Destiny 2’s next chapter is coming with a whole lot of new stuff to the game with its next big expansion. Bungie announced that the Shadowkeep, the Destiny 2 base game will go free-to-play on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia with all of its first year of content add-ons.
In the announcement, Bungie mentioned that the free-to-play version of Destiny 2 will be named as Destiny 2: New Light. This free package includes the vanilla version of Destiny 2 with its original raid, plus its first two content expansions, Curse of Osiris and Warmind which will be available for free of cost. However, if you wish to have the Forsaken expansion and the annual pass, you need to pay a sum of $40 USD. In the free version, you will be able to visit the locations added in Forsaken.
Bungie also announced that Destiny 2 will support cross-saves on all platforms beginning with Shadowkeep Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google’s Stadia. However, it’s not completely clear at this point is how you’ll access paid content on multiple platforms, and whether you’ll need to buy those things more than once.
“Destiny 2: New Light: Alongside Destiny 2: Shadowkeep comes a new way for players to enjoy the game. Destiny 2: New Light is a brand new entry point for newcomers that puts the worlds of Destiny 2–and all of its foundational modes, activities, and rewards–into the hands of every player, with no barrier to entry. With Destiny 2: New Light, anyone can play Destiny 2, and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s a la carte model is the first example of how we’re looking to deliver content to you in the future,” Bungie noted in the Press Release.
