Destiny 2: Crimson Days Event Detailed, arriving February 13th
Bungie details the upcoming Valentine's Crimson Days Event starting on February 13th, with new rewards and a returning favourite map for the Crucible.
Next week lovers around the world will celebrate that special day as Valentine's Day comes to Destiny 2. The upcoming Crimson Days event will be a special time that runs from February 13-20th and brings back a fan favourite map with the return of "The Burning Shrine" - a map that was previously in the original Destiny. This new take on the classic map will be rethemed around the Vex and the alternate future that was seen in the Curse of Osiris DLC.
As it's a time for couples, you will be able to participate in 2v2 playlists at the Crucible to fight alongside your loved one. Sticking close to one another during the match will result in your abilities recharging faster. Should you separate then the enemy will be shown a path to your location. No partner? No fear! Bungie will be sure to matchmake you up with another lonely soul during the event.
Crimson Day Event Rewards
Players seeking rewards should compete in the Crucible Playlist, as this will be the best play to get the new Crimson Engrams (they can still be found elsewhere while playing). Destiny 2 will also make sure that you don't receive any item from the event that you already own, thanks to the new duplicate item prevention system. This applies to items found in game or bought from the vendor.
During the Crimson Days Event, all players will get an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram when they level up. Crimson Engrams will be rewarded via gameplay and will not be capped during the Event. Guardians must be at least level 25 (if they own the Curse of Osiris expansion) or level 20 if they do not own the expansion to qualify.
Here's a list of the tasks you'll need to do in order to unlock the new rewards during the Crimson Days Event:
- Complete the milestone “Welcome to Crimson Days” by finishing five Crimson Days matches and visiting Lord Shaxx in the Tower to earn the Fire of the Crimson Days Emblem and the Tirastrella Ghost Shell.
- Complete matches in the Crimson Days Crucible playlist for a chance to earn the Undeterred Exotic Sparrow.
- Complete either the Leviathan Raid or the Raid Lair: Eater of Worlds to claim the Dieselpunk Exotic Ornament for Wardcliff Coil from the final chest.
- Complete the Nightfall Strike during the Crimson Days event to earn the Flaunting Dance Emote.
You will be able to earn Crimson Engrams from gameplay, but if you are looking for another way to purchase specific items you can always stop by your friendly eververse trader Tess who will offer a selection of items in exchange for Bright Dust. Any reward from a Crimson Engram can also be turned into Bright Dust by dismantling it.
Crimson Days kicks off on February 13th, and will run until February 20th at 9am PST (5pm GMT / 6pm CET).
