Pick up a Dawning Gift Schematic from the Bazaar. Venture to other worlds and craft a unique gift for the vendors and agents you find in the Tower and beyond. Then, give the lucky recipient their gift and receive a gift in return. You can participate in the season of giving every day of the event.
Players won’t miss the event seeing as the entire place will be decked with snow and decorations, as you can see in the image above.
In other Destiny 2 news, Bungie has announced that a new webcomic will also be launching next week, and will dive into the lore of Osiris. Don’t forget, Xur will be appearing later to sell his wares, but it won’t be in Mercury.
