Players will receive free gifts during each week of The Dawning event, which can be collected from the Postmaster.
The Destiny event launched alongside a huge new patch, which is called The One About the Dawning.
Because of this, the "mid-February" release date shouldn't be taken as 100% confirmed just yet, as it could always shift.
There's also no patch notes for what's changing as of yet, but thankfully senior designer Josh Hamrick was on hand to share some of the "goals" Bungie has set for this upcoming update.
Destiny developer Bungie has promised even more updates and lots of new PS4 and Xbox One content in 2017. We have playtests of new content to share with each other."Thanks for playing our games, Guardians. Announced at the Playstation Experience, The Dawning is a returning festive event for Destiny.
As Bungie prepares to celebrate Christmas, the Destiny developer told fans that the game is never finished and that new content will be shown next year."We'll get back to business as usual once the eggnog leaves our blood," reads a Bungie blog post."Until we talk again, work will continue at Bungie. It includes Sparrow Racing, new exotic quests and the return of the Icebreaker.
Now arguments have flared again over matchmaking in Destiny, Senior Designer Derek Carroll was even drawn into the debate, trying to confirm how the connection-priority system is functioning."Destiny MM doesn't "favor" skill over connection.Bungie developers wanted to create a game they could consistently update, and they wanted to be able to respond to players' desires in real time.Sparrow racing is a good example of this adaptability: Players naturally began racing their floating speedsters around 's worlds, so Bungie took the hint and added races to the game itself."We actually took it and turned it into a six-player death race through enemy territory, but we draw a lot of inspiration from the players," Dague says.“Sandbox and Crucible designers have been investigating and updating the competitive ecosystem, and I am proud to say that we are getting very close.“Through experimentation and near daily battles to the (digital) death, we have begun to home in on a set of changes that we believe freshens things up.”This "goals" include: It also seems as though we could be in for another Destiny stream chat with the team, as Deej also revealed in the weekly blog post:"I told Josh to save his powder for a stream chat, complete with a math class and a shooting gallery.We’ll show you what we have in mind as part of a live fire exercise before Mid-February." However, all of this new intel could also coincide with another big reveal: The Destiny 2 Release Date.
