Today Bungie and Activision released a new trailer of the shared-world shooter Destiny 2, advertising a new event dubbed Solstice of Heroes.
The event will run from tomorrow, July 31st, until August 28th, and will commemorate the loss of the City to the Red Legion at the beginning of the game’s story.,
The focal point of the event will be a Statue of Heroes erected at the center of the Tower. Not only it’ll track your progress in the event, but it’ll give you a “Scorched” armor set at power level 240. Each armor piece will include a series of objectives that – once accomplished – will turn it into a “Rekindled” set with power level 340. A second set of objectives on this set will let you upgrade it to the level 400 “Resplendent” set, and a final series of objectives will let you get the final unlock to the Masterwork version.
Interestingly, the Resplendent set also lets you equip the looks of the previous sets as ornaments.
Among the objectives to complete are “Redux” missions, which are slightly altered versions of story missions.
The event also includes new Moments of Triumph, and dedicated engrams including weapons, vehicles, emotes, and armor glows.
