After completing the test phase on consoles, the guardians begin to prepare their arrival to the desktop systems: ‘Destiny 2’ will be the long awaited landing of the saga on PC. Of course, as it was announced, mouse and keyboard users will also have their own betas, and now we know when both will start.
From the outset, and as we could see on PS4 and Xbox, its beta will consist of a closed phase and another in which all users who want to participate. The closed beta begins on August 28, with all PC users invited to participate in the open beta as of August 29. In both cases, the test period will conclude on the 31st of the same month.
As in consoles, access to the closed beta is guaranteed to those users who made the reservation of the game, rewarding them with a day of advance access, as well as a demolishing weapon that can be released when the final version comes out. The process to request such access will be the same as that seen on consoles, although the platform in this case will be Battle.net.
On the other hand, and about the contents that will be offered during those days, the truth is that they have not yet confirmed what levels or modes will be available in the desktop betas, although it is not ruinable that we find again with the same maps, heroes and Playable options we saw on consoles.
Now, a month before the beta of ‘Destiny 2’ on PC has announced the minimum and recommended requirements for it, and you can see below.
Destiny Beta Requirements on PC
Intel Core i3-3250
Intel Core i5-2400
AMD – Ryzen R5 1600X
Nvidia – GeForce GTX 660 2GB
AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Nvidia – GeForce GTX 970
AMD – Radeon R9 390
It is important to keep in mind that these are the requirements of the Beta and could change before the release of the final version. According to Bungie, “it all depends on how things go.”
We do not know if you will be more of a sofa or desk, but this will be a great opportunity to test the experience that Bungie proposes us with mouse and keyboard one week before its launch in desktop systems: ‘Destiny 2’ will arrive on September 6 to Xbox One and PS4, and will be available on PC from October 24th.
