No. No partial update for Xbox Series X or PS5. You MUST re-download the entire specific Series X/PS5 version of the game to take advantage of the new features. P.S. logging
in now to PS5 to check, it should be live in like 2 minutes. Let's keep each other informed and help others with any problems, cheers Guardians!
Perfect, let me know when you see it. I'll check through the app

copying patch 2.06 for now and i'm discovering how ps5 handle the thing for ps4 games on external drive.
patch downloaded on ssd and then copied to external...this is already ongoing for more than 5 minute (and it's only 34%)
can i dl ps5 version now if i remove ps4 game ? is the ps5 considered a new game with its own trophy like spider-man ? (a thing poorly handled)

Is this an official PS5 game that needs to be installed on the internal storage or can I keep it on my external drive?

It should be a PS5 native game which means it has to use the SSD and the DS.

Nothing for Series S?

It‘a a new client and a full redownload for next gen consoles including series S.

If you were playing Beyond Light on series S/X or Ps5 this last month... you were playing it BC

This is the proper next gen version...

PS - patch notes indicate HdR bugs have been fixed.... THANK GOD

PS5 version has to go on the SSD. It tried to make me download both versions, so make sure it is the PS5 version.
Is this possible on Xbox too or does it just automatically download the best version for the console you have? Also I wonder why the XSX version of the game is 10GB larger.

Smart Delivery automatically grabs the best version for the console you are on.

Not sure if anyone cares but the app is updated on iOS as well.

It’s been broken on the PSN side of things since Beyond Light launch... made raiding with randoms even more difficult... hopefully that’s resolved now (which I assume it is).

I’m just here at work ready to bail and get going.

I must make Shaxx proud today

70GB "upgrade" hit... so this is gonna drop from like over 100GB to 70GB for the upgraded version? Damn! I've been keeping around 200GB of extra storage on my SX internal just to make sure i had space for these updates. If it overall drops to 70GB i'll be damn happy.

I never raid, I'm a decent player but no one I know does it. I hope to find a raid Sherpa soon on ps5.

the official app is the best option for that btw.

Well, don’t go in blind. I would suggest making the fireteam yourself. You’ll probably get a group of newcomers but I’d say that’s still a start...

My wife has chosen a poor time to use the living room as her office. I can’t claim ignorance and blame the local provider if her zoom calls start crashing out because of my downloads!

I really should just watch a video first too shouldn't I... If others were not relying on me to carry my weight in it I'd be happy to just monkey around on my own till I got it

There’s only thing that sucks about this...

And that’s now being forced to use the DualSense since I doubt this version will support my PS4 esperg pads.

Dual Sense is complete trash for shooters... just in case no one mentioned it LoL

Destiny 2 has easy cheevos? I think it has to be massive time sinker...


It's live, you should have update ready or something
Doesn't help that some of the achievements are unobtainable now as they removed the content required to unlock them.
My guess it's going to be auto pop if you have platinum'ed it on ps4. That's how steam achievements worked for me.

Why so, those aaptive triggers? Because that's what bothered me in CoD: BO CW....when I was at my brothers house, where I get my hands on PS5.

I would turn that function off personally. No, it’s the squishiness of the buttons and the travel time on triggers. You definitely want more stiffness for action heavy games.

Don’t get me wrong I can adapt to anything... but I’m still not too happy with dual sense when it comes to shooters and action games

After navigating the idiocy that is the PS5 OS, I got the proper version of Destiny running and made it through the queue. It is awesome. When you change your field of view, make sure to press the accept changes button or you'll be stuck with the old awful FOV.

I want to give a try.
I will download it.

There are any harm to somebody that doesn't have the last expansion? I have only up to Warmind.

The differences are due compression algorithms.

Yeah you would be missing out on all the new awesome stuff.

You need to buy an Xbox with GPU ASAP so you get access to all the new content for free :p

That is nice but I only want to test to see the difference... I believe it won't have any impact.
I won't play Desitny 2 anymore.

Maybe if they release back the old Destiny content.

I just looked at a live stream of the update while it's downloading and I'm so hyped to finally get fluid Destiny 2. So excited to get back into it

I don't think this game has adaptive triggers support on PS5 but the guns do rumble in sync with the haptics. I hope they can patch it in.
