Destiny 2 for PC Gets Release Date for Leviathan Raid and More
Bungie revealed the roadmap for the first content additions to the upcoming PC version of Destiny 2, including the Leviathan raid and more.
Today Bungie revealed the roadmap for the content updates coming to the PC version of Destiny 2 at and after the launch on October 24th.
At launch, we’ll get the first Nightfall in both normal and prestige mode, and guided games. On November 1st, PC gamers will be able to enjoy the Leviathan raid and the beginning of Trials of the Nine.
On November 7th, we’ll get the prestige mode of the raid, alongside its guided games.
On top of this, we get a handy list of issues that currently affect the PC build of the game, while we don’t know if any of them will be fixed by launch. You can read the full list below.
- SLI, HDR, and VSYNC: Players may experience some rare issues when enabling SLI, HDR, or disabling VSYNC in some non-native resolutions. For the best experience, players are encouraged to use these features while running at their display’s maximum available resolution.
- Saxophone Errors when Launching: Players may erroneously encounter Saxophone errors when launching the Destiny 2 application directly from the .exe file. Players who encounter this issue must close the application and relaunch through Blizzard’s Battle.net app.
- Idling to Title Screen: In some activities, players who are returned to the title screen due to idling may be unable to log back in. Players who encounter this issue must close and relaunch the Destiny 2 application.
- Login after Disconnects: A generic error code may appear to players who lose internet connection, which may block an affected player from logging back in even after reconnecting. Players who believe they are encountering this issue should close the Destiny 2 application and relaunch.
- Buffalo Errors on multiple PCs: Players may encounter Buffalo errors when logging in to Destiny 2 on multiple PCs at the same time. To prevent this issue, players must ensure that they are logged out of Destiny 2 on any PC that they do not currently intend to play on.
- Cursor in Tri-Monitor Configurations: Changing resolution between 5760×1080, 4080×768, and 3072×768 may trap the mouse cursor in the right-most monitor. Players who encounter this issue should ALT+TAB out of the Destiny 2 application, then back. Players may also toggle Windowed Mode by pressing ALT+ENTER.
- Tri-Monitor Depth of Field: DOF effects may be overly aggressive on some tri-monitor configurations. Players who encounter issues with DOF can disable this feature in the Graphics Settings.
- Windows 10 Game Bar: The Windows 10 game bar may not work in Fullscreen Mode. Affected players who wish to use this feature should use Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen Mode.
- NumPad Binding: Players are not able to bind controls to most NumPad keys.
- Screen Bounds on AZERTY Keyboards: Players may receive an incorrect key prompt when adjusting screen bounds on an AZERTY keyboard.
- IME in Fullscreen: Players who are running Input Method Editors may encounter a black screen or delay when inputting characters in Fullscreen Mode. For the best experience, these players are encouraged to play in Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen Modes.
- Closing Application: When closing Destiny 2 on PC, players must close the application via mouse input. Controllers cannot select the in-game button to close the Destiny 2 application.
- Corporate and University Networks: Some players may be unable to play Destiny 2 on corporate or university networks. Players who encounter this issue must contact their IT department, to meet the connectivity standards outlined in our Network Troubleshooting Guide.
Looks like things are finally gearing up for launch. It has been a bit of a wait on pin and needles for PC gamers that really wanted to try the game, especially considering all the impressions and spoilers coming from the console side, but hopefully, we’re looking at a smooth launch, considering that the PC beta was great.
Destiny 2 is currently available for both PS4 and Xbox One, while PC players have just a few more days to wait until the release on Windows via Battle.net on October 24th. The game is already available for pre-load on PC.
