This might possibly be the best of both worlds? Maybe?

Yesterday, Kotaku reported on rumors they heard about microtransaction coming to the popular social shooter Destiny. They also talked about Bungie using the money gained through those transactions to fund DLC, allowing the developer to give it away for free.

This is all part of a new plan that could start as early as this month, according to two people familiar with Destiny's development. Rather than sell big expansion packs like they did last year, Bungie is planning on giving out quests and missions for free, sources say. This will likely involve big drops every few months until the fall of 2016 but could also include trickles of smaller stuff throughout the year.

That means the game's next paid expansion will be Destiny 2 in the fall of 2016, as has been known for a while now. That'll be $60.

And then Oct. 6, Bungie confirmed it:

This coming Tuesday, October 13th, Tess Everis will return to The Tower with a new look, a new storefront, and some new items to sell, courtesy of Eververse Trading Company. Initially, Tess will offer eighteen brand new emotes. Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector's Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won't impact the action game in any way.

To acquire these items, you'll first need to pick up some "Silver," a new in-game currency that will be available for purchase through the store associated with your console. Images and descriptions for each available emote, along with pricing information for Silver will be made available Tuesday, October 13th, alongside the launch of the in-game storefront right here on Bungie.net as soon as the content is live.



So if you want to customize your guardian for a small price, you can!

If you want free DLC, you get that too!

If you don't want either, you don't have to worry about it at all!

See, best of both worlds.

Besides the first piece of DLC (which is just a horde mode) out today called Clash in the Clouds there will be two story based episodes out later where you play in Rapture called Burial at Sea. Burial at Sea will be set one day before Rapture's collapse, and the entire story arc will be told in two episodes. The overall experience will be improved by having better gameplay, and Levine says that this DLC will have new Vigors/Plasmids, the sky-lines, Big Daddies, and more. In Burial at Sea you will also be able to play as Elizabeth. Clash of the Clouds will cost $4.99 and each episode of Burial at Sea will be $14.99. You can get all the DLC by buying the season pass for $19.99.

What do you think of the revealed DLC?
