Destiny 2 players have plenty of in-game fun to look forward in July, such as the Solstice of Heroes event . Changes are also coming to the Crucible.

Destiny 2 players will be able to participate in the Solstice of Heroes event when it kick off on July 31.

Crucible Ranks and the Crucible Playlist will receive an update when 1.2.3 drops on Tuesday, July 17.
