Destiny 2 players are counting down to the start of the annual Crimson Days Valentine’s event. The 2020 Crimson Days spectacular takes place from February 11 until the Weekly Reset on February 18. If you’re a Destiny 2 fan looking for something different to play this week, then read on for everything you need to know about Crimson Days 2020.
The Destiny 2 Crimson Days Valentine’s event kicks off at 6pm UK time on February 11.
Unfortunately, however, new players won’t be able to join in unless they’ve escaped the Cosmodrome, unlocked the Tower and reached 790 Power.
Unlock the requirements and you’ll receive a message telling you to visit Lord Shaxx, who serves as your Crimson Days vendor. You can visit Shaxx to unlock bounties and purchase event rewards.
“During Crimson Days, Lord Shaxx prepares a special Crimson Days Doubles playlist for Guardians to compete for valor and rewards,” Bungie explains.
“New Light players are able to enter the Crimson Days Doubles playlist as soon as they escape the Cosmodrome and unlock the Tower.”
Needless to say, the event features a host of special rules and abilities centred around playing together as a couple.
Reunited, for example, is a special Crucible buff that increases the recharge rate of Guardian abilities for teammates who are close together. Falling Apart, meanwhile, is a debuff that grants enemy teammates waypoints to your location when you and your teammate drift too far apart in a Crucible match.
To highlight the importance of playing as a team and sharing a bond with your partner, Vengeance is a special ability that’s triggered when your teammate dies. Surviving players are granted increased ability regeneration, as well as some additional health.
