The third year of Destiny 2 heralds with the new expansion Shadowkeep, in this country fortress of shadows. At the same time, with the release of the expansion, the eighth season - the season of the immortal - starts in Destiny 2. And it gets even better: Destiny should win many new players, because the main game will be converted to a free-2-play version. “New Light” will be available for free from October 1st on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Then Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will also appear and bring many innovations.
Reboot could make Destiny 2 the best free-2-play game out there
With the start of “New Light”, the paid content primarily includes:
- Premium rewards of the seasons
- Story campaign from both major expansions
- Raids from Forsaken, Shadowkeep and the annual pass
- New content like the Vex Invasion
- New quests for exotic weapons
- High level nightmare hunts and raid challenges
If you play the free version of Destiny 2, you can also earn seasonal rewards. With the release of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Season 8 starts, as is well known, where F2P players can get some rewards. To get in the mood for the brand new content, the free version also includes the introductory mission to the new Shadowkeep expansion.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is getting big
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be a real chunk of content, not as extensive as Forsaken, but larger than the first two DLCs. According to Luke Smith, the size of the new expansion should be roughly on par with “The Iron Lords” from the first part.
Shadowkeep drives the story of Eris Morn forward: The crowd connoisseur experiences nightmares and thus calls forces on the plan that haunt the moon. This is already noticeable in the external appearance of the celestial body - green ravines tear open the surface everywhere and the red fortress that gives it its name appears. The darkness is here - and more present and dangerous than ever before.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep also brings a lot of new challenges, including the one new raid “Garden of Redemption”, in which six players visit the scene with the black garden that is already known from the first Destiny. The alternative reality of the Vex should be a lot nicer and will probably become a central starting point for the expansion for many players. Another new one is Dungeon for a trio of players.
The nightmare hunts, which are intended to entertain in the endgame of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, are also aimed at a troop of three players. There are three different levels of difficulty, each with their own modifications, and it's all about rewards. As part of this mode, there is a matchmaking system on the two lower levels. If you want to play “Legend”, you have to prepare a team. There will also be a subdivision for the Nightfall Strikes: Adept (LL 750), Hero (LL 920), Legend (LL 950) and Master with a recommended light level of 980.
Good prospects for October and November
Those who want to get very close to the enemy will be happy to practice the nine finishing moves that are introduced into the game with Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. Enemies with little life energy can be hit particularly spectacularly on the virtual pines with the help of the attacks: For successful moves there are then bonuses, depending on the chosen orientation - such as energy for super attacks, life energy or ammunition.
However, Bungie has made slight changes to PvP. Some maps have been removed from matchmaking and the modes have been adapted. A new ranking system with fame ranks could be particularly interesting because the skill rating has a high influence on the awarding of points.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be released on 1. October for PC-Steam, Xbox One and Playstation 4. The raid opens according to the roadmap to Destiny 2 on 5. October, from 8. October heroic and legendary nightmare hunts are then on the agenda. The hunts in Grand Master mode are even more difficult 15. October, then Eisenbanner also starts. The exotic quest chain for the heavy bow begins a week later, on 22. October, shortly before the end of the month, the three-player dungeon raid opens and the PvP mode “Momentum Control” begins - as does an exotic series of quests.
Contents are even known for November: Am 5. November starts the raid challenge on 19. November then the Vex “Last Attack” offensive.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep costs 34,99 euros in the standard version and 59,99 euros in the deluxe version. There will also be a Collector's Edition: at a proud price of 159,99 euros. Without a game, the collector's item costs 94,99 euros. Those who still had hope will be disappointed: The collector's edition is already sold out at Bungie - perhaps because physical goodies always attract fans particularly well.
