Get ready to head back into the Haunted Forest for Destiny 2‘s Halloween-themed event, the Festival of the Lost. The last holiday event before the launch of the Beyond Light expansion is seeing new cosmetics for players to snag and new versions of past Halloween-themed guns to earn.
Bungie put out a new trailer for the event, which is free to all players and doesn’t require buying into the Season of Arrivals season pass, to show off what you can expect. The primary thrust is a bunch of new spooky armor looks, emotes, sparrows, and ghost shells to get you into the Halloween spirit. You can check out the trailer below.
For the most part, it sounds like this year’s Festival of the Lost will be pretty similar to what we’ve seen in the past, with a few tweaks. The event usually has you doing some light trick-or-treating with various Destiny 2 characters while wearing papercraft Halloween masks. It also sends you into a version of Mercury’s Infinite Forest called the Haunted Forest, where your goal is to kill enemies as fast as you can to unlock more and more of the forest. The farther you get, the more bosses you’ll face, and the more rewards you can earn. Along the way, you’ll be hunted by an invincible, horror movie villain-like monster: a giant Hive knight.
