Fans who are waiting for “Destiny 2” can now start to migrate their created Groups from the first “Destiny” game.

Game developer Bungie announced in a post on their website that players can now convert their existing Groups into “Destiny 2” Clans. “Starting today, we’ve begun to update Bungie.net with this new functionality,” read Bungie’s post. “Founding members of Clans are being called to action. It’s time to rally your troops and begin planning the migration to a new title,” it went on to say.

Moreover, they also said that the Groups that are converted into Clans will get to enjoy a number of features. “Every member of a Destiny 2 Clan will earn rewards based on the activities of their teammates,” Bungie explained. Furthermore, Clans will be able to add reinforcement to their Fireteams through the Guided Games. They can also use this to complete endgame activities.

In addition, players will also get access to a wide range of Clan management tools from the “Destiny” mobile app and Bungie.net.

To help the players in the whole transition process, Bungie also put up full documentation, which players should go through before proceeding with the migration. The Clan Management functionality will be live until Aug. 23. The said date is the deadline for choosing between a Group and a Clan.

Gamespot reported that the migration is not mandatory. Players can have their communities remain as Groups. The downside, however, is that they will not have access to the game’s Clan features. Clans will have a maximum of 100 members, while multiple clans cannot build alliances.

Earlier this month, SuperData Research projected the PC version of “Destiny 2” to hit the 3 million mark in units sold. The prediction covers the first three months after the game’s release this September. The firm also said the numbers could rise to somewhere between 4 to 5 million, once console sales are factored in.

“Destiny 2” will come out on Sept. 6 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version will follow suit on Oct. 24.
