BlizzCon 2018 has had some interesting announcements, with one of the biggest coming from those behind the record-breaking Destiny 2. After attracting millions of fans across the globe, it was revealed today (November 2) that Destiny 2 would be available for free to PC players from now until November 18, via Blizzard's Battle.net gaming platform.
Once claimed, players don't just have the ability to download the game in the two week period, but to play forever. It's not just good news for those who haven't purchased the game in the past however.
Existing players will receive an exclusive in-game emblem, not available anywhere else, that will be assigned to their accounts in December to commemorate the first anniversary of being on Battle.net.
“We know Destiny players that want to play on PC expect an amazing experience, whether it’s on their own or with their friends -- so, our paramount concern was to keep the discerning requirements of the PC community in mind, and welcoming the Battle.net and Bungie PC communities together,” said Steve Cotton, game director for Destiny 2: Forsaken at Bungie. He added, “With this gift we look forward to seeing new Guardians in our universe.”
Destiny 2 PC is playable on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. Minimum system requirements for the PC game are an Intel Core i3-3250, Intel Pentium G4560, or an AMD FX-4350, along with a GeForce GTX 660 2GB, GTX 1050 2GB, or Radeon HD 7850.
