Nearly a month after Microsoft’s next-gen console launch, Bungie is releasing its optimizations for Xbox Series X and S. The free update hits tomorrow.
Cross-gen play was enabled on November 10, but the launch day update – which coincided with Destiny 2: Beyond Light – did not include support for enhanced graphics. That’s about to change with the game’s next update, which is out tomorrow.
According to Bungie (via Xbox Wire):
Destiny 2 will be playable at an incredible 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X. Additionally, both the Series X and the Series S play at a crisp 60 frames per second. This ensures that no matter which version of the Xbox you play on, the fluid gunplay and movement the action MMO is known for takes center stage.
Taking things one step (or 60 steps) further is the new 120Hz Crucible Mode. This new optional mode provides Xbox Series X owners with the ability to increases their maximum FPS on compatible displays to a blistering 120. In high-level PvP where every frame matters, this new mode provides players with the fastest and most responsive Crucible matches available on console.
It’ll be nice to see Destiny 2 take full advantage of the hardware. I may have to jump back into it once my Xbox Series X finally arrives.
