- We are offering Field of View customization on consoles for the first time. Our goal is to enable a Field of View range similar to that on PC. We’re currently testing these settings to ensure smooth performance across each platform and will have additional details closer to launch.
- There will be noticeable improvements to things like loading the game and inspecting character inventory. However, some load times are dependent on networking and matchmaking. So, loading activities still takes time while you search for opponents.
- For cross-generation play, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S players can play with Xbox One players. PlayStation 5 players can play with PlayStation 4 players.
Destiny 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia.
