The release dates for Destiny 2 DLC expansions might have leaked, thanks to GameStop employees. The leak is about the already announced Expansions I and II, and the release schedule seems to mirror that of the first Destiny. The expansions will include “brand new story missions, co-operative activities, competitive multiplayer”, and more.
According to the leak, courtesy of Reddit user noblesteeda, Expansion I will come out in winter 2017, while Expansion II will go live some time in spring 2018. We still don’t know the exact dates, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. However, there’s still a lot to fuel the hype train. Here’s what the instructions to store leaders promise for the expansions.
The Destiny 2 Expansion Pass includes reservations for both EXPANSION I and EXPANSION II, which will be released in Winter 2017 and Spring 2018, respectively. The Expansions offer brand new story missions, co-operative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armour, and gear.
Mind you, Guardians, this release hasn’t yet been confirmed. However, if this does turn out to be true, the schedule will basically stay true to the one of the original Destiny, before they switched to releasing big expansions annually. Since PlayStation 4 will have timed Destiny 2 exclusive content, we’ll see if that in any way influences how the expansions will work across platforms.
Another thing of interest from this leak is what will carry forward from the previous game. Here’s what it says.
When you log into Destiny 2 for the first time you will see that your character personalisation – class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections – for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. Additionally, we plan to award veteran accounts with honours that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.
However, “power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency” will not carry forward to Destiny 2. Admittedly, that would be way too much to ask, considering that the sequel is trying to get new players on board.
Destiny 2 comes out on September 8, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and, for the first time, PC. You can already preorder it and get early access to the Destiny 2 Beta. If you’re interested in getting some cool additional stuff, you’ll want to check out the Destiny 2 Collector’s and Limited edition.
