Destiny 2 free trial goes live on November 28th

Wednesday, 29 Nov, 2017

Bungie wants to get more players into the world of Destiny 2, so what better way of doing that than with a Free Trial period starting. well. right now.

A few months after the launch of Destiny back in 2014, Activision and Bungie chose to launch a free trial of the game in a bid to entice more people to give it a go and hopefully purchase the online-only multiplayer first-person shooter. For more information on the trial, visit the official Destiny page.

If you do need a bit of help deciding whether Destiny 2 is the game for you take a look at our full review and my diary series that detailed my journey to level 20.

Bungie launched a similar free trial for the original Destiny a few months after launch.

"Team up with friends or play solo and experience your first steps in the epic cinematic-filled campaign, explore new worlds, and face off in competitive multiplayer", Activision noted in its press release. You'll have access to all of the campaign missions set in these areas.

Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

You'll be able to play single-player and multiplayer modes, join a clan, earn clan points, and work your way up to level 7. Once you start linking in-game progression to loot crates, even if they aren't strictly required for purchase, you've created an environment in which players will question your every adjustment and motive.

In addition to Smith's comments on upcoming features, Bungie is still on track for its third and final livestream for the upcoming "Curse of Osiris" expansion for Destiny 2. In theory, that could push them to spend real cash for these perks instead of earning them through gameplay.
