Destiny 2 PC players can now link their save files from Battle.net to Steam. For those who are unfamiliar, Bungie announced back in July that Destiny 2 would be changing storefronts. The move occured at the end of the company’s partnership with Activision. Since Bungie will take the helm as Destiny 2‘s publisher, they were forced to move the game off of Activision-Blizzard’s storefront. The official migration to Steam will occur in October, so players have until then to officially link their accounts.
Amidst the move to Steam, Destiny 2 cross-saves are still in the works
Bungie has made the move to Steam relatively simple. Simply click on the following link to their website, then link your Battle.net account with your Steam account. From there, players need only wait for the official move to occur in October. The migration will include all of the player’s purchased content, including the base game, characters, annual pass, silver, and expansions.
As for cross-save, Bungie is still working on it. For those who haven’t signed up already, you may want to sign up for notifications. From the details that Bungie has given, signing up for cross-play looks to be just as simple as the migration to Steam. Once cross-play is available, you’ll only need to link your Destiny 2 accounts from the different platforms where you own the game. This is entirely separate from the Steam migration, which will move your save file for you automatically. Please note that silver does not transfer over through cross-saves. And, of course, players will have to own the game on various platforms to take advantage of this feature.
Since Destiny 2: Shadowkeep has been delayed until October, Bungie plans to make more improvements to the upcoming expansion. They have also allowed players to pre-order Shadowkeep on Steam. Once your account has migrated over, all of your characters and gear will be accessible in the new expansion. Ahead of the Shadowkeep expansion, Bungie has listed details about its upcoming Armor 2.0. Our own Jason Rodriguez discussed some of the details on it, noting some of the potential problems.
