Destiny 2’s Festival of the Lost returns next week
Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2’s Halloween-themed Festival of the Lost event will get underway next week on October 29th.
“After taking a year off, Eva Levante has returned as the herald of the Festival of the Lost,” Bungie writes. “This holiday is a time for Guardians to don irreverent masks and celebrate the memories of those that are lost. As a growing threat looms ever-present, return to the Tower, grab some candy, and remind yourself what you’re fighting for.”
During the event, the Tower will be decorated with candles, lights, cobwebs, and more, and players will be able to acquire a Masquerader Helmet from Eva. The look of this helmet can be changed by purchasing Lost mask ornaments using Chocolate Strange Coins, which are acquired from bounties and activities.
Players can also pick up Mystery Grab Bags and the fully Masterworked 950 power Braytech Werewolf Legendary Auto Rifle in exchange for Candy.
The return of Festival of the Lost also means the return of the Haunted Forest. Players have 15 minutes to clear branches, defeat Terrors, and collect Candy and Chocolate Strange Coins.
Finally, the Eververse will be updated with a number of items, including skeleton armor ornaments, Jack-O’-Lantern masks, emotes, and the returning broom Sparrow.
