Destiny 2 PC Beta Dates and Minimum Specs Revealed



Share.

Your 5 year-old GPU still has some life.

If you’re eligible for Destiny 2 early access for the PC beta, you can start playing August 28, with the open beta beginning August 29.

On top of the beta dates, Bungie also revealed the minimum PC requirements to join in on the beta, and if you have an older gaming PC, you won’t be left out.

Minimum specs call for either an Intel Core i3-3250 or AMD FX-4350 CPU, with either a GeForce GTX 660 2GB or Radeon HD 7850 2GB for graphics. Minimum RAM calls for just 6GB. That’s not bad at all.

Recommended specs aren’t too far out of the realm of possibility for most PC gamers, with Bungie suggesting Intel Core i5-2400 or an AMD Ryzen R5 1600X and either GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390 graphics card, along with 8GB RAM.

Bungie’s own machine used during events runs an Intel i7-7700K CPU and a collosal Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB, but that’s a tad on the pricier side.

Keep in mind these are the specs to run the beta, and aren’t necessarily the specs called for in the final game. If you’re dying to play Destiny 2 on PC you might need to retire your dusty, trusty old graphics card from 2012.

The Destiny 2 console open beta was extended so Bungie could perform “additional service testing.” The PC beta is scheduled to conclude August 31.
