The developers at Bungie wish to start off the new year in gratitude to those who helped make 2015 a successful one for them and for their game Destiny. As such, as noted on the Bungie website, players of Destiny will receive free gifts at the beginning of the year. Here is the official breakdown straight from the team at Bungie:
“When we all return from a long winter’s nap, we’ll still be in the giving mood. Just because you’re all awesome, we’ll be stuffing your stockings with 15 Strange Coins and 15 Motes of Light. They should arrive on January 7th, after we’ve all had a chance to settle in after our travels. We’ll sound an update in the usual places when they arrive.
Think of it as a gift card you can use in the Tower, where the stores are always open and there is a never a line. Buy something nice from Xûr with those Coins, but don’t spend all your Motes to upgrade one item. See the Postmaster for your packages when the time comes – you may have to clear your backlog for them to appear.
As a final gesture, if you make an appearance in the world of Destiny any time from January 7th to January 10th, we’ll throw in an exclusive yet-to-be-revealed Emblem to mark the fact that you were there. Just log onto Destiny and play whatever you like. Complete a playable activity in your Director so we can track you! We’ll pass out the Emblems to those who qualify on January 12th.
As a new year dawns, stop by to collect a token of our thanks for sharing the adventure as it continues.”
