Beyond Light has shown that Bungie’s sci-fi shooter has a lot longer in the tank and aims to dominate on next-gen too. Some crucial details are out in the open regarding Destiny 2 on PS5 and Xbox Series X: including its 120 FPS, cross-play, and all-important release date.

Many people are excited to see what the future holds for the PS5 and Xbox Series X’s new AAA blockbuster exclusives. However, lots of hardcore Destiny fans want to know what’s happening with their beloved shooter.

Bungie’s newest expansion pack has supposedly dawned a new era for Destiny 2 and represents a brand new chapter in the game’s legacy. But what can fans look forward to that have already invested in a new console? Let’s have a look at these Destiny 2 PS5 and Xbox Series X details and release date.

Release Date

Let’s get the big one in writing straight away. PS5 and Xbox Series X owners can lock and load their exotic rifles on December 8.

Naturally, the update should embrace all the new facets of each console and see a big performance improvement – especially those pesky load times.

120 FPS

Yes, forget 30fps and even 60fps; we’re moving into the future with full 120fps. PC gamers will scoff at this notion as they have notoriously been able to unlock their frame rates and achieve unimaginable frames-per-second on top-end computers.

Console gamers haven’t had that luxury. The minor caveat to this is that you will need a 120hz TV that can actually support this greater demand. If you have one, look forward to rapid refresh rates and crisper, smoother gameplay.

Also, 120 FPS will only apply to the Crucible. Regular gameplay will run at a locked 60 FPS.

Cross-play

Destiny 2’s next-gen update will also bring about some same brand cross-play as PS5, and PS4 owners will be able to play together, and Xbox Series X and Xbox One players will too. It’s still not quite the universal cross-play that people want, but PlayStation, Xbox, and PC guardians coming together should never be ruled out.

FOV

Console limitations have generally meant that those gamers haven’t been able to experience the same field-of-view as PC gamers. But the power of next-gen is changing the playing field.

One of the biggest examples of this forward-thinking is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The game has a proper FOV option for console gamers to change, allowing players to see more of the world around them. Destiny 2 is also following suit, and the next-gen update will also include a FOV feature.

These are just some of the biggest announcements for Destiny fans to salivate at. When the update becomes available, even more hidden nooks and crannies may be uncovered. If they are, we’ll be the first to let you know about them.

Destiny 2’s Glory Ranks are perfect for flexing your skill and earning rewards in the Crucible. Learn what they are, how to increase your Glory Rank, and see what rewards you can acquire in the process.

Killing waves of A.I is a simple pleasure in FPS games, but there’s a different thrill when it comes to online. Destiny 2’s Crucible mode offers this with intense multiplayer action that also invites players to increase their Glory Rank and net tasty rewards.

Lots of players don’t fully understand the system and how it works, however. So we’ll walk you through the basics, such as what Glory Ranks are, how you can rank them up, and what you can get for doing so.

What are Destiny 2 Glory Ranks?

Destiny 2 uses these as a way of measuring how good a player is, and they can determine what level of rewards you can obtain.

Guardians that want to test themselves have many ranks to power through, and it can help improve your ability, leading to a more successful time doing Raids and other single-player content.

How to rank up Glory Ranks

Glory points are earned by winning matches in the Crucible – a competitive PvP mode in Destiny 2 – with enough points enabling you to move up a Glory Rank.

Taking part in the competitive playlist will allow players to fight against a variety of different skill levels as the game mode favors connection-based matchmaking as opposed to the modern-day norm of skill-based matchmaking.

The Quickplay playlist will not level up your Glory, so instead, make sure you are only sticking to Competitive Crucible modes.

All Destiny 2 Glory Ranks & points required

From beginners starting their first match at Guardian I to veterans who have managed to hit the Max rank ceiling, there are many levels to ascend.

Here is a complete list of all of the Glory Ranks.

But what are you doing all this work for apart from pride and honor? Destiny 2 players are also trying to acquire flashy Titles to display, along with Glory itself.

That’s it. Glory Ranks used to reward weapons, but that was changed some time ago, and cosmetic alterations are the only true, tangible rewards now.


Glory Ranks are one of the many different ways you can enjoy Destiny 2, and there are also Gambit Infamy Ranks to climb up.
