Destiny 2 'Shadowkeep' goes up for preorder, eliminates PlayStation 4 exclusives

What you need to know

  • Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter from Bungie.
  • The game is getting a new expansion in September.
  • The "Shadowkeep" expansion takes you to the Moon.
  • You can preorder it for $35 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

A few days ago, Bungie announced that the next major expansion for Destiny 2 would be revealed close to E3 2019. Unfortunately, as is tradition at the point, the game leaked ahead of its reveal. Recently, some dataminers on ResetEra were able to find a promotional image for "Shadowkeep" in Destiny 2's PC files.

The Shadowkeep expansion takes players to the Moon and is scheduled to launch on September 17. On that day, the game will also get cross-save functionality and much more. You should be able to preorder the game on Xbox One and other platforms right now, even though it comes out many months from now. A physical collector's edition with some enticing collectibles should also be available for preorder at the same time.

New nightmares have emerged from the shadows of our Moon. Called forth by haunting visions, Eris Morn has returned. Join her to slay these nightmares before they reach out beyond the Moon to cast humanity back into an age of darkness.

The base Shadowkeep experience starts at $35. However, if you want to get access to deluxe content and the past content, you can purchase a $60 bundle. The price seems a little steep, but it's what we've come to expect from the company over the years. Are you interested in continuing your journey in Destiny 2? Let us know.

  • I stopped playing Destiny 2 after the Forsaken DLC story. If they had left the mechanics alone the way they were in Warming, I still would have been playing. I don't mind putting in effort to better my guardians but after the "tweaks" they did to LVLing ones gear and all, I burned out extremely fast. But I miss the moon, I miss how dark it was. Lonely, desolate, and sinister we're understatements for me in the first game. Wonder if we still get to go down the same dark portal that we did when we went after Crota. Curious as to what's to change in the coming days...
