Destiny 2 is getting a free download period on the PlayStation 4 just ahead of the game’s new expansion.
For those who are still on the fence about Destiny’s newest installment, fret no more. PlayStation is releasing the title for a limited time, with all the bells and whistles attached.
The title is now available for PlayStation Plus members as part of the September PS Plus Giveaways – a full week before the rest of September’s releases.
This opportunity comes just before the release of the Destiny 2: Forsaken add-on, set to be available for play on September 4th. PlayStation’s blog post detailing the giveaways expressed a desire for players to take advantage of a special, limited-time trial of Forsaken’s Gambit Mode before the add-on’s full release.
Gambit Mode is a new multiplayer mode for the title, and is currently available for a 24-hour trial period. Gambit will start in full at 10 AM PDT on September 1st: players looking to get ahead of the game will want to get their run in while they can.
Players with a PlayStation Plus subscription are able to download and keep their free content for as long as their membership remains active. However, users will need to download Forsaken and Destiny 2’s expansion pass separately in order to experience the game’s full array of content, bringing their total to $60.
Seven other games are available for free in the PS Plus September Giveaways, including God of War III Remastered. This title will be available for download on September 4th. A full list of September’s giveaways are listed below:
