Destiny Crota’s End Hard Mode coming January 21

Bungie has confirmed the Destiny Crota’s End Hard Mode will arrive on January 21.
The Hard Mode for Crota’s End will be unlocked next week on January 21, Bungie revealed in the latest blog post.
Crota’s End, for those that want it, will soon have a Hard Mode that will make Crota and other enemies much more challenging foes.
The update will go live at around the 6pm mark for UK Destiny gamers on that date, although Bungie does ask for a little leniency around the specific time.
Not only will the enemies be much trickier to defeat, but the Hard Mode will also introduce some new loot for you to compete for.
Those trying out the Hard Mode will have a chance to earn powerful new primary weapons, an exclusive colour palette and the above shop known as The Bane of Gods.

“Hard Mode for Crota’s End is ready. We know you are, too. The first Fireteam to sink their teeth (and their sword) into the final boss (and by opposing, end him) will set the pace,” said Bungie. “We’ll be watching. We might even send the World First finishers some swag from the Bungie Store.”
Crota’s End Hard Mode will also be the only place to obtain the Crux of Crota, which allows you to upgrade the Eidolon Ally auto rifle to its final form, the Necochasm.
The primary weapons that might pop up in your Hard Mode loot are as follows:
