After the successful completion of the beta test for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Bungie is now targeting the PC. On this occasion, system requirements were also mentioned. The game is not greedy for the latest hardware.
Beta start on the PC
Pre-buyers are permitted to play on the PC from the 28th of August, one day later the test phase starts without restriction. Can be played until August 31st.
Two cores and four threads, six gigabytes of RAM, and an old mid-class graphics card from the beat of a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 range, according to Bungie, to play the Beta of Destiny 2. However, it is recommended to use more powerful hardware: An old Intel quad core processor of the proven Sandy Bridge generation or a current Ryzen 5 1600X should be paired with 8 gigabytes of RAM and a current mid-class GPU. The performance level is plugged into the GeForce GTX 970 and Radeon R9 390.
Recommendations for uprising
Bungie has also published a second set of recommendations. These are intended for users who want to upgrade their computer before the game is released and call up currently available hardware. At least, this list includes an Intel Pentium G4560 (test), which ComputerBase has designated as a “Core i3 killer”, as well as a GeForce GTX 1050 with two gigabytes of video memory. We recommend a Core i5-7400 with a GeForce GTX 1060 in the 6 GB version.
AMD products does not list Bungie in this list, the brand new Ryzen 3 (test) and the already longer available Ryzen 5 (test) are however a real alternative to Intel. From a performance perspective, the Radeon RX 460, RX 470 and RX 480 or RX 580 are the right pendants when choosing a GPU. The graphics cards from AMD are however more in demand because of the Mining hypes. The result is higher price increases than with Nvidia models.
For game consoles, Destiny 2 will be released on September 6th, on the PC, the shooter will be offered on the market in October, as well as via the Blizzard Launcher.
