Controversial move by Bungie. Destiny 2 will once again eliminate paid content permanently, as confirmed by the study itself through its website. From next February 22, The Forsaken paid campaign, and the Tangled Shore destination will become part of the ACD (Destiny Content Store). In other words, such content will not be accessible when the next expansion, The Witch Queen, hits the game.
The campaign of Forsaken continues to be sold, but will be playable for free from December 7 until its elimination in February 2022. Those who have purchased the product will receive a special bundle, which will also be available for purchase, which will include access to the Last Wish raid and The Shattered Throne dungeon and more.
What will be preserved and what will disappear?
While Dream City will remain online, the content of the season of year 4 and the exceptional missions Omen and Herald they will disappear, at least for the moment. “We are aware of the unique value of these definitive Destiny experiences, so we are looking to redesign them and create new special exceptional missions within Destiny 2 for the future,” they say.
The developers justify this decision by alluding to space problems, since this gap will allow them to “carry out the expansion The Witch Queen and her new destination Throne World”, As well as the rest of the materials related to this extension of the story. The ability to craft weapons and a new Legend difficulty option will be added to the campaign, not to mention Glaives, a previously unreleased weapon archetype. From February another four seasons pregnant with content will arrive.
The premiere of year 5 does not imply that everything released in year 4 disappears. Both the Demonstration Camp assault and the Battlegrounds activities will continue. “The existing Battlegrounds will be combined with the Raids in a new playlist called ‘Vanguard Operations’, which will be free to all players. In addition, the Warden of Nothing Assault will remain in the game and will be available for free to all players. Finally, Master Rahool will take over all the foreign exchange the Spider has been dealing with until now when the Tangled Coast enters the ACD at the Tower. “
Destiny 2 está disponible en PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5 y Google Stadia.
