Destiny-13

I’m kind of excited for you guys who jam on PC. You’re not just getting Destiny this month: You’re getting your first proper taste of it outside of a beta format. People to meet! Places to go! Cabal to shoot in their ugly fat faces! More than that, I have a feeling that Destiny 2’s Crucible will strive on PC. It’s tight, the four on four format keeps the action manageable and it has a focus on team-based action now, a far cry from its single-player that gives a solo player multiple moments of glory.

October 24 ain’t so far away. But is your PC ready to handle Destiny 2 at its best? As a reminder, here’s what the game looks like with every setting cranked to the max:

And again, with every setting down like a clown with the downs:

If you want to hit that 4K sweet spot, you’re going to need some hefty hardware. Also around 68 gigglebytes of hard drive space to store everything on. Here’s the list of final PC settings, via Bungie:
