Destiny 2 has finally arrived on PC with a whole new platform of gamers now able to enjoy Bungie's expansive space shooter.
"It’s not every day that you get to welcome a new community to a game, but today we’re very excited to welcome PC players to the incredible universe of Destiny 2,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision.
“And with the unique partnership between Activision, Bungie and Blizzard, we’re giving players a gaming experience they won’t soon forget. Time to defeat Ghaul on triple monitor widescreen.”
However, as to be expected with Bungie's first foray into PC gaming with Destiny, the game is showing some issues for players on Day 1.
"For the best experience, it is recommended that players update their drivers to their most recent versions, and accept any Windows updates that have yet to be applied before accessing the Destiny 2 on PC," warned a Bungie Help article for new PC users.
"Additionally, as an initial troubleshooting step when encountering an issue, players should close and relaunch the Destiny 2 client and Blizzard application.
Bungie has also advised that players who continue to encounter issues with the game delete their existing CVARS.xml file.
The help team have said though that when the game is relaunched it will generate a fresh CVARS.xml file.
