Bungie reveals Destiny 2's PC features

 
Bungie has revealed a selection of Destiny 2's PC oriented features, as well as the specifications of the systems used to play the game at 4K 60FPS at yesterday's live event. 
 
It has now been confirmed that Destiny's PC version will likely be delayed when compared to its console counterparts, which will be releasing on September 8th. At this time the PC release date for Destiny has not been confirmed, though this information is set to be confirmed "soon".  
 
Destiny 2 will be sold on Blizzard's Battle.net client, with Destiny 2 acting as the first Activision game to be released on Blizzard's platform. The reasoning behind this move is obvious, as Steam's standard fee for game sales is 30%, giving Activision/Blizzard a huge financial incentive to use their own online distribution platform on PC. 

Destiny 2 will support 4K resolutions and Ultra-wide 21:9 displays at launch as well as support mouse/keyboard control methods and an unlocked framerate. Bungie has also confirmed that the game will feature an FOV slider, making this shooter suitable for PC users who suffer from simulation sickness.

  

Bungie reveals Destiny 2's PC features  

At yesterday's gameplay reveal event, Destiny 2 was shown on PC running at 4K 60FPS, showcasing how well the game runs on PC at this stage of development. It has also been revealed that this was achieved on a system with an Intel i7 7700K, a GTX 1080 Ti and 16GB of memory on a Windows 10 based system. 

Those at the event stated that the game played much smoother on PC due to its higher framerate and looked much sharper than its console counterparts, though these system requirements for 4K 60FPS hopefully means that 1080p 60 should be easily achievable by modern systems. 

Destiny 2 will also feature more solo and multi-player content than the original game, with more quests and story driven content as well as new social features that will make finding new groups for raiding and other content easier.

This now makes the choice to use Battlenet more reasonable but I still don't want to have to install yet another client on my, pc just to be able to play a game since I already have Steam, Origin and Uplay.Quote

Yeah, but a lot of PC gamers already use Battle.net, be it for WOW, Overwatch, Hearthstone or Starcraft. It isn't like Battle.net is something that is new.

I would love to see these games on Steam, but at the same time letting steam have this much power is not healthy for PC gaming as a whole.Quote

Understandable but this will be the only game I have on Battlenet, since my copy of Starcraft II was removed from my Battlenet account and they refused to fix it.

It was there one day and gone the next and when I contacted them, they said I never had the game on there, after 2 months I gave up fighting them.Quote

Well the other incentive they wanted to bring in is the abillity to use the new blizzard account currency for in-game purchases. Gone are the days of paying in euros, you can obtain tokens now and use them across all blizzard games. This will be opened up to Destiny 2 im sure. Especially when the ingame cosmetics in Destiny are the same kind as WoW.Quote

Fair, sucks that you have had a bad experience with them in the past.

This makes me wonder if Activision wants to release more of their games on Battle.net moving forward. Could COD WWII be exclusive to Battle.net?Quote
