Destiny: Rise of Iron players are invited to celebrate the end of the year with The Dawning, a new seasonal event kicking off at reset.

The Dawning brings Sparrow Racing League back to Destiny, introduces a new Strike scoring system called Vanguard Elite, offers a stack of new gear including two Exotic quests and Year 3 Icebreaker, gifts you with free presents and offers two new record books.

The accompanying update delivers two reprised strikes and fizes some longstanding Destiny: Rise of Iron issues like the Skeleton Key drop rate and Sigil of the Young Wolf bug.

But that’s just the executive summary; tune in to Arekkz‘s video above to get on board all of this, and everything else you should know before you dive into Destiny: The Dawning in a few hours.
