Destiny 2's Solstice of Heroes begins today on PlayStation 4. The lengthy live event is available to all players regardless of which expansions you own, and it lasts until the 28th August, meaning that you have around a month to get stuck in.

The big draw here is that those who get involved can nab some powerful armour. Said armour can be upgraded through completing certain challenges during the event, eventually increasing its power level all the way to 400. In theory, it should prove to be an effective way for players to gain a lot of ground before September's Forsaken expansion launches. The event itself consists of remixed story missions and, as mentioned, specific challenges.
