Destiny 2: Forsaken DLC Release Date And Pre-Order Guide (US)


@destinyplayers
Developer Bungie has finally revealed Destiny 2’s big year-two expansion. It’s called Forsaken, and it launches on September 4. Just like The Taken King for the original Destiny, Forsaken is a standalone expansion you’ll have to buy separately even if you purchased Destiny 2’s expansion pass. In fact, you can even buy a new “annual pass” to pre-order three additional content releases that will come out after Destiny 2: Forsaken.

Forsaken’s story will bring players back to the Reef to fight off a group of powerful enemies who broke out of prison. The expansion also introduces a number of changes to Destiny 2, including a new mode called Gambit, as well as major changes to weapons, mods, and Masterworks. The idea is to keep players coming back once they’ve reached the endgame.

If you’re ready to pre-order Destiny 2: Forsaken, you’ll probably want to know what your options are. We’ve gathered all the info you need below.

I think i might just get the Forsaken DLC. Even that for 40$ is a bit hard for me to swallow for DLC. Knowing that this is no ESO size expansion.

I’m a numbers guy and a Destiny guy. To help out those of you that don’t have D2 or all of D2 (which you will need to own in order to play forsaken) and have been concerned about the cost of getting into forsaken when is launches 9/4. The article above suggests that you can get all the “missing” content for as little as $8 if you order on amazon prime. The Destiny 2: Forsaken Legendary Collection above is priced at $60/48 and the price of the Destiny 2: Forsaken Standard Edition is $40 so that’s a price difference of $8-20 …so suck it up buttercup and get you butt in D2 :wink:
