For the second year in a row, Destiny’s Festival of the Lost has kicked off.


Bungie previously announced that Festival of the Lost, Destiny‘s version of Halloween, will go live today. We weren’t sure if the event is starting alongside today’s reset, or if it’s kicking off later.

We now have our answer, as Festival of the Lost has indeed gone live with the reset. You will notice the game’s social spaces are all adorned with festival-appropriate colours, and Crucible matches are taking place at night.

This year’s Festival of the Lost brings a number of of very cool masks and weapon Ornaments, and it’ll go on until November 8. You should speak to Tyra Karn at the Iron Temple when you log in.

We’ll be bringing you more news from the festival as we spend some more time with it. Until then, here’s the patch notes for the event:


  • Visit Eva Levante in the Tower to Trick or Treat and earn paper Masks
  • Visit Tyra Karn in the Iron Temple to assist with a task
