What you need to know

- Bungie released a launch trailer for the upcoming expansion.
- You can purchase Destiny 2: Shadowkeep through the Microsoft Store.
Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter that takes you all across the solar system. Unlike its prequel, this title tells a compelling story and features hundreds of hours of gameplay if you're addicted to loot and multiplayer.
A new expansion, called Shadowkeep, is coming out on October 1 and takes players to the Moon. Bungie, the game's developer, released a new launch trailer to tell gamers exactly what's in store for them in a few weeks.
Aside from the terrifying bosses, the focus appears to be on loot. There are a lot of new Exotic items to find and activities to take part in. Hopefully, the content will be engaging because the two expansions before Forsaken were quite the letdown.
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 which allows you to infinitely increase your power until the next Season.
A new chapter
Nightmares are coming
With the release of the Shadowkeep expansion, Destiny 2 starts a brand new chapter separate from Activision. This edition has a year's worth of content, too.
