Destiny 2 is now handing out in-game freemium currency to players to incentivize them to keep playing the game weekly until The Final Shape.

Bungie’s Destiny 2 has come to a bit of a standstill. With Season of the Wish well underway, players are wondering what’s next for the looter shooter. The normal answer would be the next major expansion The Final Shape, but thanks to delays in production, the new update won’t be arriving until June of this year.

As such there’s far more downtime than usual while waiting for the next content release in Destiny 2. With the announcement of the delay being somewhat recent, the devs had to scramble to extend the duration of Season of the Wish, putting in new content and story so players don’t get bored.

Now Bungie is pulling out all the stops, offering players the freemium currency of Bright Dust to keep Guardians logging in from week to week.

“As we head toward The Final Shape, we’re honoring Guardians with a new weekly gift of Bright Dust.”

This promotion begins on March 5th and will run all the way until The Final Shape’s launch on June 4, 2024.

“Players can visit the Eververse store to claim 700 Bright Dust each week leading up to the launch of The Final Shape. Make sure to log in, get your Dust, and spend wisely, Guardians.”

This totals about 9,100 Bright Dust, a worthwhile bounty for those looking to pick up any new cosmetics when the new expansion launches.
