While the console betas seemed to go on without a hitch, fans got to dive in, and try to take back the Last City starting on July 19th till July 25th. While there was surely quite a few players that attended, we are unsure just how many played in it, and if the attendance could even boast about Destiny’s 4.6 million players, which broke several records for beta users attending during a new IP beta on consoles.
If you are looking to join in on the PC beta and hope to see Destiny 2’s beta could do this on PC, players could quite easily access it through pre-ordering the game starting on August 28th while others will play in it on August 29th until August 31st. Unfortunately, this beta won’t get the four day duration that console players had gotten a chance to take part during.
For those looking to take part during the PC beta, there are a few minimum and recommended specs you’ll need to take a look at. However, be warned, these may not apply to the final game when the game launches this October for PC.
- CPU: Intel – Core i5-2400 | AMD – Ryzen R5 1600X
- GPU: Nvidia – GeForce GTX 970 | AMD – Radeon R9 390
- RAM: 8GB
- CPU: Intel – Core i3-3250 | AMD – FX-4350
- GPU: Nvidia – GeForce GTX 660 2GB | AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- RAM: 6GB
Bungie also has some listed hardware if you are looking to upgrade your rig. While you may have some of the latest and greatest hardware, Bungie wants to ensure that you’ll get the most out of Destiny 2 when it launches.
- CPU: Intel Core i5-7400
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
- CPU – Intel Pentium G4560
- GPU – Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 2GB
If you are wanting to get on par with Bungie’s event machine, you may want to get ready to crank out some serious money, but the video card will be well worth it in the long run.
Bungie’s Event Machine
- CPU – Intel i7-7700k
- GPU – Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB
While the specs of the event machine are definitely strong, most PC gamers might already meet many of the requirements, but it never hurts to definitely make sure you have some of their recommended hardware.
