Destiny 2's traditional holiday event is now live across all platforms. The event brought back the Mayhem matches, new decorations and fresh items. The Dawning will also let you craft gifts for other players.
Destiny 2 is still a thing, and whether you love it or hate it, it has a new holiday event. The Dawning is now live on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The most-frequented spots in the entire game have been decked out with season appropriate embellishments.
Also, you'll want to clean out your current inventory as you'll be needing some space to store the new event items. The Tower and Farm social spaces have been hit by this event the hardest. There are decorations and snow scattered all over the place.
The rest of the game didn't manage to escape the horrible weather, so most of it is covered with snow as well. Thanks to the happy circumstance, you can now have snowball fights in the social spaces as well as on Strikes.
Mayhem is also back. The Crucible mode that inherited the "too much" gene is back and once again, your Super meter will replenish faster than you can say "Can I have some more Eggnog, please?"
The faster rate of Super meter recharge means faster Mayhem matches so you might want to send that Eggnog my way. Keep your wits about you, people, Mayhem matches are a scary place.
In keeping with the tradition, several new Milestones will be added. You can complete these by either finishing the Mayhem matches or running Strikes. The reward for finishing a Milestone is a Dawning engram. These will reset each week.
If spending money instead of playing the game is more your thing, this year's Dawning items will be waiting for you in the Eververse Trading Company. Bight Dust will be used to purchase the desired items. Bight Dust can be bought by using real money or by dismantling Legendary items.
Be patient. We're approaching the end. 'Tis the season to give, and with that in mind, The Dawning will let you craft items to give to your fellow players. Boosts that grant your entire fireteam rewards when you get a drop will also be available.
The Dawning is going to end on 09 January.
