New Image Teases Destiny 2 Plus Expansions on Xbox Game Pass for PC
Load up you Guardian wherever you Game Pass subscription allows.
Destiny 2 and a bunch of expansions are currently available on Xbox Game Pass. It’s how I’ve been playing Destiny 2 for the most part, because the Xbox Series X is a powerhouse for running that game. However, all this time, the game hasn’t been available on the PC version of the subscription. I don’t know the ins and outs of the issues surrounding this, but I imagine everything Bungie had to do to get the game running on Steam probably exacerbated things. Now though, it looks like there’s hope for a PC iteration of the Xbox Game Pass version.
Take this with a pinch of salt since it’s not from the original source. However, as you can see, Xbox Game Pass is bragging about working on Bringing Destiny 2 plus the expansions to Xbox Game Pass for PC later this year. There’s even a Guardian with a new icon, indicating that the game is already running through this service in some form.
The implications of this are massive. Xbox Game Pass is incredibly popular as a service both on Xbox and PC. It’s something I prefer over buying most new games for either because I get a chance to try them out early and decide if I want to invest. With a game like Destiny 2, there’s so much content to explore. Despite it already being free-to-play, the free expansions are what will make this the place to play on PC.
Bungie has worked well with both Steam and Stadia to get Destiny 2 running on almost any device. However, PC is still a bit a touchy place to play. Not only are there issues getting the visuals up to date, caused by the pandemic, there’s a disconnect between the community on PC and all other devices. Console seems to be superior for once when in reality, the entire community is what’s superior.
I think that the fact that Microsoft is showing this off through an official channel indicates that the PC version of Destiny 2 on Xbox Game Pass is basically there. I wouldn’t be surprised if we start hearing about it this month through This Week at Bungie updates, and even get a little look on August 24 with The Witch Queen reveal.
