Yesterday, during Destiny 2’s dedicated stream, Bungie has finally revealed previously leaked expansion for the game called Shadowkeep. The expansion features a lot of new content for the game coming in the form of the Moon.
However, with Shadowkeep another fancy feature called New Light was announced. Essentially it is a free-to-play version of the game that allows you to create a new guardian and play through the base game and Destiny 2’s Year One campaign content including Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansions.
With freshly regained freedom from Activision-Blizzard, Bungie is also bringing Destiny 2 to the most popular PC market which is Steam. The game will migrate to Steam with the release of Shadowkeep, but the progress you’ve reached playing through Battle.Net will be saved.
Destiny 2 originally launched in September 2017 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and a month later made its debut on PC, via Battle.net. It was the first non-Blizzard title to grace the platform. However, the deal with Activision Blizzard is now over and that means the end of Destiny 2 on Battle.net.
According to Bungie all the twists and turns in Destiny 2 will start on September 17. This date marks the release of Shadokeep expansion, the start of Destiny 2: New Light and transition to the Steam platform. Congrats Bungie for going indie!
