How to Add Expansions Through Game Pass

Players seeking to download Destiny 2 expansions through Xbox Game Pass can do so in one of three ways.
  1. Navigating to the Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Destiny 2: Forsaken, and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep store pages and selecting the "Install" option. 

  2. Browsing the collection of titles available in Game Pass. Destiny 2, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Destiny 2: Forsaken, and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep can all be found separately via browsing.

  3. Installing Destiny 2 via "My Games and Apps" on the Xbox console. The ‘Full Library’ option includes a section of all games included in Game Pass. This space will only contain the base game, as it is only populated by actual apps that can be launched from an Xbox. After installing Destiny 2 from here, players can acquire expansions from the options above.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  I am a Game Pass subscriber and have access to Destiny 2 expansions, but I can't share game content with other accounts on the system.

Verify you have installed the expansions to your system. Game content cannot be shared with other accounts until it has been installed. For more information on playing with multiple accounts, please visit our page on playing Destiny content on multiple consoles or accounts.

 Q. Why is a Destiny 2 expansion asking me to pay when I am already a Game Pass subscriber?

There are different expansion options available on the Microsoft Store. Some Destiny 2 expansions don't include a Season Pass. Seasons are not included with a Game Pass subscription, so players will need to be sure they have selected the Destiny 2 expansion to install the version that is part of Game Pass. Browsing all Game Pass titles can ensure the correct version is selected.

 Q. Are Destiny 2 seasons included in Game Pass?

Destiny 2 seasons are not included in a Game Pass subscription. Players can gain access to the current season by purchasing a Season Pass for Silver via the in-game "Season" menu. 

 Q. Why can I not open Destiny 2 after downloading an expansion?

The Destiny 2 base game still needs to be downloaded to the console. 

 Q. How can I receive assistance with issues relating to Game Pass? 

Please contact Xbox Support for issues regarding Game Pass.

 Q. Why can I no longer access expansion content after it has already been downloaded?

It's recommended to check @BungieHelp on Twitter for any information on service outages. If no outages have been announced, players may need to restore their licenses to Destiny content. If that does not solve the issue, it is recommended to contact Xbox Support or Microsoft Store Support
