Destiny 2 Comes to Xbox Game Pass This September, Includes All DLC

Destiny 2 is going completely free-to-play with the Xbox Game Pass, including the upcoming Beyond Light DLC.

The base game of Destiny 2 is already free but for those most recept expansions, there still needs to be money thrown down. At least for those that don’t have the Xbox Game Pass. After revealing a new Beyond Light gameplay trailer for Destiny 2, Bungie confirmed that the online shooter is making its way over onto the Xbox Game Pass this September and will include all DLC.

Given that Bungie was the original creator of Halo, this move is strangely poetic and it means nothing but good things for players. This move in September will include all of the previous DLC including the upcoming Beyond Light expansion and while, at this time, this is just for the console version of the membership, Microsoft has stated that this will transfer over to the PC version of Game Pass some time in 2021. 

For those that may still be on the fence about Microsoft’s membership, how the Xbox Game Pass works is it gives Xbox fans unlimited access to many great Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles for only $9.99 per month, including fan-favorites including exclusives like Halo, Gears of War, and Crackdown. With so many games to discover and download, your Xbox experience will never be the same.

For more about the Xbox Game Pass, according to Microsoft: 

  • Play games across multiple genres, from action/adventure and family favorites to shooters, sports, puzzle games, and more. And with new titles added every month, you’ll always have a wide selection of great games to choose from.
  • Download games directly to your console and play online or offline in full-fidelity, without any streaming or connectivity issues. Whether it’s a new story to immerse yourself in or an old journey you’re eager to revisit, experience your games as they were intended.
  • Love an Xbox One game and want to own it? Interested in an add-on or Season Pass for a title you’re playing in the Xbox Game Pass catalog? Save 20% on Xbox One game purchases and 10% on all related add-ons, but only while the base game is currently in the catalog. Xbox 360 games do not qualify for discounts.
