Destiny 2 Free Trial Starts November 28
Bungie launched a similar free trial for the original Destiny.
Destiny 2 is going on a free trial come November 28, this week. It is unknown how long the trial period will last, but it will include the full game: all activities and quests on European Dead Zone and Titan, as well as the multiplayer.
Though the multiplayer in the Crucible will be restricted to quick play. That said, if you so choose, you can still join a clan and earn experience for your clan. The trial will allow players to reach level 7 but no more unless they buy the full game. The progress will of course carry over if the game is purchased.
Bungie launched a similar free trial for the original Destiny a few months after launch. It seems only natural to do the same with the sequel. Trying out the game in this way is especially important to those that are unable to rent games. Timed trials, like the free Overwatch weekends, are sure to at least win a few purchases for the company and change up the local pool of players for a little while.
Demos, as we might as well call them, are usually a smart business move. It can allow new players to better understand the game mechanics and decide once and for all if they would like to purchase the game. If nothing else, the experience will help to advertise the game via word of mouth, as everyone will likely want to talk about their free trial, whether they liked it or not.
Nonetheless, Destiny 2 is out now on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first DLC, Curse of Osiris, is coming December 5, 2017. It will include another world, Mercury, which has been turned “into a garden world” until the villains of the game arrived. Now the heart of Mercury beats to the turn of cogs rather than paradise.
The DLC will of course bring new rewards and loot for both clan members and solo players. The Infinite Forest, a simulated environment on Mercury, will provide a change of landscape from dusty machines until you resolve the mission there.
