Bungie confirmed today that good little Guardians all over the world will get to enjoy the many gifts of The Dawning starting on Tuesday, December 19. Mayhem, the popular gameplay mode that reduces the cooldown time on abilities, is also returning, and players will be able to complete various milestones toward the new Dawning engrams.
For those interested in joining in on the event, it is only available for a limited time: specifically from December 19 to January 9. This year’s Dawning comes with the regulars you might expect from previous years, which includes new locale settings, cosmetic items and game modes. This is the same day that the Destiny 2 weekly reset occurs, so it makes sense that the Dawning event will begin right around 9am PST/12 pm EST, when the reset takes place.
As you can see, this years new armor sets are just unreal. Let us know what you feel about The Dawning returning to Destiny on Facebook, Twitter, or the Comments section below.

“Engage in Crucible Mayhem or become legend in Strikes and you’ll be rewarded”.
Destiny: Fall of Osiris will detail his back story, putting to the page how Osiris went “from hero to traitor”. Hitting enemies with snowballs will stun them and deal damage.
Elsewhere, Tess’s inventory will be updated to accommodate new Dawning-themed items, which you can snap up by parting with Bright Dust. Get in the giving mood with new consumables that give rewards to everyone you’re playing with. Every week, complete a milestone for a Dawning engram. And because it is better to give than to receive, Dawning Gift Schematics will be available from the Bazaar. Venture to other worlds and craft a unique gift for the vendors and agents you find in the Tower and beyond. Those who give a gift will receive one in turn.
