Bungie explains their new Destiny 2 free-to-play model in the interview

destiny 2 is free

Back in February 2018, things seemed not so good for Bungie. Destiny 2 had gone from being one of the most popular video games of the generation to a monumental dud. Before the break up, in the event you needed to play the newest Destiny 2 enlargement you’d have to purchase all of the earlier content material as properly. The loot wasn’t that cool, there wasn’t a lot to do, the first two major expansions managed to disappoint, and even though shooting felt good, the lack of weapon loadout variety and inability to pull off clutch plays held the game back.

Destiny 2 For Free

Bungie hasn’t ever been comfy with all these things above, so now, here we are, with Destiny 2: New Light is free to play. Why have they done it in that way, Bungie’s Scott Taylor detailed in the interview:

“On Forsaken [Destiny 2’s last expansion] we were really frustrated that you had to play all the other content to even buy it,” Taylor said. “One of the things that we’re doing with [upcoming expansion] Shadowkeep is we’re making it so that anyone who downloads New Light, which doesn’t cost anything on any of the platforms, and if they get excited about something in New Light, or a season, they can just kind of opt into that content.”

“The kinds of things that are changing now is that we are looking at ways that we can… for instance, on Forsaken we were really frustrated that you had to play all the other content to even buy it. So one of the things that we’re doing with Shadowkeep is we’re making it so that anyone who downloads New Light, which doesn’t cost anything on any of the platforms, and if they get excited about something in New Light, or a season, they can just kind of opt into that content. So it’s like the way the industry and the way our players are evolving is making us look at the kinds of games we make, and then that’s the thing that’s pivoting us into those new directions.”

The major Destiny 2 changes are scheduled to September 17, and gamers will be able to move their Battle.net account to Steam in some unspecified time in the future before that date.
