Look out for some fancy new armour decorations in the next fortnight (Pic: Bungie)
In the first seasonal event since February's Crimson Doubles, Bungie has launched a new event called The Revelry for all Destiny 2 players.
That means you don't need the Annual Pass to take part – and take part you should, with some exclusive items on offer.
At the time of writing, the event should be live!
Beginning at today's 6 pm Weekly Reset and running until the same time on 6th May, we've gathered everything we know about this exciting new event so far.
As is often the case, The Revelry repurposes some of Destiny 2's content – in this case, it's the Infinite Forest location on Mercury.
In a similar way to The Festival Of The Lost's "Haunted Forest" activity, The Verdant Forest forms the centrepiece of The Revelry.
You and your squad of Guardians will work your way through the procedurally-generated area, hunting bosses and completing events to earn a reward called Reveler's Essence.
This essence can be used to fill a Reveler's Tonic item which will offer a variety of gameplay bonuses to Guardians such as reduced cooldowns on abilities – be prepared to throw plenty of grenades.
If that wasn't enough, you can improve these effects by equipping snazzy new armour sets. There are two to collect for each class – Inaugural Revelry or Vernal Growth.
As an added incentive, these effects can be felt throughout all modes during the event – including PVE, PVP, and Gambit activities.
Perhaps most excitingly for those Guardians looking to earn something special, Reveler's Essence can also be swapped for a variety of rewards back at the Tower.
Some are consumables, such as enhancement cores (arguably Destiny 2's most finite resource) – while others are more permanent, like Ornaments to adorn the new armour on offer.
For our money, you'll be best off saving it for the brand new Exotic weapon "Arbalest". It's the first fusion rifle that deals Kinetic damage in the series' almost five-year history.
Bungie notes that it "does extra damage against enemy shields" – so it could be just the thing for melting Primevals in Gambit.
That isn't all – during the event, you'll earn double the amount of Bright Engrams as well as new Revelry engrams which will fRead More – Source
