After Google revealed about Stadia in a presentation on Thursday, the Destiny 2 handlers at Bungie broadcasted their own presentation regarding the game. The broadcast was about the upcoming paid expansion of the game Shadowkeep which is scheduled to be released on September 17.
There have been reports that following the Shadowkeep will go live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10, and Google Stadia this September, the base version of the game Destiny 2 will be made available to download for free and will also be available to boot, and play on Bungie’s live servers.
“The “New Light” version of Destiny 2 will be called as “Destiny 2 Year One,” and the game will include overworld and campaign content from the 2016 SKU and the game’s first pair of paid expansions, Warmind and Curse of Osiris”, according to a post from a digital newspaper.
There have been reports that the entire content of the game that will be coming in future including the full expansion packs and paid “season” content bumps will be available to the players for free.
“None of the existing content is required to access Shadowkeep,” one Bungie staffer said when explaining this retail model. “All expansions going forward will be simple and a la carte.” (The staffers also admitted that “pre-purchasing content wasn’t as cool as it could be,” referring specifically to the “season” content bumps being sold before their contents were advertised.)
Our news sources also reported that no “platform-exclusive” content would be featured this time by Destiny 2. Players who will purchase game’s future expansions and season packs on a particular platform will see the same gear, missions, multiplayer levels, and more on others too.
