Xbox Game Pass Adds Destiny 2 Expansions Forsaken And Shadowkeep

The two major expansions for Destiny 2 are now on Game Pass, and the third will follow at launch.

4 Comments

Destiny 2 has just expanded greatly for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. The game's two major expansions, Forsaken and Shadowkeep, are both available now for subscribers on Xbox One, making the core Destiny 2 experience a part of Game Pass.

The two expansions add new story missions, planets, weapons, and much more to Destiny 2, and let you level up your guardians to a much higher Light level. If you've only dabbled in Destiny 2, these expansions will let you dive deep.

Destiny 2 went free-to-play some time ago, but these expansions have cost money since they launched. The next expansion, Beyond Light, will also be available on Game Pass on the day of its release, November 10.

The game will fundamentally change with the release of this expansion, with several planets and activities being removed when it arrives. Destiny 2's file size will shrink greatly, but you'll need to re-download it in full.

Since Destiny 2 features cross-save, Xbox Game Pass subscribers who have played the game elsewhere might want to migrate over to Xbox if they have not played the expansions yet--or if they don't want to pay extra for Beyond Light when it releases.

We reviewed Forsaken and Shadowkeep, and both received an 8/10. Check out both reviews below.

In other big Xbox Game Pass news, Microsoft has bought Bethesda--and all of its upcoming games will go right to Game Pass.

Yeah this was reported a few months back. Only console game pass will have Beyond Light at launch. I remember looking on some xbox forums a while back, and it was said that it will come to Ultimate (PC) game pass some time after launch.

This was probably Bungies doing. Oh well.

My guess is that it will come to Ultimate sometime around e3 next year.

If you still play Destiny (as i do, and have since D1 beta) I would personally wait (if you can) until "Black Friday" this year (Which is only like 2 weeks after the Nov. 10th release) Chances are, You'll save a lot.

I take breaks in between shitty "seasons" of Destiny, Last year i decided to get back into Destiny, Luckily "Black Friday" was only a few days away, so i waited... and i got "Shadowkeep Deluxe Edition" (which came with "Shadowkeep" and the annual/season pass, all 4 seasons) for $18 (marked down from like $70)

My new way of buying expansions from Bungie is to definitely buy the annual, BIG update (usually every September... November this year) Those expansions have always been the biggest upgrades to the game. And as for the "Season Passes" those will be bought individually, on a case by case base, meaning... I will watching YT videos on reviews of each season, and if i like what its offering, I'll buy that, particular season

Bungie isn't going to catch me anymore on this shitty, "Build a tower for PVP players" shit

So either buy at heavily, discounted prices (usually around black friday) or buy smart, and wait until you see reviews (you should only have to do this with season pass content) The Big expansion (every September) thats a pretty "worry free" purchase for any, actual Destiny player (not a casual player, that just happens to come back to see if they game has "got any better")
