Solstice of Heroes, Destiny 2‘s new event, is now live. To ring in the seasonal celebration, Bungie has created a brand-new trailer to highlight the event’s best features.
From now until August 28th, all Guardians can visit Ikora Rey in the Tower to kick off their journeys through Solstice of Heroes. As seen in the sizzle footage below, the event will allow players to experience previous Destiny 2 content in new ways, as well as earn a new upgradeable armor set.
As previously revealed by the developer, Solstice of Heroes will feature Redux Missions, which will consist of five reworked versions of activities from the game’s primary campaign. New Moments of Triumph tasks will also be available, allowing Guardians to earn the Solstice Engrams that house new cosmetics and vehicles.
The main drive of the event, though, is for players to power up the Solstice of Heroes–themed armor sets. When Guardians first receive their classes’ armor, it will only have 240 Power. However, as they complete objectives, the gear will transform and gain better Power levels, with the cap being 400.
The event is not only a great way to catch up on the events of Destiny 2, but also a chance to prepare for Forsaken‘s launch. Starting on September 4th, players who purchase the fall DLC will have access to a huge collection of new content. The Solstice of Heroes’ armor at 400 Power should with the expansion’s missions, too, as Guardians will have to go up against a new enemy faction, several bosses, a mysterious raid encounter, and more.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Forsaken expansion will launch on September 4th.
