Destiny 2 Is Getting a Free Trial Tomorrow for Every Platform

Destiny 2 free trial available ahead of Curse of Osiris release

Destiny 2 free trial goes live on November 28th

Available from today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Bungie has released a free-to-download trial of Destiny 2, offering a sample of everything that the full game has to offer.

The trial (or demo, which has somehow become a forgotten word in the modern gaming landscape) will give players access to some of the campaign and the team-based competitive multiplayer.

The character progression will be locked to level 7, and those who want to proceed further must eventually purchase the full version of Destiny 2.

The short of the story is that some intrepid Destiny 2 players discovered that post-game XP gains to unlock Bright Engrams wasn't relative to what players should have been earning based on their actual grinding performance.


Enjoy one of 2017's top-selling games as you explore the world in the wake of a devastating Cabal invasion.

Beyond that, leveling is important in Destiny 2 because of the loot box-like Bright Engrams to receive unique such as cosmetic items, emotes, sparrows, ships, and more.

If you're yet to see what all the fuss is about with Destiny 2, you'll be able to test it out on your platform of choice from tomorrow. In theory, that could push them to spend real cash for these perks instead of earning them through gameplay. That could be changed, however, if Bungie decides to let players try out the expansion before the trial closes down. I read it as a bit of a unusual move, only because we're on the verge of learning about important improvements coming to the game (via a livestream coming later this week), so I'm not sure why Bungie is so eager to have more people jump into the game right now. If enough players start believing they're being nickel-and-dimed and quit as a result, it won't matter how much money the handful of "whales" bring in. They measured this by the same amount of XP gained. "We are not happy with the results, and we've heard the same from the community", the official statement read.
