Bungie has officially confirmed details on Destiny 2 Shadowkeep and revealed a trailer for the expansion. "New Light" is basically "Destiny 2", except it is free to play.

Shadowkeep will also change some of the game's exisiting features and introduce new ways to play. Engadget isn't just a random site, which is where most of these type of leaks usually happen.

This is all awesome news for the Destiny franchise but Bungie didn't stop there.

Destiny 2 was released and spent the better part of its first two years alive with Bungie and Activision at the reigns. Bungie's online action-MMO has evolved, through multiple releases, reworks, and DLC drops, into an incredibly rich game with an involved set of storylines, snappy gameplay, and tons of things to do. More emphasis, too, will be placed on "evolving world" content like the Forsaken expansion's excellent "Dreaming City" material. It remains to be seen if Bungie will launch another annual pass as some sources anticipate the release of Destiny 3 in the future.

Eagle-eyed miners found a few signs which suggest that new content will be announced for the game during the upcoming event which should take place before the E3 2019 conference. While there will be some Destiny 1 moments though they wanted to clarify that it is Destiny 2.

Destiny 2: New Light will launch on 17 September, and this will also be the date when the PC version of the game becomes available on Steam. Moreover, the image related to Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, maxi-expansion that should be announced during the presentation of today. This late-decision from PlayStation isn't a shocking revelation when you think about Sony's previous encounters with the notions of cross-platform and cross-save on PS4. Starting this fall, players Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC players will be able to play the game on either platform and pick up their progress from where they left off on the other.

Another big story is that Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris and Warmind are being combined together to form Destiny 2: New Light.

Glimpses of enemies in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep appear to show some new form of Taken. From here you can roam the solar system, unlocking new content and powering up your guardian as you go, becoming the champion Destiny needs.
