Bungie details Destiny 2’s next-gen future, including free PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades

Bungie has detailed how the shift to Destiny 2 on next-generation consoles will work, with the company giving information on the next several years of expansions and promising free upgrades to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of the game for all existing content.

NEW YORK, June 09, Jun 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — Wall Street Reporter, the trusted name in financial news since 1843, has published reports on…

Destiny 2 is coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and today Bungie has given additional details on just what that transition will look like when the ports release this holiday season.

First off, Bungie is promising the next-gen versions of Destiny 2 will support 60fps and 4K resolution on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, marking a significant jump from the 30fps / 1080p version of the game on current-generation consoles.

Despite those improvements, Bungie is promising that the cross-generation versions will still be fully compatible with each other: PlayStation 5 owners will be able to play Destiny 2 with friends on the PS4 version, and Xbox Series X customers will have cross-play with the Xbox One version. More importantly, Bungie also teased that it was working on cross-platform play for sometime in 2021, which would finally make it possible for Xbox and PlayStation players to enjoy Destiny 2 together.

As part of that commitment to supporting Destiny 2 on both current-generation and next-gen consoles, Bungie has also announced that current Destiny 2 owners on PS4 and Xbox One will get free upgrades to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game for all existing content.

The Xbox version will rely on Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program (which offers cross-purchasing for the two console generations for participating titles). But the news is particularly notable for PlayStation fans, as it marks the first developer commitment toward offering some sort of similar cross-buy program for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

That said, it’s still not clear whether Sony will be offering a formal program for developers to offer free upgraded versions for other games (like, say, Cyberpunk 2077 or Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, both of which have pledged support for Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program). The free-to-play nature of Destiny 2 makes it harder to tell if this is some kind of official Sony program or if Bungie is just relying on the fact that it operates a live-service game similar to Fortnite that allows the company to be more generous when it comes to honoring play purchases across console generations.

It’s also important to note that Bungie’s cross-purchasing will only apply within console families — buying the upcoming Beyond Light expansion on Xbox One will get you the Xbox Series X copy for free, but you’ll still need to pay again if you want to play it on the PlayStation consoles, PC, or Stadia.

Bungie also teased more about the future of how Destiny 2 will work for players as the game continues to grow, showing off its next three years of major expansions, including this year’s Beyond Light, 2021’s The Witch Queen, and 2022’s Lightfall.

Additionally, though, Bungie announced a new “Destiny Content Vault,” which will see current and past Destiny and Destiny 2 content cycled in and out of the game over time. For example, this fall will see the Cosmodrome area from the original Destiny return to the live game, with classic content including original strikes and the Vault of Glass raid set to join it over the next few months and into 2021. Some less current content — like the Curse of Osiris campaign — will be removed from the game later this year to make room for the continual waterfall of new areas and modes.

Gas system improvement work at King County’s Houghton Closed Landfill in Kirkland begins June 10

Gas system improvement work at King County’s Houghton Closed Landfill in Kirkland begins June 10

King County’s Solid Waste Division will begin a gas system improvement project at the Houghton Closed Landfill in Kirkland on June 10. Trail users north of the Taylor Ball Fields should use caution when approaching the work area, and to keep pets leashed for their safety.

A gas system improvement project at King County’s Houghton Closed Landfill in Kirkland is set to begin on June 10. The work will take place on landfill property north of the Taylor Ball Fields, and on the east side of a popular walking trail close to 65th Ave. N.E. No evening or weekend work is planned.

Neighbors and trail users may experience noise and vibration from heavy equipment, and a portion of the trail may be closed periodically during work hours to enable workers and equipment to access the work site.

King County’s Solid Waste Division is conducting the work to repair problems that were detected during routine monitoring in mid-May, when testing at one of the 33 gas probes on the landfill property showed higher than normal levels of methane. King County promptly notified health and regulatory agencies, and out of an abundance of caution, conducted free air quality testing at dozens of neighboring homes. Tests results to date show that no homes have been affected by this incident.

The Houghton Landfill closed in the 1960s, and the gas system was installed in the 1990s to comply with stricter environmental rules to manage the methane that’s produced from the decaying organic material buried there. People can learn more about King County’s closed landfills online. Those with questions about the project can call King County’s Solid Waste Division’s main office at 206-477-4466.
