Destiny 2 [Steam] - Free to play

139
Posted 27th Sep
Heads up for anyone who hasn't seen this yet.

I've just noticed Destiny 2 will be free to play on steam from 1st October! You can pre-load it now.

I believe it is the base game with all year one content.

I already had this from the free on Blizzard's platform a while ago but prefer having it on steam.

This just isn't true. It's one of the best optimised games I've played in a long time.

I've paid at every stage of the Destiny games. More than impressed with how much they are giving people who are returning to the game! Always get my moneysworth within a few weeks of playing as I put crazy hours in and absolutely love doing the raids blind and then helping others through. Thanks for the reminder OP - will pre-load on PC too!

I bought it preowned for £3 on ps4 and haven't played it yet. It's been sitting there for nearly a year now. Oops

Wasn't it a PS+ title one month?

I haven't had PS+ for ages now so the all the money I save goes to games I want rather than those I've already played. I play my online games on PC but use the ps4 for exclusives or if the game is cheaper.

Well you’d be better playing it on the PC next week then as the game is essentially an MMRPG crossed with a shooter. You need PS+ to play online and Destiny really needs to be played with other people

I'll definitely be playing on PC as my graphics card will run it at 2k at decent framerate.

Is this free as in free play days or free indefinitely?

Free indefinitely.

As in free to keep forever or free just for the weekend?
You mean we don’t have to give it back!?

I feel bad for you if that's the case.

It's basically a carbon copy of the first game, the story is near non existent, the guns feel paper thin, the world is empty and the raids are boring.

Wasn't saying that though. You said it ran badly which it doesn't. I've had my fair share of badly optimised games on pc and this isn't one of them.

I agree, when I played it on Battlenet platform it ran flawlessly with my settings cranked up

Just the fact you are mentioning console and PC when it comes to cloud technology, I think you have got yourself completely confused on this one. Not trying to argue with you but their are articles out there by experts you really need to read. Microsoft's superior cloud technology means it has nothing to do with console or PC. There are so many articles explaining how superior xCloud is over Stadia when it comes to the technology and online infrastructure. These experts are telling us Stadia doesn't stand a chance!

Not to mention the content and the lack of it from Google. They have no game studios meaning no exclusive content. It is just going to be the likes of an Assassin's Creed or Tomb Raider which are available everywhere. Microsoft on the other hand has now got more game studios than Sony, and they are not slowing down. Also services like Game Pass and being able to earn achievements.

By funding Google you are also supporting a shady company that has a contract with the Pentagon to improve the accuracy of drone strikes. Works closely with the Chinese government to suppress freedom of information and democracy to its people. Reads people's personal emails and steals information about us. We should be absolutely horrified by the thought of Google gaining a foothold in the gaming industry!

TL;DR

If you look at xCloud main page it says play console quality over streaming... no thanks, what's the point? I'll just whip up my One X for that.

I'll use my 500Mb speeds to play Stadia in 4K 60fps on any game in their library

If you can't even read 3 paragraphs then it just shows you are not interested in knowing the truth and reality about what you are investing in.

They advertise console quality streaming as a way to tell people that you have nothing to worry about when it comes to streaming games and how stable the quality is. You probably haven't read this far so I am just wasting my time...

If you can't explain your point in a short way, then your point can't be that good.

I'd rather have the power of Stadia then xCloud, and have the internet speeds to cover it, that's all that matters

Microsoft's Azure cloud infrastructure which xCloud will be running through is superior to Google Stadia. Absolutely nothing to do with any Xbox console, past, present or future.

But if I wanted to play Xbox quality games I would just play on my Xbox.

xCloud is literally just Xbox data up in the clouds.

It's not something new or high tech, it's just making it so you can play Xbox quality games on the go.

Pointless to me, as I would never want to.

Stadia on the other hand... knowing I have such power to play anywhere... very interesting

I'm very intrigued by Stadia. I'll definitely try the free tier next year. This is funny timing tho with Destiny on Steam wonder if it's to try and steal thunder from the Stadia launch seeing as this is the key title in the Founders edition.
