On Tuesday 1st October, Destiny 2 goes free-to-play. It's a big change for the game, one that affects its structure, content delivery, and how it is perceived going forward. Given the title Destiny 2: New Light, it gives away a huge amount of content that veteran players have already paid for, including some year 2 additions. With Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, the experience is entering its third year on the market, so it's understandable if you're not entirely sure what this new free-to-play option includes. So, here is everything that Destiny 2: New Light does and doesn't include.
