Destiny 2 coming to Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft leveraged the just concluded Xbox Games Showcase to show off a bunch of new titles optimized for Xbox Series X. One of the event’s most exciting announcements is that Destiny 2 will be available on Xbox Game Pass starting this September.

Destiny 2 is coming to Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft and Bungie announced that they’re working together to bring you Destiny 2 on Xbox Game Pass.

If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you should be able to play the game at no extra costs starting September. But the deal involves more than just the base game. That’s because it also offers all existing standard edition expansions for free.

However, premium seasonal content isn’t part of the free package.

After launching on November 10, the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion will be available to Game Pass subscribers for free. Bungie had originally planned to release it on September 22, 2020. But the video game developer pushed the launch date back to November, citing COVID-19 related obstacles.

With the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, you’ll get an opportunity to join fellow Guardians and venture out into the Darkness.

Europa is where all the action takes place, and you’re allowed to exterminate the enemy at all costs, including using the darkest of weapons possible.  Plus, you’ll get to use a new powerful weapon—Stasis.

All this should be music to your ears if you’re a Beyond Light fan on Xbox One.

However, subscribers of Xbox Game Pass for PC have to wait until 2021 when Microsoft and Bungie plan on releasing the standard expansion for the platform.

Microsoft already included Destiny 2 in the list of Xbox Series X ready titles. This means that the game supports the next-gen console’s ground-breaking graphics and gameplay tech like ray-tracing.
