Big-budget titles continue to get bigger and bigger. Bungie has sent out an email revealing that Destiny 2’s latest expansion, Shadowkeep, will up the hard drive space requirement to 165 GB. That isn’t the most ridiculous install size out there (ARK: Survival Evolved has reportedly ballooned to over 200 GB), but it’ll definitely reduce a sizable chunk of storage for gamers who have transitioned to SSDs.
Bungie has also confirmed that Destiny 2 PC will be moving to Steam on October 1. Players can link their accounts and transfer their characters, gear, collections, and game purchases from Battle.net to Steam beginning on August 20. The Cross Save feature, which allows players to use their Guardians on any supporting platform (PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, Stadia), is expected to launch one day later (August 21).
Players will finally be able to play on any platform without losing their in-game progress. Shadowkeep comes with some really neat features like Armor 2.0, Finishing Moves and new Eververse changes this fall. The future for the Destiny franchise is looking very bright indeed.
