Which version of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep should you buy?
Season pass content is coming
With the complete overhaul coming to Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Bungie has changed the way its expansions will work going forward. They're now called Seasons and players will be getting them every few months. The first one, the Season of the Undying, is available with every purchase of Shadowkeep and involves a lot of Vex story missions.
Each Season pass is likely to cost somewhere between $10-$15, and there will be a total of four seasons each year. The Deluxe edition of Shadowkeep comes with all four season passes for the next year, as well as three exotic emotes for your Guardian, making it a great deal despite the higher price. It'll save you money compared to just buying the base expansion and getting each Season individually.
Thinking of coming back?
If you are new to Destiny 2 and don't want to commit to entire years worth of content that's OK; the base Shadowkeep expansion has the season content for October through December and is just $35.
You will get to try all the latest features, including the new armor system and the Moon play area in the base expansion, as well as the Vex Raid when it arrives, so you will have an excellent idea of what to expect moving forward. Then, if you do decide to move forward, you can purchase the season passes individually.
Ready for the year
The deluxe edition of Shadowkeep has everything you need to keep you in brand new content for the next year. Best to stock up now to save money.
No really, Moons haunted
Nightmares are born
Shadowkeep is the start of a whole new chapter for the team at Bungie. Expect huge new bosses, new raids, new moves, and so many new weapons and armor.
