Next-gen Upgrade for Destiny 2 Requires Downloading (Again)

I guess it will suck for gamers with a slow connection. The Xbox Series X upgrade for Destiny 2 is around 70GB, while the PS5 is around 67GB … Ouch!

Taken from Engadget … Bungie said Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 owners will need to download the game again, whether they’ve been playing it on the new consoles since launch or not.

For those with an Xbox Series X or Series S, that means a download that comes in at about 70GB. Meanwhile, PlayStation 5 owners will have to download 67GB worth of files. What’s more, you won’t be able to pre-load the update before version 3.0.1 of the game goes live, as “pre-loads are usually only available for expansion type patches and are not available for hotfixes or seasonal updates,” according to Bungie.

All of that is a bummer, but not too surprising. If you’re currently playing Destiny 2 on one of the new consoles, you’re doing so through backward compatibility and Bungie needs to deliver all the assets and code your system needs to run the game in its enhanced state. Most ‘next-gen’ updates for previous generation games like Control will likely work in the same way. Still, once you get the update, it will all be worth it as you’ll be able to play the game at up to 4K and 120 frames per second, depending on the console and gameplay mode.
