If you played the PC beta, you probably already have an idea how Destiny 2 runs on your machine. Still, if you’re looking for the last word, the Destiny 2 PC specs have been officially revealed, along with a by-the-hour timeline of when the game goes live for the platform.
Here’s the hardware you’ll need to have things cooking at both minimum and recommended spec:
|CPU: Intel||Intel Core i3-3250 3.5 GHz or
Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz
|Intel Core i5-2400 3.4 GHz or
i5 7400 3.5 GHz
|CPU: AMD||AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz||AMD Ryzen R5 1600X 3.6 GHz|
|GPU: NVidia||Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB or
GTX 1050 2GB
|Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB or
GTX 1060 6GB
|GPU: AMD||AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB||AMD R9 390 8GB|
|Operating System:||Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit (Recommended)|
|Hard Drive Space:||68GB available hard drive space|
As for launch times, the game will officially go live at 10am PDT on Tuesday, October 24th worldwide. If you’re not the sort of person who’s very good with figuring out time zones, the Bungie website has a handy graphic that will give you a better understanding of when you can start playing the game.
As for Destiny 2 currently, the weekly update also mentions that the Prestige version of the Leviathan Raid will release as scheduled with a discovered exploit included. Why launch broken content? Because the fix, apparently, would do more harm than good at the moment. “The last thing we want to do is fix an exploit some players are using, only to break other parts of the game for everyone. Because of this, we are pushing the fix off to a later date,” explains the post.
Despite the fact that the Prestige will arrive with an exploit, those Fireteams found using it could have their run to World First disqualified.
We’re sure that PC players are all ready to take a run at Destiny 2 and have their machines more than prepared for the game’s launch. Still, it’s good to know at least how much hard drive space will be required if nothing else.
