  • Accidental Embargo Break Indicates That Destiny 2 is Going Free to Play

As part of a Destiny 2 livestream Bungie notes that all future expansions will be released in this manner as standalone bits of DLC that will connect to Destiny 2: New Light.

Bungie also announced that Destiny 2 will have cross-save functionality across all platforms - PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Google Stadia - syncing your progress across these, and allowing you to play on your account from whichever device you like. As a result, the base game and its year-one content will be rebranded to a new title, Destiny 2: New Light.

No sooner had Destiny 2 started the rollout of its final Year 2 piece of content - the amazing-looking Season of Opulence - than dataminers have uncovered the game's next step: Shadowkeep.

This is huge. This means with just New Light you can play with your friends on nearly all of the multiplayer content Destiny 2 has to offer and still get some of that sweet backstory.

Purchasing "Shadowkeep" will also give you all the premium content for that season.

The next Xbox console will release "Holiday 2020"
Microsoft also revealed that Gears 5 will be crossing over with Terminator Dark Fate with a character pack featuring a terminator. This standalone subscription will cost $4.99/month, which is half cheaper than the regular Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One.

Bungie is also offering a Digital Deluxe version of Shadowkeep, which includes new Seasonal activities via Four Season Passes, plus exclusive Eris Morn themed items including an Exotic Emote, Exotic Ghost Shell, and Emblem.

When Bungie announced cross-save for Destiny 2 yesterday, the company didn't go into too much detail about how it all would work.

The Shadowkeep expansion will take players back to one of the favourite destinations of Destiny 1, the Moon, and there will be a collectors edition which indicates the expansion is fairly big.

I'm certain that this will please a lot of Destiny 2 PC fans who wanted to at least try the game. While it's not exactly clear what all of this means from a story perspective, players are pretty excited to be going back to one of the most iconic locations from the original Destiny. Once Shadowkeep launches on September 17, Destiny 2 will go free to play and will be renamed Destiny 2: New Light.

In any case, those of you anxious what Destiny 2 would look like post-Activision, I think it's safe to breathe now. All future expansions will be offered on an a la carte basis, meaning you can buy what like, when you like, rather than having to commit to an Annual Pass. Cross-saving and no exclusive content going forward help in that regard as well.
