Destiny 2's Battlenet Availability & PC Launch

By Published May 19, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Destiny 2 will serve as Bungie and Activision’s follow up to the first Destiny, which was exclusive to Playstation and Xbox consoles. Destiny 2 was announced as coming to PC a few months back, but few details were given at that time. Since then, on Thursday May, 18th, there was a livestream event discussing some features of the new game and showing the first official gameplay footage. If you missed the livestream, don’t worry -- we have you covered, we’ve posted the link to it and all the trailers below.


The livestream seemed to focus on Destiny 2’s sense of community and cooperation, but they did highlight some of the new features. One such notable features was in-game matchmaking for major events like the Trials of Osiris, Nightfall, and raids. The first Destiny had no in-game matchmaking for these events, forcing players to rely on 3rd party apps and sites to pull together a full team.

One of the most interesting pieces of news to come out of the livestream, for PC players, was the service that Destiny will be purchased and launched through. It would appear that Bungie and Activision have partnered up with Blizzard to make Destiny 2 available exclusively through the Battlenet store and launcher. Destiny 2 on PC will have full keyboard support, an uncapped framerate, an adjustable FOV, text chat, and 21:9 support. PC graphics performance information is largely speculation at this point, but the listed PC options and features is a good sign.

These are just some of the highlights from the Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere Livestream Event, be sure to check back as we will do follow-up articles as more information is released.
