Destiny 2 Release Date & Collector’s Editions Announced

After officially revealing Destiny 2 earlier this week, Bungie has announced the release date for their upcoming shooter as well as a host of other new details. Destiny 2 will launch worldwide on September 8th for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, confirming rumours and leaks regarding a PC release for the last few months.

An open beta for Destiny 2 will also be available in the coming months, and anyone who pre-orders will get early access to the beta. The announcement was a part of the reveal trailer which you can check out below:

In the trailer, we learn that the Cabal have invaded the last safe city on Earth, destroying the Tower. Bungie have provided the following story tease for Destiny 2:

“Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.”

Bungie will reveal first gameplay from the sequel in a livestream event on May 18th. They also confirmed that the PS4 version will have timed exclusive content for one year, with more details to come soon.

An Expansion Pass will once again be available and it will include access to two major expansions, which will include “brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armour, and gear.”
