Overall install size should drop by 30 to 40 percent as a result.
Bungie will be revamping Destiny 2 significantly when Beyond Light, its next big expansion, releases in November. Much of the past content, from entire destinations to DLC campaigns, will be going into the Destiny Content Vault. This approach was taken due to the base game becoming too bloated.
What improvements will Bungie have though? In its latest weekly blog, it noted that Destiny 2 would have to be re-downloaded. The overall install size will be reduced by 30 to 40 percent thanks to the Destiny Content Vault along with optimizations and removing unused content. Overall, the install size should be between 59 to 71 GB depending on one’s platform.
Beyond Light will be available for pre-load on November 9th, allowing players with slower connections to have it ready by launch. Destiny 2: Beyond Light is out on November 10th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, Google Stadia, PS4 and PS5. It will also be available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers (though they won’t have access to any seasonal content).
