Destiny 2’s holiday event is returning, meaning there’s plenty of cheer to spread throughout the Tower. Here’s everything we know about The Dawning 2022 in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 just keeps going, and despite launching in 2017 shows no signs of slowing down with Lightfall approaching. Before then, though, we’ve got Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph to keep us playing, and The Dawning will return, too.

Destiny 2’s The Dawning event is a Christmas event that sees plenty of festive cheer in the Tower, with snowballs to throw, new bounties to complete, and special rewards to earn.

Here’s everything we know about Destiny 2 The Dawning 2022, including the start date, the rewards, and more.

New content and The Dawning rewards

This year, Bungie is adding an Event Card as it did with the Solstice event and Festival of the Lost.

Players can complete challenges on the Event Card to earn an emblem, shader, and exotic Ghost shell. The premium card adds another Ghost shell, Exotic Sparrow, and emote.

As for the activity, it appears we’ll be “baking treats with Space Grandma” (Eva Levante) again (which we spotted in Bungie’s pre-Season 19 blog post). This year we can share the spirit of the holidays with Fynch and Spider (again). The title “Star Baker” is up for grabs, too.
