Update: The event is now over, and it turned out to be more important than just energizing a traveler away. For those who had access to the tower, a new mission located in the last city became available. Once there, the player was tasked with “investigating disturbance”. Here are some screenshots that Tim took:
And yes, the speculations were correct: the traveler had healed himself. At the end of the event, all the planets that were due to leave Destiny 2 with the arrival of Beyond Light – Io, Titan, Mercury, and Mars – are encapsulated in darkness before they disappear from the in-game map.
Here is the end of the scene:

The original story:
Before launching Fate 2: Beyond the Light Tomorrow, players flock to the tower to witness the conclusion of the arrival season. Promised event by community manager DMG04 He said it would be “small”, already underway: something happens to the traveler.
The traveler, for those unaware, is the worst area of wear suspended directly above the ground, always visible from the sign. According to eyewitnesses, the thing is now glowing, and some guys speculate that it might be in the process of healing:

At the time of writing, it is unclear how the rest of the night will start, though the servers are expected to shut down at 7 PM PST, and it won’t be back until 9 AM PDT tomorrow when Beyond Light launches. The new expansion will see Guardians travel to Europa, the moon of Jupiter, to confront the Fallen Kell named Eramis who mocked the powers of The Darkness.
For those who are not ready for Bungie’s looter shooter tradition, The Darkness in the game is represented by a group of sinister hierarchical ships currently hovering over Io, Titan, Mercury and Mars. These four destinations, and a host of other content, aredomed“ Tomorrow, (that is, remove it from the game), so it’s safe to say that something bad is about to happen.
As to whether The Traveler is recovering (it was damaged previously as part of Destiny 2’s Vanilla campaign), here’s what Destiny resident Tim Clark says: “It’s definitely possible. I wonder if The Traveler is really preparing to leave and this would be a shock detour. The arrival of pyramid ships represents an existential threat to it, so you may be planning to make a bed if you think the Guardians are not up to the task of protecting them. “
Last week, Creative Director Luke Smith Wrote That the event “is not such a crazy thing, just a little time to relax in the tower before the lights go out.” And what could be cooler than the Skybox scene? This is the second event in Destiny 2, after God Almighty cut offWhich began at the beginning of the eligible season. This included some missiles traveling very slowly towards the incoming ship Kabal which was on a collision course with the turret.
It took a long time, which is something Bungie admitted afterward, but it led to a few fairly quiet seconds when the boom finally burst. So far, this guy appears to be playing similar style, with only minor visual changes to The Traveler to watch so far, and many players have been struggling to log in at all.
