About Destiny 2

Destiny 2: New Light was released in 2017 by Bungie, the developer team behind Halo, as a sequel to Destiny. It’s an online multiplayer first-person shooter which is termed free-to-play by the company but feels like a stunted version of the game if you don’t get the DLC or season passes. It is available for PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Stadia, and can be played in PvE as well as PvP modes.

Destiny 2 Holiday Oven 2.0 Since the launch, Bungie has rolled out expansion packs dubbed Curse of Osiris, Warmind, Forsaken, Shadowkeep and Beyond Light. New expansions called The Witch Queen and Lightfall are scheduled for launch in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

What is The Dawning in Destiny 2?

The Dawning is an annual event in Destiny 2 that starts in December and ends in January. There is no fixed date of release; it changes every year. Considering that Bungie has not missed out on announcing the event since its first launch in 2017, expect it in 2021 too. The list below contains the complete collection of Eva’s holiday oven 2.0 recipes till date.
