Important details to know before jumping into Destiny 2 Shadowkeep

As the big launch day of Bungie’s Destiny 2 expansion, Shadowkeep, continues, there is more to know than just server issues that is bugging the launch. The free-to-play version of the game, New Light, has also launched for those who are new to the game and want to give it a shot with no costs.

In a Twitter thread, Bungie has shared a list of vital information and known issues for players to take note, and some of them can be really significant to the experience.

One of the known issues will require players to delete their characters, if you have started Destiny 2 “right before” the September 30 maintenance that prepped the game for Shadowkeep. This will eliminate the error of your character being shown with 0 power.
