Destiny 2's The Dawning event starts Tuesday

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Winter is coming.

Bungie has announced its festive event The Dawning will hit Destiny 2 servers next Tuesday, December 19, and run through till January 9.

The event will see social spaces The Tower and The Farm blanketed in snow and baubles. You can even pick up the snow and lob snowballs at your friends.

During the event, you'll also be able to stun enemies in Strikes with snowballs, while the Crucible will see the return of the Mayhem mode, where abilities recharge super-fast and point values get much higher much faster.

There will be milestones associated with the Strikes and Mayhem playlists, and if you hit them throughout the three weeks of The Dawning then you'll earn a special Dawning engram, which contains rewards like special consumables, a new sparrow, ghost, ship and emote, as well as new Dawning-themed legendary armor pieces.

If RNG screws you over, Bungie is also giving Tess each of these items to sell across the three weeks of the event, so you should be able to pick them up in exchange for Bright Dust.

During The Dawning you will also be able to pick up a special Dawning Gift Schematic from the Bazaar, then head off and craft Dawning gifts for vendors and agents in the Tower and beyond, who will then give you a gift in return. Fated Engram plz!
