Destiny 2 is coming to the PC, Bungie confirms

The reveal trailer is live and preorders are open.

Your pleas paid off, folks. Bungie’s “shared world” shooter Destiny 2 is coming to the PC.

The Destiny 2 worldwide reveal trailer released today didn’t spill the beans, but if you head over to the Destiny 2 preorder page you’ll find PC listed as an option alongside the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Preordering the game grants access to an early closed beta, though we recommend holding out for reviews of the game no matter how excited you are about the news. (Remember Batman: Arkham Knight?) There will also be an open beta for people who don’t preorder.

The original Destiny never appeared on PCs, disappointing many gamers and leaving the door open for The Division to try and fill the void (with mixed results). But Bungie previously announced that Destiny veterans will be able to carry their personalized characters—though not gears, levels, or weapons—over from the original game. Fingers crossed that system allows persistent accounts across platforms, so console players can migrate to the PC (and back again!) if they choose. Speaking of, it’d be wonderful if Destiny 2 offers an Xbox Play Anywhere version—but I wouldn’t get my hopes up about that. Dedicated servers would be nice, too. Just saying.

Here’s Bungie’s description of Destiny 2:

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

If you’re more of a visual type, Bungie says it will hold a “gameplay premiere live stream” on May 18. Destiny 2 launches September 8. In the meantime, here’s the reveal trailer.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
