One of Destiny 2: ShadowkeepThe most interesting new features are cross-save, which will allow players to switch between Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Steam for Windows PC, and Xbox One without losing progress.
But cross-save is a complicated tool, and it requires a little explanation to understand. In Out of the Shadows ViDoc and through a small page on their website, Bungie has begun to reveal details about how cross-save will work.
One account to manage everything
When cross-save is displayed, players who have multiple accounts need to choose which account they want to save cross.
Players glimpse this UI during ViDoc (seen above), and it shows players connecting one account to several consoles. After the player connects them Destiny 2 profile to their Google Stadia account, Xbox Live account, Playstation Network ID, or Steam profile, they must be able to sign in, make progress on Destiny 2 character, get out, and enter another place with the same progress.
For players who already have separate accounts on other platforms – PlayStation 4 players who move to a PC, for example – adding cross-save won't delete the longer characters.
What about account merging?
Players who have multiple accounts on multiple consoles will not be able to merge accounts. For example, players with Warlock on PC and Titan on the Xbox will not be able to tie both characters to the same account. Players must choose which account will be dominant.
It seems that the players won't be able to combine Silver – real currency in Destiny – between accounts.
How about cross-play?
Cross-play – meaning players on PC can play with players on the PlayStation 4 or Stadia – and cross-save often goes hand in hand. But this feature will not come to Destiny 2 next to cross-save.
However, in an interview with Jason Schreier, Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy of Bungie's creative leadership team called cross games as something they finally wanted to witness. Destiny 2.
Do you need to buy expansion again?
Expansion licenses are the most complicated aspects Destiny 2New cross-save feature.
If you plan to play on multiple consoles, you might be wondering what exactly you should buy to make it Destiny 2 work. Do you need to buy everything on the second console?
To play expansion content, you need expansion on the platform where you play. For example, the Last Wish attack is part of Left behind expansion. If you already have it for a Windows PC, but you want to play it on the PlayStation 4, you need to Left behind on PS4.
But if you want to run around in Dreaming City, or explore the basement of Shattered Throne, or finish and Left behind Exotic adventures, you will be fine with the free game version. Destiny 2: New Light allows players to explore every world, play PvP, Gambit, and run Strikes.
It should also be noted that if you have it Left behind in one location and switch to another location, the game will not limit your loading. So it's only because you can't finish Left behind Exotic weapon search on a platform where you don't have Left behind, You can still use that Exotic weapon after you have it.
If you've ever been confused by what you have, it looks like the cross-save settings menu will track all your licenses on your platform.
Can I do a cross-save now?
Cross save hasn't come out. But on their website dedicated to cross-rescue, Bungie said the feature will arrive later this summer. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep not out until September 17 – which we consider the autumn release date.
Chances are Bungie will release a cross-save beforehand Shadow Guard, so players can start experiencing the magic of cross-storage before new content comes out.
You can register for cross-save notifications on the Bungie website so they will send you an email when the feature is available.
