Looking ahead to the Rise of Iron expansion, which is releasing on September 20 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Bungie announced that they’ll be doing a Cosmodrome Winter Tour on Wednesday, July 20 at 10am PT/1pm ET through Twitch.
“This will not be an incursion into the Plaguelands,” they add. “That’s for later. Before your adventures into new territories begin, you’re invited to join us for an exploration of how the world you know has changed with the passage of time.”
Next week will also see the return of Iron Banner Control, which will run from Tuesday, July 19 at 10am PT/1pm ET through Tuesday, July 26 at 2am PT/5am ET.
