Destiny 2 PC Version To Drop On October 24, New NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 And 1080 Ti Buyers Get Free Copy

Not long after the official unveiling of Bungie’s upcoming Destiny 2, hints of a delayed PC launch hit the web in full force – to the chagrin of those craving that silky-smooth 60 FPS gameplay. Now, we have some good news, and some bad news. The good is that Bungie is kind enough to tell us well in advance that there’s a delay. The bad news is that, well, there is in fact a delay.
Where the console versions of Destiny 2 are concerned, it seems like Bungie is actually ahead of schedule, given that the launch date has been moved ahead a few days, to September 6. A beta period will become available on July 21, well in advance of the game’s launch, which will hopefully translate to a smooth launch.
On the PC side, the game will launch on October 24, with a beta expected at the end of August.
To help celebrate this new information, NVIDIA has hit us with a slew of related goodies. First off, if you’re in the market for a GeForce GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti, then you’re able to get a copy of the game for free. To qualify, make absolute sure that the etailer you’re purchasing from denotes the bonus in the product listing. Further, and this is no surprise, but Destiny 2 will be “Game Ready” at launch (of the beta, more than likely).
NVIDIA has also released an exclusive trailer of 4K/60 gameplay, and all I can say is: it’s amazing to see Destiny running at 60 FPS. It’s absolutely beautiful, and so freaking overdue.
Also released was another trailer from Bungie itself:
If you’re curious about content no platform but the PlayStation 4 will receive, you might want to check this trailer out:
Platform exclusives are absolute BS to begin with, but Bungie seems to be outright trolling its fans with this one. Two of the maps look like they were ripped straight out of the original Destiny and simply given a fresh coat of paint. As with the original game’s exclusives, Sony and Bungie win, which in this case means consumers lose.
Good thing there will be a 60 FPS PC version to help take our minds away from it.
