PSA: Account linking for Destiny 2 PC players is now live

    
9

As we’ve covered numerous times over the past few weeks, PC players of Destiny 2 are going to need to move over to Steam to access the game, but that doesn’t mean you’ll need to purchase the old game and content on the platform. After a fairly lengthy wait, the ability to migrate your Guardian and their stuff from Blizzard’s launcher to Steam is now online.

The process of doing this is a reasonably straightforward affair, or at least is guided along to help folks out. You can either start by signing in with your Steam account or with your Battle.net account and then follow all of the steps and popup windows that arrive to your screen. It’s a bit of a faff, but it generally works; in my personal opinion, it’s probably best to start by logging in with your Battle.net account.

As the FAQ states, this is the only way you’ll get to play the looter shooter on PC come October 1st, so if that’s your platform for all things Destiny, then now is the time to get started. If you happen to run into some trouble, there are forums to help you out.

Amazingly easy. I only snagged it free a while ago, never installed/played it.

Guess I better prepare. I got D2 for free on Battle.net, never played or even installed it, so…done! Maybe I’ll try it this time.

Thanks for the heads up, done and done. Now to wait patiently for it to launch on Steam and hope that I can rope a few friends into playing, at least if the game is still enjoyable for me. Hope they’ll have some kind of sale on Forsaken around that time so I can get some new content as I’ve played through everything currently released before it.

Can’t wait to see all the payment layers they’ve prepared for F2P mode. I wonder if they’ll be able to beat SWTOR and TESO?

Well they are trying to paint a “good boy” picture. Everything that was bad in the past was not their fault. It was Activision all along, they are the good guys. So I am guessing they will throw some dust in people’s faces in the beginning.

Still, as an independent studio they’ll need money. A lot. So most likely they’ll lower prices but stick payment options everywhere. Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as in SWTOR where *you had to pay $15 to transfer your bank account into F2P mode* – after you’ve purchased the game for $50 (and probably paid for couple month of subscription).
