    Hoping this runs fine on 4c8t cpus and you don't get bottlenecks that require 6c/12t cpus and above.

    The recommended spec asks for an i5 which are 4/4 so you're good to go :)

    Jackfrags has put up 4k60 footage of the PC beta we're about to play, it looks very very good.

    The PC reveal was done on a 7700K / GTX1080Ti system @ locked 4K/60FPS.

    You should be good on any modern 4c/8t CPU I imagine as long as its paired with a decent GPU.

    Going to be comparing it on my i7 4770s & R5 1600. If I have time I will also be adding in comparisons using my 1070/ GTX Titan (OG) and GTX690 (for a laugh). Might even give it a go on my laptop which with a i7 4700MQ / GTX780m roughly compares to a desktop 4c/8t + 1050Ti combo.

    In what may the first time an aspect of the PC version is arguably worse than the console version, Destiny 2 PC is region locked;

    https://www.bungie.net/en/Help/Article/46125

    This means clans will have to cater by region, and signups via external sites like the100.io will have to point out their specific region in the future.
    It's not a big deal to me and it means we won't see the bizarre international matchmaking that's plagued the first game anymore, but it does shrink the pool of players we can play with. The positive side effect is that latency issues will shrink significantly compared to the first game.

    If you are used to PC gaming this is very typical standard fare since every major game has been region locked anyway and most players are loathe to affect their latency by playing with others across the pond.

    will they not allow different region logins?

    like in overwatch i can join Europe and US servers by just changing the region before starting the game?

    Looks awesome this game! Just ordered the digital deluxe on GMG for £65, whilst they had it discounted. :)

    Got given the beta key immediately & downloading now. :D

    Just to make sure, the only pre-order bonus is the extra day of beta right?

    You also get an exotic weapon that otherwise wouldn't be available in the game until the end of the year.

    Part way through the vid it shows the options. It seems that he has most things set to medium. Still looks OK though.

    I know that at Gamescom the settings were dislayed at medium but was in fact running on high since the developers haven't finished the graphical options yet, I don't know if that's still the case for the PC beta. Whatever the settings actually are, it does look really good I feel. It's not as technically accomplished as The Division (that's a really beautiful game on high settings) but it's still a slick looking game.

    Anyone planning on grouping up and doing the strike and a bit of mp?

    The strike is easy enough and doesn't take that long from when I played it on PS4.

    Same here, still haven't received any code. It seems that amazon doesn't offer keys to early access beta (Oct 28) but just to open beta (Oct 29-31). I thought open beta was available to all...:confused:
