Destiny 2 Cross-Saves Coming To All Platforms, Including Stadia And PS4
Bungie announced cross-saves with Google Stadia, and confirmed PS4 is included on its livestream.
Destiny 2 is getting something players have asked for since the release of the game's PC version in 2017. This fall with the release of the Shadowkeep expansion, Destiny 2 will offer cross-saves across all platforms, allowing you to play your Destiny character anywhere.
The announcement first came on Google's Stadia Connect livestream, where Google has finally provided some concrete details about what we can expect from Stadia, its upcoming cloud-based gaming service. Google revealed Stadia's price and release window, as well as the list of games launching on the platform day one. One of those games is Destiny 2, and Google confirmed you'll be able to transfer your previous saves to Stadia.
Google's stream left off one key detail: whether PS4 players would have access to cross-save. But during its livestream, Bungie confirmed that all Destiny 2 platforms would include the capability: Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and PS4.
Meanwhile, Bungie's partnership with Stadia means you'll be able to play the game in any Chrome browser and on a host of other devices. If you choose to pre-order the Stadia Founder's Edition, you'll get some exclusive perks--including a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro. Among Stadia Pro's benefits is a limited-time offer for Destiny 2. All Stadia Pro subscribers will be able to access the entire Destiny 2 experience (the main game, all previous add-ons, the annual pass, and Shadowkeep) on the day the cloud-based gaming service launches.
With Stadia Pro, you also get a few more benefits, including 4K HDR video at 60fps for streaming, a free offering of select games, and a discount on all game purchases. Other than the Stadia Pro subscription, the Founder's Edition also comes with a limited-edition controller, Chromecast Ultra, and a three-month Buddy Pass that you can give to a friend so that they can play games with you. The Founder's Edition is scheduled to release sometime in November 2019, with the basic Stadia experience (which doesn't have all the extra bells and whistles but is free) releasing in 2020.
