The white wolf is coming Destiny 2 through new cosmetic products. Bungie teased a crossover with CD Projekt Red’s beloved RPG The Witcher 3 This will add three new armor sets for players to resemble protagonist Geralt of Rivia, at least if they’re willing to shell out $20 or more for a single set. The new skins look great, but also manage to Destiny 2lowest point in years.

“Today, Bungie revealed the next in-game collaboration with CD Projekt Red alongside Season of the Wish on November 28,” the company said. wrote in a press release. “Guardians can disguise themselves as monster slayers with new cosmetics inspired by Geralt of Rivia. The crossover includes armor ornaments, a Ghost shell, a ship, a sparrow, an emote and a finisher.

We don’t know exactly how much the armor sets will cost, but past collaborations with games like Assassin’s Creed were sold for $20 per armor set. That means it would cost $60 to buy all three, not including the Ghost case and other items. Traditionally, Crossover sets are also not available to purchase with shiny dust, the currency earned in-game, meaning the only way to unlock the game. Witcher 3 the sets will consist of paying them with real money.

As a big fan of everything Witcher, from books and games to the rapidly declining Netflix adaptation, I’m intrigued by the new skins. But their timing couldn’t be worse. A difficult year for Destiny 2 recently peaked with Bungie dismissal of 100 employees as well as missing revenue projections of 45 percent and dilatory The final form expansion within three months. This has left players already frustrated with the direction of the game in recent seasons. skeptical and worried. As Forbes writer Paul Tassi recently highlighted, Destiny 2 is now at its lowest concurrent player count ever on Steam.

As the Season of Wishing begins next week seems finally achieve a Destiny 2 mystery going back five years, tons of questions about the game’s future remain, and the proliferation of expensive armor sets remains a major sore point for the community. Destiny 2 made one of its new armor sets free in September to try to quell some of the anger. Asking players to fork out for another collaboration after laying off staff, including community managers, composers, and even longtime veterans, will be another tough sell, no matter how good the sets are.
