Today comes the big Destiny 2 news that many have been waiting for since it was announced that Bungie had parted ways with Activision. First up, the core game alongside all Year 1 content is going free-to-play with the release of Destiny 2: New Light. The rebranding and re-launch, with the game moving on PC from Battle.net to Steam, will coincide with the next standalone expansion Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
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. Also, Bungie confirms that cross-save support is coming to all platforms with players able to play across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and pick up where they left off. According to Bungie this is a feature the team has been wanting to implement since before the release of the base game.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is scheduled for release on September 17 and will take players back to the Earth's Moon. Here's the cinematic trailer.
New Nightmares have emerged from the shadows of our forgotten Moon. Called forth by haunting visions from her tormented past, Eris Morn has returned and unleashed something that once slumbered beneath the lunar surface – a long dormant power even she cannot control.
Return to the Moon. Journey deep into a mysterious enemy citadel. Help Eris slay these nightmares before they reach out beyond the Moon to cast humanity back into an age of darkness.
No doubt this is a major shake-up for the franchise and one that we'll be keeping a close eye on. Destiny 2 has also been confirmed as coming to Google Stadia. For more info, be sure to watch the new documentary short released by Bungie - here.
