Destiny 2’s PS4 and Xbox One community had their chance to experience the game on July 19 through July 21. Now, it’s PC time. As announced by Bungie, Destiny 2 PC Beta is coming on August 28 and will be available until August 31.
PC players will have their chance for the first time ever to “tackle” Destiny 2. As you might know, Blizzard and Bungie has joined their forces together and introduced the game to the PC community. So, in order to join the Destiny 2 Beta, the players need to have Blizzard’s Battle.net app.
The PC players will have a chance to try all play modes, the first mission in Destiny 2′ campaign, the Crucible and the Countdown. They can also try the Strike and see how it’s working, including the new matchmaking system. During the Open Beta, the PC players can try the new Subclasses and the new fighting style. They’ll definitely need to learn these fighting styles in order to defeat Dominus Ghaul, the sworn enemy of the Guardians.
The previous month, to be more precise, on June 13, Nvidia posted 70 seconds of gameplay footage from Destiny’2 “Homecoming” mission.
The mission is occurring after a Cabal invasion of The Last City on Earth, with the player infiltrating a Cabal ship and fighting enemies from the Cabal Red Legion. Its PC version will support many advanced visual features, which include 4K resolution support and an uncapped frame rate. This means that people with a graphic car that is strong enough will be able to run the game at 60 frames per second in 4K, or at a higher frame rate like 144 fps.
Nvidia will be partnering with Destiny 2 publisher Activision for a special offer. Anyone who will buy a GeForce GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti, or a computer or laptop that has one, will receive a free copy of Destiny 2. The buyers will also get early access to the PC Beta version.
Bungie has also announced the minimum and recommended spec for the Beta, but they’ve also stated that they could change before the Destiny 2’s official release on October 24.
