The Destiny 2 PC Beta Opens Up in Late August, Here are the PC Specs You'll Need

PC Guardians get ready for the Destiny 2 beta

The Destiny 2 beta wrapped up on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the PC beta is still incoming. Today, Bungie announced that PC players will be able to play the beta later this month. Early Access players can start playing on August 28 while the beta opens for everyone the next day on August 29. The beta will remain open until August 31.

Bungie's open beta for the PC will most likely include the same content released on consoles earlier this month. Players will be able to play the opening story mission, and then unlock two multiplayer maps and the Inverted Spire strike. No word yet on when Bungie will open up the new social hub, the farm, however. Although, maybe they'll try and prevent players from overstaying their welcome like on the console beta.

Bungie also released the recommended and minimum specs for the beta which you can see listed below:

Recommended Spec

CPU

  • Intel - Core i5-2400
  • AMD - Ryzen R5 1600X

GPU

  • Nvidia - GeForce GTX 970
  • AMD - Radeon R9 390
  • RAM
  • 8GB

Minimum Spec

  • AMD - FX-4350

  • 6GB

Bungie warns that these specs are for the beta and may change for the final release of the game.

So there you go! PC Players already have to wait a little longer for the full game to release on consoles, but at least you can start planning now for the PC beta now. And remember, the PC version of Destiny 2 hits stores on October 24.
