The campaign content is pretty good. Some of the best set pieces in the game not in a raid.

It’s unfortunate there’s never a reason to revisit its content.

They dropped the ball not bringing back those reworked campaign missions this solstice plus some more. It was pretty awesome from what I recall. Just give us a challenge and some good loot and it would be nice to try again.

Once you finish the main campaign and all the available side-quests, is there anything else to do without buying expansions?
How do you do PvP?

edit: Looks like I should look into Strikes and the Crucible.

What version of the game do you have?

Ah, okay you the original free version.

You can just wait for New Light and you will get the rest of year one.

A lot of stuff is indeed free. So you can feel it out but I think becoming concurrent right now js like 20 bucks

You lot ready for Shadowkeep?
Define ready? I'm going in with very low expectations since the last two years of D2 content have been far below my expectations and I still expect them to mess it up when it comes to overstocking the eververse with the good shit. My 1 hope that could bring me back to play some would be the PVP changes getting the gameplay in crucible to be more like d1. PVE I've given up on TBH, I've found all of the D2 raids to be ranging from god awful to meh at best and I'm done wasting time grinding out boring raids hoping for a 5% drop rate exotic I'll never see.

I’m concented about the handcanon changes. ...

I prefer the handcanon meta.

Austringer is the best on console. Well, luna’s Howl is still king on console but austringer is close... followed by spare rations.

You want rifles barrel, accurized rounds, eye of the storm and rangefinder and keep grinding it until you get itZ

Looking forward to destiny becoming the number one game on the market come next month

I went ahead and uninstalled it from battle.net and then preloaded the Steam version. My account is set to transfer as well and I'm all set to go!

Pre-ordered the expansion today. My Warlock is still 42... need to get to 50 before Monday's downtime.
You don’t. All gear for all characters for even new f2p players will be 750 and starting at character level 50.

They killed leveling but ... the artifact leveling could be a better alternative to the previous meaningless character lvl.

My warlock didn’t finish the red war campaign.

I’m gonna put in for a week’s vacation last minute. Should work out.

Patrols on the moon being given by dead guardian ghosts and voice acted is a ni e touch.

From all the official gameplay vids of the 1st and 2nd mission that dropped yesterday from all the uoutubers envied to Bungie .... there’s a shit ton in-game storytelling.

The Darkness is here.

New details. Shattered throne can now be launched from the director and will be available to play all the time and not just in rotation every 3 weeks. The forges will also be launchable from the director

Does anyone know if you need PS plus for Destiny 2 New Light as it is free to play and normally f2p games don't require PS plus.
Also does cross save work between PS4 and Xbox as i have both.

I don't think you need plus for anything outside of things like Raids, but it may not even limit those anymore. We won't know for sure til update.

Cross-save yes, Cross-Play no

Any idea how achievements/trophies work, Do you unlock both at the same time on each platform or just unlock them on what platform your playing on at the time.

Yesterday D2 reached 2.46 millions of players logged, and more than half on PC via Steam
Holy cow, what a renaissance for our guy! 🎉
 
So on route to the Gatekeeper ghost I found a hidden "luna scavanger" asleep in the corner, naturally I killed him then some odd mini event kicked off with a chest at the end.

This location was the room with the wizards on the way to phogarth in Destiny 1 the odd guy is right at the back where you pick up the sword in that other quest in destiny 1.

Edit: was a blue item in the chest as well as one of those phantasmal fragments, probably nothing.
