Destiny 2's end of the year event has gone live, bringing a whole bunch of content for players to look forward to during the Holidays.

Like every December, Eva Levante has arrived at the Tower in Destiny 2, kicking off The Dawning, Bungie's end of the year event.

This time around, the event feature's an exotic quest as well as a community challenge that will reward every Guardian with some sweet loot.

Let's cut to the chase and break down everything available in The Dawning 2020 in Destiny 2. 

Destiny 2 The Dawning - When does it end?

Just as a reminder, The Dawning started this 15th December and will run until the 5th of January. Every cosmetic item special to this festivity that you didn't acquire, such as emotes, ornaments, vehicles, and more, won't come back until the next Dawning event at the end of 2021.

Exotic quest and community challenge

During The Dawning players can complete an exotic quest that will reward them with the Starfarer 7M Ship. The quest is called "And to All a Good Flight." As you progress through it, you'll unlock special perks for your ship and the occasional legendary gear drop.

Eva Levante will give you the quest once you talk to her.
