The latest and final planned Destiny 2 expansion, The Final Shape, launches Feb. 27. The pre-order format for this expansion follows the same structure as previous tentpole launches for Destiny 2, like Beyond Light, Witch Queen, Lightfall, and Shadowkeep.

The Final Shape has a standard edition that provides access to the campaign and gives you three new supers, plus a new location to explore. Alternatively, you can also pre-order The Final Shape campaign that’s bundled with the annual pass. The pass grants access to a year’s worth of post-release content, which will include story missions, dungeons, exotic quests, and more.

The Final Shape is taking a different approach to its post-release content. While previous expansions featured four seasons spread across roughly twelve months following their respective launches, The Final Shape will be followed by three episodes, each lasting 18 weeks. The key difference here is that while the seasonal content was free for everyone, the episodic content is locked behind a purchase of The Final Shape.

Pre-ordering the standard edition of The Final Shape will get you access to the first episode, while the annual pass will get you into all three. Bungie has stated that each episode will include its own season pass, but hasn’t provided details regarding standalone pricing.

Pre-ordering any edition of the game before the Feb. 27 launch grants instant access to some in-game items and cosmetics, which can be redeemed via the special deliveries kiosk in The Tower. However, these rewards vary based on which edition of the game you purchase. Below, we’ve outlined the contents and rewards you can expect to receive from each version of the game, and how you can reserve your copy.
