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.” Not unlike Christmas, The Dawning is based on the idea of gift giving and games — however, this is focused more on celebrating the Light that fuels Guardians. And for those looking to take place in the festivities, the event opens to everyone early next week, on December 19, 2017. Of course, anyone who has followed the Destiny lore and meta since the original release will recognize The Dawning. Much like Destiny’s Festival of the Lost (aka Halloween), the event is a recurring yearly event to add some seasonal content for the fanbase.
