While Bungie confirmed that the PC version of Destiny 2 will not release simultaneously with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, it will have other benefits. The PC version comes with various graphics options and an uncapped frame rate, but it won't be available on Steam. But, given that Destiny 2 on PC is a brand new endeavor for Bungie, there are a few comforts that they aren't able to provide - namely, dedicated servers.
The PC version of Destiny 2 promises 4K support and custom key mapping for gamers.
From the recent presentation for Destiny 2 on PC, fans can expect the first-shooter video game to reflect a tonne of similarities to the first instalment.
The PVP action in Destiny is home to some of the most intense battles across the cosmos, and Destiny 2 takes it to a whole new level as players engage in new 4v4 battles in The Crucible.
During a May livestream event, Bungie showcased the first ever Destiny 2 gameplay, including an extended look at the story mission, "Homecoming".
"I think it's pretty unrealistic, given we're an online-only game, right?" he said. But sadly, according to IGN, game director Luke Smith has announced at the gameplay reveal event in Los Angeles that the PC release will not happen until after the console one on September 8th, 2017.
Another big announcement from the event was the introduction of Clans.
Where the original Destiny divided weapons into primary, secondary, and heavy groupings, Destiny 2 will use kinetic, energy, and power in its revamped weapons system.
Following the campaign footage, the stream details a number of the social and co-operative activities that will be available in Destiny 2, along with teasing some of the new locations you'll be exploring. In conjunction with the launch of the title, there will also arrive a new patch that will make some changes required by the players. Bungie's plan is to iterate on, rather than innovate with the sequel.
