Bungie has shared a few details about its upcoming PC beta for Destiny 2.
According to the developer, the beta will include the Homecoming Story Mission, the Inverted Spire Strike, the Countdown PvP mode on the Midtown map, and the Control PvP mode on a brand new map called Javelin-4. As well as this content, the beta also introduces a number of balance changes that have been made based on feedback from the recent console beta.
However, it’s not all good news, Bungie also revealed that a number of third-party applications that are used by several PC players will not work with Destiny 2. To start with, OBS and XSplit will not be supported for game capture in exclusive full screen. However, the following will be supported for game capture:
- To capture while playing in Exclusive Fullscreen:
- Hardware capture through methods such as Elgato, AVerMedia, or a dedicated streaming PC is supported.
- NVIDIA Shadowplay and AMD ReLive are supported.
- To capture while playing in Windowed Mode (including Borderless Fullscreen):
- OBS and XSplit Screen Capture mode is supported.
- OBS and XSplit Window Capture mode is supported.
As well as this, third-party applications that make use of on-screen overlays, such as chat and frame rate monitors will not work with Destiny 2, including Discord, Mumble, EVGA Precision XOC, MSi Afterburner, and Fraps.
“Some applications that people use when they play games try to add code to the game client. In the right hands, this can enable some nice features to enhance your experience as a player,” Bungie explains. “In the wrong hands, this can be destructive to the world we share in the game. To help ensure that every player will have a fair shot at fun and glory in Destiny 2 on the PC, we’ll resist attempts from applications to add code to Destiny. Our game needs to be the foremost authority on your fate as a Guardian.”
The Destiny 2 PC beta kicks off on August 28th for players who have pre-ordered the game and August 29th for everyone else.
Destiny 2 launches September 6th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with
