Bungie and Activision have announced that Destiny 2: Forsaken is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Battlenet, giving players an all new experience in the Destiny 2 world.
Players will travel to the lawless edge of the solar system and dive deep into a new frontier filled with enemies, allies, and untold mysteries, to avenge the death of beloved character Cayde-6. Featuring an all-new cooperative and competitive activity called Gambit and an evolving endgame destination called The Dreaming City, Forsaken tells a dark and revengeful story in the Destiny universe.
“We’ve evolved the Destiny 2 experience to appeal to our incredible community with a deeply personal storyline, loads of content crafted for players who love Destiny, and a massive, new destination built to specifically house an endgame experience like never before,” said Jonty Barnes, General Manager for Destiny at Bungie. He added, “We have plenty of surprises in store in the weeks and months ahead, and we have been working all year with our community to make sure Forsaken will meet their expectations.”
“Destiny has a remarkably diverse community of players,” said Byron Beede, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Destiny at Activision. He added, “Destiny 2: Forsaken, offers both veteran and brand-new players a huge variety of gameplay experiences. With the Complete Collection and the Level 30 Character Boost, it’s a great time to continue your adventures, bring your friends into the game, or jump into the universe for the very first time.”|
The latest expansion also adds a new multiplayer mode, Gambit, to the game. Gambit is a first-of-its-kind hybrid game mode, combining the best of PvE and PvP. Two teams of four face off against each other in separate but identical arenas. Teams fight enemy combatants, collect the motes they drop, bank them to send powerful blockers to slow down the opposing team, and then invade the enemy side for intense PvP showdowns where disruption is the goal.
The expansion is priced at $59.95 for those who already own the main game, but for those coming in fresh, you can get the base game and Forsaken expansions for $99.95, there is also a Legendary Edition, if you want to treat yourself.
