Bungie revealed system specs for Destiny 2 beta

Bungie has announced that PC Gamers will be able to experience the Destiny 2 beta for four days starting 28 Aug. If you have pre-ordered the game, you’ll get to access the beta a day earlier. Bungie will then open it up to everyone else on 29 Aug, until 31 Aug.

If you already redeemed an early access code for the console beta, you’ll have to wait until the open beta on Aug. 29 to play it on PC.

Destiny 2 beta concluded this week on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Bungie have said it was “the biggest Bungie beta ever”. The PC version of the game will be available exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net, so it is quite likely the beta will require players to have that installed as well.

Bungie also shared the PC hardware specifications for Destiny 2 beta, and the studio noted that they could change before the final game launches. If you are curious, check it out:

Recommended Spec
Intel – Core i5-2400
AMD – Ryzen R5 1600X
NVIDIA – GeForce GTX 970
AMD – Radeon R9 390
Minimum Spec
Intel – Core i3-3250
AMD – FX-4350
NVIDIA – GeForce GTX 660 2GB
AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB
If you’re upgrading, here is hardware that’s available today and runs the game well:
CPU – Intel Core i5-7400
GPU – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
CPU – Intel Pentium G4560
GPU – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 2GB
Bungie’s Event Machine
CPU – Intel i7-7700k
GPU – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB

As a reference, Bungie have shown the game running at 4K resolution at 60 frames per seconds with their Event Machines that featured an Intel Core i7-7700K processor and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. Bungie also claimed the game will support frame rates of up to 144 fps, which will be good news for competitive gamers. It is also quite plausible the game can run 4K at 144 fps but you will need monitors such as the upcoming ASUS ROG PG27UQ gaming monitor that displays 4K at 144hz.
