Destiny 2 second year costs $70 - here’s everything that includes

destiny 2 forsaken price annual pass

Destiny 2’s Forsaken DLC is the game’s first big expansion, taking up the fall slot that typically holds Destiny’s most substantial additions. With a new raid, new enemies, a new mode, and plenty more, Forsaken looks like it’ll live up to that precedent - and like those previous big expansions, it’ll be a fair bit pricier than its less substantial counterparts.

Forsaken will launch on September 4 for $39.99 / £34.99, or you can combine your purchase with the Annual Pass for $69.99 / £59.99. Pre-orders of any version will net you Cayde’s Exotic Stash, with an exotic ornament, ship, and standoff emote, as well as the “Shades of Cayde-6” armor shader set.

Keep your guns ready for the best FPS games on PC.

If you really want to get spendy, you can opt to pay even more for the Digital Deluxe $79.99 / £69.99, which offers Forsaken, the Annual Pass, and the Awoken Legend Set, including a unique bow ornament, emblem, and Ghost shell.

The new Annual Pass works a bit different from the previous Expansion Pass. This will provide three expansions over the course of the year, each of which will be a bit smaller than either Curse of Osiris or Warmind. Bungie says the focus here is less on cutscenes and cinematics, and more about the action and acquisition of power, with new endgame challenges and high-level items to collect.

The three expansions are Black Armory in winter 2018, Joker’s Wild in spring 2019, and Penumbra in summer 2019. Across the three add-ons, there’ll be new weapons, armor, and vanity items, new (and old) exotics, new pinnacle activities, and (despite not focusing on story) some amount of lore to uncover.

Additionally, the launch of Forsaken will also mean that the previously PlayStation-exclusive content for the game will now be available on all platforms, though PS4 players will have another round of exclusive stuff - a strike, new gear sets for each class, a new ship, and an exotic weapon - to keep for themselves until that exclusivity runs out again.

The Forsaken release date is set for September 4, kicking off Destiny 2’s second year with new features like Gambit mode, a raid in the Dreaming City, and a long-awaited rework for the weapon slot system. Bungie promises more details on Forsaken’s story and missions at E3.

Three expansions over the course of a year that each are smaller than the abysmally small Warmind and Curse of Osiris does not bode well for the game.

While i'll agree there small additions, they only work out at £5 each, so you get what you pay for i suppose...

Any chance you can explain the maths that lead to a £5 each claim? It might be cause it's early, but i can make no sense of that claim.

Well the next expansion is £35, there is 3 smaller dlc's after that that cost a combined

£25, so there £8 each, so i was just a little off.

I will say in there defence that the Forsaken dlc is pretty big, so that's why is costs the same as a stand alone game.

Im not hear to judge if its worth it or not, but if you play the game like me and have sunk hundreds of hours into it,then its worth it. If you're not fussed either way then there's no reason to get it, they are updating the base game and adding content to that,so its a win win either way...

Destiny 2's upfront cash grab followed by disappointment, lies and community outrage shall continue.
