Yesterday Bungie revealed their new Valentine’s Day event, Crimson Days, which will run from Feb. 9–16. Crimson Days introduces a new PvP mode called Crimson Doubles that pairs two players together based off of a new “connection” algorithm and pits them against two other matched players.
The week long event will introduce new quests, bounties, legendary ghost shells, armor shaders, and the chance of a friendship that transcends even death itself. Results may vary.
In addition, the Eververse will be restocked with new Emotes that are only available during the event. The most notable of these new Emotes is the “Awkward and Strange” dance which bears more than a passing resemblance to Drake’s dance from his viral music video Hotline Bling.
I’ve played Destiny since the beginning. In fact, I’m crushing people in the Crucible as I write this. I think holiday events like these are a good way to build community and renew interest in the game. I’m especially excited about a Valentine’s themed event because I’m a single level 40 Hunter looking for a strong sexy female Titan to travel the solar system with.
