The latest post by Luke Smith included quite a bit of information about what’s happening with Seasons and the Season Pass in Destiny 2. To read the complete post by Luke Smith click here. Below is a brief look at some of the info from the article:
With every Season Pass, you will get everything you’d expect from a Destiny Season (new activities, rewards, a storyline, et cetera), not just the new Season Rank UI and the reward tracks. Like Luke Smith alluded to way back in the first Director’s Cut, Bungie needs more sustainable ways to deliver rewards, and the Season Rank UI is a big step in getting there.
Season Pass Includes:
Here’s a look at what Season Pass owners get in Season of the Undying (which, again, is included with Shadowkeep):
- Season Pass owners get access to a new seasonal activity, the Vex Offensive, which includes:
- Four Legendary Weapon drops.
- Additional weekly and daily bounties.
- Additional weekly challenges with powerful rewards.
- A new weapon quest for an Exotic Bow, Leviathan’s Breath. Exclusive to Season Pass owners.
- A new Exotic Hand Cannon, Eriana’s Vow.
- Awarded on Rank 35 of the free track
- Awarded on Rank 1 of the premium track
- Three seasonal Legendary armor sets (one for each class)
- Collect a complete set during the first 25 ranks of the free track
- NOTE: This is a change from the Annual Pass, where you were required to purchase gear from the Season.
- On the premium track you get all three sets on Rank 1
- These also drop within the Vex Offensive seasonal activity
- If you want versions with higher stat tiers, you’ll need to play Vex Offensive to earn them.
- Collect a complete set during the first 25 ranks of the free track
- Some additional premium track rewards:
- Three universal ornament armor sets (one for each class)
- An Exotic weapon ornament for Eriana’s Vow
- Two Legendary weapon ornaments
- A new finisher
- An Exotic emote
- An Exotic ship
New Light Includes:
All Destiny 2 players, whether you’re coming in with New Light (will be completely free for all players on Oct 01) or are all-in on Shadowkeep and Season of the Undying, will have access to the following:
- Patrolling the Moon destination
- The opening mission of Shadowkeep
- Two new strikes
- Crucible Updates
- Two returning PvP maps from the D1 era—Widow’s Court and Twilight Gap
- Elimination in Crucible Labs
- Armor 2.0 build customization
- Eye of the Gate Lord Seasonal Artifact
- New finishers
- Two new pinnacle weapons: one for Gambit and one for Crucible
- Free Seasonal Rank rewards, which include:
- New Exotic weapon—Eriana’s Vow
- Three Legendary armor sets (1 per class)
- Two Legendary weapons
- Best of Year 2 Bright Engrams
- Glimmer and upgrade modules
Summary about the Season Pass and Premium Tier Passes: From what I currently understand, all versions of Shadowkeep include the Season Pass (with premium tier). Here is the difference between the two version available: The Standard Version ($35) includes one season pass which is Season of the Undying (includes premium tier pass) and the Deluxe Edition ($60) includes four season passes (includes four premium tier passes). I plan on posting/making something asap to better explain all of this. (Currently the Collector’s Edition is sold out and I’m not sure Bungie plans to restock this)
