This week at Bungie, we got spooky
This week at Bungie, we got spooky.
The Tower is full this week. Festival of the Lost has begun! The engram lanterns have been hung, and purple candles lit. Players are confronting their Nightmares in the Haunted Forest and earning some sweet loot in the process. We’re just getting started.
In case you missed it, you can watch the trailer here.
The festival isn’t the only reason to visit the Tower. Lord Saladin is currently overseeing the Iron Banner, Valour gains are increased in the Crucible, and the Dreaming City has been overrun with Taken. With so much to do, you have some choices to make about where to commit yourself to the action. Visit the Blind Well, hammer out some Iron Banner bounties, or see how far you can dive into the Haunted Forest? No matter what you choose, there’s something to earn or a goal to achieve.
Festival of the Lost is in full swing. Last week the team showed off some papercraft masks you can download and put together to bring the spirit of the festival to life. The three-pack bundle of masks is still available on the Bungie Store, and the chicken mask is free to everyone who has the patience. If you want to see how to put it together, Graphic Designer Zoë Brookes can show you how it’s done – check it out here.
Masks are not the only Festival of the Lost arts and crafts activity we have to offer. We just uploaded 14 Destiny 2–themed pumpkin stencils for you to use to create some spooky decorations. You do have to supply your own pumpkins.
- Gambit (Simple)
- Gambit (Complex)
- Hunter Parade
- Titan Parade
- Warlock Parade
If you want to collect them all, you can get the full set here. Take a stab at carving your pumpkins and then share your results with the team @Bungie on Twitter and Instagram. We will share a few of our favourites. Don’t feel tethered to the stencils above. If you have the talent, feel free to carve outside the lines.
It’s Got What Plants Crave
If you’re the competitive type, this may be right up your alley. Live through November 8 in ANZ, the Rockstar Energy Riots In-game Competition offers weekly challenges in the Crucible, Gambit, and strikes. Earn points by completing matches, defeating Guardians, or getting precision kills. The top four players from the Qualifier Round will be challenged in the ways of old, squaring off here at Bungie for more than just bragging rights. For more information, head over here.
Movie of the Week
Welcome to Edge Transit of the Week. This is where we pick our favourite Edge Transits from the Edge Transit community. Here are this week’s Edge Transits.
If you’d like a shot at the Edge Transit emblem, make sure to submit your Edge Transit to the Edge Transit page on EdgeTransit.net.
It’s a crowded week with a lot of avenues for both increasing your Power and having a good time with funny masks. Make sure you check out the DCP podcast later today. Bungie Community Manager, Dmg04 will be their guest. This is your opportunity to get to know one of your community managers a little better.
