The Dawning could be the first Destiny event of 2016

Destiny event

As the greatest musician of all time Dewey Cox once warbled, the times they are a’changin’. Expansions used to be big money for games, guaranteed slices of extra entertainment that could stretch an experience out a few more hours and then some. But in a world where nothing is certain these days, it’s time to look at other avenues of earning some coin while keeping your fans engaged.

And Destiny is behind that lately. Less DLC, more events. We’ve had two such events already in the form of the Sparrow Racing League and the Festival of the Lost. And clearly it’s working, because it looks like a third experience is arriving later this month. Hell, you might have spotted it already. In a recent email from Bungie urging players to haul ass and get some free Strange Coins, Motes of Light and an emblem, the “Days of Dawning” was hinted at. Here’s said email snippet:

Adding fuel to the fire like a terrible new challenge in an episode of The Cube if I was in charge, the Destiny database was also updated with new items that referred to “The Dawning”. Here’s the list of items:

Bungie also previously mentioned that the first event of 2016 would be similar in size and scope to the Festival of the Lost, a Halloween-inspired holiday that had guardians jumping off of the tower for inside-joke giggles and rewards while wearing an Atheon mask. They’ve also alluded to the second event of the year being the biggest yet.

Of course, that all remains to be seen. Expect more details when the Bungie Update resumes from January 21. GOOD MORNING!

        Well Destiny divided it’s gamers with these events and the microtransactions that accompany them. I didn’t do a single sparrow race nor do I feel like partaking in this. Destiny has changed and is now only for the hardcore fan base that can still get a squad up. The rest are better of playing something else

          I joined Destiny in December. Got a Titan to lvl 40, got some gear on him. I then worked out I needed to do nightfalls and raids….. Oh well back to Fallout until I can borrow a copy of Witcher from a mate.

            They really need to cater to single player people in the sequel somehow. Single player Raids would be cool. Even if it means more grinding for loot I’d be happy because at least one wouldn’t miss out unlike those that can get a squad together

            I found Destiny to punish me because I didn’t have friends to play with. With the fact that there is no internal group finder, getting any group was difficult. Also when you are running missions, the whole platformed thing is so much easier in a group as you don’t have to start all the way from the beginning.
