Debuting with the new package is the European Aerial Zone, which seems to be a remix on the Haunted-Infinite-Revelry Forest.

Now this is all fine and dandy, a new mode of play and all, but that's not what fans of the game are really excited about.

Solstice packages in Destiny 2 — here's how to max out your armor upgrades.

What gamers really want is the ability to flaunt the sweet new armor sets that Bungie's created specifically for the Solstice of Heroes. How do you get these blinged-out, pimped-out, fantastic new digs that come with a slew of new set mod slots and extras? 

Easy, complete the challenges that are delineated in the game over the next month and you'll be rocking sweet, gleaming armor in no time.

The first set that you start with is Drained, and that's a given. Then you need to work for a Renewed armor set, which can then be upgraded to Majestic. Now once you've hit the Majestic status, you can then unlock additional challenges that'll get you the coveted Masterwork title for you and your piece of armor.

Thanks to Redditor JpDeathBlade, a datamine of all the necessary steps to reach the Masterwork Armor class has been posted online.
