Destiny 2 had a busy week last week, with the Director’s Cuts highlighting the updates.
The Director’s Cuts were presented in two parts, with Part 1 acting as a retrospective on what worked well and what didn’t, and Part 2 discussing the RPG elements. A Part 3 is upcoming and will discuss Shadowkeep.
Customization was discussed as well with respect to Armor 2.0 and Shadowkeep.
Cross Save is coming Wednesday August 21 to all platforms. Here are the details:
Safeguarding Your Steam Account
Next Tuesday, August 20, Steam linking is scheduled to go live for all players on Bungie.net.
Steam linking is the first step for PC players to migrate their Destiny 2 accounts from Battle.net later this year and is required before players with linked PC accounts can activate cross save.
Because account security is vital, we strongly encourage players to setup Steam Guard two-factor authentication. For a comprehensive guide on setting up Steam Guard on your mobile device, please visit Steam’s support page.
For more information on securing your Destiny account, please see our Account Security Guide.
Cross Save: August vs. October
Next Wednesday, August 21, cross save is scheduled to become available for all Destiny 2 players on Bungie.net.
Before this feature goes live, we’d like to set expectations on how the cross save experience will evolve following the launches of New Light and Shadowkeep on October 1.
Expansion Destinations and Activities
When cross save launches on August 21, cross-save-enabled players will not be able to access expansion destinations or activities from platforms where they do not own that expansion license until the corresponding expansion is purchased on that platform.
For example: A cross-save-enabled player who owns Forsaken on their Xbox One account, but not on PlayStation 4, will not be able to launch into the Dreaming City on PlayStation 4 when cross saving their Xbox One characters.
With the arrival of New Light on October 1, we’re changing how players access destinations and activities for content that they do not own. For more information on New Light, please see our New Light page.
When cross save launches on August 21, cross-save-enabled players who earn gear on platforms where they do not own Forsaken will receive that gear at below-Forsaken Power levels until Forsaken is purchased on that platform.
For example: A cross-save-enabled player on a 750 Power character who owns Forsaken on their Xbox One account, but not on PlayStation 4, will receive all powerful gear drops at 380 Power when earned on PlayStation 4 while cross saving their Xbox One characters.
These Power restrictions will be removed in Update 2.6.0 with the launches of New Light and Shadowkeep later this year.
