Activision and Bungie has revealed the recommended and required PC specifications for Destiny 2 as well as announcing when PC players can dive into the beta.

Following the closed and open beta for Destiny 2 on PS4 and Xbox One, Bungie has revealed the specs for the game which will be able to answer the question of whether the game is able to run on your PC or not.

In a Weekly Update, Bungie announced that PC players will be able to try their hand at Destiny 2 on August 28, provided they’ve pre-ordered the game. It’ll then be open to all on August 29, and will end for everyone on August 31. This will give the developers two months to make changes, if needs be.

As for the specs, well, Bungie has revealed that the game will require a beefy PC for its recommended specifications, however it’s quite forgiving in the minimum spec arena.
