Now might be the best time to jump on buying Destiny 2 ahead of the Shadowkeep expansion this October. Destiny 2: Forsaken Complete Collection, which contains the entirety of Destiny 2's content up to this point, is on a deep discount on every platform. There are a few things to consider before making the purchase, but this is likely to be the best deal on Year 1 and Year 2 content.
Destiny 2: Forsaken Complete Collection is on sale by 60% on Battle.net, the PlayStation Store, and the Xbox One Store, down from $99.99 to $39.99 US. The contents of this edition specifically include:
- Destiny 2 base game
- Expansion I: Curse of Osiris
- Expansion II: Warmind
- Destiny 2: Forsaken
- Forsaken Annual Pass (containing content from Black Armory, Season of the Drifter, and Season of Opulence)
- The Awoken Legend Set (Wrath Majestic Legendary Bow Ornament, Dirge Paladin Emblem, Vestian Ghost Shell)
This is a great time for anyone who wants to get access to all of Destiny 2's content to do so at a low price. Owning this edition will allow players to fully prepare before the release of the Shadowkeep expansion, collecting all of Year 2's special exotics and gear ahead of Shadowkeep. This will instantly bring players up to speed with all the content available if they so choose.
This sale is also a good opportunity for anyone who is going to take advantage of the new Cross Play function and play Destiny 2 across multiple platforms. That's because even though characters and gear transfer between platforms, the license to play the game does not, so players will have to own Destiny 2 and any expansions they want to play on each platform. This deal allows those players to prep their alternate or future platform with all the content they have had on their platform of choice up to this point.
Lastly, the players who probably want to think twice about buying the Complete Collection are those who are only interested in jumping into the game with Shadowkeep and moving forward from there. With the launch of Destiny 2: New Light, all of Year 1's content (that is, everything prior to Forsaken) plus Gambit and access to destinations will be made completely free to play. And with Bungie's plan to offer season's and expansions completely a la carte, there may not be any reason for some players to buy this edition of the game.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
