Destiny


 

The preload date for the upcoming Destiny 2 has been confirmed, at least for PlayStation 4 players.

For those that have pre-ordered a digital copy of the game, the game’s PS4 countdown page was recently updated with the date that auto-download is expected to become available. The date is set for September 3rd, three days earlier than the game’s full release.

The preload date for Xbox One players has yet to be announced, although there are reports of Microsoft emails detailing the Xbox One date as September 5th. The PC’s preload date has also yet to be detailed, but as it won’t see a Destiny 2 release until almost two months after the other two platforms, the preload will likely be pushed back a comparable amount of time.

Preload allows players to get all of the game’s necessary data loaded onto their platforms so they can jump into the action the moment the game launches. The game is clocking in at a 68GB download on PS4, so players on any platform will likely want to take advantage of the function.

In other Destiny news, players of the original game can enjoy one last collection of bonuses before making the transition to the sequel. Aside from several commemorative emblems, players will also have one final chance to enjoy the original game’s Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris PvP events later this summer, before the events make the sequel jump.

Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release dropping October 24th.
