Bungie Bundles Older Expansion Pass Content with Forsaken DLC

The launch of Destiny 2 was very lackluster and the first two expansions didn't fix the issues that customers complained about. Frustrated players had become wary of paying $40 for the 3rd expansion called Destiny 2: Forsaken. Bungie has seen the writing on the wall and made the decision to bundle the Destiny 2 Expansion Pass content with Destiny 2: Forsaken starting October 16th. Owners of the Expansion Pass will receive compensation in the form of an emblem, shader, emotes, and consumables. Only the emblem and shader will be exclusive as the emotes can be earned later on.

Launching a game reveals what we did right and where we could have done better. With the first month of Forsaken behind us, we're taking stock of what we've learned. Some of those learnings will manifest in game updates that we're deploying in the very near future, but not every improvement can be made with code changes. We also want to make it less complicated for other Guardians to begin their journey in Forsaken. Effective October 16, the purchase of Destiny 2: Forsaken will include the two expansions included in the Destiny 2 Expansion Pass. Every player of Destiny 2 who has yet to touch down on the Tangled Shore will need only the Forsaken upgrade. Our hope is that this will eliminate some of the questions that confront a player as they try to join our party.
