Destiny 2 PC beta: here's what's changing from the console version

For more on Destiny 2, read what the game's developers had to say in response to your questions about the upcoming sequel as part of our IGN First coverage and read about the minimum specs required for the Destiny 2 PC beta before it begins later this month.

In Quickplay, matchmaking times will be shortened but at the expense of skill levels being less emphasized in the process. The option reduces loading times comparatively, with the trade-off being that Skill is no longer factored, so there's no guarantee that your opponents are near the same level as you. Based on the latest blog from Bungie, it appears that the developers were not aware of this glitch until players found it in the console beta. This change is created to give players more time to actually play and use their abilities, and paired with the trigger for the Mercy rule being pushed out will prevent too many abruptly short matches.

Destiny 2 won't play nicely with some common PC tools, but Bungie has solutions, workarounds and explanations.

Bungie has also revealed that while the overlay functionalities of hardware performance monitors will not be compatible with the game, they will still be able to function in the background. According to Gamespot, such glitches include the Infinite Super Glitch, in which Infinite Supers function properly until a player loses an eye.

Warlocks now have the same melee range as all other classes, and Bungie has also fixed the "warlock slide" glitch. So awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it. Thanks to those in the console Beta who helped us track this down.

The time it takes to charge up Super Abilities has been reduced, as Bungie admitted that was an issue in the console beta.

With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

Destiny 2 launches September 6 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

This was one of my chief complaints with the console beta, so it's great to see Bungie react. That has been changed to make that longer cooldown more worth it with a damage buff against PvE enemies.

"We want abilities to be slightly more rare, but worth it". Like the console beta, it didn't have much danger of ruining anything in the PC beta, but it's good to know that it has been fixed for the main game.

TWEAKED: Increased Power Ammo drops in PvE This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks. Power ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants. The PC version is scheduled to be released on October 24.
