Destiny 2: Forsaken up for digital preorder on Xbox One

Destiny 2 has had its fair share of highs and lows over the past year. The original game was enjoyed by many, but the fact that the "Curse of Osiris" expansion placed a lot of content behind a paywall didn't go well with users. While the latest "Warmind" expansion tried to correct that, the new content wasn't as appealing to longtime players. Recently, Bungie announced the "Forsaken" expansion which should hopefully add a slew of new activities to the game and bring fans back.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is now available for digital preorder on the Microsoft Store. Oddly enough, only the PlayStation 4 digital codes are available on Amazon at the moment. You can purchase the expansion for $39.99 or pay $69.99 for the expansion and the "Annual Pass". Alongside seasonal updates and live events available to every Destiny 2 player, the Annual Pass provides bonus rewards and introduces three premium content releases.

Forsaken is the first major expansion to Destiny 2 and launches on September 4, 2018. With two new destinations to explore, and new weapons, armor and "Super" abilities to acquire, the download takes players on an epic journey into the wild frontiers of our solar system where the lines between justice and revenge are blurred.

Forsaken also features a new competitive and collaborative endgame activity called "Gambit". Gambit is a new, hybrid four-vs-four mode that merges both player vs. enemy and player vs. player experiences into an epic battle. This entirely new way to play Destiny 2 should offer enjoyment for all types of gamers. Forsaken also brings a new weapon slot system, "Random Rolls", improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements.
