The release date of The Destiny 2 Shadowkeepers seems to be the start of a busy week. We are getting the significant new expansion for PS4, PC and Xbox One, but that’s not all – there’s also PC migration for us. Gamers are now able to switch over from Steam to Blizzard as part of the Destiny 2 Shadowkeep launch.
You might want to watch closely the latest news from Bungie, who has all the details about maintenance and the server downtime.
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep will be launched on Tuesday, the 1st of October for all platforms. However, before this takes place, it would be taken offline for maintenance. It will happen for all three platforms. During this maintenance, those PC players that linked their Steam accounts to their Bungie profile will have the Silver, and the Guardians transferred from Battle.net to Steam.
One of the maintenance processes are done, and the game is officially launched, it would be easier for players to get their Steam linked with their Bungie profile. They will automatically get access to their Silver and Guardians. But those who migrate on PC need to keep in mind that there would be a delay in the transfer of their Destiny 2: Forsaken licenses from Battle.net to Steam. This link continues in the background until they are complete, so you can do whatever you want to while the process is taking place.
PC players can still access all the Destiny 2 content that does not rely on the Forsaken license. The same goes for the Shadowkeep content – but only if you own it on Steam. The New Light content will also be available for everyone, and for free.
