Destiny 2’s PC Beta begins late this month

While Desinty 2 has already gotten its Beta period on consoles, PC players will have to wait until the end of the month to finally try out Bungie’s newest space epic.

The PC Beta will see an early access period of August 28th; opened to anyone who previously pre-ordered the game. If you’re still on the fence and don’t want to pre-order, you can jump into the beta just a day later on August 29th. The beta will end for everybody on August 31st unless we see an extension similar to the console beta.

The PC edition of Desitny 2 will release on October 24th 2017, just over a month after the console edition launches on September 6. Check out the specs you’ll need to run Destiny 2 below, and for a taste of what you can expect in the beta, check out our gameplay footage from the PS4 edition!
