Since the game's initial release in 2017, Destiny 2 has gotten plenty of DLCs on an annual basis. These expansions add plenty of quality content to the space fantasy looter shooter, but since older DLCs cost $25-30 and newer ones are typically around $40-50, it's not exactly cheap to catch up to longtime Destiny 2 players. You're in luck if you play the game on Xbox or on Windows PC through the Xbox app, though, because from now until May 29, every piece of the game's DLC is on sale for massive discounts on the Microsoft Store. 

Currently, you can snag every old expansion for 50% off or more, and the latest one, Destiny 2: Lightfall, is even available for 40% off. In total, you could pick up Destiny 2's full content suite — including this year's upcoming Season Passes and dungeons — for only $115. When you consider the sheer amount of playable content you're getting for one of the best Xbox games, that's a pretty incredible bargain.

While you could buy the older Destiny 2 expansions individually, you'll save some money by purchasing the Legacy Collection, so that's what I recommend doing unless you already own some of them. Note that the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack and Forsaken Pack aren't included in it, so you'll need to buy them separately.

If you're only able to get one DLC, I'd recommend going with Lightfall, as since it's the current expansion, its content is the most relevant. If possible, get the Annual Pass edition so you get a discount on the Season 21-23 Season Passes and dungeons as well.

Overall, you should definitely get all of these DLCs now if you've been hoping to go beyond Destiny 2's free-to-play offerings since they don't go on sale too often. By doing so, you'll ensure that no part of the game is inaccessible to you, allowing you to catch up on the overall story and build up your arsenal without restrictions.
