I know I posted a while back that I was putting down Destiny 2. At the time I was refusing to spend the full price of the Forsaken expansion along with the absurd cost of a season pass in order to reasonably progress my character. At the time, most activities that would actually provide you with gear to progress your character was locked behind those paywalls.
With the release of Shadowkeep at a reasonable cost, Forsaken’s price reduction, everything now being available on Steam, and Bungie divesting itself away from the shitshow that is Activision, I figured now is as good a time as any to jump back in.
Since Shadowkeep came out, I’ve been playing the game pretty much exclusively, and I feel that this is the game that Destiny 2 should have been when it first released. I went from having a couple of quests to fiddle about with to having pages and pages of things to do. It is literally too much to handle in a single day, which means there is such a huge variety of activities that there is always something to do.
I have no idea if Bungie can keep up this kind of pace going forward, but so far things are interesting and I’ve got a hell of a lot to do. Since most of Destiny 2 can be experienced for no cost whatsoever thanks to its free to play offering, anyone can jump in and see if it’s worth your time to buy into the latest content.
I don’t feel bad about supporting Bungie now that it’s self-publishing. If they can continue producing quality content (while no doubt also developing a follow-up title), I’ll keep coming back to take in the sights and shoot things.
