For those who have never played Destiny 2, September may be the time to begin your journey. Bungie is giving Xbox Game Pass members access to Destiny 2 and all of the game’s DLC in September. This includes future DLC like the recently delayed Beyond Light expansion, which will now release on November 10.

Xbox Game Pass members will be able to play Destiny 2 and its expansions for free as part of their subscription. However, the game will initially only be available for Game Pass subscribers on Xbox consoles rather than PC. According to a recent tweet, the Xbox Game Pass team is “working with Bungie to bring Destiny 2 Expansions to Xbox Game Pass for PC later in 2021.”

During the livestream, the Beyond Light gameplay trailer revealed the new Stasis elemental power arriving as part of the expansion. The Stasis elemental ability suspends enemies in place and can even be used to create walls and platforms during battle. Shattering frozen enemies will be a new favorite pastime for many Guardians once Destiny 2: Beyond Light releases on Xbox Game Pass in November.
