Version differences[edit]

Free Trial[edit]

A free trial for the game is occasionally available on all platforms. It is a free version of Destiny 2 with the following limitations:

  • Level is capped at 8, and you are limited to your initial subclass (a relic for a second subclass can be obtained and fully powered, but the corresponding mission is locked).
  • The campaign is playable up through the mission "Utopia".
  • Can play PvP multiplayer in the Quickplay playlist only.
  • Earth and Titan are freely explorable, but some Adventures are locked.
All progress made carries over to the full game.
Only available for a limited time period.

Editions[edit]

The Digital Deluxe Edition includes the game, the expansion pass, and a special emblem, sword, and emote.
The Limited Edition is the Digital Deluxe Edition packaged in a Cabal-themed box and steelbook case.
The Collector's Edition includes everything in the Digital Deluxe edition plus several physical bonuses.
Destiny 2 Forsaken includes the first two DLC and the Forsaken expansion.
