Bungie is introducing Seasonal Challenges to Destiny 2 according to the latest This Week in Bungie community post.
The post first kicks things off by teasing the trailer for the next season, called “Season of the [REDACTED]” by Bungie. Be on the lookout for that tomorrow. Following that tease, Seasonal Challenges were discussed.
The reasoning behind introducing these challenges is reducing FOMO, or fear of missing out. They outlined several goals for these challenges including:
- Provide a guide to new, returning, and veteran players for what to do today/this week.
- Guide the player through the Seasonal content, week-over-week.
- Encourage players to engage with complexities and nuances of the Seasonal activity and rituals.
- Reduce the penalties on XP and Bright Dust for missing a given week
It looks like seasonal challenges are the solution for these goals. Therefore, for the first 10 weeks of a season, look for 3-10 new challenges every week. Some challenges may include seasonal content, while others will involve strikes, Gambits, Crucible, or other non-activity focused items like obtaining power.
You can only complete these challenges once per account. You can complete them at any time before the season concludes. You’ll be awarded XP which contributes to your Season Pass. You can check out more details here.
