Destiny 2's Crimson Days event is kicking off next week on Feb. 13, and it's bringing a classic Destiny 1 map with it.

The Burnout is "a new take" on The Burning Shrine from Destiny 1, a favorite map for small-scale skirmishes and the original Trials of Osiris map. It's the second reimagining of a map from the original game, after a new take on Shores of Time.

Crimson Days' new Crucible mode is a two-vs.-two Clash with "a round-based twist," where players get a buff from their teammates after they have died that round.

"The sun is darkened and the only Light to be found comes from you and your partner fighting as one," explained Bungie. "Stay in close proximity to your partner and your abilities recharge at a faster rate. Stray too far, and your enemies will be given a waypoint leading to your location. If you can’t find a partner, don’t worry. We’ll play matchmaker and find one for you."

As is usually the case with timed events, there's a lot of loot to be earned. There are new weapon ornaments, Ghost shells, emotes, Shaders, Sparrows, and more. New items can be earned through playing Crimson Days matches, Raid activities, and the Nightfall Strike, as well as direct purchase through Tess Everis.

Crimson Engrams, however, will only be available through gameplay. Players can use Bright Dust to purchase the items they want, but leveling up will earn the Crimson Engrams to unlock the time-limited items available in the loot table.

The event kicks off at 11am CT on Feb. 13 and will end on Feb. 20.
