The season pass is £29.99 / $34.99. The expansions aren't available individually yet, but we would guess £19.99 / $24.99 each, or something similar.
Ouch. Maybe worth waiting year or two and maybe you get most of released dlcs with the game. Similar to ESO.

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.
Luminous engrams adjust to your power at the point of being decoded, and blues and below auto-decode when you pick them up (which is probably just after they drop), but you make an important point about legendaries and exotics. We'll make an edit!
I say all of the things you just said in the article, and I never say this is pay-to-win. In fact, I say "I wouldn't personally call 'pay-to-win'," not that it's necessarily for me to pass judgement - this is a news piece, not opinion. And it's undoubtedly newsworthy to say that gameplay-affecting items are in loot boxes now.
I'd imagine people that are about to comment on stuff like this would read it first, but... well, you see where I'm going with this.
This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.
An advantage is an advantage - big or small. And if there's a way to pay to gain that advantage over others - then it's pay2win, or at least pay2advantage
All of them should be - that's how it was in the original, at least. It's the strikes that are specifically designed for co-op play, though.
Yeah, I played the beta so we did the firestrike thing. I was wondering since the only campaign mission wasn't coop (I'm guessing it's the first mission?) I was afraid that the coming missions wouldn't be either.
Bungie have been doing maintenance today - it seems to be working again now.
I'm a Bretonnian at heart, but I'm really enjoying my Norsca campaign - Wulfrik's army is unstoppable with the experience bonuses from the Hound. Can't wait to see how they interact with Archaon when he turns up!
I've always been a 40k fan myself (still hoping we don't need another 39,997 planned titles before they can get the IP to make it!), but Bretonnians was definitely my favourite DLC to have been made.
After Games Workshop killed off them, the Empire and humanity as a whole (replacing them with the ascended cult of Sigmar), it was awesome to see the knights return.
Archaon's arrival isn't a locked event, you can choose what you want to do. I won't get into specifics, but it's great fun no matter what you decide!
Good detail - thank you! Sounds like HG are only doing this because of the traction the new BattleTech game is getting, and the fans stand to lose out. A shame.
There is a Robotech movie about to go in production, which will no doubt have a game and a few other side items that they want to have that IP protected.
Sure it's been a while since we've seen American Robotech, but thats about to change and they are prepping for it.
