It looks like Bungie won’t have many surprises left when they have their livestream at 6pm tonight, Shadowkeep has leaked along with the news the game is going to be on Google Stadia. They’re also going to be a bit annoyed with Engadget as they pressed the publish button a little early on some more news which was quickly deleted, but got fed into RSS feeds which they can’t control.
According to the article, Destiny 2 is going free-to-play on September 17th, the same day that Shadowkeep launches. The new free, core game will be called Destiny 2: New Light and it will include all the content from year one of the game include “foundational modes, activities and rewards.”
Destiny 2 will move away from season passes and will now offer “à la carte” DLC which does not require previous DLC packs, Shadowkeep being the first. However, they also report they will be ending any platform exclusive deals, the last of which saw PlayStation owners get extra strikes and weapons.
Engadget also confirm that the game will support cross-save and this will be available to those playing on PC, Xbox One, and Stadia, but not PlayStation 4. The game will also be heading to Steam for the first time and you will be be able to migrate over to the platform for free.
The Shadowkeep expansion leaked earlier and finds Guardians heading back to the moon, one of the favourite destinations in the original game.
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.
It will include a new raid, a new dungeon, new weapons and gear, and probably a tiny bit of graffiti scrawled on a wall saying rude things about Engadget.
