Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is the first expansion since Bungie has left Activision. This is also the first time when the game has been on Steam, and it gained quite the following. In this particular expansion, you are coming back to the moon as you try to find Eris Morn. There are numerous rituals happening here and lots of different enemies that will make the gameplay very immersive and unique.
The Destiny 2: Shadowkeep campaign is not that long. It can be anywhere from 4-6 hours depending on how much you play. But as we know, what really stands out in here is the gameplay. You have to eliminate all the grunts as you try to reach the Arena where the real battles begin and your enemies will be there to tackle you and eventually eliminate you as fast as possible.
What makes Destiny 2: Shadowkeep great is the setting itself. The Moon is just a pleasure to explore and, in this case, it looks amazing. The gameplay might be shooting-focused more often than not, but for the most part it’s just great to explore the moon and kill enemies here and there all the time.
Since we went to the moon before, there are some places that you will actually like visiting like the Traitor’s Ketch for example. The campaign ending is abrupt, which means they might be teasing even more expansions coming down the line. That being said, you will have the 950 hard cap to go towards, and that means dealing with all kinds of different challenges and attacks. There’s a focus on bounties, there’s a new raid, crucible PvP matches and Strike missions, so the content is definitely there.
There’s a new Nightfall variant which has a variety of curated modifiers that will boost their number as you increase the difficulty. Having this type of stuff added to the game definitely improves the experience and it just pushes the boundaries when it comes to value and quality as a whole. You will get used to the game really fast, and you will find it quite commendable and a lot of fun as you go along here.
There are new weapons in here, lots of legendaries, so the expansion does bring you plenty of new loot to focus on. The expansion is also bringing in some new armor statistics that will be pretty fun to focus on.
As a whole, we found that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is still a very engaging shooter and while the grind for newer stuff is there, Shadowkeep at least gives a purpose and it encourages you to constantly push that experience to the next level.
The game shows that Destiny 2 has evolved, but it’s still not in its final form and more stuff is coming. That’s what really pushes the boundaries here, the gameplay experience and how fun it really gets, you should totally consider giving it a shot and then going from there. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a wonderful expansion and it shows that Bungie does a very good job at expanding the universe they built.
