Bungie has announced that Destiny 2 is celebrating Halloween with the return of Festival of the Lost.

This is the first time the sequel will be getting in the Halloween spirit, although the event was previously introduced in the original Destiny. It usually involved a bunch of spooky cosmetic items, consumables, and time-limited quests, so presumably we'll get the same sort of thing again.

There's not much known about Destiny 2's first Festival of the Lost event, although Bungie has teased that it will be 'a celebration of lost heroes and a new challenge to tackle. It includes a costume party, and you're all invited. It ends with a quest to solve a murder.'

Festival of the Lost will kick off on October 16 at 6.00pm BST. Presumably we'll get to wear silly Halloween hats like last time around, although we'll just have to wait and see.

Destiny 2 recently saw the release of a major expansion in the shape of Forsaken, which will be supported by a year's worth of DLC via the new annual pass. This won't feature new planets, but Bungie's promised new locations in the shape of 'bubbles.' 

PlayStation 4 owners also get their hands on a bunch of exclusive content thanks to Activision and Sony's timed-exclusivity deal.

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
