IMPORTANT INFO from Bungie.net on Sept 26, 2019
FOLLOW UP: DELAY IN FORSAKEN LICENSE TRANSFERS FOR MIGRATING PC PLAYERS
Last week, Bungie discussed the likely delay of Forsaken license transfers for migrated PC players on Steam. With the announcement of the upcoming 24-hour maintenance, Bungie hopes to mitigate any possible delay in Forsaken license transfers following the launch of Shadowkeep on October 1. If any such delays occur, they’ll be sure to sound off from the support links provided above.
PC MIGRATION AND NEW CHARACTERS ON STEAM
Following the launch of Shadowkeep and Destiny 2 Update 2.6.0 on October 1, players who link their Steam account to their Bungie.net profile will be able to manually trigger PC Migration.
Players should be aware, however, that any new characters created on Steam before performing PC migration will be overwritten when players migrate from Battle.net. This will result in the potential loss of new characters and gear, as well as Silver, Eververse items, and Season Passes—if purchased on these new characters before performing PC migration.
To make things as simple as possible, here’s the recommended order of operations for players who perform PC migration to Steam after Shadowkeep launches on October 1:
1. Link your Steam account to your existing Bungie.net profile and initiate PC Migration. Please ensure you are linking to the same Bungie.net profile associated with your Battle.net account. Once manually triggered, PC Migration cannot be undone.
2. If desired, enable Cross Save so your preferred characters are available when you log in to Destiny 2 on Steam. PC Migration will still transfer your Battle.net characters to Steam, even if another set of characters is selected for Cross Save. This also determines which characters receive any Silver or Season Passes purchased on Steam before logging in.
4. Log in to Destiny 2.
5. Your Battle.net characters, licenses, and Silver will already be migrated to your Steam account, however your Cross Saved characters will appear if Cross Save is enabled.
IMPORTANT: Since purchased Silver and Season Passes are applied to the first character set that players log in with after purchase, Bungie strongly recommends that players enable Cross Save before logging in to Destiny 2 on Steam. This will ensure that your desired characters are receiving your Silver and Season Passes on the Steam platform. Cross Save-enabled characters will be able to bring their Season Passes with them to any platform after they have been applied.
REMINDER: DESTINY 2 AND SILVER PURCHASES ON BATTLE.NET
Destiny 2 game content and Destiny 2 Silver can no longer be purchased from the Battle.net Shop. Existing PC players can continue to play on Battle.net until Destiny 2 undergoes maintenance for Steam launch. Players should also be aware that in order for recent Silver purchases to successfully transfer to Steam, players MUST log in to Destiny 2 on Battle.net before 10 AM PDT (1700 UTC) on September 30, 2019 to claim their purchased Silver.
REMINDER: BATTLE.NET CODE REDEMPTION FOR DESTINY 2
As another reminder, players should be aware that any Battle.net code they possess for Destiny 2 content MUST be redeemed on their Battle.net account before they perform PC Migration. Players who have already prepared for PC Migration have until the start of Destiny 2 maintenance on September 30 to redeem any unused Battle.net codes—to have that license transfer to their Steam account.
Players who migrate to Steam after our October 1 maintenance must also ensure that their Battle.net code is redeemed before they link their Steam account. Once a Steam account is linked, their Guardians, Silver, and game licenses will be migrated from Battle.net to Steam. This is a one-time process that cannot be repeated for new licenses. For information on Battle.net code redemption, players should visit Blizzard’s How to Claim a Code knowledge base article.
It’s worth noting that all content previously included in the base Destiny 2 game, Curse of Osiris, or Warmind, will be available to all players for free through the launch of Destiny 2: New Light on October 1.
STEAM LIMITED USER ACCOUNTS
In short, any player whose account has spent less than $5.00 USD on the Steam Store will have limited access to community and social features that are commonly used for spamming, phishing, and other abuse. This will also apply to any Destiny 2 player new to the Steam platform who migrates from Battle.net. For more information, please see Valve’s Limited User Accounts support article.
