Also Coming to PC
PC players, don’t fret. It was also confirmed that Destiny 2 is also coming to the PC on October 24. However, PC players will have to wait more than a month after its console release to get their hands on the game. The beta period for PC is scheduled for August. The PC version will be exclusive to Blizzard’s Battlenet. The game will not be released on Steam, unfortunately.
PS4 players will receive exclusive game content.The biggest exclusive is the mission Lake of Shadows Strike. Other exclusive content include the Borealis Exotic Sniper Rifle, exclusive armor, the multiplayer map Retribution, and the Apex ship. These content will remain PS4-exclusive until Fall 2018.
Framerate Lock at 30FPS
Destiny 2 will have some very demanding specs that the PS4 Pro, the Xbox One, and even the Xbox One X will be unable to run the game at 60FPS. For the console release, the framerate will be locked at 30 FPS.
More FPS Means More Love for PC Players?
PC players can run the game at 4K resolutions and an uncapped framerate. If your machine is powerful enough, you can even run the game at 60 or even 144 FPS.
Nvidia is even partnering with Activision to give away free copies of Destiny 2 to people who buy a GTX1080, a 1080 Ti, or system or laptop equipped with the GPU.
This game will surely give Bioware and Anthem a run for its money.
