Destiny 2 is among the most ambitious Blizzard- Activision projects. PC players seem impatient to put hands on the game. Activision reassured that the PC version will be worth the wait. It will support higher resolutions and framerates. In addition, it will operate off the Battle.net platform.
At the time of writing, a PC beta version is unavailable for pre-order. Destiny 2 BETA versions for consoles are available, though. Players can choose between Digital Deluxe Edition, Digital Standard Edition, Game + Expansion Pass, Expansion Pass, Limited Edition, Collector’s Edition.
