    Bungie's latest release is a good expansion on its own, but the way it sets the stage for the future of the Destiny franchise is its most impressive feat.

    Shadowkeep isn’t cheap however and how much you put into it will determine how much you want to and will get out of it. The base game is $54.95 which for a stand alone expansion isn’t exactly cheap. The most value for money, based on what you can get out of it is actually the digital deluxe edition at $99.95. I think Destiny 2 is on the right path now that they’ve split from Activision. And I’ll be keenly watching their progress.

    A good expansions that shines in its most difficult activities, but that does not offer enough content to keep the community engaged for a very long time. The new path taken by Bungie is very promising, though.

    There's certainly enough new content here to keep fans interested. Shadowkeep's lunar surface is no Dreaming City, but it holds enough new surprises to make it worth checking out.

    The militancy that the now independent Bungie shows with Shadowkeep is promising for the future of Destiny 2. The new locations look beautiful as always and although the story of the expansion ends abruptly, Bungie shows that there is a clear vision for the next few years.

    Forsaken had a fantastic campaign that Shadowkeep doesn't quite match, but all of the enhancements for Year 3 of Destiny 2 help balance it all out.

    While its campaign is enjoyable in the moment, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep never manages to truly shake the fact that we already went to the Moon five years ago. For better or worse, this is just more Destiny, and that’s a positive for those enamoured with the franchise, but anyone who was hoping for a more dramatic overhaul of its core systems and mechanics will be left wanting. Bungie has huge plans for the future of Destiny 2, but Shadowkeep only delivers a small piece of that vision.

    Earth's Moon was my favorite location in Destiny 1 and I am happy we get to return their. This is the first time I've really enjoyed Destiny 2Earth's Moon was my favorite location in Destiny 1 and I am happy we get to return their. This is the first time I've really enjoyed Destiny 2 as much as I did the first game. There is so much to do in this game. The story is short but that is to be expected and Bungie said themselves that this is only the starting point. The new Vex Offensive game mode is really fun. Awesome new weapons through that and through the moon. The finishers are a really fun addition to the gameplay. I can't wait to get to the raid which I've heard is really fun. The new nightmare hunt thing is cool. There's so many ways to earn gear now. Almost every major NPC has a weekly quest and now there's weekly quests through gamemodes and locations as well. The season pass unlocks are really awesome as well. Much more gratifying than just an engram. I have gotten some really fun stuff from that. The Seasonal Artifact is great as well. It unlocks some great abilities like the Anti-Barrier rounds which let you shoot through shields. Overall I am having a blast with this expansion and I can't wait for what's next! Expand

    Finally destiny unleashes its true potential without the restractions of activision. This is the destiny at its best.

    This Expansion has revitalized my interest in the Destiny franchise and it should be given a shot by anyone who loves this genre of game.

    Destiny fans beware! the long awaited expansion (DLC) is not the answer your looking for to save this franchise. It is not worth $35 its justDestiny fans beware! the long awaited expansion (DLC) is not the answer your looking for to save this franchise. It is not worth $35 its just recycled content with a few new gear pieces from the new raid and some weapons thats about it, im really disappointed in the lack of gear i was getting while powerleveling, i only got forsaken and old dlc content drops. The nightmare missions again are just recycled content from the first game and theres not much to do after you hit the 950 soft cap besides the raid in order to hit the hard cap of 960. The things i do enjoy is how they basically put alot of the new weapons and past weapons that are really top meta behind long quest chains. So it makes it that anybody can get these items, you will need help a certain parts but other then that i believe the game has become a collections incentive. Also i havent seen many people with straight shadowkeep gear basically everyone has just used the upgrade modules to choose which old pieces of gear they enjoy the most and level them up. Its just not a practical game anymore. Which is fine but i wish it would have come with more content in the beginning, another thing is the straight rip off of the season pass from apex and fortnite, i mean its fine but what the hell is the point of it. How many things can they copy from blizzard as well with the artifact leveling lol, it jus seems like they pulled ideas from everyone else and used them. This new expansion has brought me back since Forsaken, but i have a feeling like always ill play this for about 2 months then when something amazing comes out like ( Death Stranding) ill just go to that, Destiny Shadowkeep has become one big collections bag, and now and again ill go back to do just that.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep é a pior expansão já criada para a franquia, eles destruíram o jogo que estava muito bom, tiraram o sentido de RPG que é de evoluir seu personagem, você começa com poder em 750 invés de 0, além de terem menosprezado mecânicas existentes que ajudavam a dar uma imersão bem legal para os jogadores. Me decepcionei muito, e agora isso me fez parar de jogar ''Destiny 2'', vou esperar sentado para uma sequência no futuro, porque esse jogo foi destruído. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Playing Destiny since D1 year 3 and i pre ordered shadowkeep and to be perfectly honest, as someone who has been playing this for years now it's the same stuff again, like 80% of the complete dlc is reskinned stuff like the weapons, armour, the moon and even in the campaign you basically just kill bosses you killed billions of times already just wtf bungie, it can't get any lazier than this at this point, but to me the worst part is the awful server management, half the time you can't even play the damn game as the servers crash and are too full. This is not a dlc worthy of 35 € it's maybe worth 10 bucks not more, as a destiny veteran i am very disappointed and even rhe last mission when you beat rhe final "boss" which of course is a reused boss from before, you will Gifted with the lamest ensing of all times, so dull so bad just plain bad, it's unbelievable that these guys made halo Expand
