How to enable cross-save with your Destiny 2 data

Playing Destiny on multiple platforms? Here’s what you need to know | Image: Bungie

If you’re playing Destiny 2 on more than one platform, enabling cross-save allows you to maintain your progression regardless of which platform you’re playing on, meaning you can finally move your Guardians, with all of their loot, to a different platform and freely jump between console and PC at your leisure. Here’s how to do it, whether you want to transfer your account data between a PC and console or vice-versa.

First, there are a few important disclaimers to keep in mind before you go through with activating cross-save for your account:

  • While the free-to-play release of Destiny 2, called Destiny 2: New Light, means you don’t have to purchase multiple copies of the base game to play on different platforms, you will need to purchase duplicate copies of expansion-based content. The restricted content includes exotic weapons and armor, location-specific loot pools, raids, and dungeons.
  • What is and isn’t included as part of Destiny 2’s free content is often pretty muddled. However, not paying is still an option and allows you to engage with seasonal stories and events, as well as PvP content and world loot pools.
  • Additionally, any Silver (Destiny 2’s paid in-game currency) that you’ve previously purchased will remain locked to your original platform and won’t be transferable. So you may want to redeem your Silver before porting your saved data.
  • If you already play Destiny 2 on two platforms, activating cross-save means that the Guardians on one of those platforms will be overwritten. However, Bungie says in its FAQ that cross-save can be disabled if you want to get your old characters back. If you do disable cross-save, you’ll have to wait 90 days before you can reactivate it.

How to enable cross-save

  • Head to Bungie’s Cross-Save sign-in page. You’ll first want to sign in with the platform that you have your main Destiny 2 (with your favorite Guardians) data tied to, whether it’s PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, or Stadia.
  • After that, sign in to the account on the platform(s) to which you want to extend your account. For example, if you’re starting with a PSN and adding an Xbox Live account, you’ll sign in to your PlayStation account first, then your Xbox account.
Sign in with the account you want to serve as your main hub
  • Regardless of which platform you’re shifting from and to, Bungie does its due diligence by asking you several times if you really want to go through with enabling cross-save. It also asks you to agree to terms that outline what Bungie is going to be doing with your data and affirm that you’re giving the company the right to do so.
Enabling cross-save requires accepting a EULA from Bungie
Once you’ve authenticated your other accounts, your cross-save hub should look something like this

Shortly after agreeing, you’ll be able to access your account from the new platforms, assuming you’ve purchased Destiny 2 to play on them. When you log into your Bungie account online, you’ll easily be able to see which platforms have access to which content. chaBungie provides handy links on its site to where you can repurchase the expansions and season passes.

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
