Destiny 2 PC Release Date and Time, System Requirements, Price, and All You Need to Know

A month and a half after its arrival on consoles, Bungie’s Destiny 2 is getting a PC release on Tuesday, October 24. It’s been a long wait, but PC gamers can take solace in the fact that at least it’s available, given the lack of a PC release for 2014’s Destiny.

As before, the game puts you in the role of a Guardian, who is tasked with protecting the last safe city on planet Earth from alien races. We felt the game improved in spades upon the original, even as it had its own shortcomings. If you’re wondering what to expect from Destiny 2 on PC, here’s what you need to know.

Destiny 2 PC release date, unlock time

Unlike the staggered release format on PS4 and Xbox One, Bungie is opting for a unified unlock time on PC, at 10am PDT (10:30pm IST) on October 24. If you’re wondering how that relates to where you live, use this handy link to convert the time. Pre-loading for the game began earlier this week, so if you haven’t done that already, you can do so now.

Destiny 2 PC is exclusive to Battle.net
While most PC games are available via Steam, Bungie’s latest is exclusive to Blizzard Battle.net. It’s the same platform used for Blizzard’s own games, such as World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Starcraft, so you’re in capable hands when it comes to server speed and maintenance. Destiny 2 has the honour of being the first non-Blizzard game – it’s being published by Activision, a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard – to be available via Battle.net. This also means that physical copies of Destiny 2 PC will only come with a code that will have to be redeemed inside the Battle.net desktop app.
