What you need to know

  • Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter from Bungie.

  • You can purchase Destiny 2: Shadowkeep through the Microsoft Store.

Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie. While the first game wasn't well-received, the sequel fixes a lot of the problems that plagued the original.

Now that Bungie isn't working with Activision, it looks like the team is changing its business model to make future content more accessible. Going forward, each Season will cost $10 and come with its own Artifact. However, those gamers who bought the Forsaken expansion will get the Year 2 Annual Pass for free on September 17. This means that you'll get access to even more content when Shadowkeep launches in October.
