    Shadowkeep is a big stride forward for Destiny 2, and it shows that Bungie cares about its game. Sure, there are some stumbling blocks like a bare bones story and some wonky design choices, but those don’t get in the way of enjoying the core Destiny experience. I love Destiny, and the breath of fresh air that Shadowkeep has brought to the series has me hooked once more.

    Shadowkeep sounds like a love letter to the fans. Lots of plot revelations, a beautiful moon to explore and many new challenges, this expansion has many qualities, despite a very short campaign.

    Shadowkeep and New Light bring Destiny 2 a new born. A massive upgrade becomes the game Free to Play with lots of playable content without giving a cent. They also add new and interesting systems, like Armor 2.0 or the seasonal battlepass, which give the players (also de free to play players) more possibilities than ever. Besides, this big update came with Destiny 2’s new DLC, Shadowkeep, who sent us to the Moon to fight our nightmares. An enjoyable adventure maybe too short and irregular at some parts of the history, but really nice in general terms, with a very surprising ending .

    To be clear, Destiny 2 is still an engaging shooter that—when you step back and take stock of all it has to offer—is absolutely packed full of stuff to do. Shadowkeep is both an entertaining assortment of new activities and a solid base from which the game at large can build and improve. But Shadowkeep also doesn't feel like Destiny 2's final form, and there's a real sense that there's still much left to be tweaked and tightened. The subway is being refurbished slowly, one station at a time. That doesn't stop me from enjoying the ride.

    Shadowkeep is an interesting expansion but poor in content. We look forward to seeing what the next few months will bring, hoping that Bungie will be able to keep his promises.

    Shadowkeep is an extremely lazy expansion that offers nothing more than the bare minimum of content. Some new sets of armor, a few additional weapons, several exotic and a pleasant additional endgame activity are of little use when everything else is in fact recycled from the past incarnations of the franchise. Let’s hope Bungie will somehow counterbalance the scarcity of present contents in the next season.

    Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a lot of old content covered by a coat of paint that can barely be considered new, but thanks to the general update of a few game systems and a decent amount of recreational therapy with which you can increase your Light Level, this expansion definitely makes Destiny 2 a better, bigger game.

    Amazing storyline that will unfold over the rest of the season; kick-started by the raid on Saturday. Simple QoL improvements make the gameAmazing storyline that will unfold over the rest of the season; kick-started by the raid on Saturday. Simple QoL improvements make the game impeccably balanced and more fun to play. They have paved the way for an insane year and more.

    You can tell the team have poured their lives into this and it really does show. PvP improvements make the game more enjoyable, new maps and new playlists shake everything up. New weapons, new lore, new everything.

    The new entry point at 750 with New Light has made it a lot easier for my friends to jump in and join with me and enjoy the game. If you haven't tried this out yet, and you're a fan of Halo or similar - give it a go. You won't be disappointed.

    Yes it’s not forsaken, but also very good, and in some places better!

On one hand I had great fun, but then it became free to play and felt a bit like a spit into face to supporting fans. Now it just feels like a bad attempt to drain even more money and time with poor light mechanics. It's simply sad. Expand

    When googling for it you get old articles for the old version.
    Only after asking on the forums you understand how to start the questline.
    What a pile of garbage.

    bungie just keeps doing good **** and then **** it all up again with the next dlc or 2.
    i personally am done with trusting them and with hoping they will change someday.
    and you people who always make excuses for their bull****, are a huge part of why bungie keeps doing that bs since d1.

    they could litterally take a **** on our heads and i swear to god a big part of the playerbase would be like: "oh thats a nice hat"
    or "well atleast its a somewhat dry **** that doesnt stick in your hair, we should be thankful that it wasnt diarrhea" or " you guys who dont like being shat on are just entitled".
    **** you guys
