As October winds down, Destiny 2’s annual Festival of the Lost event is set to return and Bungie has revealed some of what players can look forward to this year. Along with the cosmetic goodies that players are used to, the Haunted Forest will also return this time around.

This year’s Festival will include the return of the Festival masks which for the first time will be cosmetic items rather than specific helmets. Once you’ve acquired a mask, you can equip it in an ornament slot for whatever helmet you’re currently wearing. Also returning this time around is Candy, which players can use to buy Mystery Grab Bags as well as the Braytech Werewolf Legendary Auto Rifle.

There will also be special festivities for players to participate in, though Bungie doesn’t give much of a preview of what those will include. The post does mention that Festival of the Lost and its activities will be available to all players, including New Light players. But everyone will need to be at least 770 Power to participate.

Just like last year, the Haunted Forest will send players through a shadow-y gauntlet with a limited amount of time to reach the end. Bungie’s Festival of the Lost announcement warns players to “beware of what awaits you at the end.”

Destiny 2’s Festival of the Lost will begin on Oct. 29 and end on Nov. 19.
