Bungie Lets Google Officially Reveal The Next Destiny 2 Expansion

Bungie gave Google the go-ahead to reveal the next big chapter in Destiny 2, Shadowkeep, a standalone DLC that will be on Stadia.

Bungie got ahead of E3 with their announcement regarding the new Destiny 2 expansion, letting Google take care of the reveal in its first Stadia Connect.

Google has let us in on the Stadia deets, which you could check out here. And, during their announcement, it was revealed that Destiny 2 will be one of the games available upon launch.

Subscribers will be able to play the full game, plus all of the previous expansions such as Forsaken and Curse of Osiris. And the upcoming Shadowkeep will be available on there as well. The expansion's trailer was actually part of Google's big announcement, and the expansion will be Bungie's first publish without former partners Activision.

Details over the DLC had already leaked prior to Google's reveal, so it wasn't that huge of a surprise, with a datamine having given us enough details to know what to expect.

The expansion is available for preorder and is the first standalone pack Bungie has ever produced. That means you won't have to own the previous expansions to play it. Also, it's a bit of an a la carte addition so you will have the option of paying for whatever parts you reckon you'll be happy playing. Shadowkeep is set to launch on September 17 and a single season pass will come alongside for a total of $34.99.

Where Stadia is concerned, you won't have to worry about losing your progress or starting over as there's a cross-save function that allows you to get your Guardian to Google from any console. However, you won't be able to get on a console and play with or against PC players with cross-play support.

Given that they're no longer partnered with Activision, Bungie won't be publishing the PC version of the game through Battle.net anymore, you will have to head over to Steam to get it. Current PC players will be able to take all of their progress along to the Steam version when it releases along with Shadowkeep.

Meanwhile, Bungie is also launching a free-to-play version of Destiny 2 for PC called New Light. They say it will include all of the main game's foundational modes, activities and rewards.
