Destiny 2 is coming to Steam with the launch of its latest expansion, Shadowkeep. The base game will be available for free, along with the Warmind and Curse of Osiris expansions and some other stuff. But what about Forsaken? A lot of folks have been wondering how to buy Forsaken on Steam, since that’s the missing piece you’ll need for a full package. If you’re among them, keep reading this guide and we’ll show you what to do.
How to install Forsaken on PC?
If you’ve seen the infographic floating around, you’ll know that what you get in the New Light package doesn’t include most of Forsaken. Since this is the expansion that many people think actually propelled Destiny 2 into greatness, it’s understandable that you’d want that as well. However, at this point in time, you can only get the New Light package (or base game, call it whatever you like) and the Shadowkeep DLC.
Fear not – you will be able to purchase the expansion, but not right now. It’ll become available as soon as Shadowkeep launches, which is supposed to be tomorrow. If you’ve preloaded New Light, you already have both the Forsaken and Shadowkeep content on your hard drive. Buying the DLCs themselves will just provide you with the licenses required to unlock and play the stuff.
If you’re going to be playing on PC, there are other preparations you should be aware of. After you preload Shadowkeep, you should also make sure you’ve transferred your characters. If you’ve been playing on Battle.net, simply follow the instructions on Bungie’s site in order to link the accounts. If you’re coming from a console environment, you’ll need to enable the cross save function in order to get your guardians, gear and progress over onto Steam.
