For a limited time, would-be Destiny 2 players — who may have been holding back due to the entry cost — can get their grubby hands on the game without having to pay anything at all. And the best part is, you get to keep it forever-and-ever.

Prior to the official kick-off of BlizzCon’s opening ceremony, Bungie announced that Battle.net users could download the game for free starting today. The promotion ends on November 18, so you’ll want to grab the game as soon as possible.

For those of you who already ponied up the money for the game on Battle.net, Bungie has created a special in-game emblem that you can use to show just how awesome you are.

    Game is OK for a F2P other than that I don’t like Toxzirrd. And then what they did with SC2, what a waste of my money.

    erhhhhh! bang! bang!
    You are all forgetting they ask for your data by making you use SMS.
    So your phones there’s ownership as well.
    No free here
    Just blatant privacy violations. = MOBILE PHONES
    Its the reason why I LOATH MOBILE GAMES
    They can use your text messages
    your friends phone numbers
    and all other personal stuff stored in your phone and activity for their data bases.

    Stop using your phone for digital info and you will be safer for it.

    Otherwise, just give your life away for a MOBILE GAME

    I’m glad people are getting it for free, but man does it feel bad that all I get for dropping $60 on this game, while being expected to pay another $40+ to “fix” it, is an emblem to show off… which, honestly, is more like a badge of shame than anything lol.

  9. Gopio29 on November 3, 2018

    • Mogar on November 3, 2018

      As many have said, it will be located in your ‘Gifts’ in Bnet.

    A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.

    • Mogar on November 3, 2018

      Makes sense. D2 pulled a D1 where all issues are fixed, after a full game prices Expansion/DLC. They probably agree that the base game at launch indeed had a lack of content so they figured give the base game for free and if people wanted expansions they could purchase separate or might as well get Forsaken that also comes with them.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
