Destiny 2 Reveals New Mars Event Ahead of Shadowkeep

by Liana Ruppert

Now that cross-save is now live for Destiny 2 players, the final stretch before its Steam launch and Shadowkeep is almost over. To prepare for the upcoming expansion and all of its changes, the team over at Bungie is adding a special new Mars event to get Guardians even more amped up.

Bungie took to their blog once more to talk about what’s next, including a unique set of challenges on Mars that players can take on that will be available on September 3rd. According to the most recent blog post, here’s what Guardians have to look forward to between the 3rd and the 10th: 

  • Defeat 175 thousand wave 7 Escalation Protocol bosses
  • Defeat 300 million Hive on Mars
  • Mars Nightfalls: Defeat Nokris 150,000 times, defeat Xol 100,000 times

For those that complete the seemingly daunting tasks above, there will be a unique emblem at the end of that particular rainbow. The studio also added, “This also serves as an opportunity for you to further impress Emperor Calus. If the community reaches all the above goals, Calus will unlock additional rewards for successful Menagerie completions. Starting when goals are met, players will be guaranteed two rewards when slotting their runes and opening the chest, and an additional reward will be added each Friday for the remainder of the Season.”

The new adventures of Shadowkeep begin in Destiny 2 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players on October 1st.
