Adjust Comment Print

As such, Bungie has a couple goals for the PC beta including testing how Destiny 2 performs on a new platform and make sure first-time PC players get a good feel for the series.

The PC beta for Destiny 2 will start later this month and a lot of players are very excited for it. Bungie recently revealed what kind of system requirements the beta shall have and they are surprisingly in check with low-to-mid end systems.

Those who wish to capture footage of Destiny 2 while playing in Exclusive Fullscreen can use a dedicated streaming PC, as well as capture hardware like Elgato and AVerMedia. The Farm, the new social space for Destiny 2, may or may not be available in the PC beta as it was only briefly showcased in the console beta.

OBS and XSplit Window Capture mode is supported.

Select features that use overlays are not compatible with the PC version Destiny 2, including frame rate and stat overlays from programs like EVGA Precision XOC, MSi Afterburner and Fraps.

This is explicitly because Bungie doesn't want third-party interference in the games.

OBS and XSplit Window Capture mode is supported.

In a recent blog post, the developer explained how they would regulate third-party applications. This includes borderless fullscreen, so even though these rules are inconvenient, the fact that you still run the game in borderless fullscreen and stream it is nice.

Some overlays for chat and hardware monitoring will also be blocked from functioning. Additionally, features like "Who's Talking" and other voice communication notifications found in programs like Discord and Mumble aren't supported.

Bungie will release "Destiny 2" on PC on Tuesday, Oct. 24. The game resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client.
