Happy New Years folks! To celebrate the new year, Bungie has picked out a bunch of gifts to hand out to all active Destiny players. On January 7, all Destiny players will receive 15 strange coins and 15 motes of light. These forms of currency can be used to purchase items from the travelling trader Xur.
To access your New Year gift, just head to the postmaster in the Tower after January 7 and you will be able to pick up the 15 strange coins and 15 motes of light.
On top of the free currency, Bungie are offering an extra reward for any players who stay active during the new year. If you log into Destiny on either January 7, January 8, January 9 or January 10 you will be rewarded with a unique exclusive emblem. It's important that you complete a playable activity if you log in to collect the emblem. This could simply be a quick Crucible match, a Raid or any other activity that ends with a loot screen.
If you participate in the New Year emblem challenge then you will be able to use the emblem after January 12. On the 12th of January the emblem should arrive at the postmaster if you make sure to complete a playable activity during the days mentioned above.
Besides the emblem and the free currency, Bungie doesn't have any other gifts to offer for the New Year but there is bound to be a lot of content in the works for 2016.
