Destiny 2: Changes Coming to PC Beta Following Console Testing

Destiny 2 will launch with more than 50 hours of story content Destiny 2: Changes Coming to PC Beta Following Console Testing

We remain committed to creating a positive and fair in-game experience in all of our products, and believe that this is a necessary measure in bringing you a great gaming experience on PC.

In Bungie's latest weekly blog post, multiplayer design lead Lars Bakken explained that several adjustments were being made to Destiny 2's PvP game modes, known as the Crucible.

The upcoming beta for Destiny 2 PC will mark the first time that the massively popular sci-fi shooter can be played on the PC, as Destiny was only available for consoles. Starting off, the matchmaking systems used in the Quickplay and Competitive playlists will be tuned individually.

The studio has opted to have parameters based on whether the players are participating in a Quickplay or Competitive game.

There's apparently so much content, at one point in development players were reaching the end of the character progression at around the 55-hour mark, and there was still more PVE stuff left to experience. Instead of focusing on the skill of players and organizing matchmaking in that way, Quickplay will simply slot everyone into a match in the interest of speed and reducing wait times.

We also learn that the game's beta did not have a relevant mechanic that causes enemy elemental shields toe explode when depleted by an energy weapon.

"Overall, I think the match was much longer than just the hours on the court". I once I kind of got on a roll, I started serving better.

Matchmaking for the Competitive mode will focus on putting Guardians of a similar skill level together.

FIXED: Infinite Super Glitch Infinite Supers are all well and good until someone loses an eye.

The methods that some third-party applications use to add features (inserting code into the game client) are the same as some of the methods hackers and cheaters use to disrupt the experience of other players.

FIXED: Warlocks now have the same Melee Range as all other classes With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us.

Destiny 2 PC Beta changes, fixes and tweaks include updates for Quickplay and Competitive. PC Beta players will also experience increased in the damage caused by a grenade in the game's PvE.

This is the final weekend of Trials of Osiris in Destiny, as Bungie shifts its focus to Destiny 2 in preparation for its September 6 release. The PC version is scheduled to be released on October 24. The beta will then open to everyone on Tuesday, August 29, and run through Thursday, August 31.
