Destiny’s annual Halloween-themed event, Festival of the Lost, is set to return once again in 2020 and brand-new leaks have given us our first-look at some of the upcoming loot.

Festival of the Lost is one of many limited-time events in Destiny 2 that takes from real-world festivities. The Halloween-inspired event often has players dressing up in costumes, walking through a cobweb-filled version of the Tower, and hunting down fresh loot.

While goofy masks and silly items are often front and center, there’s always some powerful items up for grabs as well. 2020 looks to be no different as entirely new armor sets have been leaked for all three classes.

Along with sparrows and Ghost Shells, a ton of information has been datamined well ahead of an official reveal. Here’s what we know from a first-look at leaked Festival of the Lost images.

Leaks have revealed our first look at upcoming Festival of the Lost armor.

Three new armor sets appear to be ratcheting up the fright like never before. Warlock’s have a fancy, vampire-esque suit to look forward to.

Meanwhile, Hunters are set to don a red riding hood inspired costume with a wolf’s head and chilling yellow eyes. Last but not least is the new Titan armor that appears to reflect some kind of infected monster that’s broken free from its shackles.

All three are incredibly detailed and stand out from any armor set currently available in Destiny. Expect them to be extremely popular throughout the event as players dress up for the spooky celebration.

A new Ghost Shell and Sparrow will soon be available for a limited time.

The next leaked image gives us a look at two upcoming items. One is a spiderweb riddled sparrow and the other is a Ghost Shell wearing a witch’s hat

In the final leak, all three armor sets are shown in front of what appears to be a Trials of Osiris icon. They show Guardians emoting in new ways, potentially to give the opposing trio a fright.

Perhaps Trials will soon be handing out limited-time rewards during the Festival of the Lost.

No date has been locked in for the upcoming Festival of the Lost event. Thought the festivities always kick off towards the end of October, right in time for Halloween. 

It’ll almost certainly mark the final limited-time event before the next major content drop. Beyond Light is set to release on November 10 and could be the darkest expansion yet.

Destiny 2 might be gearing up for a return to the Old Tower in the upcoming Beyond Light expansion after leaked PlayStation artwork hinted at Guardians making their way back to the fan-favorite hub.

The Tower was featured as the main social hub in the first Destiny title, where players could interact with each other, purchase any supplies, and complete their quests.

After it was attacked by the Red Legion at the start of the Destiny 2 campaign, the remaining guardians were forced to move to The Farm, before later moving to a new Tower, but new Beyond Light leaks have now finally hinted at a return to the original Vanguard headquarters.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light to return to Old Tower

While the Last City’s tower was destroyed in the attack, it seems as if it might be rebuilt for the franchise’s next major expansion, with artwork appearing to highlight the old tower in its former glory.

The leak was shared by Destiny data miner u/Felwinter_123, on October 24, who revealed they had found new images within the PlayStation Store’s HTML code.

These images, which were designed to fit the PlayStation app’s artwork, featured three guardians looking on at the old Tower, which was standing tall above the Last City once again.

 

Healed traveler in Destiny 2: Beyond Light?

With The Traveler, a large vessel that hovers above the Last City and allows humans to travel between worlds, also being featured in the picture, many fans began to speculate that it could also be healed for the upcoming expansion.

The Traveler has been left in a damaged state after it finally managed to defeat Ghaul, along with help from the Guardians, and liberate the Last City but that could soon change, if these new images are anything to go by.

After the leaks surfaced, PlayStation has since updated the official Destiny artwork with these images, suggesting that it is no longer a rumored change.

 

However, it is still worth noting that while the changes are suggested in the artwork, whether or not we will return to the original Tower remains unclear and Bungie can still change elements of Beyond Light before its release.

For now, Destiny fans will just have to wait until the arrival of the expansion on November 10 to find out for sure.
