Bungie took a little time Thursday to expand on the Annual Pass content coming following the release of Destiny 2: Forsaken, announced earlier this week. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players have been excited about the promise of the expansion's release in September, while still voicing concern over the post-launch content and monetization plan. The studio fleshed out what fans should and should not expect while balancing precariously on the head of a pin.
The main issue Destiny 2 players have with Forsaken is not the plethora of content and updates coming to the game, but rather Bungie and Activision's approach to selling it and the Annual Pass. The major expansion costs $40 and will require players to own not just the base Destiny 2 game, but the Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansion as well.
This is the same approach Bungie took with the original Destiny and the Taken King expansion. It offered a $60 version that contained all the content through Taken King for those who did not already own it while the Season Pass was frequently available at a discount for those who owned the base game. This will likely be the same approach taken for Forsaken, though additional packages will be announced later this summer.
