Fate 2 Festival of the Lost is an annual in-game Halloween event where players can wear masks, participate in unique event activities, and earn candy to unlock spooky cosmetics. In recent years, the main activity of the Festival of the Lost has been the Haunted Forest, a creepy dark variant of the Vex-based Infinite Forest from Year 1 Curse of Osiris Extension. Players have been running the Haunted Forest every year since 2018, but at the Festival of the Lost 2021, players will instead explore the Haunted Lost Sectors, a pretty dramatic change that should be worth returning for the event.
The headline piece of the Festival of the Lost 2021 is the dinosaur-themed armor ornaments chosen by the community earlier this year. Teeth, claws and horns won a showdown between classic movie monsters and dinosaurs. Titans receive a wild-looking T-Rex set. Warlocks rock the three-horned triceratops. And hunters become clever velociraptors. These ornaments can be bought in the Everversum shop for silver or gloss dust.
The dinosaur theme continues with the Jurassic Green pulse rifle, which longtime gamers will recognize as the old Lincoln Green pulse rifle, now reissued and covered in dinosaur scales. The Jurassic Green pulse rifle can be unlocked by earning candy to get Eva Levante’s new weapon. Players earn candy by playing the new Haunted Sectors activity, which you can start from the tower’s map menu.
The haunted sectors lead guards through “three new terror stories”:
- An Exo and a Vex Mind have merged into something … new
- A guardian on Nessus is hunted for his ghost
- Headless creatures roam the dark abysses of the moon
A brand new lore book called Book of the Forgotten appears to feature some of the Guardian’s horror stories, “filled with memorable characters and heroic deeds”. Pages can be earned by participating in the Festival of the Lost, especially through the haunted sectors.
Players can also get their hands on a number of other unique cosmetics – like the new spider sparrow, the ghostly green ghost clam, and the Savathun moth-themed ship – either through the Everversum shop or by playing the event. There is also a unique emblem from Bungie Rewards when you attend the Festival of the Lost.
Because the season of the lost is the longest determination Season still (essentially double the previous three month seasons) due to the delay in The witch queenBrushing up on these seasonal events is a big part of players’ interest during the long wait for the next big expansion.
Fate 2 The Festival of the Lost begins today and lasts for three weeks, ending on November 2nd. The Bungie 30th Anniversary Event kicks off just a month later, on December 5th, as does The Dawning Holiday Event sometime this month. The witch queen and the corresponding season will begin on February 22, 2022, which will coincide with Abandoned Campaign and the goal Tangled Shore to the Destiny Content Vault. Some players speculate that another main character might die in it The witch queenwho may be just one more person to mourn at the Festival of the Lost next year.[Source: Bungie]
