Destiny 2 PC Will Be Available Exclusively Through Blizzard’s Battle.net

Destiny 2 will be available on PC exclusively through Blizzard’s Battle.net platform, it has been announced.

The news was confirmed during the Destiny 2 reveal event, where Blizzard president Mike Morhaime appeared to confirm that players would be able to use Blizzard’s service to download games, explore, and connect with each other. Of course, Battle.net’s in-built friends list and chat functionality will work with Destiny 2.

According to a press release, the PC version will offer “4K resolution support (3820×2160), uncapped framerate, full mouse and keyboard support with custom key mapping, text chat, an adjustable field of view, a detailed PC settings screen, and 21:9 monitor support.”

The move makes sense given that Destiny 2 is published by Activision, parent company of Blizzard. Battle.net has proven itself to be very robust in handling large online gaming communities, given that is used for World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo 3, and Heroes of the Storm, among other titles.

Destiny 2 for PC will be available at retail too, for those that don’t want to purchase the game through digitally. However, the game will no doubt still utilise Blizzard’s client to run. Destiny 2 is the first third-party title to be available to purchase on Battle.net.

Destiny 2 is headed to PC in addition to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will offer PS4-exclusive content until at least Fall 2018. An open beta will be available to everyone sometime this summer, but if you pre-order the game you can play the beta early.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
