Adjust Comment Print

You don't exactly need a gaming PC to run Destiny 2, but your netbook probably isn't going to cut it.

Destiny 2 is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its launch on by making itself free until November 18th.

Getting the game is super easy easy as well. The game will be available as a free gift on the client, or redeemable from the gift page. Between this and the relaunch of its refer-a-friend scheme, Bungie is clearly shoring up its playerbase. Once that is done, players will be able to keep that copy of "Destiny 2" for as long as they want. Gambit is a 4v4 hybrid activity included with Destiny 2: Forsaken.

You can download the game to your Blizzard account by claiming it as a gift until the 18th of this month.

Finally, Bungie is hosting another free Gambit trial to entice players who have yet to purchase the game's Forsaken expansion.

Even if you're busy shooting it up in Red Dead Redemption 2, once you own a copy of Destiny 2, you're free to try out the game whenever the urge arises. All accounts created today and alter will require a Blizzard SMS Protect (basically confirm your phone number with them) in order to claim the game.

The genre-defining Destiny franchise has received global acclaim since its release in 2014, followed by a record-breaking Destiny 2's PC launch in 2017, the largest PC launch in Activision Publishing history based on units. This then provides those who have not played the game yet with the chance to see what it's like. Once the initial excitement dies down, you're left with DLC, sales and promotions to get fresh blood on board, as early players drift off towards other things.
