Destiny 2 Free Trial Begins Tomorrow

Runtime: 0:30    Author: destinygame    Category: Trailers

Developer Bungie Activision are opening up Destiny 2 tomorrow with a free trial. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players will all have a chance to try out the studio’s latest entry in the sci-fi loot-shooter series.

From the video description:

So, you’re new to Destiny 2? Enjoy the free trial and jump into the cinematic campaign on your own or with friends. Want to battle other players? Enter the multiplayer arena and put your skills to the ultimate test. Carry over your progress from the trial with purchase of the full-game.

The free trial follows in the wake of controversial news for Destiny 2. Players discovered that XP was purposely being throttled, reducing the rate at which they’d earn end-game cosmetics. Bungie has since walked back on the design choice, but also implemented another one – doubling the required XP to level up.

Destiny 2’s free trial begins November 29. Player can download it through their console’s digital marketplace, or via Battle.net.

Pity about the terrible choice on how their micro transactions are being carried out... sigh...
(secretly slowing XP gain is just rude to say the least - and the "fix" still involves doubling the required XP to level...)

Bungie turned my Destiny disc into a nice shiny coaster when they forced me to chose between:
1. a paid DLC, or
2. not playing the game at all.
I really liked Destiny from the second I played the beta, so while I didn't want to chose option 2, I simply couldn't support them after they ripped off their own player base. I therefore refuse to waste my time with anything these burglars put out.

That’s how I felt after I got the taken king disc and then they had the last Rise of Iron DLC. I didn’t want to pay another $60 to stay “relevant”...

This is one of the rare occasions where it’s a good idea to buy the season pass at launch for the “full game”. Is it right that we have to do that? Well that part is debatable...

Might give the free trial a go. Not into the whole in-built micro transaction vibe of these days though...

I remember the good ol' days when... lol

I agree with you mate.

I've bought plenty of season passes over the years. I typically buy the DLC content if it's a game I enjoy & play frequently. However, in all other games that I've purchased DLC's/Season Passes, I've never needed to in order for the game to simply continue to function as it did before the DLC was released & this is where I drew the line in the sand with Destiny.... Bungie wanted to !@#$ me, well !@#$ you Bungie! ...& that's where Bungie & I parted ways.

For me, it's a bit like if Sony released some great new TV that they sell me on being better than all other TV's (for whatever reason). Then, about 6 months into its lifespan, Sony release this cool new feature that everybody wants, but you have to pay for it (at about a third of the cost of the original purchase price)... the kicker being if you don't pay for it your TV stops functioning entirely.

I wonder as to the legality of it all - I think business practices such as this should be illegal (if they aren't already).

Can probably knock out the main storyline and boost that light a bit in that day.
This seems to be a trend in games now, free weekends and trials.
Pretty lame about the size of the games you have to download, update and install within that timeframe though, Seems bloody insane.

Don't know if I want to try this after the company admitting XP throttling...
