Bungie has announced that they will be bringing back the Guardian Games to Destiny 2, starting on April 20th. Much like last year, there will be several events that Guardians can take part in and earn several rewards through the course of the Games, including the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun and catalyst, an Exotic Sparrow, Legendary class items, two emblems, and two shaders. Along with those, the Eververse will have a new Guardian Games Universal Ornament Set with glowing class items, as well as a new weapon ornament for Heir Apparent, more sporting Exotic emotes, and a few extra special items. We got a few more details for you below as the games will kick off on Tuesday.
The Vanguard has secured a ceasefire with the Cabal Empress Caiatl and humanity enjoys a brief moment of respite. Eager to celebrate Guardians and lift spirits, Zavala sounds the call to competition and the class banners are raised around the Tower. The Guardian Games have returned and glory awaits. Titans dominated the last Guardian Games. Ever since, Hunters and Warlocks have been preparing for the annual challenge of skill, bravery, and resolve. Earn medals from Eva Levante by completing Contender Cards and Triumphs. Each week is a new chance to be recognized as the top class in the Games.
Bungie Rewards will also be available for Guardians who have finished the opening quest, allowing them to pick up the Guardian Games track jacket. Players who participate in the Guardian Games Closing Ceremony can pick up a gold pin commemorating winning class. At the end of each week, podium ceremonies will grant gold, silver and bronze auras to each class that will last for the following week. The winning class will be recognized at the Guardian Games Closing Ceremonies May 7-9, along with a trophy displayed in the Tower to showcase the winning class for the next year.
