Destiny 2: Bungie’s 30th Anniversary Event Begins

Reading Time: 8 minutes

For 30 years, Bungie has been on an incredible journey with an amazing community of passionate fans by our side. Starting today, we’d like to take the opportunity to celebrate more than a few gaming experiences that have stood the test of time. We hope you’ll join us.

From early titles like Marathon and Oni to our evolving space epic, Destiny, our drive to make great games has remained steadfast. Thank you for playing. None of this would have been possible without you.

Given that our shared adventure continues today, we think it’s fitting to celebrate by launching a new Destiny 2 experience that brings us all together — we hope you enjoy the party.

Now let’s go spin a wheel in front of a horse.

Bungie’s 30th Anniversary

Everyone’s Invited

Within the Destiny universe exists a mysterious realm that defies explanation. In addition to being endlessly fascinating, the realm of the Nine makes a great setting for activities that push the boundaries of imagination (like the Prophecy dungeon). It also allows us the freedom to reference games that might not totally make sense within Destiny canon. It is here that Xûr, Agent of the Nine, has invited us to play a game.

Dares of Eternity

In this free six-player matchmade activity, players will travel to a new destination and meet with Xûr and a new companion known only as Starhorse. (Seriously. It’s a horse made of stars.) There, they’ll spin a wheel to determine the type of game they’ll play.

Bungie’s 30th Anniversary

Players who complete a Dare (hopefully to the horse’s delight) will receive access to Xûr’s treasure hoard filled to the brim with treasure that celebrates 30 years of Bungie games.

Everyone who finishes a Dare will get into the treasure room, but players who pick up the 30th Anniversary Pack can unlock additional rewards.

An Inspired Collection

For this momentous occasion, we’ve reached backwards through time and found inspiration in the worlds we’ve created over the last 30 years. Fueled by that inspiration, we built a collection of new rewards that pay homage to games from our past that you might recognize. Rewards like the Myth Claymore (Myth) and Marathon (Marathon) armor ornament set.

30th Anniversary Pack owners will immediately unlock a new set of universal ornaments that celebrate the timeless fashion of the 90s as well as a flaming helmet that promises to brighten even the darkest of loot caves.

These are only a few of the rewards available today. Hop in and discover the entire collection!

The Loot Cave Beckons

There are few things that inspire adventure more than the allure of unclaimed riches. Players who pick up the 30th Anniversary Pack will gain access to a new dungeon inspired by famed Cosmodrome loot caves of yore, their dizzying treasure rooms, and the treacherous lantern-lit caverns that must be explored to enjoy the fruits of their triumph.

Grasp of Avarice

This three-player dungeon will invite Guardians to reveal a tale of riches and regret as they follow an adventurer who traded his humanity for treasure. If they persevere, an iconic weapon and a new set of… sharp looking armor awaits.

Gjallarhorn Returns

The Exotic Rocket Launcher that made its name in Destiny returns with a few new tricks that are sure to blow your fireteam’s mind. We don’t want to spoil the moment for you if you haven’t finished your quest yet but suffice it to say that Gjallarhorn is happy to welcome any Legendary Rocket Launcher into its wolfpack.

In addition to its Destiny 2 update, we’ve also included a couple of ornaments to collect as well as a catalyst that will take its timeless power to even greater heights.

Every Cave Has its Thorn

Do you gravitate towards the ominous shaders in your collection? Are you more into being spoopy than silly? Do you have a long list of enemies that have fled to orbit questioning whether what they just faced was a Lightbearer… or something else?

If any of this sounds like you, you’re going to love one of the most metal (literally and figuratively) armor sets I’ve ever seen in Destiny.

Deluxe Edition 30th Anniversary Bundle

If our anniversary celebration sounds awesome, but you’re also curious about our new expansion launching on February 22, 2022, look at the bundle we’ve assembled. It includes everything in the 30th Anniversary Pack and adds The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition which includes a full year of Season Passes and more. Pick it up before the expansion launches and you’ll also snag the expansion’s pre-order instant unlocks.

The Journey Continues

Thank you for joining us on this wild 30-year journey! We hope you’re as excited as us for the next 30 years. Enjoy the celebration and, while you’re in the game, look at what’s currently happening in Season of the Lost. It doesn’t end until The Witch Queen launches next year, and we think you’ll love the story we’re telling.

Thanks for reading and we’ll see you starside.
