Vicarious Visions is working on the PC version of Destiny 2, but they don’t want you to call it a port of Bungie’s core game.
“We don’t want anybody looking at the game as a console port,” Bungie’s David Shaw told PC Gamer. “We wanted to make sure that it feels like a PC game, it plays like a PC game.
“So we kind of have embarked on an interesting situation. We’re not outsourcing it. Instead, we’ve developed this true partnership with Vicarious Visions in Albany, New York. We look at them as an extended part of the dev team.”
The PC version of Destiny 2 benefits from features the console versions won’t. For starters, it has an uncapped framerate compared to the 30fps rate on Xbox One and PS4; not even the PS4 Pro will offer 60fps. The PC version also supports keyboard and mouse, custom key mapping and adjustable field-of-view settings. In terms of visuals, up to a 21:9 aspect ratio and 3820×2160 resolution will be offered. The title is also the first third-party game to feature exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net service.
Which version of Destiny 2 are you planning on playing? The title heads to PC, Xbox One and PS4 in September.
