Destiny 2 Expansion Packs Promotion

It’s one of the biggest games in the world, and Bungie and Epic Games have an appropriately giant celebration planned. Players can get a taste of everything Destiny 2 has to offer from August 23, 2022, until August 30, 2022. The free-to-play MMO’s three expansion packs are all unlocked and available to play for all players for a limited time. 

And for a limited time, you can grab the 30th Anniversary Pack for free. The 30th Anniversary Pack is a celebration of Bungie’s past. It includes a three-player dungeon inspired by treasure-hunting loot-cave adventurers, a game show hosted by a horse made of stars, and a collection of rewards that will pack your inventory with weapons and more. This offer ends on August 30 at 1 PM ET.

We’ll have an update to this post very soon, with details about Destiny 2’s next expansion, Lightfall, which you can pre-purchase right now.

Destiny 2 Lightfall

Destiny 2’s next major expansion, Lightfall, was just unveiled. The update arrives on February 28, 2023, and has a major new villain, a new destination, and a new Darkness power that will let players grapple their way across Neptune. 

At the forefront of the new expansion is the Witness. Not a lot is known about it thus far, but it’s served by Emperor Calus and his Shadow Legion. In Lightfall, Calus has invaded the city of Neomuna with his army. His upgraded new troops include Tormentors: scythe-wielding hulks that act like mini-bosses during battle. The city is a neon metropolis on Neptune that has remained hidden until now. Players will battle among towering buildings, aiding the Cloud Striders who guard the city.  

A new Darkness power, known as Strand, will enable players to wield several new abilities. A grappling ability is available to every class and will let players traverse across the world with newfound speed. Strand also provides fantasy-specific powers for each class: Warlocks are telekinetic sorcerers, Titans are untamed and wild, and Hunters are masters of movement and speed.  

You can pre-purchase Destiny 2 Lightfall right now on the Epic Games Store.
