Destiny 2 Annual Pass Adds New Content And Activities Through Summer 2019
Bungie announces a "new way" to deliver content in the PS4, Xbox One, and PC game.
Bungie's Destiny 2 Forsaken livestream revealed more than just what's coming in this fall's big DLC expansion. Beyond that, the developer announced a new paid offering for the game called the Annual Pass. This will include three updates, beginning with Black Armory in Winter 2018, followed by Joker's Wild in Spring 2019, and Penumbra in Summer 2019.
During the livestream, Bungie said this is a "new way for us to deliver content," with the idea being that Bungie will release content faster than before. Bungie has in the past been criticised for not releasing content fast enough and not making the end-game compelling enough.
To that end, Destiny 2's new content updates will add more endgame challenges, as well as new weapons, armor, and vanity rewards to collect. There will also be new and returning Exotics, along with new Pinnacle activities (which are said to be extra-challenging) and more Triumph records to collect. There will also be more lore to discover.
During the stream, Bungie community manager David Dague stressed again and again that the new Annual Pass content is not to be thought as being similar to Destiny 2's big expansions like Warmind and Forsaken.
Forsaken will cost $40 by itself, and Bungie will also sell a Forsaken + Annual Pass bundle for $70, which suggests that the Annual Pass will go for around $30 by itself. An $80 Digital Deluxe edition featuring Forsaken, the Annual Pass, and even more content will be available for $80.
