We managed to get our grubby little mits on Destiny 2 on PC at the nVidia booth during our time at E3. Running at a beautiful resolution of 4K on an Acer Predator IPS G-Sync display at 60 FPS, using an Intel Core i7-7700K & nVidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. We’ve embedded our raw gameplay capture of our playthrough below.
We took a brief look at the games settings and could see the game was locked on medium, which still looked fantastic. Obviously being in a pre-alpha stage, Bungie didn’t want us trying out other settings. This was presumably done to allow us to experience the pre-alpha gameplay at its best.
Bungie hasn’t had a game on PC since Halo 2, so naturally we were a little skeptical of how it may perform and hold up to its console version. It must be said that even in its pre-alpha state Destiny 2 runs beautifully and looks amazing.
From the brief 14 minutes of gameplay we experienced, it felt like Bungie took fan feedback on board and to heart around Destiny’s story. Its already feeling a lot more fleshed out. The guns feel like they carry a bit more punch now and not too floaty like the original. Damage values will most like change prior to launch as part of the balancing act of so many different weapons being in the game.
We will have more as we approach the Destiny 2 PC launch date, if you buy a GeForce GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti between now and June 27, nVidia will toss in a free copy of Destiny 2 on PC when it releases, and early access to the multiplayer beta in August.
