Destiny 2 Beyond Light: Prepare for this download and the next with these awesome hard drives!

Make way for this epic expansion!

The Destiny 2 Beyond Light expansion is coming in fast, and with it, a quite large file size too. 

It's to be expected, however, as many of the upcoming expansive games are tipping the scales as of late, but it does mean that you may have to make some room for the download.

External storage solutions are a great way to manage your gaming library and prepare for future releases without needing to delete anything unnecessarily. 

And thanks to the wave of early Black Friday deals coming in ahead of the day itself, we're seeing some brilliant deals on these handy devices.

Take a look below for our top picks!

Destiny 2 Beyond Light File Sizes

  • For Xbox Series X/S - 65.7 GB,
  • PS5 - 70.78 GB
  • PS4 - 65.7 GB
  • Xbox One - 65.7 GB
  • PC - 69.7 GB

HDDs and SSDs with Next-Gen 

When it comes to which SSDs will work with next-gen, the waters are arguably a little muddied. The Xbox Series X and S work with an official Seagate Storage Expansion Card (SSD) which you can pre-order here.

For PS5, it appears that at launch, they will not have a similar storage solution to accompany their powerful, custom internal SSD.

If you're planning on using a hard drive to play backwards compatible games on next-gen, you can store the games on the external hard drive, and they will then need to be transferred over to the internal SSD of the next-gen console to be played.
