On Tuesday, Bungie unveiled Destiny 2: Beyond Light, the game’s fall expansion and the introduction of the long-awaited Darkness. The studio also unveiled Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals, which launched on Tuesday, the new season that serves as a prologue to the fall expansion. Bungie also clarified some information around Destiny 2’s next-generation console ports.
According to Bungie, Destiny 2 will launch on both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 this holiday — it’s currently unclear if the next-gen version of Destiny 2 will be available on launch day for either console. The new version of the game will run at 60 frames per second, and offer 4K resolution for players.
Players who already own expansions like Forsaken or Shadowkeep — or buy Beyond Light on current-generation hardware — will be able to upgrade to the next-generation versions for free. To get the free upgrade, players will need to stay within the same console family, meaning Xbox One purchases will only transfer to Series X, with the same being true for PS4 to PS5.
Bungie will likely confirm the release date of Destiny 2 for next-generation consoles once Microsoft and Sony have confirmed the console release dates.
Bungie will launch Destiny 2: Beyond Light for Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on Sept. 22.
