Destiny 2 Will Run 60FPS on PC, 30FPS on Consoles

The PC version of Destiny 2 will have several graphical advantages over the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In another move demonstrating just how serious Bungie is about the PC version of Destiny 2, Bungie confirmed that Destiny 2 will run at 60fps on PC, and 30fps on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

USgamer is in Los Angeles today for Bungie's Destiny 2 premiere event. While demoing Destiny 2 on the showfloor, Bungie was able to confirm that the PC version of Destiny 2 will come with a host of graphical advantages over its console counterpart including 4K resolution, as well as 60 fps (Bungie says Destiny 2's frame-rate on PC will be uncapped, but the demos on the floor are locked in at 60 fps).

This is compared to the 30 fps on the console versions of the game, which Bungie says even the frame rate mode of the PS4 Pro won't help.

Bungie appears to be making a big play in the PC space with Destiny 2. Earlier today, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg and President of Blizzard Mike Morhaime announced that Destiny 2 will launch on Blizzard's battle.net online services, which is where Blizzard currently hosts their online games like StarCraft II and Overwatch. Prior to Destiny 2, Battle.net has hosted only games developed by Blizzard.

In addition to the graphical improvements, Destiny 2 on PC will also support traditional mouse and keyboard set ups, text chat, adujustable field of view, 21:9 monitor support, and other PC customizations.

Destiny 2 will release on September 8, so be sure to check out our Destiny 2 hub for all the latest information.
