Destiny 2 PC Minimum Specs

Destiny 2 just wrapped up its console betas on Monday. PC gamers across the world are waiting in anticipation for their own beta to release. According to the latest TWAB, the Destiny 2 PC Beta is set for launch on the 28th of August, 2017.

What are the Destiny 2 PC Minimum Specs?

According to Bungie, the minimum specifications for the Destiny 2 Beta are as follows:

Hardware Minimum spec Recommended spec
CPU Intel Core i3-3250 or AMD FX-4350 Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390

What Was Bungie Using?

At the Destiny 2 Reveal (DRE to Bungie insiders) the team used high-spec machines to run the game. While the Destiny 2 PC minimum specs do state that a low-end (relatively) GPU should suffice, builders should be warned: if you want to see a smooth, beautiful 1080p 60fps Destiny 2, this will not work for you.

Bungie’s own machines ran a high-end Intel Core i7-7700k processor paired with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB GPU. Their PCs all ran the game at a smooth 60fps with no problems whatsoever. Keep this in mind when upgrading your current machine.

How to Access the Destiny 2 PC Beta

First off, know your dates. The PC Beta for Destiny 2 will release on August 28, 2017. This is the Early Access date, meaning it is a closed Beta for that day. If you preordered Destiny 2 on PC using the launcher, you’ll be able to access the Beta immediately at 10:00am PDT.

  1. Go to and create or sign in to your account using your Blizzard account login details.
  2. If you preordered the PC version of D2, visit the Redeem page to enter your Beta code.
    • You should have received this code via email from your retailer if you preordered the physical copy of the game.
    • If you preordered Destiny 2 digitally on your PC, you should receive a code via email to your Blizzard account email address.
  3. Wait.

The beta hasn’t been launched yet. It hasn’t been set up for preloading either. Once you’ve redeemed your code, you will have to be patient for the next step in the process.

Visit the Beta Information page for more information about the PC beta. Stay tuned for an update regarding times and the client download.
