Those include a guitar emote and a new dance, both of which you can see here, as well as new Ghosts, ships, and a sparrow, which are all pictured above.

The Festival of the Lost takes place next week in Destiny 2, and Bungie has detailed the festivities.

Festival of the Lost begins for all players of Destiny 2 on Tuesday, October 16 with the weekly reset, and we have some information on what to expect this year. The Tower will be adorned with spooky decorations, and she'll offer daily bounties that pay out a new type of item called Fragmented Souls.

ET on October 9, Michael's center was about 420 miles south of Panama City, Florida and 390 miles south of Apalachicola, Florida. Storm surge could reach a monstrous 12 feet in some areas - enough to "easily go over the roofs of some houses", he said.

Interestingly enough, this year's Festival of the Lost in Destiny 2 will be giving Guardians something more to do than just collect masks, because for a limited time, all players will be invited to the Haunted Forest to clear out its "ghouls and demons". "These items can be used to purchase Festival of the Lost masks, as well as the Horror Story Legendary Auto Rifle".

Guardians will have 15 minutes to dive as deep as they can into the Haunted Forest and defeat "the Nightmares lying in wait", but Bungie cautions players to say that the deeper that they go, the more hard the task becomes.

Though the Haunted Forest is likely set in Mercury's Infinite Forest, Bungie has confirmed that all players will be able to participate in it - the Haunted Forest will not require the Curse of Osiris expansion, and will be accessible via a "different node". Solo players and fireteams will have 15 minutes to get as far into the forest as they can, taking on increasingly hard enemies as they go. As Bungie put it, this "effectively awards players double Bright Engrams for the duration of Festival of the Lost". The deeper the players go into the forest, the more hard it gets. It is playable solo, with a pre-made fireteam, or through matchmaking. The quest line will kick off on October 30, and will add an additional source of powerful gear to be earned each week, offering players more ways of ranking up their power level after hitting the soft cap at 500.
