A new Destiny 2 PC beta 4K@60FPS gameplay video was shared today by NVIDIA, which has been working closely with Bungie and Activision to bring the game to the PC platform for the first time.
The Destiny 2 PC beta will be available on August 28th if you pre-order the game and on August 29th for everyone (until August 31st). NVIDIA also shared the official Destiny 2 PC beta system requirements and confirmed that they'll have an official Game Ready driver ready before August 28th. As a reminder, the full release will happen on September 6th for consoles and October 24th for PC.
Activision, Bungie and NVIDIA have been working closely together to ensure gamers get the best possible visuals and performance with Destiny 2 on PC. The development team leveraged NVIDIA's developer resources and advanced technologies to bolster that experience, too, with Bungie CEO Pete Parsons explaining that “the GeForce PC platform offers technologies and performance that allow gamers to see the Destiny universe the way we envisioned it for PC players.”
In order to get the optimal performance during Destiny 2's PC beta, you will need a GeForce GTX 660 (or GeForce GTX 1050 if you're upgrading) to meet the minimum system requirements. However, if you want the level of visual fidelity showcased in the 4K trailer above, you'll want to arm your rig with our obscenely fast GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
Check out the full minimum and recommended PC system requirements below.
