This week at Bungie, the celebration has just begun

This week at Bungie, the celebration has just begun.

We’re watching Guardians return to the Red War with the Solstice of Heroes. You’ve got plentiful objectives to pursue, Moments of Triumph to complete, and new ways to experience campaign missions—and the team are excited to hear your stories. Some of you have already been inspired by some of the changes, which has resulted in some awesome artwork found in the wild.

This is just the beginning of a month-long event; Solstice of Heroes will be available through August 29 in ANZ. That’s ample time to get in and start building up your armour.

Tally Marks

The community stories from Solstice of Heroes aren’t the only thing that the team are watching. Our Analytics team has helped them to bring forward some statistics from Season 3. From the looks of it, Uldren had better start running…

Checking Them Off, One by One

As Year 1 comes to a close, many of you are searching for every available item or piece of gear that can be found in Destiny 2. Some items will still be available in Season 4, such as destination weapons and armour sets. Other Year 1 items will be retired from vendors when Destiny 2: Forsaken releases on September 5, 2018 in ANZ:

Vanguard

  • Year 1 weapons
  • Year 1 armour
  • Seasonal rewards

Crucible

  • Year 1 weapons
  • Year 1 armour
  • Seasonal rewards

Gunsmith

  • Year 1 weapons
  • Year 1 mods, which will no longer be obtainable
  • Year 1 emblems

Ikora (Vanguard Research Packages from Meditations)

  • Year 1 armour
  • Year 1 emblems

Trials of the Nine

  • Year 1 weapons
  • Year 1 armour
  • Year 1 shaders
  • Year 1 ships, Sparrows, and Ghost Shells

Iron Banner

  • Year 1 weapons
  • Year 1 armour
  • Year 1 shaders
  • Year 1 ships, Sparrows, and Ghost Shells

Cayde’s Stashes

  • Year 1 emblems

While these Year 1 items will be retired from vendors, their stock will be refreshed with new gear featuring random rolls, ready for all players to earn in Year 2. Some items may return in Year 2, but not exactly as you remember them. Come September 5 in ANZ, a small number of weapons that you know and love will be updated to Year 2 standards, featuring random rolls and the capacity to accept Year 2 weapon modifications. 

Destiny 2: Forsaken Combat Stream 

The team know all this talk about new weapons and new mods has you wondering what combat will be like in the second year of Destiny 2. Rather than try to explain the new sandbox, we’re going to show you.

Tune in and watch as the team configure their Guardians to play a specific role in the arena. Catch a glimpse of the new user interface you’ll employ to choose your weapon and modify it. Spectate a battle between developers on a new Crucible map to debut in Season 4.

There will be blood. 

Movie of the Week 

During the Solstice of Heroes event, you’ll be challenged to complete many Moments of Triumph to earn awesome rewards. This week, we’re celebrating a few moments where players triumphed over their enemies—moments that were recorded and submitted to the Community Creations page.

If you’d like a chance to earn the Lens of Fate emblem, make sure to submit your video to the Creations page on bungie.net and include #MOTW in your title.

And before we move along, let’s celebrate another moment of triumph for the top three fireteams from last week’s Prestige Nightfall:

As the team look to the last mile before launch, setting expectations is the name of the game. They’ll be serving up information on everything from character progression to endgame. Have any burning questions about what’s changing in Forsaken? Let them know on the Destiny 2 forum. They can’t answer every question individually, but will look to answer as many as we can in the next few blog entries.

You may have noticed a recurring theme throughout this article. Solstice of Heroes is here, but it’s just the beginning. Some of you have been very busy. The team are already seeing some masterworked armour sets in the wild. People are already bragging about securing access to their trophy garment. Don’t let that scare you, though. We are only three days into a month-long event.
