Destiny 2 heralds the third year with the new extension Shadowkeep, a fortress of shadows in this country. At the same time, the eighth season - the season of the immortal - starts in Destiny 2 with the release of the expansion. And it gets even better: Destiny should gain many new players, because the main game will be switched to a free-2-play variant. New Light will be available for free on PC, PS1 and Xbox One on October 4st. 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 includes in particular:
- 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 bigger than the first two DLCs. According to Luke Smith, the size of the new expansion should be about the same as "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 Salvation", in which six players visit the black garden with the location that is already known from the first Destiny. The alternate reality of the Vex is said to be much prettier and will likely be one of the focal points of the expansion for many players. Also new is a Dungeon for a trio of players.
Also geared towards a squad of three players are the Nightmare Hunts, intended to entertain in the endgame of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. In three different levels of difficulty, each with its own modifications, it's all about rewards. In this mode, there is a matchmaking system at 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 well as an exotic quest line.
Contents are even known for November: Am 5. November starts the raid challenge on 19. November then the Vex offensive "Last Strike".

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.
