If you’ve been keeping up to date with all the Shadowkeep-related news, then you’ll be aware that Destiny is going to be landing on the Steam Store on October 1 to coincide with the launch. It’ll be a bit of a big change for us PC-using Guardians since we’ve all gotten used to booting up the Battle.net app in order to get our Season of Opulence fix, but check out our Destiny 2 PC move guide to find out how to ensure that your hard work and loot make the jump safely to Steam just in time to take on the moon (that’s definitely haunted).
Destiny 2 PC Move Guide: Account Linking Date and Process
You’ll have plenty of time to transfer your data over from Battle.net to Steam on the Destiny 2 PC move front. This will be done through an account linking process, and Bungie will open this up to all players from August 20. How this will work is pretty simple: you’ll be given a one-time transfer of all your Destiny 2 content that you’ve purchased through Battle.net, and this will all shoot over to your chosen Steam account. This will include accounts, the game itself, all expansions you’ve purchased, any Silver, and annual pass stuff as well.
Now, it’s important to note that Battle.net isn’t going to continue to provide an alternative launcher for Destiny 2. All the PC support for the title will be provided through Steam, so if you want to continue playing the game then you’re going to have to move over to the Steam store by October 1 to enjoy Shadowkeep and everything else that the series has to offer. You will not be able to access Destiny anymore on Blizzard’s app from the launch date of Shadowkeep.
Destiny 2 PC Move Guide: Pre-Ordering Shadowkeep
You’re probably going to want to get your hands on Shadowkeep as soon as possible, and we don’t blame you! The good news is that you don’t have to have your Battle.net account linked to Steam in order to get your mitts on the upcoming Destiny 2 content. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is already available on the Stream store as a pre-order option, so you can quickly net that and link your account after you’ve secured it in your Steam library. Just don’t forget to make sure that you’ve got all your content transferred over by October 1!
Now that we’ve given you the low-down on how to get your sweet Guardian data transferred over from Battle.net to Steam, getting you and your team set up on PC in time for Shadowkeep should be a piece of cake.
