Good news for fans with newer displays
Destiny 2 was already getting exclusive content on the PlayStation 4, but a recent trailer for the game confirmed that Destiny 2 will also be gaining HDR, or high dynamic range, support on the PlayStation 4 “soon” after launch.
HDR is a feature the increases the number of colors, as well as their intensity, that can be shown on new televisions. It’s a hard effect to describe in words, but imagine a more vibrant image that seems as if it “pops” off the display. Its inclusion in newer televisions is a big part of why 4K displays can look so good when running newer hardware and games with HDR support.
Destiny 2 on the PC already offers HDR and 4K resolution options on the PC beta if you have the hardware needed to run and display the game at those settings, but that version of the game will be released on Oct. 24, while the console versions will be out on Sept. 6.
We reached out to Bungie to ask for confirmation on whether HDR support is coming to the Xbox One S or Xbox One X version of Destiny 2 and have yet to hear back.
