With the Destiny 2 PC beta about a month away, it’s time to start thinking about what sort of innards your computer is going to need to run the game well.
Bungie dropped a bunch of specs last night, detailing those requirements, but take note: This is for the upcoming beta, things could change by the time the final game releases.
The folks at Bungie dropped those PC specs in two bundles. Here’s your typical rundown of the minimum and recommended builds for your computer:
Intel – Core i3-3250
AMD – FX-4350
Nvidia – GeForce GTX 660 2GB
AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Intel – Core i5-2400
AMD – Ryzen R5 1600X
Nvidia – GeForce GTX 970

Then Bungie outlined specs for folks who are planning to upgrade their system, listing hardware that is available today and runs the game well. In this case, the team included minimum specs, recommended specs and what Bungie uses in the machines they demo the game on at events.
