Anyone getting Shadowkeep tomorrow/today UK time?

Got it preloaded and just waiting for the servers to be switched on.

I'm hoping it equals Forsaken, which is probably the best thing Bungie have ever put out with regards to Destiny. I actually liked the Season Pass model too, as though it was a little grindy at times, I do think that they did enough for seasoned players to keep the game going over the course of a year. Each season was worth a tenner in my eyes.

Also as a reminder, the base game and all the year one stuff, and the Forsaken season pass (but not Forsaken itself) is free to play now and worth a try. Some of the Year 3 Shadowkeep stuff is going to be accessible too, such as the Moon patrol zone.

Only had a quick poke before servers fell over

New title music is nice

Might as well try this, now it’s free. Just... a 96GB download first.

Haven't and am not currently planning on buying Shadowkeep but I'm going back on tonight to have a look around and...yeah. I've been in the queue for about 20 minutes now.

I just can't be arsed with the constant Bungie buff everything/whoops you're too powerful let's nerf everything cycle any more. Waste of time getting invested in levelling up equipment that'll just be rendered worse because they can't balance a game.

I dunno, that happens with every live service game and I've never really felt any of the nerfs too badly. Like, it took me ages to get the IKELOS shotgun aka teh best wepon in da game and Bungie nerfed it almost immediately after. In doing so, they buffed another gun, Lord of Wolves, so I started using that instead.

Permanent balance is impossible when you're constantly adding content.

Given up on this for the night, the queue isn't going down and apparently people are getting kicked left right and centre.

I was watching a stream of this last night, is the opening area of the expansion that moon crucible map from Destiny 1? Very Bungie if so.

The most of the (layout at least) of the moon area will be very familiar to anyone that’s played D1

Think I’m nearing the end of the ‘basic’ campaign

Not a patch on Foresaken in terms on engagement but will have to see how it opens up afterwards

I've already got vanilla Destiny 2, but if I download this free version game I continue where I left off?
Also do I need PS Plus to play?

I think if you haven't completed the campaign before this then your progress will be wiped. I think you can play without PS Plus but the stuff you can do is pretty restricted.

New raid looks pretty boring so far.

For returning players who don't have Shadowkeep this is...bad. There're no markers on the Director at all anymore, so I've literally no idea which activities will give me drops worth farming.

It's incredibly offputting.

That's an odd design decision.
I can't see any reason they would remove such useful information as like you say all it does is frustrate people who may be considering getting Shadowkeep.

I think it's just the usual daily and weekly stuff minus the raid?

This is what I see when I log in. The gold mark against the Tower leads to nothing, incidentally. The quest on the left is Shadowkeep based too.

I downloaded the base game the other night after seeing on here that it was free. Haven't got round to giving it a go yet, but what should I be expecting? Is it any good? I'm not interested (at all, in any way) in spending any money on this so I'm not going to be getting any of the DLC, is it worth bothering with the base game and does that have any longevity?
