I'd not even thought about this game since trying the trial the first time, until now. It's not terribly memorable, is it?

Wait, they've locked stuff off that was previously available? That is pretty unheard of, nobody has ever actively stripped content out of a game to make it form part of the season pass.

There must be more to it than that, because if it were that simple then the internet protests would have torches and pitchforks out big time.

Edit: Oh wait, turns out they did this with Destiny 1 too and there's already a small storm brewing on Reddit.

My understanding is that they've not so much stripped the content as raised the level requirement for that content (content that is supposed to be end-game stuff), and you can only gain the levels required if you have the new expansion.

It's no less a shitty thing to do; usually these MMO types add new raids rather than moving the cap on existing stuff.

Yeah it's common practice for Destiny, however this is the first time they have also locked a gun off as you need to finish the Prestige Nightfall to unlock some shotgun.

Some people have managed to get a refund for the game from Microsoft as by locking off this content you can no longer get the full achievement points for the game which is against Microsoft's terms of service.

It's a hole I shall be sidestepping letting them dwell alone.

Regardless of the semantics around this, it's absolutely ridiculous. This game hasn't been out for very long on PC and now players are being funneled into buying expansion packs to access content that they used to be able to play with the base game.

People are absolute fucking mugs for accepting this kind of stuff so willingly.
