Bungie showed off it’s next event that is actually slightly more than an event. Later this month we will be getting Destiny: The Dawning. The Dawning is the winter event that will host this year’s Sparrow Racing League. SRL will feature new track and new sparrows. It appeared to be 2 new tracks, one being a winter Cosmodrome track and the other a vex based Mars map. There was no mention to exactly how many tracks there will be. But this isn’t everything.
Guardians will also be getting strike scoring. This appears to be a points based system like Challenge of the Elders where you can compete for the top spot of a leaderboard. This will give even more replay value for the strikes we have.
New weapons and armor will be coming with The Dawning also. There was a glimpse of the Icebreaker as well in the trailer. This is a famed exotic sniper rifle from vanilla Destiny. Other weapons involved new ornaments as well as the separate elemental versions of the Thunderlord which have been known about for a year now.
There also will be new quests. SRL will surely have its own quest but there are PvE based quests in the trailer as well so we will await more details on that.
Check out the trailer below:
