Destiny 2 will be inviting new players to try the game for free. Developer Bungie announced that it will be opening a new free trial mode for the game, allowing undecided players to get a taste of its MMO shooter.
The trial will be limited to Earth’s European Dead Zone and Titan, although not all quests will be made available. Players will also be allowed to queue for Quickplay games in the Crucible multiplayer arena, opening up a taste of PvP. That said, free players will only be allowed to progress up to level seven.
Progress gained during this trial period will also carry over to the full game if a purchase is made. It’s a lot of content, but chances are that people will be convinced to buy the full game long before it’s all explored.
Destiny 2 is experiencing a similar sort of issue that the original game had. There’s been a lot of bad press and lackluster reviews, but that hasn’t quite stopped people from playing the game.
This announce seems to be timed to coincide with the Curse of Osiris DLC that’s set to drop on 5 December. It also seems to be tied to the end of the Cyber Monday sales, leaving players to pick the game up at full price. The trial opens on 28 November, but time zone differences should put that in the wee hours of 29 November for us here in Malaysia.
