Xbox Game Pass is getting a major addition later this year, Microsoft revealed during the July Xbox Series X Games Showcase. Destiny 2, Bungie’s MMO-style shooter, will join Game Pass in September–and it will be followed by the Beyond Light expansion upon its release in November.
Notably, the version of Destiny 2 coming in September will include all currently available expansions, although season passes will be sold separately. That may well include the current Season of Arrivals, which has been extended from its original end date in September into November. That move was made due to the delay of Beyond Light, which was pushed from September to November 10.
It was also reiterated that Destiny 2 is among the many games being optimized for Xbox Series X. Specifically, that version will run at 4K and 60 frames per second. That frame rate is especially notable because no existing console version runs at 60fps, including the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions. Load times are often a major source of complaints for console players, so we’ll have to see how much things are improved on that front using the Series X’s SSD.
