Console transitions are always a tricky time — do you buy the last-gen version of a game before you upgrade to a current-gen console or do you wait? Well, Bungie and Activision want to make it easy for you. For a limited time, those who decide to buy Destiny digitally for a last-gen console will have an opportunity to upgrade to the next-gen version for free. The offer applies to both the standard digital version of Destiny and the Digital Guardian Edition. All of your added content, even if you buy the expansion pass separately, will carry over to your next-gen system. Most importantly, your Guardians, along with all of your accumulated stats and progress will be carried over as well.
There are, of course, some caveats. Players will need to have purchased their last-gen digital version of Destiny before January 15, 2015 to be eligible and the upgrade program only applies to purchases made within the same console family. In other words, if you buy Destiny for the PS3, the free upgrade will only be available for the PS4.
