CROSS SAVES! Plus everything about the new X-pac

Post by ViciousDS » Fri Jun 07, 2019 8:21 pm

First things first, that is right folks cross saves are coming to destiny 2, this means your progress carries over to any platform you want to play on. I'm assuming just like FFXIV you will most likely have to own the content on that system to access it, but this allows folks with PS4s or Xbox to bring their save to the steam version later this year.


Shadowkeep
is a standalone expansion. You won't need previous expansions to access Shadowkeep, which reinforces Bungie's plan to sell future updates as standalone releases that players can pick and choose from. The expansion will reconnect players with Eris Morn, which suggests the Hive will be heavily involved.


The new raid
will take place in the Black Garden. If you played Destiny 1, you know how important this very vex-y location is.

Armour 2.0
is going to double-down on the stats. It appears as though players' gear will now incorporate more mod slots and you'll be able to slot in multiple types to create much more bespoke build. Bungie talked about how in the past it had shied away from the MMORPG label, but was now doubling down on depth and detail.

Cross-save is coming to Google Stadia, Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Bungie noted that cross-save was always planned for Destiny 2, but "reasons" (presumably Activision's exclusivity deal with Sony) prevented implementation. Now you'll be able to hop between platforms with one account to play with different friend groups.

There will be a renewed focus on PvP.
Crucible players have been complaining about a lack of updates for some time, and though Bungie didn't go to many specifics, it did talk about beloved game types from the past returning.

Exclusives are no more, according to Bungie.
All weapons, armor, maps, and activities will be available across all platforms.

The jump to Steam is happening when Shadowkeep releases, and should expose Destiny to a much larger audience.
It sounds like it won't be difficult for Battle.net players to make the transition, either. Bungie says "current PC players will be able to bring all of their progress and purchases with them, including their Guardians, their vaults, and all of their progress—at no cost. We will have full details on how this migration will work later this summer on Bungie.net"

Shadowkeep will sell for $35
will include the first season of new content following Shadowkeep's release, and as of today all previously released Destiny 2 content—the base game, the expansions, Forsaken, and the annual pass—is being bundled together at a reduced price of $40. All future expansions will be offered on an a la carte basis, meaning you can buy what like, when you like, rather than having to commit to an Annual Pass.


Here are the links for each store where you purchase this complete edition if you want to jump in today. Forsaken will still need to be purchased along with their respectable annual passes. Destiny 2 year 1 is free to play come launch of shadowkeep
