PS3 and PS4 Get Destiny Preload, Xbox One To Follow Soon
Destiny is one of the highlights in terms of gaming for this year, and it is a much anticipated title. The featured release date is the 9h of September, but the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game already received a pre-load. Users that managed to pre-order the game prior, can now get the pre-load version, and get right on to gaming once the release date arrives.
The game pre-load should not be too far behind for the Xbox One either, as it was confirmed by Microsoft back in August. If you have an Xbox One and want to check the game out, the best you can do for the moment, in case you have pre-ordered the game, is check Microsoft’s network for a potential available pre-load option.
Going back to the PS3 and PS4 versions, which already received pre-loads of the game, you can get it yourself by either going to the PlayStation Store and accessing the game page for Destiny and starting the manual download from there, or by going to your console settings and enabling the auto-search for your console, meaning that it will automatically search for updates and install them. This might take a few hours, but if it finds the game, It will pre-load it on your system.
The game, as featured on its page on the PlayStation Store, will occupy about 17.4 GB of space, but this might slightly be altered by the location and language packs of the user. The game itself will come out on the 9th of September, and if you’ve pre-order the game, and then pre-loaded it, you will be able to play it almost instantly after the release date and time are reached. The game is scheduled for a 12:00 AM PT/3:00 PM ET release.
The game also comes with a very tempting offer. If you have a PS3 or Xbox 360 console, you can get the game for that console model, But if you decide to upgrade to either the Xbox One or PS4, you will get a second, free copy of Destiny, which will feature not only DLC material, but also your game progress from the previous version. The condition that users have to meet for this offer, however, is that they must buy the game before the 15h of January .
