Destiny 2: The Witch Queen and all other expansion packs will be free for one week. Developer Bungie confirmed during its Lightfall showcase on Tuesday that said content will be free until August 30 on all platforms – PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. As part of the announcement , Bungie has also brought Destiny 2 to the Epic Games Store, along with the recent 30th Anniversary Expansion Pack, at no cost. The DLC is available for purchase on Steam at Rs. 329.
The Witch Queen expansion pack is considered by many to be one of the best campaigns Destiny 2 has had to offer in recent times. The DLC introduces a new location to the world of the Throne of Savathûn, as you uncover the mystery of how she and her Lucent Hive stole the light – showing her transformation from an alien god of evil into a patron queen. Players can expect a new set of maps ranging from gothic cathedrals, palaces, swamps, and a mysterious black pyramid on the icy moon of Europa.
The Destiny 2 main campaign also features a Legendary mode, with tense level design, puzzles, jaw-dropping visuals, and close combat – aided by the new guns included in The Witch Queen pack. On Steam, the DLC is available for Rs. 539, but the content must be unlocked for free access upon entering the main app. Players will not lose any in-game progress once the free tier expires, and all unlocked items and checkpoints will be accessible again upon purchase.
Additionally, Destiny 2 and all of its expansions are now available on the Epic Games Store. The bundle also includes Bungie’s 30th Anniversary expansion, which adds a three-player dungeon – inspired by the famous Cosmodrome loot caves – as you follow a mysterious adventurer who traded his humanity for treasure. New weapons, ornaments, and other cosmetics are also part of the expansion.
And because Destiny 2 offers cross-play support, players can jump to whichever platform they prefer, based on where more friends are online, without worrying about losing their progress. Whether it’s Steam or the Epic Games version, all saves are synced to your Bungie account. The move marks Destiny 2’s third showcase since its launch in 2017. The game was first available on Activision Blizzard’s Battle.net, after which it gained independence and left for Steam.
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Expansion Pack will be available for free for an entire week, until August 30.
