There's a new season coming next week to Destiny 2. Last week, Bungie talked about the return of Umbral Engrams, and this week's blog post focuses on another attempt to reduce FOMO, or Fear of Missing Out, in the form of Seasonal Challenges.

This new approach is meant to make it easier for all players to understand and enjoy seasonal content in the game, giving Seasonal Challenges their own page with weekly challenges (through week 10) that are easier to track. They can be completed any time after they go live, meaning you can take three weeks off and still be able to do the challenges from the weeks you didn't log in. Weekly bounties from vendors are being removed as part of the transition, and "roughly 60%" of Seasonal Challenges don't require the Season Pass.

Bright Dust is also being worked into Seasonal Challenges, with each strike, Crucible, and Gambit Seasonal Challenge awarding 75 to 300 Dust. You can also get 120 Bright Dust for each ritual vendor challenge and a whopping 4,000 Bright Dust "if you complete (nearly) all of the Seasonal Challenges."

The rest of the post talks about changes to recoil, coming with crossplay later this year, as well as the multitude of buffs and nerfs coming with the new season. Also, the Crimson Days festival will not be returning in February, which will allow the dev team "to maintain focus for alternate Seasonal offerings." Cancelling pseudo-Valentine's Day? That's heartless, Bungie.
