- And another big one: Destiny 2: New Light will also be available in September.
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.
Finally, Bungie has also stated that their will be no more exclusive weapons, events, or cosmetics from this point, which is just music to our ears.
Activities such as raids in Forsaken will still need to be unlocked, and you will eventually need to buy the Forsaken expansion if you wish to continue playing the content or to participate in Raids, Exotic Quests, Strikes and dungeons.
It appears that Engadget has spoiled Activision's surprise regarding Destiny 2. Any player who doesn't already own the core game can download and play the New Light version for free.
According to the report, Destiny 2 is set to be one of the major launch titles for Google's upcoming streaming service and game-changing on-demand platform Stadia.
Players will be able to transfer their saves to any platform of their choice when Cross-Save features goes live in the game closer to the launch of Shadowkeep.
Destiny 2 is getting a free-to-play version, and it's shifting over to Steam, Bungie announced alongside the revelation of a new expansion (and cross-save functionality, to boot).
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. If you're new to the franchise, you won't have to worry about going through hours upon hours of past content just to catch up with your friends. Once you finish the initial missions, you'll fast forward to Destiny 2, where every world and mission will be open to you. In the meantime, there will no longer be an exclusivity window on PlayStation 4 - all content will arrive on all platforms at the same time.
