Destiny 2: Witch Queen's upcoming Dungeons not included in Standard Edition or Season Pass

By Sean Carey,
If you're a Destiny 2 player, it looks like you're going to need to stump up some extra cash to access new Dungeons coming with The Witch Queen expansion next year.

Previously, Dungeons in Destiny 2 have always been included in the game's various expansions and Season Passes, but that's not the case with the upcoming Witch Queen expansion, at least not for the standard edition anyway. To get access to the two Dungeons, you'll need to purchase the deluxe edition, which costs $79.99/£69.99 or pick them up separately, though pricing has not been revealed. The Dungeons will also not be included in any of the Season Passes. It appears that Bungie has already started selling Dungeons with the Destiny 2: Bungie 30th Anniversary pack ($24.99/£21.99), which includes one new Dungeon, a bunch of cosmetic items, and several weapons, including the famously ridiculous Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher from the original game. At the moment, it looks like Gjallarhorn is only available in this special pack.

Bungie community manager Cozmo23 clarified all of this on Reddit recently after there was some confusion regarding the various editions. Naturally, the clarification has been downvoted into oblivion. Cozmo23 said, "If you get the Digital Deluxe Edition of The Witch Queen you will receive the expansion, all four Seasons for the next year, and the two Dungeons. If you get the Standard Edition, you can still upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to get the Dungeons later. We will also be offering a separate way for you to purchase the Dungeons in the future, but they will not be included in the Season Passes."

Naturally, players across the internet are pretty upset over something that was once included in various expansions and in Season Passes that will cost them extra, especially after Bungie recently announced it was vaulting paid content from the game.
