There's a wide variety of content coming to Destiny 2 with Festival of the Lost. From Eva, you'll be able to get a special Masquerader Helmet, which will then allow you to earn pieces of Candy and Chocolate Strange Coins from defeating enemies, completing Festival of the Lost bounties, and completing Festival of the Lost activities such as the Haunted Forest, which is returning from the previous event. These items can be used to purchase new mask ornaments for your helmet, as well as an assortment of other themed cosmetic items. You can also use Candy to obtain the 950 Power Braytech Werewolf Auto Rifle, too.

On top of this, there will also be an assortment of cosmetic items exclusive to Eververse, Destiny 2's in-game cosmetic store. Whether or not you'll have to buy them with the game's paid currency, Silver, is unknown, but hopefully there will be an opportunity to earn these items or purchase them with Bright Dust, which you can earn in-game by completing bounties. For a full overview of the items coming in Festival of the Lost, make sure to check out Bungie's blog post.
