The Destiny 2 PC beta begins August 28 with early access


And Bungie’s got the system specs

The Destiny 2 beta on consoles was nice enough, but if you’re anything like me, you’re really just waiting for that PC beta to hurry up and get here. I got a taste of the PC version back at E3 and it was so smooth that I’ve actually struggled to re-adjust to the look and feel of the game on PlayStation 4.

“All told, this was the biggest Bungie Beta ever, and we’re not even done running eager test subjects through the obstacle course,” noted the studio. “We learned a lot about how we can improve the launch of Destiny 2 – on consoles, at least. There will come a time for a public analysis of our findings. Before we dare take a victory lap or share statistics for how many shots were fired in the new version of Control, we have preparations to make for the final phase of pre-launch sparring.”

The public PC beta will run from August 29 through August 31, and early access kicks off a day earlier for folks who pre-order Destiny 2. As for the system specs (at least for the beta), look no further:

Recommended Spec

CPU Intel – Core i5-2400 AMD – Ryzen R5 1600X

GPU Nvidia – GeForce GTX 970 AMD – Radeon R9 390


Minimum Spec

CPU Intel – Core i3-3250 AMD – FX-4350

GPU Nvidia – GeForce GTX 660 2GB AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB


If you’re upgrading, here is hardware that’s available today and runs the game well:


CPU – Intel Core i5-7400 GPU – Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB


CPU – Intel Pentium G4560 GPU – Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 2GB

Bungie’s Event Machine

CPU – Intel i7-7700k GPU – Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB

I’m hopeful the beta will be extended beyond August 31. That’s not much time!
