If you passed on picking up Destiny 2 this Black Friday or Cyber Monday because it wasn’t cheap enough, today might be your lucky day. Amazon’s latest deal of the day features Destiny 2 at the same all-time low price on all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and the PC version that released only last month.
For today only, Destiny 2 is available for just $26 (PS4 / Xbox One / PC). That beats out the best Black Friday pricing we saw by a small margin; GameStop was selling it for $27, while others had it for $30 or more. Most significantly, this is a big discount for the PC version, which Battle.net had on sale for $39 on Black Friday.
This discount applies only to the base game. Destiny 2’s special editions, as well as its expansion pass that provides access to next week’s Curse of Osiris expansion, remain at their regular price. Still, this remains a nice deal for those in the market for the game. If you’re still on the fence, you can check out our Destiny 2 review; there’s also now a Destiny 2 free trial available.
Today was intended to host the third and final livestream dedicated to Curse of Osiris, which launches on December 5. Instead, Bungie has canceled the event in favor of sharing “higher priority information.” This move comes amid growing discontent within the fanbase, as players recently discovered an undisclosed XP scaling system. This limited the amount of XP earned in certain situations, which some have speculated was intended to encourage real-money purchases of Bright Engrams. Bungie has disabled the system but doubled the amount of XP now required to level up.
In terms of what to expect today, Bungie said, “You’ll hear from studio leadership about their assessment of Destiny all up, they’ll talk about our goals for the game going forward, and you’ll also learn about how we’re reacting to your feedback with some game updates that will arrive in the next few weeks.” We’ll report back with those details as they’re shared.
