If you have a mid-range PC and have never jumped into “Destiny 2,” now is your chance. Celebrating an entire year on PC, Bungie and Activision, in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment, announced that from November 2nd to November 18th anyone with a new or old Battle.net account that hasn’t bought the game yet, will have the opportunity to claim the game as a free gift.
Destiny 2 will be available on the Battle.net app to claim for free for a little more than two weeks in November, and players will have the opportunity to download the game once they’ve claimed it*. New Battle.net accounts created after 11:00 a.m. PDT on November 2, 2018, will be required to enable Blizzard SMS Protect before claiming their game license. Destiny 2 is redeemable from account.blizzard.com/gifts/.
Existing players of Destiny 2 PC will receive an exclusive emblem not available anywhere else, which becomes available in December, to commemorate the first anniversary of being on Battle.net. Additionally, new Guardians will have the opportunity to try out Destiny 2: Forsaken’s new mode “Gambit,” from November 9th through 11th 2018, during the Gambit Free Weekend. Gambit is a 4v4 hybrid activity included with Destiny 2: Forsaken. More details are available at http://www.DestinyTheGame.com/Battlenet/.
“We know Destiny players that want to play on PC expect an amazing experience, whether it’s on their own or with their friends — so, our paramount concern was to keep the discerning requirements of the PC community in mind, and welcoming the Battle.net and Bungie PC communities together,” said Steve Cotton, game director for Destiny 2: Forsaken at Bungie. He added, “With this gift we look forward to seeing new Guardians in our universe.”
The Destiny franchise has been going strong since 2014, and Destiny 2 had a record-breaking PC launch in 2017. The highly-anticipated sequel was the largest PC launch in Activision Publishing history based on units at the time.
