The post suggests players log in daily to collect a series of digital red envelopes, referencing a Chinese tradition of good luck and prosperity on the Lunar New Year. These envelopes traditionally contain money, which people exchange with family and friends as good wishes to each other. Legends suggest that Chinese New Year traditions stem from a fight against the Nian, a beast that is said to appear during the Lunar New Year to eat people and livestock. People spread out red paper and bamboo, lit candles, and wore red clothes to scare away the monster.
As the festival lasts for 15 days, players can anticipate up to 15 envelopes containing Bright Dust. However, it’s unclear if Bungie will offer these rewards throughout the real-world celebration.
The event-related rewards you can purchase with Bright Dust include a lamp-shaped ghost shell, several event-themed emotes, a ship, and a sparrow. Items available for purchase with money include a red and gold ghost shell in the shape of a rabbit, a special sparrow with a rabbit emblem affixed to the front, a ship adorned with Lunar New Year details and a Riskrunner ornament with red and gold details. The event will also grant players a Lunar New Year emblem, though it’s unclear if it will be available as a free reward.
Bright Dust is Destiny 2’s in-game currency, which players can usually acquire for free as rewards for completing Bounties or Triumphs or as bonus additions to paid content packages such as the Season Pass. On the other hand, Silver requires real money to be purchased.
Bungie has yet to share how much Bright Dust each envelope will contain. However, when Bungie released its 30th Anniversary package, all players could access 700 free Bright Dust every week for several weeks. Event-based Bright Dust rewards vary in price, costing up to 3250 Bright Dust for the Origami Crane Exotic emote.
The Lunar New Year bundle containing the Ghost Rabbit Shell, Ship, and Sparrow is set to cost 2200 Silver, according to Today in Destiny. Players who already own items in the bundle will see the bundle cost reduced accordingly. Separately, the ship and Sparrow are 800 Silver and the hull is 600.
While this event appears to be limited to cosmetics, it’s another way Bungie is finding ways to keep players invested in its popular free-to-play PC game through activities, events, and rewards ahead of the very release date. expected from Destiny 2 Lightfall. As that date approaches, players are looking to gear up and prepare for what lies ahead by completing the Destiny 2 Revision Zero exotic quest and catching up with the upcoming Destiny 2 Strand subclass, as Bungie recently offered updates on his Strand Warlock and Titan Subclasses.
