Destiny 2 PC beta: here's what's changing from the console version

Destiny 2 PC beta: here's what's changing from the console version

The official release of the PC version is set to take place on the 24th of October.

But just because the Destiny 2 console beta was a technical test doesn't mean that Bungie isn't changing content and balancing combat as well.

Competitive continues to be based on the Skill level of the players involved, which Bungie warns may lead to extended wait times to match you up with suitable opponents. Bungie has already explained that Destiny 2 PC version will not be a console port and will feel like a PC game and now the devs have revealed that players will be able to adjust the upper limit of FPS on PC.

"One of our goals for Destiny 2 has been to create two different ways to challenge yourself against other players".

From this point forward, to allow for more varied experiences between the playlists, matchmaking for Quickplay and Competitive will be tuned separately.

In Competitive, on the other hand, matchmaking might take longer.

"As a part of our security efforts, we have designed Destiny 2 for PC to resist all attempts from external applications to insert code into the game client", Bungie said.

FIXED: Infinite Super Glitch Infinite Supers are all well and good until someone loses an eye.

This bug was awesome...

Supers and grenades were also mentioned, and whilst they recharge faster than the beta, it seems we'll be encouraged to recharge them more quickly through aggressive play: an example given was a Warlock exotic chest that lets you hover in the air (sounding a little like Empyrrean Bellicose) where kills whilst hovering will quickly recharge your grenade.

The time it takes to charge up Super Abilities has been reduced, as Bungie admitted that was an issue in the console beta.

FIXED: Warlocks now have the same Melee Range as all other classes With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us.

If you are eager to know more about the upcoming sci-fi shooter Destiny 2, the latest issue of EDGE magazine has you covered. The changes are products of the players' feedback from the recently concluded console beta. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

"The #PC Beta of "#Destiny 2" is launching in the later part of August.

This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks. The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more heavy ammo in PvE than what was found before. Power ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.

Destiny 2 PC open beta is expected to become available on the 29th of August, while users who have pre-ordered the game will enjoy a one-day early access giving them a headstart.
