Destiny 2's winter event, The Dawning, begins next week

Still recovering from a fan-fueled bruising following the launch of Destiny 2's Curse of Osiris DLC, the MMO FPS is welcoming the yearly Christmas event dubbed "The Dawning". Their winter-themed festivities brings with it new (and improved, thanks to a recent overhaul) gear, new events, and a little holiday fun on the side!

As for when the Dawning event will draw to a close, the event is now due to end on January 9, giving you right around four weeks in total to obtain all the new items in the event (which we'll get onto further down).

Throughout "The Dawning" weekly engram drops will also take place with themed exotic chips, ghosts, emotes and sparrows. You can click through the images in the gallery above to get a closer look at how Destiny 2 will look next week when The Dawning begins.

This year, The Dawning will run from December 19 to January 9.

Guardians aren't just arming themselves with weapons. Mayhem, which was added to the original Destiny's PvP mode in 2015, cranks up the recharge rates of grenade, melee and super abilities, turning Crucible into a much more frantic, frenzied affair. There'll be snowball piles all over the Tower and Farm too, while in Strikes you'll also be able to blast enemies with snowballs to stun them and inflict "big damage". Completing these events and specific milestones can earn Dawning engrams with new seasonal gear, though Tess at the Eververse vendor will be selling specific pieces during the entire event.

Keep your blood warm and your heart pumping in the Crucible.

So far, we only know of a few new items coming to Destiny 2 alongside the Dawning event in late December. Point values are cranked up enough to melt the ice. You can spend your Bright Dust there on Dawning items. Finally, you can acquire a Dawning Gift Schematic which you can use to craft a gift that you can then send to a friend. You can participate in the season of giving every day of the event.
