Destiny is another one of those games I’ll “get around to eventually” mostly because it’s only available on consoles. This presents me with two challenges, no one I know to play it with (they’re all mostly PC only), and having to play an FPS exclusively with a controller.
Neither of these things is especially an issue for me now, so I bought the game and all it’s DLC on Xbox One recently, although still haven’t played.
We’re in a position where Bungie believes a sequel will sell in droves and warrants a full PC release. I can still hope for a remaster of the original, because I would definitely prefer to play on PC, but I’m a story junkie, so I’ll happily jump between platforms if I need to.
Lets cut to the chase, the Destiny 2 PC beta was pretty impressive. Visually stunning, solid framerate, great audio, not a bug or glitch in sight for me. Co-op was flawless, no issues starting games, joining each other and so on. The only thing I didn’t get a chance to see was the “social space” made available in the small hours of the last day, because I was asleep for a change.
The general consensus among the four of us who played together? It’s good, but it’s not going to be worth £50. That’s a whole other discussion, I think we’re a bit spoiled when it comes to the cost of games on PC.
Based on my experience of playing the beta, I think it will be a game worth playing. I felt some Borderlands 2 vibes and I was sold within the first few minutes.
With the console version being locked to 30fps, even on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, I think the PC version is going to sell very well, good job it appears to work already then, even with just under 8 weeks to go.
Destiny 2 will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th. The PC version will be released a little later on October 24th.
