Destiny 2 will be released on the PC. Although players will have to wait longer for it - Destiny 2 does not start on the PC until October 24, but is already available on Xbox One and PS4 - the PC version has a variety of improvements and differences compared to its counterparts of the console. To help you get an idea of what to expect from the PC version of Bungie's long-awaited sequel, we've put together all the essential details below.

Unfortunately, if you did not try it already, the target 2 pc beta has already passed. For more information on the game, check out our Destiny 2 review. We also have tons of Destiny 2 guides, tips and tricks for those who have already started playing on the consoles or are simply looking to get an edge over how things will work on the PC.

Destiny 2 PC Release Date and Differences

The PC version is confirmed to have the release date on October 24, while versions of Xbox One and PS4 are already out, having released on September 6. (Betas on all platforms have also finished.) Same thing on PC - with one exception. Sony's exclusive time content for Destiny 2 affects not only Xbox One players, but also PC gamers. The PS4 version comes with an additional map of Strike, Crucible and some elements that will not be available on other platforms for at least one year. There is still no precise date, but after the exclusive content of PlayStation on Destiny 1 stayed for longer than expected, Bungie has explicitly stated that this Destiny 2 content will be available by the end of 2018.
