Additionally, there are new Dawning engrams that you can earn each week by completing milestones in Crucible and Strikes. This is the same day that the Destiny 2 weekly reset occurs, so it makes sense that the Dawning event will begin right around 9am PST/12 pm EST, when the reset takes place.

Bungie announced the event today on the company's official site, where the Destiny 2 dev team laid out what players can expect.

On one week or another during the three-week event, you'll find every Dawning-themed exotic (ship, ghost, sparrow, emote) and every Dawning-themed legendary armor piece on her shelves.

Guardians are encouraged to enjoy the changing weather by participating in snowball fights, a feature that was often requested during last year's event.

The multiplayer playlist Mayhem is coming back from the original Destiny as well.

The Dawning event is arriving just in time for the Holiday season, as the event is set to begin on December 19.

As for when the Dawning event will draw to a close, the event is now due to end on January 9, giving you right around four weeks in total to obtain all the new items in the event (which we'll get onto further down).

Elsewhere, Tess's inventory will be updated to accommodate new Dawning-themed items, which you can snap up by parting with Bright Dust. These snowball fights will also show up in Strikes, allowing you to stun enemies with them for massive damage presumably with the idea you've been sticking rocks or unwanted engrams in there.

Pick up a Dawning Gift Schematic from the Bazaar. Players will need to travel around the solar system to complete a gift, which they can then exchange with vendors and other NPC's for a gift of their own. Those who give a gift will receive one in turn.

Destiny 2 will be getting a brand new Holiday event to round out 2017, titled The Dawning, including new Destiny 2 weapons and armor items, as well as new Dawning Engram items.

You can see what we got in The Dawning in previous years below - how much will return in a brnad new game? "Essentially, our goals are to continue adding new challenges to Destiny, and to keep old challenges relevant without taking them away from anyone".
