You can now play one of the biggest game releases of the year for free, mostly. Starting today Activision and Bungie are offering a Free Trial for Destiny 2 across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
There’s no time limit for the Free Trial, but there are some content restrictions. You can only access missions within the European Dead Zone and Titan zones. Competitive matches are limited to Crucible Quickplay. Finally you can only advance up to level 7.
Any progress you make, including loot, experience, and clan experience, will carry over to your account should you decide to purchase the full game.
Destiny 2 is currently on sale for $38.99 (PC Battle.net), and $41.99 (PlayStation Store).
The first expansion pack for Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris was recently revealed. It’s coming next week on December 5 across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Curse of Osiris will add the new Mercury zone, new campaign missions, crucible maps, and strikes. It will also raise the level cap to 25.
Destiny 2 is currently embroiled in its own controversy regarding end-game experience. Apparently rewards were giving out less experience than they should have, and many players were grumbling that it was designed to steer them towards purchasing loot boxes. Bungie responded, admitting that events that could be played quickly (‘farmed’) were scaling down the experience rewards while hiding the actual numbers. They are deactivating this XP-scaling system.
The Destiny 2 Free Trial begins today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s rated T for Teen.
