Expect even better frame rates on the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions of Destiny 2, at least in PvP.

Destiny 2's latest big expansion, Beyond Light, is now live. It's a new chapter in Destiny 2, reworking how the game is played with the new Stasis abilities while removing some older content from the game--although some players are struggling to log in. But while Beyond Light is a big new step for Destiny 2, there's another one on the horizon: the next-generation versions of the game. Now we know that the new versions of Destiny 2 will have an even smoother multiplayer experience, running at 120 fps on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

Bungie made the announcement on an Xbox livestream, although it didn't provide too many more details. Bungie confirmed that the PS5 will also support 120 fps in the Crucible, with more information coming soon.

Still, 120 fps in the Crucible, Destiny 2's PvP multiplayer offering, is a huge boost over the current console versions, though, which run at 30 fps. Bungie previously said the next-generation versions of Destiny 2 on Xbox Series X, Series S, and PlayStation 5 will run at 60 fps. Those versions aren't available yet--they launch on December 8, so if you're playing Destiny 2 on a Series X/S today or a PS5 later this week, you'll be running backwards-compatible versions of the game. When the next-gen versions do launch, however, they'll be free upgrades for anyone who already purchased Beyond Light.

The release of Beyond Light came with an extensive update that reworks a bunch of Destiny 2 systems--check out the full patch notes here.
