But wait! Maybe you’re like me and keep playing both Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC. We thought about it and worked with Xbox to get started too Fate 2 with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Not only will this give you all of the amazing social features that Xbox Live Gold has, but thanks too Fate 2‘s cross-save functionality means that you can continue the progress of your Guardian no matter which platform you log on to.
A free festival for everyone
The timing for the Xbox Game Pass update couldn’t be better. The leaves are changing color and there is a chill in the approaching winter air that makes playing video games with a hot cocoa close by a little more comfortable.
In the world of Fate 2, this time of year also marks the beginning of the Festival of the Lost. A free event where the citizens of the Last City celebrate the lives of those who have lost them. Imagine a combination of Day of the Dead and Halloween and you will get really close to the atmosphere.
Oh yes, dinosaurs too. Did I mention there are dinosaurs this year? There are dinosaurs this year.
In addition to the prehistoric rock stars, there’s a new match-made activity called Haunted Sectors, new cosmetics to collect, a new pulse rifle, and the introduction of a new lore-filled feature called the Book of the Forgotten. Sounds like your cup
tea Cocoa? Cool. Let’s get scary.
New in 2021, Haunted Sectors is a match-made activity for three players that challenges Guardians to defy three different terrifying stories. Perhaps your fireteam will face headless creatures on the moon, or perhaps you will travel to Nessus, where a guardian is on the run and his ghost is being hunted. In the third Haunted Sector, an Exo and Vex Mind have merged and, much like Frankenstein’s monster, they have become something new and very … alive. Survive any scary scenario and it’s not just candy that will sweeten your success.
It pays to be brave
This year, new cosmetics, papercraft masks, dinosaur armor ornaments, and (with our dinosaur obsession rampant) even a new dino-themed weapon are being introduced. Harness power unseen since the Mesozoic era with the new Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle. Deliver miniature extinction events with each press of the shutter button as you zoom around on the new Exotic Sparrow.
No Festival of the Lost would be complete without the right costumes and this year is no exception. Everyone’s favorite eye-catching papercraft masks are back! If you missed any of your favorites from previous years, there is a chance to collect it along with some cool new ones.
Usually you can hardly think of anything more suitable for such an event than masks. But I think with the help of our community we made it …
At the beginning of the year we were at a crossroads. An impossible choice with two correct answers … at least we thought. We had to choose between two different armor ornaments to add to the game, and even within the studio there was no agreement in sight. So we asked the community to save the day by picking one for us.
The brawl was fierce and the social media discussion was spirited. But in the end it was the triumphant roar of #TeamDino that echoed through the streets of Last City.
We are happy to announce that the # TeamDino ornaments are now available in the Eververse store. Good game and well played to everyone who took part in the vote. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Book of the Forgotten
A new lore-focused feature of the Festival of the Lost makes its debut this year. The new book of the forgotten is in the tower and is unfortunately incomplete. This is where you come in. Collect the lost pages, unlock new stories and immortalize the Festival of the Lost 2021 with a completed tome.
Save the universe your way
Master the mouse and keyboard on your battle station or make yourself comfortable on the couch with your Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S. However you play, Xbox Game Pass gives you the choice and Bungie’s Cross Play makes sure all of your friends are an invitation away, no matter which platform you choose.
So come with me to spice everything up with pumpkin, buy bags of disposable candy that we don’t want to hand out, and find the brightest room in the house to run a haunted sector. The Festival of the Lost begins today.
See you in the starry sky, watchman.
