Destiny 2 Free Trial Sees the Light This Week [Update]

If you still haven't picked up Destiny 2, even after Black Friday, you'll soon be able to get a taste of Bungie's sequel.


Destiny 2 was the subject of several Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals over the last weekend. Those that still opted to pass on Bungie's sequel for a later date may want to see what's going down later this week.

Destiny 2 will open up with a free trial set to begin Tuesday, November 28. All multiplayer functions will be available, including co-op raids and the PvP Crucible, across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If anyone decides to grab the game later or gets it as a Christmas present from a friend, all progress can be carried over to the full game.

There's curiously no word on the limits of the trial or how long it's set to last. Shacknews has made sure to reach out and ask for these pertinent details. We'll be sure to update this post as soon as the answers come in. In the meantime, check out the video below. And for those looking to get started, our Destiny 2 Complete Strategy Guide should hopefully provide some help.

Update: We have our answer. From the Destiny 2 website:

  • Trial players will be able to play through all of the story content for two of the Destiny 2 destinations, European Dead Zone and Titan, and the Farm social space.
    • Players will have access to campaign missions and adventures for those destinations, and access to compete in the Quickplay Crucible playlist, enabling them to progress to level 7.
    • Trial players will also be able to join Clans, earn Clan XP, and complete available activities as part of a fireteam.
    • If players choose to purchase Destiny 2, their progress will carry over.
