It looks like you’ll have to pay extra to access the new dungeons that are coming Fate 2 with the Witch queen Expansion in year 5 of the game.
The new dungeons that will be added to Destiny 2 in 2022 and beyond will not be included in the standard versions of Witch Queen or in the various Season Passes for Year 5, Bungie clarified today.
That said, if you want access to all of the content that arrives throughout the life of the expansion, you’ll need to set aside $ 79.99 or £ 69.99 for the deluxe edition of the DLC for the game.
They’re also offered as separate purchases, though that’s a bit of consolation for some fans who are starting to question the developer’s monetization model (especially since we only learned a few weeks ago that Bungie was the paid Forsaken expansion will remove). also the game).
“We saw some debates about the new dungeon content and wanted to clarify how it will be delivered next year,” said community manager Cozmo23 on Reddit. “When you get the digital deluxe edition of The Witch Queen, you get the expansion, all four seasons for the next year and the two dungeons. If you get the standard edition, you can still upgrade to the deluxe edition for the dungeons We will also offer you a separate option to purchase the dungeons in the future, but they will not be included in the season tickets. ”
So if you’re looking to get access to everything Bungie throws you in early 2022, for clarity, you’ll need to look: the Witch expansion, season passes, and a deluxe upgrade, or a range of additional one-time purchases. Yes, it’s tangled, and no, people are not happy. A cursory glance at the game’s reddit will tell you so much. And that’s before you get to the comments on the new player onboarding experience as well.
Originally slated for release later this year, in line with most other Destiny releases to date, Witch Queen has been postponed to early 2022 – which seems to be when Bungie would like the annual releases to go live now.
The Witch Queen will be available on February 22nd for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Stadia.
