Our Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost Guide details everything that you need to know about completing Festival of the Lost event and earning everything exclusive to this event.

Since the event is now live, jumping in the game will give you a whole new look as Amanda Holiday has been really busy putting on some new decorations around The Tower. It has been decorated with a really spooky setting and is filled with banners, candles and pumpkins all around. Since the festival is all about remembering the fallen, some ‘In Memory Of’ holograms are also visible here and there.

Event Duration

Festival of the Lost is a limited timed event and will only run from October 16th to November 6th 2018. You can play the event as much as you like during this time. This is plenty of time to earn all the exclusive items and nail those bounties.
