This year’s edition of the BlizzCon convention debuted with a gratifying announcement: until November 18, 2018the game Destiny 2 can be downloaded for free via the Battle.net app (this being permanently attached to the user account), being offered as a right gift for all PC gamers who do not own it yet. The promotion is available both to existing Battle.net users and to those who create a new account. Go to account.blizzard.com/gifts and follow the instructions to activate the game.
It’s not the first time that those from Activision Blizzard are very generous in this regard Destiny 2.
