Destiny 2: Festival of the Lost Detailed, Includes New Haunted Forest Horde Mode

Plus, matchmaking.

There's merely a matter of days to wait until the Festival of the Lost kicks off for all Destiny 2 players. Beginning on October 16, you'll be able to delve into an entirely new horde mode, as well as a makeover for The Tower.

Over on Bungie.net, the full slate of content for the Festival of the Lost, which is basically the Halloween event, was revealed. The event revolves around Eva Levante having gone missing since the Red Legion invaded at the beginning of the game, but Amanda Holliday will be stepping in to fill her shoes. Amanda will be offering brand new Bounties and Triumphs, which you can use to earn the brand new Horror Story assault rifle, which you can see just below.

Elsewhere in the Halloween-themed event, there's a brand new horde mode. In the Haunted Forest mode, you can head in solo, duo, or co-op with a full Fireteam through matchmaking (thank Jesus).

Finally, there'll be brand new Ephemeral Engrams on offer every time you level up (provided you've hit the maximum level cap). While you can also purchase these new Ephemeral Engrams through Tess Everis in The Tower, you can check out some of the new rewards you can earn from these Engrams just below.

The Festival of the Lost event begins for all Destiny 2 players at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on Tuesday, October 16. It'll be sticking around until Tuesday, November 6, likely until the same time.
