Destiny 2 and other games can manage to run games at 120fps on both consoles. But Bungie’s game makes it happen on 1440p dynamic resolution.
Destiny 2 is well optimized for next-gen consoles
the next-generation version of Destiny 2 is a generation apart if we compare it to the PS4 and Xbox One. There is a big performance difference between both of the generations. Not only performance so to say. There are also improvements such as resolution, FOV, and other visual improvements. This eventually means that there is a huge leap between the two console generations.
According to VGTech, Destiny 2 also has a 120 FPS mode that renders at dynamic 1440p. But on the Xbox Side, this is only available for the Xbox Series X version of the console. So, sadly, Xbox Series S will not be able to obtain such a huge performance. As both of the consoles have some performance differences. Long story short: Xbox Series S is not as strong as Series X.
Again, according to VGTech, Destiny 2 renders at a dynamic 1440p resolution on PS5 and Xbox Series X. This resolution drops on only one axis with the lowest limit found at 1535×1440. For the most part, the game manages to remain at the targeted 1440p resolution. However, we can see some drops. But these are not so important.
Of course, in order to gain the 120fps, the game has to downgrade some visuals. According to VGTech, other sacrifices include reduced draw distance, removed motion blur, removed depth of field, shorter LOD transition distance, and removed ambient occlusion. All of these removals are necessary in order to achieve a stable 120fps experience.
Destiny 2 is available now for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC. The game recently received a major expansion called Beyond Light that was also available on Xbox Game Pass. You can watch the video of VGTech just below:
