Destiny 2 Witcher 3 Crossover

As noted in our coverage of the reveal, Destiny 2's new, The Witcher 3-inspired crossover cosmetics look cool, but knowing the general state of microtransactions in live service games, they're probably going to cost a small fortune.

Taking that thought and running with it, players are already dragging Bungie's plans through the mud on social media. One of the most popular posts on Twitter comes from @JpDeathBlade, who points out: "You can actually buy The Witcher 3 and all of its DLCs for less than it would cost you to buy ONE of the THREE Destiny 2 armor sets shown here." Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

To be clear, The Witcher 3 is consistently on sale these days, dropping to incredibly low prices more often than not — but it's still a damning comparison. It's suspected that just one of the three armour sets coming to Destiny 2 will set you back £17 / $20. That's based on the pricing structures of previous crossover cosmetics.

It's not a good look for the sci-fi shooter, which just can't seem to shake negative press these days. In a similar kind of story, Mortal Kombat 1 is another game that's currently being battered for its hilariously overpriced add-ons. When will this madness end?

Dare we ask if you'd ever pay roughly £20 / $20 for one cosmetic outfit in a game like Destiny 2? Just join Geralt on his adventure instead in the comments section below.
