Following Destiny popping up as a free game on digital storefronts, many started to speculate that Bungie has changed their business model for the game. However, the developer has come forward and clarified the situation that the game is not free-to-play, it’s just Destiny Trial version.
Bungie has acknowledged the situation and explained what is going on with Destiny. According to the developer, players might download the entire base game, but they will only be given access to Destiny Trial version for free.
The original Destiny adventure may appear to be free on some digital console marketplaces. While players may download the Destiny base game, they will only be granted access to the Destiny Trial Mode for free. If players wish to progress through the original Destiny adventure via digital download, they will be required to purchase Destiny – The Collection to gain access to this content.
Destiny The Collection was announced last week, and it includes the base game and all the DLCs including Rise Of Iron. The Collection will be available for $60 when it is released in September, but those who pre-purchase it, will be able to play the game and its expansions right away, except for Rise Of Iron.
Bungie has released three raids for Destiny till now, and fourth on the way will be included with Destiny Rise Of Iron. The most recent raid, King’s Fall, is considered to be the most technically demanding and difficult raid of all.
Bungie’s lead raid designer Gavin Irby has clarified that the new raid will not be hard, but it will mostly depend upon player’s light level.
Destiny is a first person multiplayer shooter developed by Bungie for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3 and Xbox 360, but Destiny The Collection will only be available for Xbox One and PS4.
