Bungie Shot Down Destiny Free-to-Play Rumor; Free Trial Is Possible Though
In response to the Destiny community's discussion of the free-to-play transition rumor, Bungie has made an official announcement, stating that the game may offer a free trial in some digital console marketplaces, but it won't go free-to-play like many players speculate. You can read the full announcement below.
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 is a multiplayer console shooter with MMO features. The game is going to release its 2nd major expansion Rise of Iron this September. On the other hand, the sequel Destiny 2 is also in development. I'd wish to see Destiny going free-to-play sometime before Destiny 2 comes out.
