Destiny 2 goes free for PC players until November 18

Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter which takes you all over the solar system. Players have to repel an assault on The Last City and stop the Red Legion from destroying the Sun. The title features artwork-like visuals and recently received its largest expansion yet.

Today, Activision announced that Destiny 2 is going free until November 18, 2018. The company said, "We're celebrating Destiny's first year on Blizzard Battle.net with a free digital copy of Destiny 2 on PC." Note that this is the base game, and doesn't include the "Forsaken" expansion which adds a new campaign to the title.

Since Activision is essentially giving away the base game for free with the Forsaken expansion, this deal seems more like marketing. However, if you haven't played Destiny 2 and want to give it a go on PC, now's your chance! Will you check out the game now that's it doesn't cost a dime? Let us know.

Unfortunately, the majority of content is now locked behind the Forsaken expansion. You won't be able to attain Power Level 600 or accumulate the new gear if you don't pay for the new content. Significant features like the brilliant new Raid and Strikes also won't be accessible. In our review, we said, "Forsaken is a worthy expansion to Destiny 2, and the best supplemental content the developer has ever released in the franchise due to the amount of activities."

  • For free, maybe I'll give it a try.
  • does this include the other expansions before Forsaken?
  • Just the base game. No DLC.
  • I'm glad I didn't purchase the new DLC and deleted the game from my Xbox.
    Bungie sure does seem to hate Xbox, so never again will you get money from me Bungie.
  • Well, the original Destiny was a real disappointment. I just couldn't get into the game play, even though I am an FPS-only fan. Am I missing something about Destiny 2, it seems like it's third-person.
  • It's worth the download now that it's free. I got it cheap in a humble bundle a while back, I didn't mind it. But it does get repetitive pretty quick.
  • Still a scam even if its free. I'll only download it when they pay me some to do so.
