Best answer: Overall, Beyond Light is absolutely worth it, although it isn’t perfect.
Europa itself is the second thing that makes the expansion worth getting. It’s one of the most beautiful places in all of Destiny 2, and the dynamic weather system Bungie implemented into the game for it means that one second the skies could be clear, and the next, you’ll be trudging through a massive snowstorm. There are also countless secrets hidden in the world space, ranging from secret puzzles that reward you with loot to a series of collectibles that flesh out the backstory of the location.
The only issue I have with Beyond Light is that there isn’t a whole lot of new loot to chase outside of Europa and raid gear. Destiny is a looter shooter at its core; a lack of varied loot to grind for is pretty significant. However, I still think the expansion is more than worth it overall, and thankfully, the gear that is there is pretty great.
