Bungie just revealed that the Destiny 2 Season Pass will increase in price. The Season Pass for Destiny 2 can be purchased with in-game credits, which can be purchased with real money. Season Pass is not an essential requirement, but the benefits it includes provide a more robust gaming experience for many gamers. However, with each season lasting around three months, those looking to buy the pass on a regular basis are likely to face a bigger expense for the foreseeable future.
While the current Destiny 2 Season Battle Pass could be getting an overhaul, the rewards it currently has are great for those looking to get more value out of the game. The extra XP gained by purchasing the pass helps players level up faster. Not only that, but at the beginning of each week, those who own the pass get a small boost to the season pass tier by a few levels. Having the value provided by the pass might help those looking to catch up to established players.
However, as announced in Bungie’s weekly blog, Destiny 2 will be updating the price of its Season Pass starting with Season 21. From an original price of 1,000 silver coins, it is now worth 1,200 silver coins. The second option that gives players an extra +10 levels is called the Season Pass + Level 10 Bundle, and its price will change from 2,000 to 2,200 Silver. The blog also notes that pricing for Lightfall Standard Edition and Lightfall + Annual Pass will remain the same. While the price increase is small, Bungie didn’t say why it was necessary. For now, it will still offer the same rewards for an extra price, but many fans may be put off by the unexpected idea.
Destiny 2 remains one of the best games featuring PvE, and being able to play at higher levels will make for a more fulfilling experience for gamers. Those looking to catch up on the game might consider purchasing a season pass, which will allow them to travel to more difficult areas. These passes allow users to play higher levels of the game faster than normal and with less grind required. They also help those who prefer PvP to play against better opponents of comparable skill level.
As Destiny 2 continues to be one of the best first-person shooters, the game’s lifespan continues to grow. More seasons are expected, with more upgrades and stories. As it stands, season passes may be an inevitable purchase for those looking to play the game competitively. If Bungie can offer more value to the pass in the future, hopefully the increased price is justified. Regardless, Destiny 2 shows no signs of slowing down, and more perks could be introduced for the season pass to make it easier to justify the price change.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
