Destiny 2 PS5

We've known for a while that Destiny 2 will receive a free PS5 upgrade, bringing big improvements on the next-gen system. Well, that upgrade now has a release date: the 8th December 2020. What's more, developer Bungie has detailed everything that you can expect from its looter shooter when it takes advantage of Sony's upcoming console.

Here's a quick breakdown of how Destiny 2 will run on PS5 once the update has been released:

  • 4K resolution
  • 60 frames-per-second
  • Field of view slider
  • Faster load times
  • Cross-generation play with PS4 players

And yes, that does say 'field of view slider'. Bungie elaborates: "We are offering Field of View customization on consoles for the first time. Our goal is to enable a FOV 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." Cool!

It's also worth noting that you'll be able to play Destiny 2 on PS5 before the upgrade is released thanks to backwards compatibility. Load times should be a little shorter, but that's about it.
