Bungie Studios has been around in the gaming scene for quite some time now, with this year marking its 30th Anniversary. To commemorate the company’s history developing cult hits, in-game events and a special DLC pack will be coming to Destiny 2.  When it comes to Destiny 2’s 30th Anniversary Event, here’s everything you need to know.

Destiny 2 was developed by Bungie Studios and released on Sept. 6, 2017, though it had recently turned free-to-play with the release of the New Light version in 2019. Bungie Studios is best known for developing the first few titles of Microsoft’s Halo series and Destiny, while also being responsible for classic cult-hits like Oni and Myth.

There will be several in-game events where players could earn free rewards, like the addition of a new 6-player match-made activity. However, the real meat of the event comes from the 30th Anniversary Pack, a DLC add-on that features a new dungeon, armor sets, weapons, and more. The pack will be released in December 2021, with more information about free content coming at a later date.

Included in the pack is as follows, with more to be announced as the event draws near:

  • A new Pirate-themed dungeon
  • An Thorn-inspired armor set
  • Bungie-themed ornaments and cosmetics
  • The Claymore Sword from Bungie’s Myth

Though perhaps the biggest piece of news in this event is the return of the Gjallarhorn, a fan-favorite launcher that’s established itself as the best weapon in the first Destiny game. As a part of the 30th Anniversary Pack, players can purchase the weapon when the pack releases. It’s worth noting that it may be re-adjusted in accordance with Destiny 2’s mechanics, so it might not be the overpowered beast it was in Destiny.

Destiny 2 is now available to play, and it’s 30th Anniversary Pack will release December 2021.
