Destiny 2's Festival of the Lost Start Date Announced


We knew that the Festival of the Lost would be would be making its debut in Destiny 2 this year, but now we know when. The festival to mark Halloween will kick off on October 16, Bungie has revealed today.

Over on, the dev team outlined the new changes to Destiny 2 coming in the month of October, one of which is the start of the Festival of the Lost. "It includes a costume party, and you’re all invited. It ends with a quest to solve a murder," reads the official description.

Not much to go on right now for the return of the Halloween festival in Destiny 2, but we'll report further details as they're announced. You might recall that Bungie skipped the Festival of the Lost last year for Destiny 2, with The Dawning event taking its place, but this year the Halloween event is back.

Elsewhere in the announcement post from Bungie, the developer revealed that The Last Wish Raid, which only launched last month as part of the Forsaken DLC expansion, won't be getting a Prestige difficulty setting. For those unfamiliar, the Prestige difficulty option is higher than the standard difficulty, bumping the challenge up significantly, but also rewarding better gear. This is a slight surprise, considering that Bungie introduced the Prestige option for Destiny 2's Leviathan, the game's only other full Raid, last year.

Speaking of the Forsaken expansion, we've got plenty of additional coverage of the DLC pack here at USgamer, including how Destiny 2: Forsaken did Cayde-6 wrong.
