Bungie has officially revealed the next expansion for Destiny 2, which will be called Shadowkeep, and it will release September 17, but that’s not the real news. The real news is the fact that Destiny 2 is going free-to-play, at least the base game and its first two expansions, in an offering known as Destiny 2: New Light, as well as the fact that the game will now support cross saves between PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Stadia.
Moving forward players will no longer be forced to own every expansion to play new ones, and Shadowkeep will be the first game to follow this new model. Gamers will essentially pay for the content they want because the base software will be free. This is all a result of Bungie breaking free from Activision, so these aren’t just random changes, and they feel like they’re coming from the developer and not the publisher looking for more money.

The Shadowkeep expansion also got a trailer, which offers up some cinematics for the next adventure in Destiny land.
