  • Destiny 2 Free on PC Until November 18

If you already have Destiny 2 before this special deal, however, don't be discouraged as you will unlock a special emblem to use in-game to show off your loyalty for the early purchase. But for those of you who are still hesitant, there is now no barrier to jumping in and trying it out.

If you've been paying attention to what's been going on at BlizzCon 2018, you may have heard the news that Blizzard has put Activision's Destiny 2 up for free on PC.

Getting the game is super easy easy as well. And if you want a taste of what comes in Forsaken, you'll be able to try out Gambit, one of Forsaken's major new modes, during a free trial that runs November 9-11.

Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Activision. Between this and the relaunch of its refer-a-friend scheme, Bungie is clearly shoring up its playerbase.

It was not, however, a tactic we were expecting to see Blizzard adopt with Destiny 2, just over a year after its initial release. When you log into the client, you will be notified of a gift which will allow you to claim the game.

All the players will get a free gift too which you can grab as well.

It's basically a win-win situation: for Activision-Blizzard, it gets more people to create accounts for Battle.net and reinvigorates the player base of a year-old game.

Destiny is available to new and old Battle.net, regardless of region. Fortunately, once you own the base game, you can upgrade to Forsaken for $40, which includes all three of the expansions.

Bungie additionally made a point to recognize the numerous players who officially claim the game on PC.
