PS Plus September Freebie Destiny 2 Available Now On PS4 In Time For Forsaken Gambit Trial
Destiny 2 is free for PS Plus members right now.
In an unusual move, Sony has released one of September's free PlayStation Plus games on PS4 early. Rather than wait for the first Tuesday of the month as usual (September 4, in this case), Sony has both announced the full lineup and offered one of the games for free right away: Destiny 2, which just got a massive pre-DLC update.
It's a clever move, as Destiny 2's next big expansion, Forsaken, releases on September 4. While you'll need to purchase that DLC (along with the previous ones) to get the most out of the game, you can see what it's like and begin to get caught up so you can dive into the new expansion next week. Given that Forsaken has been positioned as the equivalent of the first Destiny's excellent Taken King DLC, that's an enticing proposition.
Further making this timing work out well is the upcoming Gambit trial. Gambit is the signature new mode in Forsaken, offering a blend of PvP and PvE. Ahead of Forsaken's launch, all Destiny 2 players will be able to try Gambit out for 24 hours on September 1. Although you won't be getting the same rewards you will once Forsaken is out, you can at least get a taste for what the mode is all about. Bear in mind you'll need to purchase the existing DLC to jump into Forsaken, which you'll also need to buy.

This PS Plus release comes just a day after the launch of a massive 2.0 update for Destiny 2. This overhauls the weapon slot system and numerous other areas of the game. Bungie has also shared a roadmap for the DLC and free updates coming in the year after Forsaken's launch.
Joining Destiny 2 in September as a PS Plus freebie on PS4 is God of War III: Remastered. PS4 actually gets a total of six new games, as both PS3 games (Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition and Qube: Director's Cut) and Vita games (Sparkle 2 and Foul Play) support Cross-Buy.
