Today Bungie has released the next-gen versions of Destiny 2 on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5, a completely free upgrade for Destiny 2 players. The new consoles will allow Destiny fans to experience their favourite game in glorious 60fps and 4K resolution (Xbox Series S will run at 1080p, 60fps).

In addition, anyone who wants to test their mettle in the Crucible on next-gen consoles can opt to set the iconic PVP mode to 120fps on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

Those who own Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles will still be able to play with friends who are on the next-gen versions, as Destiny 2 owners will be able to play across console generation in the same console family. Also, owners of Destiny 2 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will get free upgrades to the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5 version of Destiny 2 for all existing content.

Bungie is excited to bring Destiny 2 home to the newest generation of consoles, with a keen eye on what this may bring in the future for console players.

As part of Season of the Hunt, returning from the original Destiny is the fan-favorite Exotic Hand Cannon Hawkmoon. Work with Crow to reclaim and restore this storied weapon.

Return to the realm of the IX with the Prophecy dungeon. Face hordes of Taken and manipulate reality to solve intricate puzzles alongside fellow Guardians. What was once above is now below. And what was once Light is now Dark.
