Destiny 2‘s “next-gen upgrade” is shaping up to be pretty boss. It doesn’t come until December 8 (nearly a month after the latest expansion), but it’s great on paper regardless.

Next-gen console owners can expect 4K resolution, as well as 60FPS, a field of view slider (secretly the best bonus), faster load times (also good), cross-generational play (read: inside the same console family) and free version upgrades, even on PS5. But those sneaky folks at Bungie managed to add something else into the overall rundown this week: 120hz Crucible support for both Series X and PS5 users.

In case you don’t follow Destiny 2, Crucible is the main PVP mode of Destiny, allowing folks to play through modes like capture the flag, deathmatch/team deathmatch, Call of Duty‘s kill confirmed, and more. There are some people who are just Crucible hounds and that’s all they play, but it’s also a great way to rack up some rewards, even if you’re mostly a PVE person.

120hz is a big upgrade indeed, but Bungie reminds us that not every TV will support it. If you can run it, Destiny 2 will “switch to 120hz” just for Crucible play, but with a “lowered resolution and some lowered advanced graphics settings.” “All other modes remain at 4K/60FPS, Bungie warns.

Although I’ve never really been a fan of how Bungie handles PVP overall, 120hz ensures that I’ll be messing around with it here and there.
