Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 6 months you should have heard that Destiny 2 is coming to the PC. You can pre-purchase the game and learn more HERE. If you pre-purchase you get into the beta 1 day early on August 28th. The open beta for all on the PC runs from the 29th through the 31st of August. You can check system specs on blizzards main site HERE. The full release on the PC is expected on October 24th of this year.
If its anything like the console beta, which all signs point to yes, you’ll log in, choose a character and complete the initial campaign mission to get a feel for the controls. Then you’re on your own in the world to team up with friends and try the different modes or go at them solo. One key thing that changed, which should make those who live in Competitive happy:
“One of our goals for Destiny 2 has been to create two different ways to challenge yourself against other players. From this point forward, to allow for more varied experiences between the playlists, matchmaking for Quickplay and Competitive will be tuned separately. Along with some other changes to the rule sets for specific game types, these are the moods we want to cultivate in the new Crucible.”
This basically means that when you queue up for Competitive matches it will take some time to calculate your skill level vs your opponents for a more even match. In turn, if you are just looking to blow through some games Quickplay should be even quicker at finding you a match to get right into the action. While this was the most impactful change for me, they also addressed a number of glitches that were found and tweaked some weapon damage from the console beta.
With the announcement of the release on PC we’ve decided to open up an AMP division within the game. If you’re interested in joining the crew for Cooperative or Competitive game modes you can fill out the recruitment form located HERE.
