Like the original Destiny the payment model for Destiny 2 as extensions may be quite confusing to new players. It's the base game, the first expansion card contains two relatively small DLC, and the big extension Forsaken that launches September 4 for $ 40 to existing players. Fortunately, Activision releases an extensive package called Destiny 2: Forsaken ̵
Available for $ 60 includes the legendary edition base game, curse of Osiris Warmind and Forsaken . For those who speak, Activision basically gives away the base game for free, since Curse of Osiris and Warmind are packed for $ 20 and The Cause costs $ 40. The new bundle explains why copies of the basic game can now be purchased for $ 6 on Amazon. It is important to note that both the basic game and the first expansion card are necessary to play Cause . So, if you're new to Destiny 2 Legendary Edition is your best bet.
If you buy a digital version of Legendary Edition, you can start playing Destiny 2 and the first two extensions before launch. After the exercise that was implemented in Destiny s The Taken King you can also get a level boot from the jump to start playing the Forsaken mission at the launch. For those who own Destiny 2 already, but none of the extensions, you can always buy the legendary edition and give your copy of the base game to a friend.
The legendary edition, however, is not completely future proof of your Destiny 2 experience. It does not come with Annual Pass, a new $ 35 DLC that will add new challenges, activities, weapons and armor over three content drops that start later this year. The year pass seems to appeal mainly to hardcore Destiny 2 players, so if you only want to experience the history and game world, Legendary Edition should be more than enough. If you want to splurge, you can buy Complete Edition for $ 100 which includes everything Destiny 2 has to offer, including the Annual Pass.
Current Destiny 2 Players Already Own The first two extensions can either buy Forsaken as a stand-alone DLC or combined with Annual Pass for $ 70. You save $ 5 on the bundled route.
