Destiny is officially leaving Battle.net after five years and it's launching on Steam as a free-to-play title. Today, Bungie have shared a couple of details about the migration and what exactly can players expect from the process.

Earlier this year, Bungie have officially announced that their looter shooter Destiny 2 will be leaving Battle.net, which was the homeplace for the franchise for more than five years. Not surprising given that Bungie split from Activision at the start of 2019. Once Destiny 2 arrives to Steam, it will also have a free-to-play version.

In the latest blog post on Bungie's website, the developer detailed the change and what exactly can players expect once Destiny 2 arrives to Steam. They revealed what type of content you will be able to migrate from Battle.net and if you can still pre-purchase DLCs on Blizzard's launcher.

The PC migration will include a one-time transfer of all ownership rights that a player already owns. This includes expansions, Silver, Account, Seasons and everything that you purchased since the game's release.

Furthermore, if you already pre-ordered the upcoming expansion - Destiny 2: Shadowkeep - on Battle.net, you will be able to migrate it to your Steam account at later date.

Also, you won't have to create a brand new Steam account specifically for Destiny 2 - your current account will do just fine. Bungie said that more details about Destiny 2 migration to Steam will be revealed as we get closer to the release date so we'll keep an eye on Bungie's announcements and let you know once they share something new.

In other Destiny 2 news, AMD recently confirmed that they managed to fix the issue which prevented Ryzen 3000 users from playing the game. Some players reported strange bug after upgrading to a new CPU from AMD's new lineup. A new BIOS version should be out in the upcoming days so make sure you download and install it if you have Ryzen 3000 CPU.
