Game files offer a potential monthly subscription service for Destiny 2 Premium

Game files offer a potential monthly subscription service for Destiny 2 Premium

Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

Destiny is and always has been an annual expansion game since its release in 2014, with smaller expansions (House of Wolves, Warmind, etc.) released in between. However, with the release of Destiny 2’s first major expansion, Forsaken, Bungie changed the model from two smaller expansions to seasons, releasing a total of four seasons per year. And now it looks like the developer is experimenting with a premium subscription service for the game as some references have been found in the game files.

It looks like Bungie is testing a monthly subscription model (similar to games like Final Fantasy XIV) for the upcoming Destiny 2 Lightfall expansion and season 20 which was later scrapped (?) for some reason revealed in the game files. Eliot c D2 Dataminas Discord server shared some file strings with TGP that include four subscription types for the game.

  • season_20datasubscription_upsell_month3_advertisement_banner_000_005.v2.tif
  • season_20datasubscription_upsell_month6_ad_banner_000_006.v2.tif
  • season_20datasubscription_upsell_month12_advertisement_banner_000_007.v2.tif

As we can see, this clearly suggests that at some point there was a subscription service planned for Lightfall and Season 20. The file description says that the subscription model will include “Lightfall, two new dungeons and raids, 1 month of premium content in fate 2 Year 6, New Exotic Sparrow, Quicksilver Storm Catalyst and Decoration, and Rahool’s Secret Hideout: Four exotic accessories and a premium material pack delivered in Year 6″.

“Enhance your journey as a new light with a Destiny 2 premium subscription. Try the first Destiny 2 missions and destinations: Lightfall, The Witch Queen, Beyond Light, and Shadowkeep for free.”

“Avert the apocalypse by racing Emperor Calus to the edge of the solar system. Embark on a new campaign and master the Strand, a new subclass. Pre-order now to instantly unlock the Quicksilver Storm exotic weapon and exclusive bonuses.”

We don’t know when this was added in the game files, but considering it’s for Lightfall and Season 20, the best guess is at the start of Season of Plunder, after the Lightfall demo event.

Now, even with some direct references to a subscription service for Destiny 2 in the game’s files, we don’t know if this will come to fruition until The final formor if that’s a thing Bungie plans to add to the next Destiny saga. In short, take it with a grain of salt.

As of now, Bungie has not announced any kind of Destiny 2 premium subscription model for Lightfall or Year 6 in general. The community has been clamoring for Destiny 2’s seasonal update due to repeated level grinding, power creep, and vendor upgrades for months now.

Destiny 2’s Season of the Seraph is in full swing right now, with its third exotic Revision Zeronow available as part of the new exotic quest that launched earlier this week.
