The user base is healthy. https://destinytracker.com will increase by a lot once Forsaken drops.
If you haven't played D2 I highly recommend it. One of the best games this gen.

It should be worth noting that it's not actually free. The base game is literally unplayable without the DLCs, and you can't even play the Forsaken DLC unless you buy the other DLCs.

Same old money-hungry Activi$ion. 

Yeah.... I doubt that. I know Activision are pretty scummy but that wouldn't even be legal.

Already got it a few months ago in the HMB (Humble Monthly bundle)... very entertaining

I was referring to game quality. You can't even do most of the activities without the DLCs because they require you to be at a certain power level which you can only get to through said DLCs.

And Forsaken literally requires you to buy all the other DLCs in order to play it. 

Activi$ion are truly scumbags.

You haven't seen all the controversy around it, did you ?

Man, how bad must the playerbase be. I’m gonna pass. I will snag GoW3 though.

Game averaged 500k-1m daily active users.

I mean a lot of content is locked behind the year 1 expansions and the upcoming Forsaken expansion but there's probably like ~20 hours worth in the base game. You have the base campaign which is actually pretty good, a few strikes, crucible,  patrol missions and a level 20 cap. Bungie also said they're doing seasonal events free for everyone. The August event just ended yesterday but they plan to have 4 more events for year 2.

It's FREE as long as you pay $60 a year, as long as you want to play the game. But then again, the movies on Netflix are free too, I suppose.

I'm not *usually* the guy to point this out, but there was a bit of an EMPHASIS on FREE so I couldn't RESIST.

It's online only though, right? So calling it out for that is a bit pointless when you literally can't play it without PS+ regardless of whether you actually paid for and bought the game or not.

I'm not sure but even if it's online-only, it definitely has a strong multiplayer focus. So yeah, that's somewhat of a valid point in this case. But like I said: it's the EMPHASIS that got me. ;-P

This is simply not true. You can do almost all of the content that the game originally came out with without buying the expansions even to this day. None of that content is locked behind anything. You can do the campaign, public events, adventures, strikes, nightfall, raid, PvP - everything with just the base game. Heck, you even get all of the expansion PvP maps for free now so the playerbase is not split up. The only exception is perhaps the nightfall on the week one of the expansion strikes is in rotation, but that only happens every so often.

The content that is locked behind higher light levels are the content that came out with the expansions.



 

Well I'm glad I didn't buy this. I saw on sale in a store for 8 bucks. Dodged a bullet there lol.

The issue I have is that the DLC costs a shit ton, and I ain't buying that shit. If the seasons pass is 10 bucks I'll get it. But we all know that won't happen

A few weeks back year one expansions we're $15 on Playstation and Xbox so I could see the price going that low for the next major sales.

I don't know where you live but the season pass is like £15 in the UK.
