A fresh Destiny 2 leak just appeared on Reddit, courtesy of Spanish fan site UniversoDestiny who got it from a Spanish retailer. There's a lot of stuff in this Destiny 2 leak, including a brief description of the game and the content of the Collector's and Limited Edition.
Finally, the box art below definitively confirms that Destiny 2 will launch on PC, too.
From the creators of Destiny, a highly acclaimed game, the extremely anticipated sequel is coming up. A first person action shooter that places you in an epic adventure through the Solar System.
The last city on Earth has fallen before an overwhelming invasive force under Ghaul, the towering commander of the Red Legion. Guardians are running out of power, and the few survivors have left. You will venture in mysterious, uncharted worlds from the Solar System to discover devastating weapons and combat abilities. In order to defeat the Red Legion and face Ghaul, you will need to gather the surviving heroes from the City and fight back together to claim back home.
The Collector's Edition will include:
