Yup you read that right: Activision and Bungie have announced, for a limited time, when fans buy Destiny digitally on last-gen gaming consoles, they will gain access to it’s next-gen counterpart for FREE. This news comes after Activision had announced that Desitny had become the more pre-ordered new IPO of all-time.
So here’s how it’s works: between NOW until January 15th, 2015 when you purchase Bungie’s Destiny via the online games marketplace on your last-gen console of choice, you will also be allowed to download the game via that hardware company’s respective next-gen counterpart, for free. For example: Xbox 360 owners who download Destiny on Xbox Live will be allowed to redeem for a digital copy of the Xbox One version and PS3 owners towards the digital PlayStation 4 edition via PlayStation Network.
But that’s not all: Not only will you receive a free copy of the game on your next-gen platform, but all your character stats, weapons, skil sets… everything will also transfer over towards your next-gen copy of Destiny. Expansion packs and season passes purchased on last-gen will transfer as well, and the game’s license will continue to be valid on both of your Xbox or PlayStation consoles – meaning if you have friends that don’t have a next-gen console, you can continue to rank-up your character along with them on the last-gen consoles and hop back-and-forth to play between your older and newer gaming systems.
