Destiny 2: Shadowkeep (Bungie) – October 1
Destiny 2: New Light (Bungie) – October 1
I’ve decided to combine both these titles into one so as to better explain them. Shadowkeep is the new Destiny 2 expansion that takes place on the Moon… because the Moon is haunted.
I digress. Anyway, Shadowkeep will move the story forward with new adventures, raids, and activities. It’s technically Destiny 2’s “Year 3” content.
As for Destiny 2: New Light, this is the free-to-play version of the game that will also launch on the same day. New Light will contain “Year 1” content — vanilla, Curse of Osiris, and Warmind. Some “Year 2” (Forsaken) and “Year 3” (Shadowkeep) content will be included such as Gambit Prime and free-roaming on the Moon world space respectively.
Those who purchase Shadowkeep will, naturally, have access to New Light content already. Those who are playing the free-to-play New Light version will still need to purchase Forsaken and/or Shadowkeep if they want to play the additional content.
