Destiny 2 is releasing their latest expansion Shadowkeep on Tuesday October 1st. There are a few things players should know before this.
The game will be down for maintainence today, Monday September 30th, for 24 hours. This is to prepare for the move over to Steam and for the launch of Shadowkeep.
From Battle.net to Steam
Remember that you will no longer be able to play via the Battle.net launcher, it will only be available on Steam. If you have not already moved your account over from Battle.net to Steam, you can link your account on Bungie’s website.
Bright Dust changes
Bright dust can no longer be acquired by breaking down Eververse items starting October 1st- they will now break down into legendary shards.
Also, break down any unused mods, they’re permanent with the new update, so you only need one of each.
New Light releases
New Light is the free-to-play version of Destiny 2, meaning that if you’ve been on the fence about playing, jump in! The base game, and all campaigns through Forsaken will be included. Worlds will be unlocked via experience, not campaign progress, with this update.
Pre-load to get a head start
You can pre-load the game on Steam now to get ready for launch tomorrow. It’s almost 80 GB, so free up some space on your drive if you need to.
That’s all, looking forward to seeing new Guardians and returning veterans!
