Destiny 2 Season Pass coming with Shadowkeep expansion


And it's exactly like the Battle Pass seen in Fortnite and Apex Legends.

A Destiny 2 Season Pass will be introduced alongside its next expansion, Shadowkeep, Bungie has recently advised.

The Season Pass will be similar to Battle Pass functionality found within Fortnite and Apex Legends, and will reward players who achieve specific goals. Similar to other games, the Season Pass will offer tiers and ranks, and moving up the pass’ ladder will offer rewards for progress. Moreover, the Season Pass will have two tracks: one free, and one paid. The first Season, Seaon of the Undying, is part of Shadowkeep itself and does not need to be purchased separately.

Here’s what’s included in Season of the Undying:

  • A new seasonal activity, the Vex Offensive
    • Four Legendary Weapon drops
    • Additional weekly and daily bounties
    • Additional weekly challenges with powerful rewards
  • A new weapon quest for an Exotic Bow, Leviathan’s Breath
    • Exclusive to Season Pass owners
  • A new Exotic Hand Cannon, Eriana’s Vow
    • Awarded on Rank 35 of the free track
    • Awarded on Rank 1 of the premium track
  • Three seasonal Legendary armor sets (one for each class)
    • Collect a complete set during the first 25 ranks of the free track
      • NOTE: This is a change from the Annual Pass, where you were required to purchase gear from the Season.
    • On the premium track you get all three sets on Rank 1
    • These also drop within the Vex Offensive seasonal activity
      • If you want versions with higher stat tiers, you’ll need to play Vex Offensive to earn them
  • Some additional premium track rewards:
    • Three universal ornament armor sets (one for each class)
    • An Exotic weapon ornament for Eriana’s Vow
    • Two Legendary weapon ornaments
    • A new finisher
    • An Exotic emote
    • An Exotic ship

If players choose not to buy Shadowkeep, they’ll still get access to the free Seasonal Pass track alongside some vanilla content, including:

  • Patrolling the Moon destination
  • The opening mission of Shadowkeep
  • Two new strikes
  • Crucible Updates
  • Two returning PvP maps from the D1 era—Widow’s Court and Twilight Gap
  • Elimination in Crucible Labs
  • Armor 2.0 build customization
  • Eye of the Gate Lord Seasonal Artifact
  • New finishers
  • Two new pinnacle weapons: one for Gambit and one for Crucible
    • Free Seasonal Rank rewards, which include:
    • New Exotic weapon—Eriana’s Vow
    • Three Legendary armor sets (1 per class)
    • Two Legendary weapons
    • Best of Year 2 Bright Engrams
    • Glimmer and upgrade modules

It should also be noted that this Season Pass system is completely separate to the Annual Pass previously featured in Destiny 2. For more, head here.
