We’re just hours away from tomorrow’s big reveal of the first gameplay from Destiny 2, and we’re already expecting great things from Bungie on the project, including more looting possibilities, bigger boss encounters and, of course, more chances to team up with friends to clean house. But some early details may indicate that we’re in for a number of improvements into the Destiny universe this time around.
A NeoGAF user by the name of ThatsMyTrunks has posted some details regarding features for the forthcoming game, but one that’s particularly worth noting is the ability to cross-save between two totally different platforms – the PlayStation 4 and the PC.
Here’s the rundown of possible features for the game:
- Destiny 2 will run at 60FPS
- The PS4 and PC will feature cross-saving, but Microsoft hasn't made that feature available yet for the Xbox One (this does not suggest Cross-Play is coming, simply the ability to pick up game saves across platforms).
- The game has been optimized for the PS4 Pro, Project Scorpio and "next PS4"
- PS4 exclusive content (known)
Let’s address each one. First off, it sounds like Bungie may be going the extra mile with the game’s graphics, bumping up the speed to 60 frames per second up from the original game’s 30. Plus, its ability to adapt to the PlayStation 4 Pro to somehow make the visuals even better does sound pretty damn cool. However, it wouldn’t be that big a surprise, considering that most developers are trying to optimize their games for the likes of PlayStation 4 Pro and Project Scorpio anyway.
Next up is the cross-save feature. We haven’t seen something like this used that often, like since the days that Portal 2 did it for PlayStation 3 and PC. However, it would probably be something of interest to people who pick up two versions of Destiny 2 to play with their friends.
Finally, well, the PS4 exclusive content isn’t a surprise, since Activision has a big ongoing deal with Sony anyway with the Call of Duty franchise, so naturally it’s happening with this series as well.
Bungie nor Activision have commented on these rumors, so take them with a grain of salt for right now. We’ll have all the information from the game’s reveal tomorrow, so be sure to check back.
Destiny 2 releases on September 8th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
