Bungie has activated the long awaited cross-save feature for Destiny 2 . This means that you can finally move your Guardians with all their loot to another platform and freely switch between console and PC your free time. To transfer your account information between a PC and PS4, an Xbox One and PS4 or even (in the future) between a PC and Stadia.
First, you should consider some important disclaimers before you enable cross-save for your account:
- For the time being, you must buy the base game again to use it on other platforms. Of course, this will no longer be the case as soon as Destiny 2: New Light releases the free version of the game, on October 1
- In both cases, if you want to access the activities of these extensions, you will need to re-purchase the extensions of the game for the additional platform on which you want to play, such as: Black Armory or the respective raid of each extension. You do not need to purchase the extensions to use all of the expansion-specific equipment and subclasses in Crucible and other basic game activities.
- In addition, Silver ( Destiny 2 ), which you previously purchased, remains bound to your original platform and can not be transferred. So you can redeem your silver before you port your stored data.
(Note: PC players switching from Battle.net to Steam are the exception, as Bungie offers a one-time transfer of Silver, Annual, Extensions and more to the account.)
- When you play already Destiny 2 on two platforms. Enabling Cross-Save overwrites the Guardians on any of these platforms. However, the Bungie FAQs state that Cross-Save can be disabled if you want to get your old characters back. If you disable cross-save, you must wait 90 days before you can reactivate it.
Cross-Save can not be disabled on the PC platform. The conversion from Battle.net to Steam is irreversible, as Destiny 2 will soon be deleted on Battle.net.
- Go to Bungie's cross-save sign-in page. First, log in to the platform where your most important Destiny 2 data (with your favorite Guardians) is stored, regardless of whether it's PlayStation, Xbox, Battle.net, or Steam.
- Then sign in to the account on the platforms to which you want to extend your account. For example, if you start with a PS4 and add an Xbox One account, sign in first to your PlayStation account and then to your Xbox account.
- In my case, my storage is assigned to the Battle.net client on a PC, and I want to be able to play on Steam (with my account in tow) when the game changes on October 1st. My first and last step is to sign in to my Steam account on the Bungie "PC Move" page.
- It's worth noting that PC players can play on Battle.net until October 1st. Console players who enable Cross-Save to port their data from a PS4 or Xbox One can do so on Battle.net. However, you will have to port it again sometime, this time on Steam, before 1 October.
- Regardless of which platform you are switching to and which platform you are switching to, Bungie checks your care by asking you several times if you really do. I want to go through activating Cross-Save. You will also be asked to agree to terms that describe what Bungie will do with your data and to confirm that you grant the Company the right to do so.
- Shortly after you have agreed, you can access your account from the new platforms, assuming you have purchased Destiny 2 to play on. By signing in to your Bungie account online, you can easily see which platforms have access to what content. As you can see in the photo above, Bungie offers useful links on its website that allow you to buy back the extensions and the annual pass.
