With the launch of Shadows from the Deep, the next expansion of Destiny 2, Bungie will revolutionize the system of microtransactions and will sharply divide the cosmetic objects from the gameplay.
This means that all the content acquired through the Silver or the opening of the Light Engrams of the current season (which must necessarily be purchased, given that the free ones will only contain old objects) will have no impact on the gameplay. Whether it is a Spectrum shell or a set of armor, these objects will not have specific features and will become pure and simple skins to apply to objects in your inventory.
However, this new system will allow players to buy all the items they want with Light Powder, which can be achieved by completing various weekly goals. Every seven days the store will be updated with a selection of items just like it is now and players will be able to choose which to take based on their availability. From October, moreover, the Everversum can be seen directly from the game menu and the various packages will be discounted if you were in possession of one or more objects contained in them.
Bungie then explained that the revenues of microtransactions are not currently vital to the study, but it is still very useful revenue that can be invested in the creation of new content. It is enough to think of the incredible success achieved by the ornaments of the Whisper of the Worm, which generated enough profits to allow the development of the Ora Zero business, that of the Pandemic Perfected.
We remind you that Destiny 2 Shadows from the Deep will arrive slightly later than expected and can be played from next October 1, 2019. However, very little is missing for the debut cross-save in Destiny 2, which will arrive next week for all players.
