Key Differences Between Destiny 2 on PC and Console

Unlike its predecessor, Destiny 2 is PC-bound, due to launch on the platform Oct. 24. For those that skipped the console version, there are several key differences in comparison to the PS4 and Xbox One equivalent that you should be aware of. Most of these changes are positive, allowing for a greater degree of customization and a few PC-specific tweaks that suggest this version of Destiny 2 has indeed been well tailored to take advantage of the platform. Without further ado, let’s review the major differences between PC and console versions:


Perhaps the biggest boon for PC owners is that Destiny 2 is able to be run at an unlocked framerate. Where console versions are restricted to 30 frames-per-second – even on the boosted PS4 Pro and forthcoming Xbox One X – PC players will be able to run the game at a buttery smooth 60 frames-per-second or higher, provided your rig can handle it. Destiny 2 looks far better when played at this higher frame rate and will feel like a much grander graphical improvement over its predecessor to anyone that has played the previous game. Destiny 2 plays smoothly and responsively at this higher frame rate, which is exactly what you want from a fast-paced first-person shooter.

We’ve listed the recommended specs below for PC owners wanting to achieve 60+ frames-per-second:

CPU

  • Intel: Core i5-2400 3.4 GHz or i5 7400 3.5 GHz
  • AMD: Ryzen R5 1600X 3.6 GHz

GPU

  • AMD: Radeon R9 390 8GB
