Well that looks pretty fuckin' cool.

Too bad the MMO elements and investment system spoil it.

But do they? Oh, they do for you. And I'm honestly sorry you feel that way, cause Destiny is still an amazing game.

I strongly dislike the investment system

*Double Take* !?!?!?! Wha?

Isn't Destiny 2 a Free to Play Game Already? But you still have to purchase the seasons? Does anyone else see the incongruity here? Is there something I'm missing?

You don’t have to purchase the expansions...

Does this mean that normally you do, but they are included in game pass? Or that expansions are free for everyone? Sorry, I've been gone from the game so long I don't know how their new model works really.

Correct. Here’s how it breaks down:

D2-Forsaken is free.
Shadowkeep = $35
Beyond Light = $40
Seasons = $10 a piece (This might be different for next year)

So with GamePass you get everything except the Seasons.

I see. And the seasons get you what? Sorry for all the questions. Basically, if you buy the expansion but not the seasons, what are you missing out on?

At least this year they had exotic quests that were exclusive to seasons. I honestly wasn’t that engaged with the Seasons other than those exotic quests.

True. But the whole prospect of Gamepass is essentially, through the service you can play whatever is part of the Gamepass Program. If you still have to purchase seasons, and the game at default is free to play, it all seems rather redundant. At that point, why have it be part of the program?

That said, my post original post of this topic was from this hip, and I can now answer my own question thanks to this handy FAQ.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, players will be able to stream Destiny 2 on their Android mobile devices via xCloud.

Neat.

Xcloud is a service that will be included in Game Pass Ultimate. So unless you pay for it, no streaming for you.

As far as the rest of the game, nothing changes. You pay for the content you want to buy.

Well, dang. Xcloud sounded neat. I’m sure not buying gamepass for it.

I got that Upgrade 3 years to Game Pass Ultimate for $1 deal so mine expires in August of '21.

Definitely gives me some time to put it through it's paces. But I have barely played anything on the Game Pass because I already have a huge backlog of amazing titles... That reminds me that I stopped God Of War when I got the boat.

Expansions are pretty major parts of the game. Playing Destiny without them seems pretty pointless. Seems like a pretty obvious selling point to me, especially with a big new expansion coming soon.

I’m glad. I certainly wasn’t planning on buying Beyond Light, but now I can check it out without spending any extra money.
