Destiny 2 returns for the sixth time in the TEST columns of iGamesNews with the new premium paid expansion that just landed on PC, PS4 and Xbox One: Beyond the Light. Is it an investment that is worth gold ($ 40) or are we still going in circles?
Let’s start with the good news: the universe of destiny is finally evolving. Do you remember the darkness that chases the traveler, the counterpart of the halo parasite in Bungie’s newest baby?

The area is quite large, which corresponds to that of a “large” DLC in the Destiny universe. It will offer its share of quests, forgotten sectors, and other public events. If the main mission can be completed in a few hours, in terms of indit content with Au-del de la Lumire
If you didn’t start the game from the Bastion of Shadows, you collect some of your things and your hero will rise to level 1050.
